    Anti-depressants will exacerbate symptoms and cause new problems. The brain is very complex and tweaking a seratonin level here and there could really mess things up.

    I would say, very few people actually have a problem so severe as to warrant a medication like an SSRI. Almost everybody has issues. I feel 100000x better about myself after wearing a suit and improving my diet.


    I'm guessing you're not a doctor. Most mentally ill people do crazy shit when they don't take their medicine. What you said is complete urban-legend bullshit. Read a book.

    Riiiiiight, that is why I've been prescribed prozac (but never took it) and many people I know have taken or have been prescribed prozac. Some people might need medication, but I certainly don't know anyone who does.

    Allopathic docs don't know jack.

    So you want to go against the kind of medicine practiced my educated people all over earth? Your funeral. And I mean that literally.

    Well, if the prozac was supposed to help this guy, it obviously didn't. And I believe it made things worse, just my own suspicion.

    I'll bet you money right now that he wasn't taking it when he did it.

    By the way, ask any psychiatrist what the biggest leap made in the field is and they will all tell you that it is the modern medicines that we have to manage mental illness. 50 years ago the people you are decribing as "medicated" would be permanently institutionalized. You'd have never met them.

    If I were a betting man, I'd be happy to take your money. However, "taking it" is relative since it takes a while for things to return back to normal. We'll see what comes up. The columbine shooters were also taking anti-depressants.
    The same psychiatrists who diagnose the myth that is ADD/ADHD, et al? The same ones who entered the profession to figure out what was wrong with themselves?

    50 years ago, they would have been lobotomized.

    Many people go into fields because of curiosity about themselves. Plenty of firebugs become firemen.

    ADHD is not a myth. There are reliable tools that can be used to diagnose ADHD and can be repeated with the same results by anyone. We know as much about psychiatry as we do any other field of medicine and in many cases more.

    How did he get this far without anyone taking him down? Jeez.

    It happened in a gun-free zone.

    Gun-free to keep people safe!

    there's no such thing as a gun free zone as far as i understand it. schools (note: not colleges) are allowed to be gun free but other than that it's hunting season.

    I think he meant just Virginia.


    Isn't the Pentagon in Arlington, VA?

    There's now all this "evidence" that the shooter was not "mentally right": setting fire, stalking women, writing morbid tales...etc. I recall that the Columbine shooters had the same behavior prior to their mass killing.

    It begs the question, what exactly can we, as a society, do about people who exhibit this kind of behavior. Take all people who are loners with behavioral problems, it must be an exceedingly small minority that subsequently commit such atrocious acts.

    Do we put them under constant surveillance? Do we commit them to an institution against their will? Given our innate love of personal freedom as Americans, what CAN we do?

    I am amazed by how fast the police are working. This shooting only occured about 48 hours ago and investigators are slowly piecing together a motive. I've never seen the police work this fast before.

    You can tell how "serious" this whole shooting incidence has been, when even the President of the US attended the ceremony, not to mention that flags are ordered at half-staff

    Well - the guy left a long and detailed note explaining his motive... That definitely helps
