The events that took place in Charleston, SC are beyond comprehension.
Pure evil on display.
But it appears that the shooter, Dylann Storm Roof, was taking the controversial drug suboxone which has been found to have aggression as a side effect.
It should be noted that this in NO WAY is an excuse but given this drug’s history, it’s fair to ask if it should be continued to be promoted.
Charleston shooter Dylann Storm Roof was reportedly taking a drug that has been linked with sudden outbursts of violence, fitting the pattern of innumerable other mass shooters who were on or had recently come off pharmaceutical drugs linked to aggression.
According to a CBS News report, earlier this year when cops searched Roof after he was acting suspiciously inside a Bath and Body Works store, they found “orange strips” that Roof told officers was suboxone, a narcotic that is used to treat opiate addiction.
Suboxone is a habit-forming drug that has been connected with sudden outbursts of aggression.
