    Those who knew the 21-year-old suspect, Robert Crimo III, say he habitually smoked cannabis, a habit he appeared to share with young mass shooters, including at Uvalde, Dayton, Parkland and Aurora...At some point, his father moved out of the family home into a house two miles away in Highwood, while Crimo stayed with his mother and the Highland Park house fell into disrepair...But when Crimo turned 18, his personality changed, Pacileo told NBC News,..."Instead of therapy, he turned to drugs..."...Another former friend, Bennett Brizes, described the Crimo he knew from age 14 to 17 as "an isolated stoner who completely...

    You don’t need to be a psychiatrist to know that the Highland Park shooter is sick in the head. His evil act is unfathomable, but he does fit a familiar pattern of mass killers: alienated young male stoners who appear to be in the grip of a distinctively American madness. Those who knew the 21-year-old suspect, Robert Crimo III, say he habitually smoked cannabis, a habit he appeared to share with young mass shooters, including at Uvalde, Dayton, Parkland and Aurora. Obviously weed didn’t make them commit their evil acts, but it may have scrambled their brains enough for empathy...

    Authorities revealed Tuesday afternoon that the suspect who allegedly shot dozens of people at a parade on Monday had a history of run-ins with law enforcement officials. “I’m going to relay some information from two prior instances that occurred here in Highland Park,” Christopher Covelli, Lake County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer, said at a press conference. “The first was in April of 2019. An individual contacted Highland Park Police Department a week after learning of [the suspect] attempting suicide. This was a delayed report, so Highland Park still responded to the residence a week later, spoke with [the suspect],...

    For Ritchie Herron, a bright and articulate civil servant from Newcastle, life over the past four years has become almost unbearable. It takes him ten minutes to empty his bladder, a process as painful as it is slow. Any sex drive is long gone. In fact, he says, his crotch is numb, ‘shell-shocked’ from the damage done to him under the apparent care of the NHS. ‘Numb’ rather sums up Ritchie’s whole demeanour as he struggles to process what has happened to him. Today he reveals – in an exclusive interview – that he is the man preparing legal action...
  • Biden insists recession is NOT inevitable, admits Americans are 'really, really down' and 'need mental health' and calls Republican claims he caused inflation 'bizarre' in first press interview since February 10

    President Joe Biden said Americans are 'really, really down' amid record inflation and the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic – but said a recession is 'not inevitable.' He made the comments in a 30-minute sit down interview – his first formal sit-down since February, when he spoke to NBC and called interviewer Lester Holt a 'wise guy' over his inflation comments. This time, he said a recession is not inevitable and bristled at claims by Republican lawmakers that last year's COVID-19 aid plan was fully to blame for inflation reaching a 40-year high, calling that argument 'bizarre.' He spoke to...
  • Men face 'vicious circle' between satisfaction with their partner and mental health, new study suggests

    Medical Xpress / Loughborough University / BMC Psychology ^ | May 8, 2022 | Meg Cox / Paul Downward et al
    A new study investigating if mental health helps shape satisfaction with partners has revealed there are differences between females and males—with men having the potential to experience a vicious circle. Led by Loughborough University's Professor Paul Downward, professor of economics in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, the analysis used data on 42,464 couples gathered through the British Household Panel Survey (1991–2008) to test aspects of the marital adjustment model, which assesses dyadic partner satisfaction. The findings suggest for females, relationship satisfaction is more likely to influence mental health. For males, however, there is a potential "vicious circle...

    A recent study published by Oregon State University discovered that COVID-19 infected individuals have a higher chance of developing psychiatric disorders within about four months of contracting the virus. For the study, published in World Psychiatry on May 7, researchers used data from the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C). They matched 46,610 patients infected with COVID-19, which can trigger a respiratory tract infection (RTI), with control patients diagnosed with a different RTI. This allowed researchers to specifically look into how COVID-19 affected the mental health of infected individuals. No patients with any history of mental illness prior to 21 days...

    The father of the 18-year-old who shot and killed 19 students and two teachers at an Uvalde elementary school after shooting his grandmother in the face has apologized for his sons actions — but demanded “I don’t want them calling him a monster.” Salvador Ramos Sr. told the Daily Beast on Thursday, “I just want the people to know I’m sorry man, [for] what my son did.” The 42-year-old admitted that he had not seen his son in some time due to his fears about being exposed to COVID-19. He said that his son became frustrated with his COVID concerns...

    Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom criticized Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) on Wednesday after the tragic mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. At a news conference on Wednesday, Abbott discussed the shooting and said that the shooter “has to have evil in his heart.” He also spoke about the mental health problems of many people in Texas while saying that those in power should try to improve safety at schools and mental health resources. He specifically pointed to California when discussing gun legislation. “There are ‘real’ gun laws in Chicago. There are ‘real’ gun laws in New...

    In yet another tragic mass shooting, Salvador Ramos, 18, slaughtered 19 innocent children and two much-loved teachers at Robb Elementary school, in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday before being killed in a shoot out with a Border Patrol officer and local law enforcement. It is the second deadliest shooting in US history after the infamous Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 - which saw 26 people killed - and has once again left people asking how someone could commit such a heinous crime. As the country tries to make sense of the tragedy, stories about Ramos are beginning to emerge from those...

    This Tuesday voters have decisions to make in the Republican Primaries. Will it be Madison Cawthorn or President Xi in North Carolina? Will it be Kathy Barnette or Globalism in Pennsylvania? Will it be Doug Mastriano or the RINO Establishment here in the Keystone State? Will it be MAGA Janice McGeachin or the China First Republican Governor Brad Little in Idaho? If there isn't unity behind one candidate in the crowded GOP Primary fields the China First Republicans win. In Idaho Glenn Beck for example gave a lot of attention to Ed Humphreys alongside McGeachin. A split vote leaves Little...

    The Surgeon General warned of a “mental-health crisis” among young people, adding urgency to long-standing concerns. Campuses are rushing to address these issues, but their efforts may do more harm than good because they’re rooted in the disease model of mental health. The disease model sees painful emotions as evidence of a disorder. It presumes that happiness comes effortlessly to the “normal,” and “treatment” is the way to get it otherwise. The disease model began in the 1950s with the first psychotropic drug. Acceptance grew with each new medication, and now the disease model is rarely questioned. It shapes our...

She warns that if Americans do not stand up for their freedoms, then authorities may take away more of our fundamental rights in the name of public health. “Yes, China is the ultimate nightmare,” Lieberman told the host of NTD’s Capitol Report, Steve Lance, in a recent interview. “I hope Americans realize that if we keep being sheep and following all the rules, like...

    In about half of people, mental illnesses arise before age 18 - add climate change fears and the outlook is grim Suppose you wake up in the night and you notice flames coming from downstairs. You ring for the fire brigade and they say you’re probably imagining it. Anyway, they add, by the time they could get there it would be too late anyway. As you watch your house burn, your feelings might include anger, a sense of betrayal and grief. Is that an extreme metaphor for the feelings of young people towards older generations and governments in regard to...

On top of that, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on both the President's physical and mental health can't be underestimated, and it's been suggested that brain fog as a result of Long Covid could be impairing his cognitive function. Although it's not clear...
