Anti-depression drugs effect in Virgina Tech slaughter?

When speaking to a guest who offered the Washington Post had reported Cho Seung-Hui trained using an online video called Counterstrike, Bill Hemmer noted the Washington Post pulled the reference to the video, suggesting the item was unsupportable.

The two men discussed when and how the reference was pulled, with the guest saying he searched the site and the reference still came up in a summary.

Prescription Medications may have been found, Fox News reporting the possibility is as yet unconfirmed.

There has been very little reporting of Cho's therapy for depresssion which may have included prescriptions for anti-depression medications!

Fox News yesterday appeared to be the only media outlet to interview experts on the connection between violent tendencies and outright violence by individuals who've been on such prescription drugs!

News reports also said that he may have been taking medication for depression, that he was becoming increasingly violent and erratic, and that he left a note in his dorm in which he railed against ''rich kids," ''debauchery" and ''deceitful charlatans" on campus.
