“We want the records before they ask for more money for mental health, which could be dangerous. We want the records to know what kind of mental health treatment he was receiving. We need to know what he was taking.” — Patricia Sabato

Last week, Newtown mother Patricia Sabato, a mother who is an advocate certified under the state General Assembly, along with Ablechild, a national nonprofit parent organization that focuses on informed consent and the right to refuse psychiatric screening and drug treatment, started a petition to make sure the necessary steps to ensure that the complete autopsy/toxicology results of alleged Sandy Hook shooter, Adam Lanza, be released to the public. Specifically, the toxicology tests that would determine whether Lanza was yet another school shooter under the influence of, or in withdrawal from, psychiatric drugs, documented to cause violent behavior.

She garnered more than 200 signatures in two days around Newtown calling for the state to release Lanza’s autopsy/toxicology records. She’s also testified before a state legislative subcommittee studying mental health services in the wake of the Dec. 14 shooting.

“Adam Lanza wasn’t born evil,” Sabato said. “We want the records before they ask for more money for mental health, which could be dangerous. We want the records to know what kind of mental health treatment he was receiving. We need to know what he was taking.”

“I watched my own child turn into a monster on medication. I know first-hand the affects of this type of medication,” Sabato said. Sabato sites evidence that 9 out of the 10 mass shooting suspects were on some type of psychotropic medication.

Psychiatry’s Weapon of Mental Destruction (WMD)—The Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

In 1952, the first hydrogen bomb was detonated and the American Psychiatric Association, APA, published its first book of mental illnesses: the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM.

No one, then, could have imagined that this seemingly innocuous manual would be more destructive, and result in producing more victims, than a nuclear weapon.

Since then the DSM has mushroomed and with each revised DSM untold millions carry the scars from its devastating effects.

Oddly enough, governments seem oblivious to the fallout of psychiatry’s arbitrary and devastating mental illness labels. Why? Could the answer lie in the extraordinarily profitable relationship between psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industrial complex? The fact is pharmaceutical companies can’t push their latest mind-altering chemical concoctions until the deep-thinkers of psychiatry first vote the mental illness into existence. Then, unfortunately, the unsuspecting public becomes ground zero for these pharmaceutical Weapons of Mental Destruction (WMD).

Criminal Psychiatric Diagnosing: A Side Effect of Soderbergh’s Latest Film

In this article investigative journalist Kelly Patricia O’Meara looks at how Steven Soderbergh’s “psychological thriller,” Side Effects, clearly demonstrates two things: the fraud and criminality of psychiatric diagnosing. In this article O’Meara writes:

“Aside from the razzle-dazzle of yammering on about every antidepressant known to man (including a new and fictitious antidepressant called Ablixa), some very brief blather about the adverse side effects of the new psychiatric drug, psychiatrist/patient sexual abuse and, oh yeah, a bloody murder scene, there really isn’t anything new to get excited about.

“That is until one considers that psychiatric diagnosing is behind every element of the story. And it is with this element that issues need to be considered if one is to truly appreciate the gift that Soderbergh has given his audience.”
