Dr Ross is not universally respected.

With known psych patients perhaps there needs to be more controlled testing (inside a lockup) before we turn them loose on society with a bottle of pills. But the civil libertarians might object to young mothers, teenagers, or veterans being constrained while the medical types figure out the right formulation for their conditions.

I'm still partial to the Phase of the Moon theory for miscreant behavior.:tongueout:

I want to see the double-blind study that proves Dr. Ross' claim that anti-psychotic meds are a cause of homicidal behavior.

Trust them! There is no danger from drugs!
All those warnings on your TV screens every night advising you to "tell your doctor" if you experience thoughts of suicide, depression, violence, etc., and not meant for you, but the monkey they originally tested the drug on!

Statistics tell us the medical community kills more people each year then 10 times the firearms deaths.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 00:21.
