Sandy Hook Massacre

CT Attorney Blames State

Wants to Sue for $100 Mil

A Connecticut attorney blames the state for the brutal massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary -- claiming it FAILED to protect the children from harm's way -- and now he wants to sue for $100 million on behalf of one on the survivors.

According to the Hartford Courant, Irving Pinsky filed legal docs Thursday with the Claims Commissioner, asking permission to sue the state on behalf of a 6-year-old Sandy Hook student who survived the shootings (she was in another classroom at the time).

Pinsky claims the girl, only ID'd as "Jill Doe," suffered emotional and psychological trauma ... this according to local reports.

Pinsky believes the shooting was foreseeable, claiming a "fellow like Adam Lanza would have been known as a potential problem to the police."

The state is immune from most lawsuits, which is why Pinsky must ask for permission to even file the suit. No decision has been made whether or not the suit will go through.

When I saw the headline for this story I thought a group of parents who lost there children was suing the state. Than to real the Article im APPALLED! 26 people died not including him or his mother. Of course someone wants to blame someone but be grateful for what you do have. That school was not in the ghetto or hood. All these shooting like this one are in nice, white areas were this is Never suppose to happen, but it does. But in America this is what we Americans do is Sue! If someone can sue McDonald's because they got burnt because they coffee was hot and didn't have it printed on it so be it. I hope Ct. Don't allow them to have a case. Happy New Year.

The question arises that no one seems to be asking:

If millions of adults own weapons….why don’t we see more ADULTS committing massacres??

Why is there an increase of massacres being committed by the young/teenagers –since the late 80’s – versus by those adults buying the guns?

When examining these massacre incidents, the perpetrators have been found to have been on prescription drugs for neurological problems.
Interestingly the administration of pharmaceuticals for ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety, and other medical labels, given to children and teens who manifest with seeming neurological problems began in the 80’s, peaking in the late 90’s into the 2000’s. Likewise, an increase of prescription drugs for depression and bi-polar for teens and adults. Let’s look at some of those drugs…

If you would examine the prescription drug inserts, required by the FDA to be provided, you will read the following excerpt, or similar side-effects and warnings, on ALL of those drugs that should be of grave concern (brackets and underlines my addition) - and pay close attention to the word “new”:

DRUG: ADDERALL:

“WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATION I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ADDERALL?
...[which includes]
2. MENTAL (PSYCHIATRIC) PROBLEMS:
ALL PATIENTS
• new or worse behavior and thought problems
• new or worse bipolar illness
• new or worse aggressive behavior or hostility

CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS
• new psychotic symptoms (such as hearing voices, believing things that are not true, are
suspicious) or new manic symptoms
TELL YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT ANY MENTAL PROBLEMS YOU OR YOUR CHILD HAVE, OR ABOUT A FAMILY HISTORY OF SUICIDE, BIPOLAR ILLNESS, OR DEPRESSION.
Call your doctor right away if you or your child have any new or worsening mental
symptoms or problems while taking ADDERALL, especially seeing or hearing
things that are not real, believing things that are not real, or are suspicious.”
“Treatment emergent psychotic or manic symptoms, e.g., hallucinations, delusional thinking, or mania in children and adolescents without prior history of psychotic illness or mania can be caused by stimulants at usual doses. If such symptoms occur, consideration should be given to a possible causal role of the stimulant, and discontinuation of treatment may be appropriate”

And at the very end of the drug insert there is this surprising, if not shadowy, declaration:
“THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS. ASK YOUR DOCTOR OR PHARMACIST FOR MORE INFORMATION.”


So what possible additional side-effects can this drug have the company does not want to OPENLY disclose to its consumers…doctors to their patients?

Additionally to consider, there is a major brain developmental difference between a teenager’s brain and a fully developed adult brain: Teenagers’s frontal lobe, responsible for the understanding of consequences, is NOT fully developed, and believed responsible for what we have been blaming on teenage hormonal changes (yet indeed the hormones may be affected, nevertheless).
Now, if the undeveloped brain of a teenager – the developed function (adult’s) of which is to beware of consequences , but teenager’s can NOT – encounters a drug chemical that alters the brain with the real potential to CREATE NEW symptoms of aggression, NEW symptoms of hostility, NEW behavior and thought patterns, and, SPECIFICALLY TO CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS, to CREATE NEW PSYCHOTIC symptoms such as hearing voices, believing in things that are NOT true, or becoming unnecessarily suspicious, or to CREATE NEW MANIC symptoms…that is… NEW, as in NEVER BEFORE THERE, as in CREATED BY…RESULTING FROM: THE PRESCRIBED DRUG…

…then…wouldn’t one understand THAT to be a MAJOR RISK in taking that drug? Do YOU know WHO EXACTLY will have a negative reaction to these drugs? Or when? Or would the teen warn us about?? Can the doctors predict this?? Can the manufacturers? Can the Pharma industry? Can the teen? Or parent? You mean to tell me doctors are playing psychics?

Would not these perhaps cause a teenager with underdeveloped frontal lobe – or even an adult – to engage in such behaviors as massacres??..a brain chemically altered to react in “aggression,” “hostility,” ”hallucinations,” “believing in things NOT true,” “NEW thought patterns and behavior,” “new psychotic symptoms,” …”delusional thinking” ? as described in pharmaceutical package inserts?

Then CLEARLY the MENTAL and EVIL production seems to me to be on the conveyor belts of the Pharmaceutical Industry and those we have been entrained to entrust our health concerns– which NOBODY is looking at nor questioning, particularly those who have been educated and considered elite in investigative journalism.

WHY??

In this age of nano-bio-technology, gene modification, bio-weaponry, neurological alteration, faux foods industrialization – ALL CREATING agents that are NOVEL as in never before existing in nature and mostly NEVER extensively tested for human assimilation – you mean to tell me that no educated, prepared, schooled individual , particularly those entrusted with human safety, has yet taken an investigative approach, the level and sophistication demanded of Secret Intelligence, into the effects upon humans from all these – and for this context here, in particular the mentioned pharmaceuticals?

Let me remind people that the FDA allows pharmaceutical companies to hire their OWN laboratories and teams to “test” drugs for their safety. WHY? Because they are the only ones who can afford the millions it takes to do that.

If you held a patent on these drugs with the promise of making BBBillions, WHO would YOU hire to “test” your drug for approval??? …disagreeable laboratory staff??

Would you then trust your brain, or your young son’s or daughter’s, to people who want to make money from altering the brain – if you knew and understood that those drugs would have the consequences of making your brain do things it has NEVER thought of doing before? REREAD THE ABOVE DRUG SIDE-EFFECTS. Remember, sickness is a perpetual money maker – there’s no planting, cultivation, manufacturing, production, or assembling – or marketing required to create demand!

The ultimate question really is : Why are we being drugged for UNSCIENTIFICALLY “diagnosed” symptoms?? WHY aren’t these epidemic symptoms being properly and scientifically explored as to their ROOT causes?? WHY are we choosing to mask anger, pain, grief, sadness instead of dealing with its causes…working through them or investigating the real probability of their synthetic roots?? WHY are we not looking at what we eat…at what man is producing synthetically in industry – that lines our grocery shelves and produce bins…our agricultural processes…our farming land…our food processing…our commercial manufacturing…our so-called “added-values” – that causes me to digest 1,646 poisons a month at my last count (and each of you!! Count them, they are in your pantry!), of things that are allowed by the FDA to be revealed to me (those not in ingredient lists but allowed cannot be counted!), and that ultimately react chemically with my organism’s own chemistry???...to do WHAT in my body composed of infinite and reacting, but yet to be known by science, compounds?

There is something deeply wrong with a medical society that claims to be scientific in its approach to treating disease based on evidence, but who passes on any illness or symptoms it has not categorized as yet to a realm of “medicine” that does not base its treatment on evidence, namely Psychology and Psychiatry. Medicine does this KNOWING full well that its science does NOT completely understand the human organism – and forget about trying to fully understand the mind. There are no laboratory tests developed to confirm or disprove mental illness. NONE. ANY psychiatrist will confirm this. ASK. Therefore, HOW could you pass up ANY illness or symptom – mind or matter – without researching the cause of it – until you find one?

Remember…. Psychiatry was once removing part of the brain of innocent people…institutionalizing and drugging grief stricken people…institutionalizing and drugging the mentally challenged like those with down syndrome as well as the blind, and more horrors…

Conversely, there is biological evidence- it is KNOWN - that chemicals digested change the brain… that molecules do pass through the “abdominal brain” (blood-brain barrier) straight to the brain and affect the brain and behavior. It is this same process used to determine drugs that claim to help mental illness…the same process that assimilates your nutrients. So….why not investigate how these thousands of chemicals, GMOs, and synthetics in our food, are perhaps (how about definitely!) changing our brain!? …in the same way that many drugs affect people adversely, changing their brain, as all the pharmaceutical inserts, instructions, AND commercials warn us?? ..death…depression…psychosis…violence…and suicide!???

Again it comes down to money. The realm of medicine is not as humanitarian as it wants us to believe.

OPEN YOUR EYES AMERICA !

SHAME on you AMA…SHAME on you Psychiatry…and SHAME on you Journalists and Media for negating to investigate and inform about the so obvious!

Having worked as a paralegal in a law firm for many years, I can tell you that it does not always come down to money. If, in fact, the school was negligent, and not up to code with their security, the State should be held liable. Innocent children died, who will never come back. The parents deserve a credible and honest answer. Sometimes, it takes lawyers to get that.

Lack of grief is creepy and suspicious.
No tears from any of them. See for yourself. Some make the motion of wiping away tears, but if you look....no tears?
