Communist rose tattoo and shoots up a 4th of July parade. Nothing to do with antifa I'm sure.

The picture of him in an FBI hat is my favorite. Especially as the feds scramble to delete his social media history.

Before his video was removed, I believe Crimo also stated he was being medicated with antidepressant drugs. Mind-altering drugs is a common factor in every single one of these mass shootings.

I wonder if he was talking to any retired FBI agents on Discord like the supermarket shooter was.

I used to smoke weed or hash every fucking day from age 14-17, back in the 70s. Anyone who says pot isn't a gateway drug is clueless.

My high school friends who continued to smoke are totally worthless, and we grew up in a very affluent area with great schools. It most certainly affects one's mental state.

Weed is not good for you.

Keep telling the truth, Alex. People are waking up to the fact it's NOT "just pot".

SSRI’s more likely to be the issue here.

Our then 20 year old bodybuilder/powerlifting son caught an unknown virus in 2017 which led to pneumonia and 100% life support for three days... After his two week intubation we were asked if he had any level of anxiety with which they should medicate for. We figured some low powered drug would be okay - just in case, not required. I went to work the next day and came to visit... I was utterly shocked as he was shaking like a heroin junky in recovery. I said "NO MEDS"! Stop it! The next day he was fine and relaxed.

I was convinced he was part of an experiment with a drug in the testing phase. We should be suspicious of ANYTHING handed out that doesn't have 20 years of basis behind it.

Thanks for shining a light on this; I think the users often end up on SSRIs - can tell you first hand SSRI drugs are horrible, they take all feeling away. Maybe they help some people? But for many they are a gateway to hell.

I want to know who produced the video for this psychopath. They knew he had murderous tendencies. And they could easily see he was unstable.

I love how all the pro-marijuana people show up and insist there is no connection between marijuana us and violence. Keep up the good work Alex.

I work in a field that brings me into contact with the extremes and I know their is a connection even if it isn't entirely clear what that connection is.

Alex. Growing up, almost my entire group of peers smoked a LOT of weed. Everyday. For years. Wake n bakes, bong rips, pipes, joints, day and night. All of us grew up to be fine. I am 47 now and not one of the people I knew ever shot up a school, nor became violent. Tons of celebrities smoke a lot of weed. I now know lots of people in their twenties. They all smoke constantly. My question is: why is my reality amongst my social group immune to this weed psychosis for over 25 years?

Duh.

Not called "stoners" by accident. I was a freshman at Keene State College in 1974. My next door neighbor in my dorm smoked pot when he got up, all day and before going to bed. He flunked out after 1/2 of one semester. That is where the term "flunky" comes from.

Like to know if he was also on SSRI! Many many documented mass killings were committed by people on SSRI scripts. Well documented and some successfully defended in court. The weed is definately an issue and I keep trying to get family members in Toronto to STOP the madness. It's simply getting to be very dangerous.. (but it's legal they tell me), and I sigh heavily!

Just need to point out that millions of people use marijuana and don’t have psychotic breaks.

I don’t think it is what you’re making it out to be.

This is an individual, and I know you’re looking for answers and connections as any good journalist would do. But I feel you’re hyper focused on what you want it to be.

Yes this kid was out of his mind and should have been doing nothing recreationally, but it’s not the reason he did what he did.

He watched tv and played violent video games too, but we all know that’s a weak argument.

Plenty of people do horrific things and don’t smoke pot either.

Plenty of people do great things and smoke or don’t smoke pot.

I feel like you’re driving this conversation in that correlation = causation direction incorrectly. I don’t think it’s the magic pill you are saying it is.

Im sure this dude was on a ton of prescription drugs as well and those have massive side effects that are not limited to violence and whatever.

Not beating you up, not shouting you down, just giving you my opinion.

Both the Uvalde and Highland Park shooters were "on spectrum" transsexuals. Both targeted innocent victims in the midst of trying to enjoy their lives because they had, for whatever reason, been denied the ability to do so themselves.

What Tribe gave them a month to party, and stick their hairy legs in our clean shaven faces?

If the kid has mental health problems, I'm pretty sure smoking a lot of weed won't help him.

And if he didn't have mental health problems, I'm pretty sure smoking a lot of weed could have something to do with his condition now.

Cannabis is the least of our problems and is actually beneficial as we do have an Endocannabinoid System. Some real problems: giving kids amphetimines for ADHD, the poisoning of our food supply, the breakdown in the family. I've probably smoked about a gram/day for 50 years. No calories, no problem. In terms of motor impairment it is right up there with caffeine. Why you keep harping on this nonsense is beyond me.

Speaking of Cannabis. This essay of mine has been read well over 10,000 times. If you want to understand the discovery of the Endocannabinoid Systems and why all adults should have the right to grow this is worth a read. Enjoy.

Ok, my not in depth knowledge of yesterday’s event is that this kid was shooting from a rooftop, reports are that there were two series of shots, 5-6 rounds each series. 6 dead, 24 wounded. Ok, so there was likely police presence during the parade. Not SWAT/active shooter teams, but police, and probably some heavier armed guys for mass gathering event. My two glaring questions are: how does this kid get off the roof and away for 8-10 hours? (Not sure on that time honestly); how is the number of killed/wounded that high based on shot count?

Just one small part of the total picture. This person is a perfect product of the society the evil Leftists have worked to achieve for the past several decades. A useful tool to help achieve their agenda of the destruction of western society. Destruction of the nuclear family; radical socialist indoctrination of all academia including kindergarten - dumbing down of society; destructive immigration policies; increased government power and control over citizens; increased dependency on governments; elimination of the Bill of Rights; demonization and weakening of law enforcement and the military; decreased self reliance and independence of the citizenry; reduction of basic freedoms; government control of social media and radicalized Leftist media; elimination of the church as the last bastion against tyrannical control; legalization and encouragement of the use of brain damaging killer drugs, including cannabis; legalization and encouragement of immoral behaviour; creation of racial and class divisions; and the overall devaluing of life. End result - evil people with no morals or conscience who do evil.

Oh Alex. Appreciate what you've done over the years but I can't take it anymore. Have to sign off. I agree - weed can mess up adolescent brains and like many things, kids shouldn't do it. But to blame mass shootings on marijuana??? Come on... Here's a thought - take a peak at big pharma and the anti-depressants the pedal. And then look at the number of shooters with these drugs coursing through their systems.

Maybe this has been addressed, but is there evidence that marijuana causes people to become isolated and/or violent rather than simply attracting those types?

Alex Berenson, tut tut.

Do you remember why pot was criminalized? Maybe you should do a bit of research into the propaganda campaign that associated "Marijuana" (which was a new name given to it) with the so called "lazy Afro-American community". The purpose was the normal ones – money, control and making black people look bad (I am white, Swedish heritage, grew up in a predominantly Muslim suburb of Australia and have lived in Oman and Africa, so most of my childhood friends were not white).

I have been a stoner since I was 13 (I am 43) and so are most my friends and brothers and not one case of psychosis amongst us or the broader community of hundreds of stoners we know. I use edibles for the last 15 years cause smoking is unhealthy. The edibles mean the THC is processed in the liver and becomes more potent and penetrates the brains blood membrane more efficiently.

So many of you speak about lack of motivation but I use edibles in micro and not such micro doses to motivate me and stimulate my mind. I use it to perform my work better and I use it as a pre-workout and as a muscle recovery substance and I can tell you it is far more effective then any other pre and post workout substance I have used (every day, average of 4 doses a day). I am 6ft, 90kg and quite muscly (10% body fat), plus I hunt, surf and skateboard (with my two young sons), so I am extremely active and motivated.

I am 43, I run my own business developing tools for architecture, engineering, and construction software for companies all over the world. This requires me to develop complex parametric algorithms using my advanced understanding of mathematics and logic.

I do know a few people who have suffered psychosis, but they were semi-alcoholics who were diagnosed as bi-polar and put on anti-depressants. So, it seems the legal drugs are the issue to me, funny that, its as if its run by the same people who gave us covid and the vaccines… oh wait up, it is!

Pot is the most useful plant known to man due to both its industrial and medical benefits. As you well know from the last two years; the elites are trying to destroy both our health and our economy. They are also trying to take away freedoms and cause division. They want us fighting over pot, guns, and sexuality. If you can’t see this, I would suggest you open blow the dust from your mind with a few edibles.

Peace and Love,

What Marijuana enthusiasts fail to recognize is the incredibly high concentrations of THC in modern pot can cause psychotic episodes. The pot in the sixties was way weaker and harmless.

"THC in high doses is just slow-acting brain poison " Yes.

But I would clarify further: "THC, as ingested by chronically smoking high potency cannabis bred for that purpose, is literal brain poison."

Nothing would be more tragic than throwing out the reality of cannabinoid-based medicine with the bathwater by not taking care to clarify that it's the SMOKING of the dried plant that is bad for you in numerous ways (pulmonary, cardiac, psychiatric) and that anyone who promotes the smoking of high potency cannabis as "medicinal" is a scientific fraud on the scale of Fauci and CoVid.

Reminds me of what can happen when you let go of the rope like what occurred in Germany’s Weimar Republic in the 1920s. Drugs legal or not impact the social fabric and don't ever think that policy is not being used to stitch the fabric together. More instability in life to come.

You've really gone too far with your anti-marijuana crusade, and you're passively aggressively implying that correlation equals causation. How do you know that this guy wasn't on all sorts of psychotic prescription meds, brought to you by the same people that bring these absurd covid vaccines?

I grew up around stoners - none of them were violent in any way. We listened to Pink Floyd and such and enjoyed each others' company. Those types of stories go on forever - I never met anyone that smoked weed that lost their shit like this guy. Of course, none of the people i knew growing up were taking all sorts of prescription meds to deal with everyday life.

It's not the weed that makes people lose their shit - it's the "legal" meds that all these shooters seem to have in common. And a society that's lost complete touch with real connections (exacerbated significant by awful covid policies) and seemingly a large portion of family values.

Do you drink alcohol Alex? Know what makes people angry and violent far more than weed?

HEY Alex

Do you like ENCOURAGING MASS SHOOTINGS?

DO YOU???

It’s been WELL ESTABLISHED that publishing these psychopath’s name and photo ENCOURAGES COPYCATS!

It’s well known that most of the time these killers CRAVE the media attention, AND YOU’RE GIVING IT to them! It’s also known that many times they desire to out-kill previous mass killers.

Exactly what purpose does it serve to give these psychopaths the notoriety they lust after? EXACTLY WHAT???

So I BEG you to stop doing this, and encourage others to stop doing it also.

And maybe, write a story detailing what I’ve pointed out, there’s LOTS of research out verifying what I’m saying.

For 20 years I worked in a naturopathic clinic. We used to have marijuana users come in all the time looking for a shortcut to testing negative on their drug tests which were required for everyone who worked in the oil and gas industry. There was no way around the fact that it took 2-4 weeks for THC to clear from the average person's system. With various detox protocols and sweaty workouts we could slice maybe 25 per cent off that. Regular use therefore cannot not build up THC in your system and influence the health of your brain and nervous system.
