Eddie Ray Routh, Suspect In Chris Kyle Chad Littlefield Murders, Was Diagnosed PTSD

Eddie Ray Routh of the Marine Corp Reserve is on trial for the murder of Chris Kyle the “American Sniper” and is diagnosed PTSD. Routh has been charged with one count of capital murder and two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of Kyle, author of the best-selling book "American Sniper," and his friend Chad Littlefield at a shooting range in Glen Rose, Texas.
Upon his arrest for the crime Routh told authorities he was a Marine veteran who was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Police took him to Green Oaks Hospital for psychiatric care and he was on suicide watch. The hospital would not release his records because of privacy laws. The court will likely not disclose his pharmaceutical drug use though. Previously Routh was involved in burglary regarding pill bottles. It is extremely likely Routh was prescribed PTSD drugs due to his erractic behavior and that is how the Military deals with PTSD patients.
The Army Surgeon General's office is backed away from its long-standing endorsement of prescribing psychotropic drugs for PTSD. They have a number of regional medical commanders against using tranquilizers such as Xanax and Valium to treat PTSD.

News reports have reported a recent Army memo. The memo indicates that the Army Medical Command has taken a new look at PTSD drugs known as benzodiazepines. These drugs such as Xanax and Valium, could intensify rather than reduce combat stress symptoms and lead to addiction. So the Army is now backing away from Xanax and Valium in their treatment of PTSD.

We are not sure if Eddy Ray Routh was prescribed Xanax or Valium, but it is likely he was using some pharma drug as a ‘treatment”. His defense indicates that they will be defending Routh on temporary insanity. We think they should say the pharma drugs did it. The track record of pharma surely demonstrates that.

America and the World is Still Not Talking About Psychotropic Drugs and Violence

About two years ago The Orlando Sentinel, along with WOFL-TV, held a forum to look at the Sandy Hook Massacre.
The attendees were government representatives and law enforcement. The Sheriff indicated at this particular forum that the majority of crimes his deputies prosecuted involve handguns and that the problem is due to criminals and the mentally ill’s access to these guns. The connection between mental illness and guns was barely addressed at this public forum in Orlando and it is rarely addressed across America. This is puzzling as the Sandy Hook mass murderer was clearly mentally ill and on psychotropic drugs. The same with the Colombine killers and a multitude of similar campus shootings. It seems to be evident that today’s jails in America are the largest mental health facilities.
Talking heads on television and politicians across American always talk about gun ownership as being the problem. What is never addressed is the clear connection between psychotropic drugs and gun violence. The issue of mental illness is addressed if a killer has a history of mental illness. The fact that this killer has seen a psychiatrist or has been on psychotropic drugs or some anti-depressants is never raised. Why isn’t the psychiatrist or doctor who prescribed the drugs not slammed? Why arn't pharmaceutical firms on trial? There is a clear connection that psych drugs are the catalyst for violence, guns or other weapons. That is the discussion we should be talking about.
If jails have become the largest mental health facilities in America then why are jails and prisons such a revolving door. Why arn’t the violators cured? Anyone who has lived over two decades can see that convicts commit crimes and remain criminals in prison and if they are released they continue to commit crimes out of prison and then they end up doing more time. If prisons are full of mental health professionals then why do ex-cons still commit crimes? Should we not be looking at the “mental health professionals”? Doesn't anyone see their programs and their science doesn’t work?
Why continue to fund them at the state and county and Federal levels? Psych drugs are not the answer they are the cause!

Mother Cuts Throat of Her Children all under 2 Years in Olympia Washington. Were psychiatric Drugs to Blame?

CNN and local news agencies reports:. The Washington state mother Christina Booth, 28 has been charged with attempted murder after authorities say she cut her children's throats in an attempt to keep them quiet. The children were 2 years old and 6 month old twins. That is right she cut the throat of two 6 month old babies.
Olympia, Washington police saw the twins were on the couch crying uncontrollably and the 2 year old with lying in dry blood all over her upstairs. The children were taken to the hospital for surgery and are in stable condition according to authorities.
So what drives a mother to do such a thing? Psychotropic drugs! She was suffering from postpartum depression and she was on psychiatric drugs. Do you think the drugs worked? They certainly worked as an agent to kill.
The father Thomas Booth indicated that he and his wife were both intoxicated and his wife was slurring her words.
Local news further reported that the mother indicated she confessed that she knew if she killed the kids the house would be quiet for her husband Thomas. She told police that her husband never helped with the kids and she hit a breaking point, and she said they will be quiet now. The husband said his wife takes the kids out of his presence when they start to cry.
The husband has not been charged, but sounds like he added to the pressure to his wife and kids. The husband is an active duty soldiers and stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. This is the same base where Staff Sgt Robert Bales was stationed. Bales killed 16 Afghan civilians while drunk and on psychiatric drugs and is now sentenced to life in prison. The mother is in jail on $3million bail and the children are in protective services.

All because of psychotropic drugs?
