Although it seems increasingly unlikely he acted alone, Las Vegas Mandalay Bay massacre shooter Stephen Paddock is now known to have been taking prescription psychiatric medications that have been repeatedly linked to mass shootings. As detailed on PsychDrugShooters.com, over 100 mass shooting events have been carried out by people who are taking psychiatric medications.
“Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 58 people and wounded hundreds more in Las Vegas on Sunday with high-powered rifles, was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June that can lead to aggressive behavior,” reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Records from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program obtained Tuesday show Paddock was prescribed 50 10-milligram diazepam tablets by Henderson physician Dr. Steven Winkler on June 21.
Diazepam is a known to promote violent behavior and psychotic episodes. Via the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
“If somebody has an underlying aggression problem and you sedate them with that drug, they can become aggressive,” said Dr. Mel Pohl, chief medical officer of the Las Vegas Recovery Center. “It can disinhibit an underlying emotional state. … It is much like what happens when you give alcohol to some people … they become aggressive instead of going to sleep.”
Pohl, who spoke to the Review-Journal from the Netherlands, said the effects of the drug also can be magnified by alcohol.
A 2015 study published in World Psychiatry of 960 Finnish adults and teens convicted of homicide showed that their odds of killing were 45 percent higher during time periods when they were on benzodiazepines.
As explained on Natural News Blogs:
Recent shootings in the news – Sandy Hook, The Batman Movie Shooting, Columbine, and others all have a common denominator : Prescription drugs were all in their systems at the times these crimes were committed.
Almost every mass shooting over the last 20 years involved a shooter taking psychiatric drugs.
