In Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, Wednesday night, a 13 year old girl survived a stabbing attack that took the lives of five of her family members, including her parents. It happened inside their home and she told police her two older brothers were responsible for the horrible deaths.
The report released Friday afternoon, alleges 18-year-old Robert Davis Bever and his 16-year-old brother killed five family members at their home late Wednesday in the 700 block of Magnolia Court. Although authorities cited the younger brother’s age as their reason not to identify him, a Tulsa Jail official identified him as Michael Bever.
Found dead inside the home were parents David Bever, 52, and April Bever, 44, and three of their children. The state Medical Examiner’s Office identified them Friday as Daniel Bever, 12, Christopher Bever 7, and Victoria Bever, 5.
The 13-year-old girl was upgraded to serious but stable condition after surgery Thursday. Cooper said an uninjured 2-year-old girl was found on the home’s second floor.
The next question is why haven’t we heard anything about this? The left is too wrapped up in taking guns from citizens after the tragic shooting in Lafayette. This one does not suit their agenda. The Dems control 90% of the news. They ALWAYS omit stories like this, or stories where a life was saved because of a gun. They omit it so much that most of the left are oblivious that these events even happen.
The motive is still unknown, and police are still looking into the reasons why the 18 year-old viciously stabbed his family to death. That’s right. That’s why you haven’t heard about it. No one seems to care that a guy stabbed five of his family members to death. There’s no call to regulate knives, nor is there public outcry against those that make knives as a hobby. Now that’s strange isn’t it? It’s odd that there are mass homicides that don’t involve guns, and according to the media knives are not a problem, yet guns are.
I cannot imagine the horror that child went through watching her brothers commit such horrible crimes. She was very brave and smart little girl to think about calling 911, it saved her two year old sister and her life. Tragic things like this no person wants to see, but instead of pinpointing stories to fit the Liberal agenda, let us bring to light all that happens. The root of these crimes goes further than weapons. Banning things that will protect you makes no sense, you can’t put blame on them, put the blame on the people.
In closing I would like to thank the Broken Arrow PD. Encountering a crime scene like that is something that no officer wants to experience. Sometimes police work like this goes unnoticed and under appreciated. Condolences and prayers to the survivors and their families…
Almost every mass shooting in the past 20 years has one thing in common and guess what, it’s not only guns. It has been shown they all have or were taking powerful psychotropic drugs. There have been many studies in the past decade on SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors) medications on the deadly side effects, including suicide and other violent behavior.
Depressed people are more likely to be prescribed the medication, and it’s definitely over prescribed in many cases. People have always had a natural ability to get over depression in time, HOWEVER, we have to consider the fact that 25 years ago mass shootings did not happen as often or in the percentage as they do now. Prozac came onto the market around 25 years ago and drugs in that category are now used by 20% of Americans. It seems like emotions are getting worse and not better, it also seems like we’re more and more unable to cope on our own without drugs.
When our children are acting out and have emotional problems, many parents choose to medicate instead of taking the time to find the root cause of the problem. It’s only a temporary bandaid to mask the issue. So how does making them dependent on these drugs help their mental health? It will just mess with the chemical balance in their brains further affecting mood, sleep cycle, and giving them a chemical dependency to these pills.
This website is a collection of over 5000+ news stories with the full media article available, mainly criminal in nature, that have appeared in the media (newspapers, TV, scientific journals) or that were part of FDA testimony in either 1991, 2004 or 2006, in which antidepressants are mentioned or in some cases family, friends, law enforcement or coroners have verified the presence of an antidepressant in a perpetrator.
Antidepressants have been recognized as potential inducers of mania and psychosis since their introduction in the 1950s. Klein and Fink1 described psychosis as an adverse effect of the older tricyclic antidepressant imipramine. Since the introduction of Prozac in December, 1987, there has been a massive increase in the number of people taking antidepressants. Preda and Bowers2 reported in the year 2001 that over 200,000 people a year enter a general hospital with a diagnosed antidepressant-associated mania and/or psychosis. They were shocked by such high figures stating that since it is rare for physicians to recognize the antidepressant as the trigger for the mania that the actual figures of antidepressant-induced mania would be far higher. The subsequent harm from this prescribing can be seen in these 4800+ stories of those who never made it into a hospital before the mania resulted in tragedy for them and those around them.
This web site focuses mainly on the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), of which Prozac was the first and was also marketed as Sarafem (Prozac in a pink pill) for PMS. Other SSRIs are Zoloft, Paxil (Seroxat), Celexa, Lexapro, and Luvox. Other antidepressants included in this list are Anafranil and Trazadone (Desyrel) and the SNRIs Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Cymbalta, Pristiq, Savella, Stratera given for ADHD as well as the dopamine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant Wellbutrin (also marketed as Zyban).
Because we feel that for many years these cases went unnoticed until Prozac became so widespread and the other SSRIs and SNRIs followed we are particularly interested in gathering the older cases triggered by older antidepressants such as the Tricyclic antidepressants and MAO Inhibitor antidepressants. If you are aware of any cases you can report to our Survivor Stories please do so and if you have any news articles we can include of those older cases please submit them to us to post in this database of cases. Examples of some of the more high profile older cases would be the shooting of John Lennon and President Ronald Reagan by shooters on antidepressants as well as Charles Whitman who shot and killed wife and mother before shooting 14 more people from a tower at the University of Texas in Austin in 1966 plus the sudden death of Elvis Presley on Elavil.

These are powerful drugs that radically affect the psychology of the end user. While saying that “every” school shooter is likely wrong, you can find that “many” people who take these mind-altering substances can experience dramatic side affects. And just because it didn’t affect you negatively, doesn’t mean it can’t affect others. Two people go into a bar and get drunk – one gets melancholy and chills out, the other turns into an obnoxious jerk and starts a fight. The same substance can affect two people very differently.
The said actions of many are to often having the blame passed, I say it’s time for our world to show some self responsibility for one’s own actions. When I was a child the behavior of most children I see on drugs today was simply passed as “being a kid”. When a small child is put on these drugs it not only alters their moods but takes away their childhood, we are seeing a generation of zombies fueled by big pharmaceutical companies.
"SSRI Stories" purporting to list more than 4,800 cases of criminal behavior by people who were taking antidepressants, mostly SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). The focus is on blaming the antidepressants for violent, hypersexual, bizarre or suicidal behavior.
The FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose whether starting on, increasing or decreasing or discontinuing the drug, skipping doses by forgetting, or when switching from one antidepressant to another where you are both abruptly decreasing one antidepressant AND abruptly increasing the new antidepressant can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis – generally a manic psychosis which is often diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder or occasionally as Schizophrenia when it is caused by the abrupt change in dose. Another problem can be if another antidepressant is added to one you are already taking thus producing a synergistic affect.
Withdrawal, especially abrupt withdrawal, from any of these medications can cause severe neuropsychiatric as well as physical symptoms, both of which can be life threatening. It is therefore, very important to withdraw extremely slowly from these drugs, often over a period of a year or more depending upon how long you have been on any antidepressant or mix of antidepressant, under the supervision of a qualified and experienced specialist, if available. We also recommend that you obtain a copy of the safe withdrawal CD “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant! (http://store.drugawareness.org/
) by our Executive Director, Ann Blake Tracy, which has the safest methods we have found for withdrawal over the past two decades along with helps on rebuilding to rid yourself of any unpleasant after effects.
FDA Public Health Advisory
On March 22, 2004 the FDA published a Public Health Advisory that reiterates several of these side effects and states (in part) “Anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, impulsivity, akathisia (severe restlessness), hypomania, and mania have been reported in adult and pediatric patients being treated with antidepressants for major depressive disorder as well as for other indications, both psychiatric and non-psychiatric.” (Click Links button at bottom of this page for a direct link to this FDA Warning.)
On September 14, 2004 the FDA added a Black Box Warning in regard to antidepressants & suicidality in those under age 18.
On September 14, 2004 the FDA mandated that pharmacies provide to all parents or guardians for those younger than 18 an Antidepressant Patient Medication Guide. This guide reads (in part) “Call healthcare provider right away if you or your family member has any of the following symptoms: Acting aggressive, being angry, or violent & acting on dangerous impulses.” This Antidepressant Patient Medication Guide also states “Never stop an antidepressant medicine without first talking to a healthcare provider. Stopping an antidepressant medicine suddenly can cause other symptoms.” (Click Links button at bottom of this page for a direct link to this FDA Antidepressant Guide.)
On December 13, 2006, the Black Box Warning for suicidality was updated to include those under age 25. The Black Box Warning is included in the insert to the drugs and in the Physicians’ Desk reference.
48 School Shootings/Incidents Involving SSRIs
Most of the stories on this site describe events that occurred after the year 2000. The increase in online news material and the efficiency of search engines has greatly increased the ability to track stories. Even these 5000+ documented stories only represent the tip of an iceberg since most stories do not make it into the media. There are 68 cases of bizarre behavior, 48 school shootings/incidents, 52 road rage tragedies, 12 air rage incidents, 44 postpartum depression cases, over 600 murders (homicides), over 180 murder-suicides and other acts of violence including workplace violence on this site.
A Public Health Problem of Epidemic Proportions
There is a grave concern among advocates that adverse reactions are greatly underestimated by the public, the medical profession, and the regulatory authorities. Each of these stories in our list can be interpreted as an adverse reaction and in most cases we have highlighted the portion of the article that refers to evidence of bizarre behavioral change consistent with drug reaction. In some stories causation is acknowledged and the juxtaposition of these stories with those where it goes unrecognized as well as the repetition of themes and circumstances is chilling. If indeed medications played a significant role in all these tragedies, then this is a public health problem of epidemic proportions on a global scale.
