Charleston shooter Dylann Storm Roof, like so many that commit such unspeakable acts, was taking a pharmaceutical drug that profoundly affected his mind. This certainly must be considered to be part of the equation – the drug has been linked with spontaneous outbursts of violence.
The drug was on is called suboxone, a habit-forming narcotic used to treat opiate addiction.
The media generally doesn't touch this topic.
Instead, they play up the tragedy in order to forward an anti-Constitutional agenda by fomenting hate between classes and races.
There is no grand wave of crazy whites killing black people as one is lead to believe by not only the media and political leaders. Paul Joepsh Watson gives a great breakdown of many other truths, like the one just mentioned, that the media won't touch.
Take a moment and watch.
According to a Courier-Journal report, suboxone “is increasingly being abused, sold on the streets and inappropriately prescribed” by doctors. For some users, it is even more addictive than the drugs it’s supposed to help them quit.
As we previously highlighted, virtually every major mass shooter was taking some form of SSRI or other pharmaceutical drug at the time of their attack, including Columbine killer Eric Harris, ‘Batman’ shooter James Holmes and Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza.
As the website SSRI Stories profusely documents, there are literally hundreds of examples of mass shootings, murders and other violent episodes that have been committed by individuals on psychiatric drugs over the past three decades.
Pharmaceutical giants who produce drugs like Zoloft, Prozac and Paxil spend around $2.4 billion dollars a year on direct-to-consumer television advertising every year. By running negative stories about prescription drugs, networks risk losing tens of millions of dollars in ad revenue, which is undoubtedly one of the primary reasons why the connection is habitually downplayed or ignored entirely.
