Media ignore Big Pharma angle after Florida mass shooting

The mainstream media has not questioned how serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) or drugs may be linked to mass shootings given that they are funded by Big Pharma ad revenue.

    Pharmaceutical corporations spent nearly $6 billion on TV, magazine and digital advertisements in 2016 alone. Sadly, almost every suspected mass shooter in the United States was on psychiatric drugs.

    “It doesn’t surprise me that media companies are getting into pharma advertising, given the total value at stake in pharma sales,” said Brian Fox, a consultant with McKinsey & Company.

    “As information about the [Florida] perpetrator emerges, a relative confides to a newspaper that the ‘troubled youth’ who committed the mass murder was on psychiatric medications – you know, those powerful, little understood, mind-altering drugs with fearsome side effects including ‘suicidal ideation’ and even ‘homicidal ideation,’” WND’s David Kupelian said.

    Dr. Moira Dolan warned that “SSRIs, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, are the pharmaceutical companies latest cash cows. Their use has skyrocketed in the last 10 years.”

    They have been nicknamed “Chemical Babysitters” and as designated anti-depressants, “they are causing dozens of murders, thousands of psychoses and are altering the minds of millions of users,” Dolan added.

    Confessed Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz was on SSRIs. Cruz, who had a Jewish mother, was given up for adoption. On a Instagram post, he said he was “glad” he never met his real mother because she “was a Jew,” CNN reported.

    He said of his birth mother: “My real mom was a Jew. I am glad I never met her.”

    Before Cruz carried out his mass killing at the Florida high school this week, police responded to his home 39 times over a seven-year period, according to documents obtained by the news outlet.

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office listed the emergencies at Cruz’ Parkland home as inter alia “mentally ill person,” “child/elderly abuse,” “domestic disturbance” and “missing person,” KTLA reported.

    A student from the same school where Cruz gunned down 17 people, Brody Speno, told the network that the police visited Cruz’s home “almost every other week”. Speno said he knew Cruz from elementary school. He described him as “an evil kid”. Speno added: “Something wasn’t right about him. He was off.”

    Cruz, who posted images of himself on Instagram posing with guns and knives while enrolled at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, made an alarming online comment about a recent mass shooting. “Man I can do so much better,” he wrote.

    The FBI was directly tipped off last month that Cruz had a desire to conduct a school shooting, but they failed to follow it up.

    Numerous mainstream media outlets meanwhile spread the false claim that Cruz belonged to an white extremist group, after the Anti-Defamation League said that a white supremacist group had claimed ties with the shooter.

    “A spokesperson for the white supremacist group Republic of Florida (ROF) told the Anti-Defamation League on Thursday, February 15, that Nikolas Cruz [….] was associated with his group,” the ADL reported. The ADL quoted a man named Jordan Jereb.

    “Jereb added that ROF had not ordered or wanted Cruz to do anything like the school shooting,” the ADL wrote in a blog post that was quickly quoted by ABC News and The Associated Press.

    Law enforcement agencies however say they have no evidence so far to support this claim, Politico reported.

    “There are no indications in the group chat that any member, including Cruz, is or was part of a white nationalist or white supremacist group,” according to CNN.
