Apparently his mom called the cops on him regularly.

Apparently his mom accused him of domestic assault, too.

So, once again, probably a case where the police couldn't be arsed to do their job and arrest the little shit.

Supposedly was on SSRI meds (which maybe ought to be renamed G23 Paxilon hydrochlorate, because reasons :geek: ).
Watergate didn't have a body count.

Eh, they actually help one hell of a lot more people than go postal from them.

The one thing I think of whenever someone blames psychotropic meds for shootings: Did you ever stop to think that he was on the meds because he was a f***ing nutbag in the first place? Yes, it's entirely possible that the meds made his nutbaggery worse - because human beings aren't all the same, and sometimes the meds effect different people in different ways. But it's also entirely possible that the meds didn't work, or just didn't work on the violent part of his nuttiness.

BLUF: they don't give those meds to people who are normal and well adjusted.

Wrong one for the wrong person can make them much worse. I have seen a family member go on meds for depression and turn into a suicidal psychotic mess (and then back to normal when off them, minus a hospital stay). I forgot the med in question, but later Dr said It was a horrible choice for the condition in question.

I have seen something similar to what Vonz describes, though not quite as extreme.

He looks like a real winner. Steve Buscemi will play him in the tv movie.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.
