Someone is keeping track of details like this. I wonder why more on the right aren’t noticing.
Noisy Room has a discussion of this and the connections between violence, sociopathic progressivism, and drugs. They make note of the following:
It seems the root causes of this twisted behavior include, at least by affinity, the ideological motivations of, or even pathological drives for, political or sociological causes shared by the progressive “left” – mixed with psychotropic drugs – and that, especially among but not limited to adolescent men.”
The article references ‘psychotropic drugs’. Being that my training is in carpentry and not pharmacy I had to look the term up to understand it. Wikipedia describes them this way:
A psychoactive drug, psychopharmaceutical, or psychotropic is a chemical substance that crosses the blood–brain barrier and acts primarily upon the central nervous system where it affects brain function, resulting in alterations in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, and behavior. These substances may be used recreationally, to purposefully alter one’s consciousness, or as entheogens, for ritual, spiritual, and/or shamanic purposes, as a tool for studying or augmenting the mind. Some psychoactive drugs are also recognized for therapeutic use as anesthetics, analgesics, or for the treatment of psychiatric disorders.”
Were the shooters using these drugs?
Update: Actually the number seems to be out of date.
Just this past week we were treated to this left-wing shooter:
Nkosi Thandiwe shot dead 26-year-old Brittany Watts and and injured two other women in the parking deck of the Proscenium building on July 15, 2011.
His trial went to court last week. Thankiwe confessed that he shot the three white women after he learned to hate white people in college.
That makes eight, I think.
