Dismissing Jared Loughner’s bloody murders in Arizona as the work of a madman is easy; people like him clearly seem deranged. Yet, shouldn’t we demand better answers? American culture is experiencing a phenomenon of medicated young adults committing violent public acts. (http://www.cchrint.org/2011/01/12/…) As more information becomes available, the mainstream media is avoiding obvious leads to investigate, namely vaccine-induced brain injury.
In 1990, medical researcher Harris Coulter authored a powerful literary work titled, Vaccination, Social Violence, and Criminality: The Medical Assault on the American Brain. The book describes a rising epidemic of vaccine-induced encephalitis, or swelling of the brain, in United States children and young adults. It has been known since the 1920s those suffering from “post-encephalitic syndrome gravitate toward violence and crime.” [Pg.179]
On page 179 Coulter describes post encephalitic children this way: “The typical outcome was described as “good” boys made “bad” and “bad” boys made “worse”. This encephalitis…may produce an intellectual, tormented, monster out of a gentle girl or boy. A child of previous responsible character may be so transformed as to seem a different person…cruel, destructive, abusive, indecent.”
Loughner’s pattern of bizarre mental health problems litters the tabloids, showing a timeline reaching its crescendo in January 2011.
For example, TIME Magazine reported Kylie Smith, a childhood friend of Loughner’s, saying he was, “the most kindhearted, well-behaved human being…” When she saw him years later she recalled, “He seemed out of it, like he was somewhere else…” (http://www.time.com/time…)
