REAL CLEAR HEALTH – FNC’s Tucker Carlson asked the question about whether mind-altering SSRI drugs have a connection to the massive increase in mass murders and suicides, particularly among young American men.
“Did it work? Let’s see. Over the very same period, the suicide rate in the United States jumped by 35%. Did it work? Well, millions of people got on anti-suicide drugs and we wound up with many more suicides. So, maybe it’s not working.”
TUCKER CARLSON: They’re numbed by the endless psychotropic drugs that are handed out in every school in the country by crackpots posing as counselors and of course, they’re angry.

So was 27-year-old Steven Kazmierczak who murdered six people at Northern Illinois University. In 2012, you may recall when 25-year-old James Holmes walked into a movie theater and shot 82 people. He was on Zoloft.
The list goes on and on and on and on. It includes the shooter at the Washington Navy Yard in 2013. That would be 34-year-old Aaron Alexis. It also includes Dylan Roof. He’s the 21-year-old who shot up the church in Charleston.
Now, he was apparently a racist, and we’ve heard a lot about that. Fine, but we’ve heard next to nothing about the fact that he was taking SSRIs, he and many, many others. You’re not supposed to notice, but some have … READ MORE.
