FINNISH KILLER WAS ON ANTI-DEPRESSANTS

Progressive Review - Like many mass killers before him, Finnish murder Pekka-Eric Auvisen was on anti-depressants. And like many mass killers before him, the American media is not talking about this. The Finnish journal Itellehti, however, reports that Auvisen's girlfriend had an online exchange days before the killings:

Auvisen: Are we okay? Our relationship and friendship means a lot.

Girlfriend: All okay

And later. . . .

Auvisen: Sorry I have behaved in this way. Medication makes me frustrated and aggressive.

As we have noted in the past, while the percent of anti-depressant users who turn violent may be quite small, it does no one any good to ignore the issue the way the media and health profession have.
