Stanford Study: Most Mass Shooters Have Undiagnosed Psychiatric Illnesses

Over half of the perpetrators were found to have schizophrenia, with psychotic symptoms including the belief they were receiving messages from demons and seeing hallucinations ordering them to “kill, burn or destroy.”

Researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine have published a study that reveals most of the perpetrators of mass shootings in America are people with undiagnosed psychiatric disorders.

The study focused on 115 assailants of shootings committed between 1982 and 2019, and then narrowed that number down to ones who survived.

“We found that most mass shooters in our study experienced undiagnosed and unmedicated psychiatric illness,” the researchers noted.

Describing the findings as “striking,” the study notes that symptoms of clinical psychiatric disorders were identified in almost all the shooters, 32 out of 35.

Over half of the perpetrators, 18, were found to have schizophrenia, with psychotic symptoms including the belief they were receiving messages from demons and seeing hallucinations ordering them to “kill, burn or destroy.”

A further 10 of the shooters were diagnosed as bipolar, delusional and suffering from personality disorders.

The study also noted that “None were medicated or received other treatment prior to the crime.”

To make the diagnoses, the study focused on the records of forensic psychiatrists and court proceedings, in addition to writings and social media posts made by the shooters.

Researchers also found that in 20 mass shooting cases where the perpetrators died, at least eight had schizophrenia, seven had other diagnoses, and five had unknown mental illnesses.

While concluding that diagnosis and treatment of mental illness could have “decreased violence,” the study notes that “Psychiatric research… on the nature and the incidence of mental illness among mass shooters, however, remains largely understudied.”

“Most of the cases of domestic mass murders possibly might have been prevented had the assailant… been more consistently assisted to receive a correct diagnosis… followed by psychiatric medication treatment… to save lives,” the study suggests.

Four vaccines later and with even the likes of Joe Biden admitting that the pandemic is over, there are still hordes of people who want to continue to wear face masks and to force others to do the same.

The terms #BringBackMasks and #BringMasksBack are currently trending on Twitter, along with ‘World War III’.

Why? Because these people are still out there:

Well, that was the initial reason the phrases were trending. They continued to trend when everyone else called out the psychotic cult:

    Fake Meat Sales Plummet On High Prices, Woke Messaging

    Published

    on

    A few years ago, life was good for the fake meat industry. Beyond Meat had been given vast amounts of real estate in grocery stores, and had scored a deal with Burger King to sell “Impossible” Whoppers. McDonald’s rolled out a McPlant burger (which was quietly shelved last month). Snarky woke advertisements permeated the airwaves and interwebs as plant-based ‘meats’ were on the rise. In fact, Beyond Meat waas valued at over $10bn in 2019, more than Macy’s or Xerox –with the most bullish investors claiming that plant-based meat would make up 15% of all meat sales by 2030. 

    Now, as Bloomberg reports, the fake meat industry is getting ground into hamburger – and that doesn’t include cannibalistic nose-biting execs, according to Deloitte Consulting, LLC.

    Sales of refrigerated meat alternatives at retailers are down 10.5% by volume for the 52-weeks ending September 4, 2022, according to data from Information Resources Inc., or IRI. While higher prices are the top reason for the slide, it’s not the only one, according to Jonna Parker, a fresh food specialist at the market research company. -Bloomberg

    “Proteins that were cheaper on a price-per-pound basis did fare better,” said Parker, who noted that semi-vegetarian shoppers who used to opt for the alternative product will now choose the less-expensive real thing. In short, people are less willing to pay a premium for fake meat, especially considering that ‘taste and health concerns’ are playing a role.

    According to Deloitte, the fake meat industry has a perception problem. Based on a July survey of 2,000 consumers, there’s been a decline in the belief that plant-based meat is actually healthier and environmentally sustainable vs. meat from animals.

    Despite the increasing alarm over climate change, the number of Americans who are vegetarian or vegan has remained relatively stable over the last 20 years. About 5% of Americans in 2018 said they are vegetarian, while 3% are vegan, according to a Gallup poll.

    Even when participants in a study conducted at Purdue University in Indiana were given information about the carbon footprint of meat production, participants were more likely to go with regular meat over a plant-based alternative.

    Bhagyashree Katare, an author of the study, said that participants may have been put off by the taste of plant-based meat and the fact that it is not necessarily a healthier alternative to regular meat. Many plant-based meat alternatives are comparable to their real meat counterparts in nutritional content. That it costs about the same as meat also diminishes its attractiveness to consumers. -The Guardian

    If I’m spending money in a restaurant, and I’m a meat eater, why would I spend money on plant-based meat? I would rather eat an actual burger,” said Katare. “It’s a technology, and it takes a long time for people to trust the technology and adopt it. I think that’s where plant-based meat is. Maybe the technology will improve, and it will get better health-wise.”

    What’s more, the actual market may be much smaller than previously thought – which coincides with a ‘growing cultural resistance to its “woke” status’ – even among people who are trying in earnest to reduce their consumption of red meat.

    For example, when Cracker Barrel announced they were adding Impossible Foods’ sausage to its menu over the summer, it faced fierce opposition via social media.

    As The Guardian notes, the McDonald’s McPlant burger was shelved last month, as the push to get US meat eaters to switch to plant-based alternatives has proven a challenge.

    Multiple chains that partnered with the company, including McDonald’s, have quietly ended trial launches. In August, the company laid off 4% of its workforce after a slowdown in sales growth. Last week, its chief operating officer was reportedly arrested for biting another man on the nose during a road rage confrontation.

    It’s a dramatic reversal of fortune. Just two years ago, Beyond Meat, its competitor Impossible Foods and the plant-based meat industry at large seemed poised to start a food revolution. -Guardian

    “The bulls in the industry, I think, had a very wild, very optimistic estimate of how big the market could get,” said Mizuho Securities analyst John Baumgartner. “There was a lot of exuberance in this category. It was new, it was different, it was on trend.”

    “But the consumer environment is tough, and this stuff is not cheap,” he added.

    Year-to-date, Beyond Meat stock is down 77%, and is valued at less than $900 million.

    Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, Who Claimed Vax Was “100% Effective,” Catches Covid For Second Time in 2 Months

    Published

    Quadruple-vaccinated Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, who claimed back in April 2021 that his company’s mRNA covid vaccine “was 100% effective in preventing covid,” announced Saturday that he has come down with covid for the second time in two months. 

    “I have tested positive for COVID,” Bourla said on Twitter. “I’m feeling well & symptom free. I’ve not had the new bivalent booster yet, as I was following CDC guidelines to wait 3 months since my previous COVID case which was back in mid-August. While we’ve made great progress, the virus is still with us.”

    Bourla revealed his previous covid diagnosis less than six weeks ago on August 15th.

    In November, Bourla said those who spread “misinformation” about his experimental mRNA covid injections are “criminals.”

    “Those people are criminals,” Bourla told the Atlantic Council. “They’re not bad people. They’re criminals because they have literally cost millions of lives … The only thing that stands between the new way of life and the current way of life is, frankly, hesitancy to vaccinations.”

    Claiming covid vaccines would not stop the spread of covid was previously considered “misinformation” but is now accepted fact. The shots not only do not stop the spread of covid but people who took the shots keep catching covid over and over again.

    Bourla would have had us thrown in prison for claiming his experimental mRNA injection didn’t work. 

    Where’s the apology for this fraud? Where’s the mea culpa? 

    When are “criminals” like Bourla who spread “misinformation” about their shots’ effectiveness to boost their stock and sell their crap “vaccines” going to be forced to pay out damages to the vax injured and those who lost their jobs for refusing these jabs? 

    A great crime took place with these forced injections and the perpetrators need to be held accountable.
