I think that is the problem with the parents today. They don't have time for their kids. Kids NEED two parents to nurture and correct them - not drugs to keep them quiet. When I was growing up if kid got out of hand, he got a good wack on his arse. Sometimes it took a couple of wacks to get him to see the light. No drugs, no doctors, no special treatment, no ADD. Today a parent can't even look cross-eyed at their kid - social services will jump right in. So sad that this is what our country has turned into. Even sadder is that most have given the government the responsibility of raising their children and they don't see what little monsters they are turning into because they don't understand the meaning of the words 'no, you can't'.
Precisely, "What part of no do you not understand?"
Yes guys, I call it the timeout generation ........;(
If that kid was really on iloperidone (Fanapt), as reported, somebody should serve time, Just My Honest Opinion. In 1989 I interned as a drug/alcohol counselor at a Utah hospital. I didn't last long because I couldn't get any alcoholics to counsel, just kids on who-knows-what and Mormon housewives addicted to pain pills. The kids all had a psychologist or psychiatrist who sent them home with prescriptions for drugs. My memory is not clear, but I seem to remember a suicide every three months by a teenager who had been through drug treatment. Everybody should get to see (as I did) a 100 pound little girl go postal and attack two counselors, leaving fingernail gouges all over their arms.I had seen buildings blown up by propellants we were making and body parts scattered all over. It did not prepare me for teen-age suicides or mass shootings in schools and theaters. I have long thought that the drug war is a ruse to divert attention away from the crimes of big Pharma.
Filthy lucre is definitely involved.
