(January 11, 2013) In the brave new world of the very near future, children will enter their public schools passing police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, metal detectors, X-ray scanners and warrantless physical searches. Parents will relax, knowing their child is now "SAFE." No violent evil doers will be able to get past that wall of security.
But what none of the checkpoints, scanners and cameras will detect is the child who walks right past, armed to the teeth with a hidden weapon actually enforced on him by the school itself. The weapon comes in many names and varieties: Ritalin, Luvox, Prozac, Zoloft, Cymbalta, Paxil, and more.
Each weapon lovingly loaded into their child by concerned parents before they send them off to their "safe" school. And while the child's backpack and pockets are checked by the armed force on the way in, the pharmaceutical poison is building up in his blood system, racing to the brain like a lit dynamite fuse.
As communities reel from one massive act of student violence after another, most recently in Newtown, Connecticut, the nation looks for answers.
