Much information has already come out indicating the recent DC Navy Yard shooting follows a repeating pattern for such events including:
- initial reports of multiple shooters
- misidentified perpetrator
- reports of drills of similar scenario near time of actual event
- suspicious “stand down” orders
- a lone shooter who hallucinates and/or suffers from mind control
Other anomalies and discrepancies are noted at James Tracy’s “The Memory Hole” blog: http://memoryholeblog.com/2013/09/18/artifacts-from-the-dc-navy-yard-shooting/
A recent Washington Post article reported how shortly after Aaron Alexis started hearing voices and feeling vibrations sent through his hotel-room walls, :
On Aug. 23, he went to a VA hospital in Providence. Five days later, he went to another one in Washington, seeking a refill of the medication he had been prescribed in Rhode Island, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
In both cases, doctors sent Alexis home with the medication, identified by law enforcement officials as Trazodone, a generic antidepressant that is widely prescribed for insomnia.
What are some of the side-effects of Trazodone listed at Drugs.com ?:
- Burning, crawling, itching, numbness, prickling, “pins and needles”, or tingling feelings
- confusion about identity, place, and time
- trouble with sleeping
- continuing ringing or buzzing or other unexplained noise in the ears
More troubling is the drug’s psychiatric warning:
Psychiatric side effects have been reported and include mania, paranoia, hypomania (during and following therapy), increased libido, delirium, agitation, psychosis, hallucinations and self- destructive behavior.
Though it seems adverse reactions to Trazodone may have been one factor leading to the shooting, it doesn’t rule out the possibility of electronic harassment (which may create similar symptoms) nor explain the para-political aspects of the case. To take us further down the rabbit hole, there’s this interesting piece by Clyde Lewis: http://www.groundzeromedia.org/away-team-the-cosmic-suicide-trope/
The shooter’s purported Facebook page mentioned in the article:
Whether or not the profile was created by Aaron Alexis, it’s extremely odd. If it was created by someone other than Alexis, whether a handler or hoaxer, it reflects a pretty twisted mind not only for the cryptic poem, but because info on the site indicates it was created on April 15 in Boston, the day of the marathon bombing.
