Orlando Shooter Spent Last Days Researching Anti-Psychotic Medications

Tyler Durden's picture

Following reports that the killer of Jo Cox had been mentally ill, it has now emerged that last week's other notable shooter, Omar Mateen is now also being presented as mentally troubled, after he allegedly talked about staying up all night to do online research into anti-psychosis medication, an acquaintance said in a interview with Reuters.

Whether this reported is meant to deflect public attention from his being "rationally" influenced by Islamist elements is unclear. "It looks increasingly like this may have been the act of a seriously troubled individual whose personal problems dwarfed any last-minute inspiration from radical groups," said a senior U.S. official familiar with the investigation, speaking on condition of anonymity. Authorities - in keeping up with the Administration's narrative - believe Mateen, a U.S. citizen of Afghan descent, was self-radicalized and acted alone in the rampage, contrary to a push by Donald Trump to frame Mateen as one who was radicalized by Islamist elements. 

The acquaintance, a resident at the PGA Village in Port St. Lucie, Florida, where Mateen worked as a gate security guard, said he noticed signs of deteriorating behavior a few weeks before the massacre. He had passed the gate for three years, meeting Mateen several times a week and exchanging friendly small talk. About three weeks before the attack, he noticed Mateen seemed agitated and asked him if he was all right.

Mateen said he was worn out from staying up all night to research psychiatric medication, although he did not say he was taking specific drugs. “He’d been real worried about whether or not he’d slipped into psychosis," the acquaintance said. “He wasn’t as friendly. He was obsessed with researching medication online.”

The acquaintance said he thought it was strange that Mateen would confide to him his concerns about his mental health, because they were not very close and he did not know anything about Mateen's personal life, including whether he was married or had children.

"The last month, he looked worried, he looked upset, he looked confused," the acquaintance said. "He didn’t seem himself." In the early morning, about 18 hours before the June 12 attack, the acquaintance said he drove up to the gate but Mateen was not there to open it as usual. In a couple of minutes, he appeared, silent and with a completely transformed look - a shaved head and face, without his usual short whiskers and glasses.

When asked if he was OK, the usually polite Mateen responded: “What’s it to you, anyway?"

These claims are not the first to paint a picture of Mateen as a mentally unstable individual. His school records showed a history of being disciplined and his attempt to become a police officer ended when he was expelled from the police academy.

It will be interesting if the narrative of Mateetn as being insane picks up, even as the comparable surrounding Cox's killer is largely ignored and her killing is blamed on a pro-Brexit ideologue.

So now the White House throws Big Pharma under the bus alongside the LGBT community in favor of Islam.

Ron Paul came to the conclusion that Mateen was crazy ten days ago.

Wow talk about doing anything! to make him not just another person who practices ORTHODOX ISLAM. Its pretty clear from the videos of Muslim's preaching to groups on alternative news media that the norm teaching for Muslims is to kill homosexuals. https://youtu.be/Z-PcYdEjkqk
"According to the Muslim Group of USA and Canada, Imam Hamza Sodagar, “Is deemed a role model by young Muslims all around the world,” having studied Islamic issues for 14 years and spoken at innumerable events globally."

maybe he was in a controlled study group for a new anti-muslim pill for gay tendency males, he overdosed (took too many pills to really get rid of his gayness) and did what he did - - 

maybe ?

They are instructed to deceive non-Muslims in order to further the Jihad.

Bottom line immigration must be limited to allow for the current population to assimilate and not form closed ghettos like in the EU.

Are you an agent of provocateur, Froze25? It is insane people like you keep inflaming hatred and potentially further mass violence.

Maybe you should be researching anti-psychotic medications. Yer a freakin' Looney Tune.

The anti-psychotic drugs pushed by big pharma serve only to cover their psychosis, furthering their disconnect from reality.

Maybe, alternatively, rather then covering their paranoia with false euphoria, they should give them marijuana, so they can learn to deal with their paranoia, and just chill on the couch...

Distracting the American public from the Truth is the #1 goal of MSM. ANYTHING but placing the blame where it belongs. Blame guns, blame mental illness, blame a "distrubed man", blame Americans themselves as Obama did, Blame Trump and even blame global warming....


ANYTHING but the Truth!

ack's picture

The TRUTH is that in the last 20 years the common thread to EVERY "lone-shooter-mass-murders" is DRUGS. Either prescription anti-psychotic or other legal-illegal drug which alters decisioning and moral sanity. THIS is what they don't want you to know. The drugging of America is creating MORE pyschopaths and sociopaths in normal populations. They want you to focus on race, religion or guns. Those are simply tools. NOT REAL CAUSE. Which is the moral insanity being forced on worldwide populations via DRUGS. Either legal or illegal. Wake the fuck up.

But he was a "Lone Wolf" Soweto said ..... no ties to the thousands of radical islamic ISIS peeples who vow to kill and destroy Amerika.


I have to admit this guy really botched it. he oculd have simply checked off the box "Tearrist" on his application and gotten into any ivy league uni plus full scholarship, then priority hiring afterwards.


Too bad.

100% correct.

Just do a web search of 'perscription drugs and mass murder".  You will be amaazed, but not one peep about it in the media, as I watch one after another TV commercials for perscription drugs with disclaimers that are longer than listed benefits.  WTF.  It was not even legal to advertise perscription drugs a few years ago.....way back before corporations became people.

Actually, it increases their psychosis and make them very susceptible to suggestion and manipulation ...and if they try to get off the drugs they go into withdrawal...which plunges them into depression and paranoia.  I think you will find that most of the incidences that have occurred in the last decade of so involve psychotropic drugs as a common denominator.  The strange thing is that a large percentage of the population are prescribed these drugs on a routine basis.

I was just kidding. I entirely agree with the premise that every Muslim in the world is involved in a grand conspiracy. And here's a tip, pal. I heard they're after you personally.

You make a strong case for the sanity of Muslim haters everywhere. Keep up the good work!

"Mateen also talked about staying up all night to do online research into anti-psychosis medication, the acquaintance said in a interview. The acquaintance requested anonymity, saying authorities had asked him to keep quiet." - Reuter

Look at who's also on your side trying to sell the fear by asking the witness to keep quiet.

BINGO. Don't let TRUTH come out. That this guy was on psychotic DRUGS which literally changed his behavior patterns and exacerbated his pyschopathology. Wonder what else they did to encourage his abberant behavior? One doesn't need to agree with Islam or any religion to SEE that there is an effort to foment hatred and blame against a false meme. Let's hope the mutherfuckers own children become cannon fodder on the front lines of the war their rodent-faced parents and sayanim ZIO-scum traitors have wrought.

Here's an idea: Why don't we refocus our refugee admittances to the Christians who have had to flee the ME? They would be much more likely to successfully assimilate and enrich our society (in the nonsarcastic understanding of the term "enrich").

Yes, let's welcome the Palestinian Christians. The Israelis have been beating them down long enough.

The PLO has expelled or exterminated any Christians from Palestine and they are working on doing the same to Jews in Israel.

If every simple cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is a part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA.


If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value. There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life.


Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, Jewish Week, April 26, 1996

While Billy the bitchy fag Poet trolls gay hook up apps trying to pick up gay Muslim men, he ignores the hate being preached by imams in Islamic mosques towards gays.


An imam speaking in Orlando in April said that killing gays according to Islamic law should be done "out of compassion":

But I was told that Muslims lie in order to deceive you so what they say can't be believed. Right?

You believed the lies that your gay Muslim lover Omar told you just as long as your feminized libtard ass got schlonged.

Your imagination is so fertile. You've got quite a gift and you obviously enjoy it a great deal.

Read the christian bible.... especially the parts that talk of killing any man who lay with another man as they do with a woman. talk about sucked in by mainstream media. False flags are aplenty. Gun control and war in Syria is the agenda.

Perfect patsy. The mentally ill got a whole lot crazier with the advent of these drugs.  The story may be spun in favor of big pharma.  They can say he was never on these drugs when he was or went off them and should have been on them.  People can go into very dark moods when they go off them without being weaned off. 

froze25's picture

Yes, they can. Just so everyone knows volunteer work, gardening or just helping people in general works better than drugs to combat depression. A change in diet can also do wonders.

Demonization of "mental illness" is just another part of the agenda, along with demonizing Islam & guns and promoting "tolerance" of LGBT values. We should be tolerant and understanding of all humans, but the LGBT push (along with assimilation of immigrants) is about making us feel less human, less unique. It is no longer important to find out the reason God made you the way you are because you can change your identity at any time.

TPTB realize that the "mentally ill" are mostly immune from the programming broadcast over our airwaves and computer screens. The "mentally ill" are much more likely to know what TPTB are really up to.

This story is made up, along with the rest of it. This was another San Bernardino, another Bataclan. They have a team of guys come in with long guns and start popping off blanks. A few agents are mixed in with the crowd with exploding eyeballs and blood packets to complete the effect. They wait until everybody clears out of the club, finish the drill and then feed a fantastic story to the press for them to regurgitate.

Rinse, repeat.

Yes. This behavior of researching mediciation all night is most common among people that have already developed the side effects. People don't discuss this stuff in depth with their doctors prior to taking the drugs, only after they are going wack-a-doo and barely holding on to their mental grip. 

This guy's actions and descriptions carry all the hallmarks of psychotropics gone wrong. How many shooters now have been on these drugs? Last time I looked it was approx 90%, though I haven't seen the most recent statistics.

Not that I'm in favor of Islam or looking to shift blame away from it. That's a whole other can of bullcrap. But the influence of psychotropics is clearly playing as big of part in these shootings as the weapons themselves.

I'd argue that virtually all religious people are psychotic, so I'm not seeing the new information here. He's a normal Muslim. Mad as a brush.

One could just as easily argue that anyone believing in a naturalistic beginning to the univers is psychot. How delusional does one have to be to say "There was nothing, occuppying zero space, and then a cosmic egg exploded (but where's the chicken?) ..." and then go on to describe, in detail, the first 5 milliseconds of this 'something out of nothing' universe?

Billy the Poet's picture

Maybe the universe has always been here expanding and contracting. I don't know and I really don't care. I can't fathom why so many people are obsessed with the ramifications of facts they'll never ascertain.
