Hartford Courant ^ | May 13,2013 | Dave Altimari

Posted on 05/13/2013 10:04:42 AM PDT by Biggirl

Toxicology tests show that Adam Lanza had no alcohol or drugs in his system when he shot and killed 20 first graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on Dec. 14.

The toxicology tests were conducted as part of the autopsy by state Chief Medical Examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver II. Sources said his final report has been turned over to state prosecutors and investigators.

To be more specific, his blood contained none of the drugs they screened for.

Well, Pfeizer and alchohol marketers everywhere are hearing a collective “whew” , from their legal departments at the moment.

Sure, because once they’re out of your system you never have any lingering side effects.

So Obama and his lackeys decided to spare the pharmaceutical companies from blame in this "big scary shooting with lots of clips and dead bodies everywhere OMG!!!!," eh?

I wonder what kind of payoff was offered behind closed doors?

Interesting stuff.

WTF ? Are they going to drag Lanza's corpse into court ?

Methinks a lawsuit against the NRA and/or Bushmaster is afoot ...

A. I don't believe anything I read, anymore.
B. An administration that would perpetrate Fast and Furious to get our guns would have no problem combing through the CDC database medical files on mentally ill patients who have admitted to having access to guns on their required questionnaires, then tampering with the meds of several said patients hoping one might have a ‘Sandy Hook’ event and help along their agenda. Impossible to get caught as the government controls the medical records, before and after. The death of a few innocents is acceptable to these monsters.

Q: Was the shooter prescribed any medications which could affect mood or behavior?

Q: If so, what were they?

Q: Had the shooter's medications been changed, increased, decreased or discontinued recently?

I think that it's a given that Adam Lanza must have been on some maintenance medications, given that his Mom was trying to have him committed.

To be even more specific, the vial of blood the Feds handed to the lab, labeled with Adam Lanza’s name contained none of the drugs they screened for.

Was he supposed to be taking SSRIs or other medication and just up and quit-—leading to one of those homocidal moments? Or did the tox screen not include prescription drugs?

I guess we’ll just have to blame the evil on him, then.

Because he is absolutely the one responsible for what he did.

What prescriptions did he have and he stopped taking? School prescribed ADHD medicine when he attended public skeewls perhaps? The whitewash continues. Funny how we know all about the Boston bros in a few days, yet it takes months for Lanza info to drip out. The looney left is responsible for this massacre.

Was thinking the very same thing. The problem is that he didn't have any drugs in his system! If he'd been taking his anti-psychotics, anti-depressants, and ADHD medication, maybe he'd been a drooling mass of humanity instead of a stone cold killer.

I thought that oddly long and drawn out, too.

Maybe they turned the analysis over to the FBI crime lab and they were just too busy faking up all the leftover evidence from Waco, Fast and Furious, etc.

It doesn’t sound to me like the tests took six month. The article says they were included in the final autopsy report, which was just completed. So, they weren’t released until now, but they were probably performed and completed long ago.

You may not be off the mark. When we tried to get out autistic son off Prozac twice, both time he became suicidal and increasingly violent. We gave up in the end and he is still on it but doing better overall with the help of still other drugs.

You conspiracy people are friggin nuts.

When the facts don't fit your preconceived notions then it must be a oooooh! A conspiracy.

It never occurs to your fertile black op imagination that in a country rife with malfunctioning education system, violent entertain industry, divorce, lax parenting or no parenting at all, damaged kids with an defect in the brain's wiring and a bad attitude. Just add in access to weaponry to this toxic mix and voila! Mass murder!!

With damned few adults willing to take responsibility in this society, is there any wonder we don't have many, many more shootings like this.
Do we really need to invent conspiracies theories to explain this mayhem?

This is the flawed world we created and the cracks are getting wider....

My thoughts, exactly.

So, by this report, we know know nothing new here. Just keeping the frenzy, above the fold in the paper.

No mention of when the chief examiner’s report is due.

Oh well, in case anyone is interested: There is a gun buy-back in Hartford this Saturday.: http://www.courant.com/community/hartford/hc-hartford-gun-buy-back-0514-20130513,0,2055554.story

**Stop & Shop gift cards will be the currency: $150 for an assault rifle, $75 for a handgun and $25 for a shotgun or rifle.**

IIRC, that state still hasn’t adequately defined what an *assault* rifle is, so if it is black and scary, it might qualify for a food card.

You can’t fix stupid.

Reports wrong, no, ever heard of screenshots?

You know what else is funny?

Funny how Screen Actors Guild actor Gene Rosen went from speaking about a male bus driver in his yard to a female bus driver.

Funny how Gene Rosen had his picture take with two kids in Texas that later did a photo op with Obama.

Funny how the kids were left at Gene Rosen's house all day.

Funny how Gene Rosen had a casualty list the day of the "shooting" when it wasn't even made until a day later.

Funny how Gene Rosen also works for FEMA

Funny how helicopter news shows a line of people going around in a circle in and out of a building to make it look like there were more authorities at the scene.

Funny how an aunt being interviewed didn't know which of her nieces was the youngest.

Funny how an interstate traffic light was at the scene saying "Everyone must check in".

Funny how the dad was laughing until being warned there were going on air in one minute and starting working up tears like Bill Clinton with Ron Brown.

And what is funniest of all is that after Obama has now been proven a deceiver and a schemer with the IRS, Fast and Furious, and Benghazi, that people on this site would actually believe what his agencies are telling us without question, even though nothing adds up.
