Top Criminal Psychologist on Sandy Hook Massacre: “Every One of These Episodes Is Proceeded By Undiagnosed Mental Illness” (Video)

Leading criminal psychologist Dr. Alan Lipman offered this assessment on the Sandy Hook killings this morning,

“The fact is, the facts are, as in Aurora, as in Arizona, as in Virginia Tech, as in virtually every case the Secret Service studied of these kinds of events… Every one of these episodes is proceeded by an undiagnosed, untreated, mental illness… Over the last 24 hours increasing information has come in from family members, from friends, from students, that Adam Lanza, as you have mentioned, was disturbed, was removed, was isolated.”

    I wish he would have given some ideas on how we can stop this. I am in the medical field and if a person will not take meds, he can only be held for 72 hours and then released. I have reported dangerous persons myself and the police will not do anything before the fact. What is the answer?

  • Mrs. X

    Please. Why must everything have a label or diagnosis? It’s called “evil”. It’s a reality seen throughout history in every corner of the world. As we push God and tradition away from our schools and family it will continue to get worse generation after generation. Everyday in this country thousands of innocent babies are ripped from their mothers’ wombs in the name of choice. Why are we shocked when a lunatic shoots up a class full of 5 year olds?

    The Left will wholeheartedly agree with this premise. The only way to prevent those with undiagnosed mental illness from getting guns is to keeep guns out of everyone’s hands. Can you say ‘compelling state interest”?

  • Time

    And least not forget his father were connected.. This again like the others all had some connection..

  • Folks, for a long time I’ve been begging you to focus on the ‘big picture’…… No…… Bigger…… NO…… BIGGER.

    There’s a reason.

    No amount of laws, regulations, political threats or anything else will stop evil from being evil.

    Agreed, just like it was those 6 million Jewish types loaded with those personal weapons that forced Hitler to come after them…er, wait….

    Let’s make sure that defenseless kids in the womb are regularly whacked on immoral whims with unwilling taxpayer money while conveniently taking each and everyone’s right to defend him or herself. We should force everyone to where special impact suits while driving or walking near roadways to avoid death in auto accidents.

    We’ve continued ceding all this regulatory idiocy to the government in the 50’s and 60’s, and always with the absurd unspoken ideal of some kind of immortality [somehow if we just ban this or throw money at that, we’ll all live happily ever after], when all it really amounts to is having a bureaucrat tell people they don’t have to have any Biblical “fear”, i.e, “respect” or “awe” for their own fallibility or mortality.

    Great results, huh?

    Progressive theft of human dignity from pathetic progressive busybody cockroaches.

  • Sasja

    Mrs. X is right. We have devalued human life so why are we surprised when these atrocities occur.

    This evil man wanted to kill and he wanted a target rich environment. The libs thought having a locked door would keep Evil out. Well, it doesn’t.

    WTF….JAMES HOLMES was being evaluated by a statist commie shrink….VA Tech shooter Cho was under treatment of a psychiatrist. Where does this creep get off claiming the mental illness was ” untreated…undiagnosed ? “…James Holmes was ” very intelligent ” …possibly being trained for classified government program on bio genetic engineering for God know what future Obamacare world where only a select master race is permitted to breed. …There are already reports how ” intelligent ” Lanza was ….and his father high up in GE corporation…. Adam could very well have been recruited into some classified government program and his eugenics training either runamuck….his Tony finger saying REDRUM ….>

    or he was carrying out a subconsciously programmed mission implanted through deep sleep hypnosis by his psychiactric masters.

    Side note: That’s preceded, not proceeded. Completely different meaning.

    You know that if this young monster had been captured alive rather than dead, these same people would be screaming about his rights and wringing their hands over the social factors that pushed him into this horrible deed. And, of course, part of the litany of excuses would be to blame society, and any other unrelated factor that they could think of to avoid putting the blame where it really belongs — squarely on the perpetrator, and the media’s feverish rush to make this miserable worm famous. If the media would act to minimize his posthumous fame, fewer copycats would try the same thing to establish themselves as a personage in history.

    These people are such miserable failures that when they decide to take their own lives, they also seek to take as many innocents with them as possible. If the media had an ounce of responsibility, they would do everything in their power to be sure that the perpetrator was ignored and humiliated in death to discourage others from taking the same route.

    “Every One of These Episodes Is Proceeded By Undiagnosed Mental Illness”

    Think leftists will now clamor for everyone to undergo tests to determine who’s a mental illness risk?


  • RKae

    No, quite the opposite, Doc. The problem is that they ARE diagnosed with “mental illness” and then they are treated with pharmaceuticals and other official quackery.

    The Luvox didn’t help Eric Harris (of Columbine infamy). In fact, it probably pushed him along his insane path.

    Now we’re hearing that this new freak had Asperger’s, which is one of the most questionable syndromes that our psychiatric mountebanks have created in a long while. Look into this kid’s life and you’re going to find a whiner with no father to tell him to cowboy up and quit sniveling. Sniveling becomes narcissism and when narcissism becomes malignant it turns into overblown outward violence.

    Alan Colms was just on the TV telling us that “we need to get rid of the stigma of mental illness.” REALLY? Hell, the problem is that we got rid of the stigma and we let these f*cking loonies walk amongst us while we pretend “they’re not crazy; they’re special.”

    Lock… up… the… crazies… NOW!

    @ GrandmaC: Thanks to the ACLU & the left suing states for “deinstitutionalization” from the 50’s to the 80’s the state run mental institutions were shut down & defunded. There’s not a lot we can do but thank the left! Some on that in this article;

    Bibles aren’t allowed in school anymore but are encouraged in prison. If kids were allowed to read it in school, they may not end up in prison or worse.

    This is a sad situation from every angle, Parent’s have lost their babies, a man has lost his mother and brother, families have been thrown into a darkness that should have never happened, and the confusion is being pointed everywhere but to the truth.

    The truth is, our freedoms were taken away a long time ago, but especially back in ’88 when the government along with the CDC, FDA and big pharma decided to mandate immunization shots. Nobody’s looking into this, how can it not be against our constitution to tell a parent they have to have their child injected intravenously with aborted fetus tissue, insecticides, heavy toxic metals, and other harmful chemicals immunizations. If they don’t have this done they face jail time and their child will be taken away through social services and given those harmful shots anyway. Where’s the freedom?

    Autism is caused by the Ethalmercury in the immunization shots, along with other harmful and even deadly toxins, things that if our children would get a hold of we would be told to call poison control centers and then social services would be called in to investigate. Yet they still promote these harmful toxins as safe. IMO there is absolutely NO SAFE LEVEL OF MERCURY OR THE OTHER TOXINS FOR OUR CHILDREN to ingest intravenously. Ethylmercurric Chloride, the material used as a fungicide (which was banned long ago) is what is used to make thimerosal, this was the main ingrediant in most immunization shots until ’02 when it was supposed to be banned from immunizations but stocked immunizations warehoused by big pharma were still being used until supply ran out, with most going overseas. The flu shot still has Thimerosal in it and although the flu shot is available without Thimerosal the health industry isn’t telling anyone of it’s availability.

    A good book to read on this is called The Age of Autism, Mercury, Medicine, and a MAN-MADE EPIDEMIC. There is all kinds of factual proof that Mercury causes Autism along with other disorders and even hysteria and shockingly enough “worst cases of syphilis”. The book goes back to the very first case of Autism (Mercury Poisoning) back in the late 30’s to early 40’s when first diagnosed, and environmental factors in the persons life at the time. Please read and understand what so many of us are saying.

    A few good sites to go to are:, there’s a good video here please watch it, and the author of this site holds a PhD in Biochemical Engineering and has a son who is neurologically impaired.

    I have noticed a lot of post about suspicions of this young man being off his meds. Please read a post I read on this matter.

    I’m pasting this from a Facebook string from FB friend — Some statements I will add will be in italics.

    Deborah Reinauer Merlin:

    The media fails to report the common connection between taking antidepressants and other mind altering medications and massacre killings. Even though there has not been a direct link established between violent crimes and taking prescription antidepressants and stimulants, the most tragic cases of violent murder by someone on prescription drugs should be noted.

    Jeffrey Weiss went on a shooting rampage on March 21, 2005, at Red Lake High School that left ten dead, including him. Earlier that day, Weiss had killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s girlfriend. He was on Prozac and recently the dosage had been increased. (So it was being monitored, it had been increased.)

    Eric Harris, one of the killers at Columbine High School, was on the antidepressant drug Luvox. Court records show that the prescription for Harris had been filled ten times between April 1998 and March 1999.Three and a half months before the shooting, the dosage had been increased. The Physician’s Desk Reference records show that during controlled clinical trials of Luvox, manic reactions developed in 4 percent of the children given the drug. (Once again, monitored.)

    Thomas Solomon, a fifteen-year-old at Heritage High School in Conyers, Georgia, shot and wounded six classmates. He was on Ritalin at the time.

    Kip Kinkel, a fifteen-year-old at Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon, killed his parents and two classmates and wounded twenty-two other students while on Ritalin and Prozac.

    Shawn Cooper, a fifteen-year-old sophomore at Notus Junior-Senior High School in Notus, Idaho, fired a shotgun at his fellow students. He was on Ritalin.

    In 1989, less than one month after taking his first dose of Prozac, Joseph Wesbecker massacred eight coworkers with an AK-47 before turning the weapon on himself.

    Michael McDermott, convicted of killing seven co-workers, tripled his dosage of Prozac before the shootings. On the witness stand he said he believed that he killed Nazis and not his co-workers. He said an archangel appeared to him before the massacre, telling him that he could prevent the Holocaust if he traveled back in time to 1940 to kill Adolf Hitler and six German generals.

    Brynn Hartman, wife of comedian Phil Hartman, shot and killed her husband and herself while on Zoloft.

    Andrea Yates in Houston, Texas, drowned her five children while on Effexor and Remeron.

    Christopher Pittman shot and killed his grandparents when he was age twelve. He claimed that a voice inside his head told him to kill his grandparents on November 28, 2001.Christopher had recently started to take Zoloft to treat mild depression.

    So as you can plainly see for yourselves, search the cases if you must, someone taking their “meds” on a structured regimen and by a carefully monitored physician or psychiatrist isn’t the solution. Every antidepressant or anti-psychotic drug I have personally studied have had the same warnings of possible increase of depression or suicidal thoughts in children, young adults and elderly patients.

    I am a proud mother of a young adult who happens to have been poisoned by mercury (Autism).

    Heh, sounds like another label to me..

    But the fact is that you are exactly right. You can say “the devil made him do it” or you can say he had “Oedipus Rex Triple Flutterblaster Syndrome.” It doesn’t matter. Some people just choose evil. We need to be able to defend ourselves for this very reason.

    Sadly, someone will always step up to defend the evildoer. How many people still say we should have done nothing about Saddam Hussein — a man who tortured and maimed and started two wars that killed two million people.

    Perhaps Obamacare will open mental hospitals again. There are so many sickos out there and they need to be in a safe place. But that’s not political and Obama’s agenda is Gun Control. Meanwhile people like Lanza will manufacture bombs if they can’t get their guns on the black market.

    The question the media will NEVER ask: how many of these incidents were preceded by attempts to “cure” the illness with a long string of various antidepressants, antipsychotics and other “psych” meds – obvlious to the cumulative interactions of those meds or, in this case, the untested effects of those meds on the not-yet-fully-matured brain physiology of individuals under the age of 23?

    And of THOSE, how many involved a string of prescriptions written by NURSES (yes… NURSES) licensed to prescribe by insane State laws… LIKE CONNECTICUT’S???

    It’s not the NRA who’s at fault here. It’s the AMA.
