The Colorado Shooter Was on Psycho Drugs

Writes Andy Sirkis:

The news is out. The killer, James Holmes, who dressed up as The Joker and shot up a movie theater full of people in Colorado, had been taking Zoloft, the same dangerous psychotropic drug that the Columbine killer, Eric Harris, had been taking.  According to the information released by the judge in the case, Homes had also been taking a drug called Clonazepam.  How long do we have to wait until there is a thorough investigation into the dangers these drugs pose to society?  It’s far easier to blame video games and use the tragedies to target innocent gun owners.  Big Pharma and their bought and paid for stooges in government must be stopped.

UPDATE Don’t miss my podcast tomorrow with Peter Breggin, MD, on the effects of psychiatric drugs on school children and killers.
