What exactly is anyone proposing in this thread?

During drug trials every potential side effect must be reported even if it cannot be attributed to the drug itself. When testing drugs that treat schizophrenia or other mental disorders, there tend to be lots of reports of psychiatric side effects because everyone in the test has psychiatric problems. Almost every drug has the potential side effect of the problem it is attempting to fix because of this.

There are very serious and scary side effects to some drugs, and the risk to benefit ratio has to be discussed between doctors and patients. What is more scary to me than these medications/side effects are people with no medical (and possible scientific) background discussing how drugs should possibly be restricted to patients. How many people who are dismissing Fanapt have ever read one of the clinical trials that have been performed on it?

It seems like every mass murder involves psychotic drugs these days. That's all I'm saying.

Correlation does not denote causation.



That's way too broad an assumption you're making. Almost as bad as linking wearing a shirt to mass murder simply because it seems like every mass murder is wearing a shirt these days.

So let's run the regression analysis and tell me the predictive value of psychotropic drugs in school shootings. Fire up some correlations of coefficients.

And then compare that to shirt color or any other variable over the last decade or so.

When is the last school shooting that didn't involve the killers being on these drugs?

Well sure, because these people are psychotic.

this is why i keep saying the sample size of known mass murderers the last 30 years should make it easier to come to better conclusions.

in many ways the results are along the lines of cognitive dissonance
