RMM-054: Antidepressants and Homicide in the USA Rocky Mountain Mason

    • Arts

In this episode, Ben explores the controversial but well documented correlation between certain antidepressant drugs and homicidal mania. 

Nearly every mass shooter seems to have a history with this class of drugs, including Eric Harris (Columbine), who was on Luvox, and James Holmes (Aurora movie theater), who was prescribed a high dose of Zoloft. 
Could these drugs lead to a type of emotional disassociation, where the reward-reflex is vitiated, and a type of bio-chemical echo builds a lethal impulse? Or is it just access to firearms?
