I wanted to take a minute to discuss my own "conspiracy theories" regarding the recent mass shootings. I have a few. These are theories and speculations, or as most people would call them, "crazy thoughts", so that's my disclaimer. These aren't theories that I have a lot of stock in, that I stay up looking at videos trying to find the second gunman or anything like that. Just thoughts and questions.
1) These people are crazy. Crazy people get put on meds. The meds made them do it. There are several "antidepressants" that are known to cause not only suicidal thoughts, but also homicidal impulses as well. My ex wife was on Wellbutrine and started having violent, vivid fantasies about murdering our children. The doctors know that this is a common enough side effect, but they never warned us. Do you really believe they warned Loughner, Lanza, or Alexis? They didn't warn a mentally disturbed mother that she might feel like killing someone on these pills. They said, "take these pills, and you'll be normal." Then they sent her home to be with her kids. This is the theory that holds the most weight with me, as I've seen this first hand. Even still, watch these commercials for any of these pills. "May cause mood swings, irritability, and suicidal thoughts." Homicidal? Not listed. Fucking ever.
2) They weren't crazy. They were right. For this part, I'm only talking about Jared loughner and Aaron Alexis, as they are really the only ones that we have an insight to their motivations leading up to their actions. A lot has been said about how crazy Alexis was for believing the government was beaming extra low frequencies into his head and sending him signals and messages. Loughner described his often lucid dreaming, where he said he felt awake but that someone else was in control of his body. MK Ultra was a real project. They've admitted it. Following each attack, the government tries to strip the rest of us of our natural and constitutional rights. The same government that poisoned its own citizens in the name of the law, or that faked enemy attacks to drag us into war, that same government would willingly end its top secret mind control program because we mundanes didn't approve? I don't buy that. I'm not saying they were MK Ultra. But I definitely can't say they weren't.
3) Just crazy. No meds. No mind control. Sometimes people are crazy, and they do horribly evil things. There's no rhyme or reason. They lost their minds, and that's that. Just pathetic wastes of skin that masturbate furiously to the idea of Piers Morgan discussing their motives and their weapon choice for the next 6 months.
4) Demonic possession. Hey, why not?
So, those are my theories. Pills, MK Ultra, crazy, or demons. Did you notice what's missing from this list? The gun. Guns don't make people kill. They are inanimate machines, unable to act on their own accord.
