ARE ANTIDEPRESSANTS ARE A PRESCRIPTION FOR MASS SHOOTINGS?

Over the weekend, a John Madden Football Tournament in Jacksonville ended with gunfire that left three dead. Details are emerging that the shooter, 24 year-old David Katz, had a long history of mental instability treated with various medications.

As in the recent school shootings where the gunman was treated anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medications, it’s long overdue, again, that we ask, “what are these drugs?” and “are we over medicating our kids?”

Investigative Reporter Jon Rappaport joined us back in February following the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School shooting to talk about this very topic and what every parent needs to know.

About Michael Serio

Being on-air wasn't Michael Serio's passion, at least initially, but rather he was happy serving in a off-air capacity as a radio gypsy. Fast forward nearly forty years (through a lot of call letters and formats) now it's difficult to get this producer-turned host to be quiet especially when it comes to food and politics, Blame it on Elizabeth Dougherty. Michael heard Ms. Dougherty as a guest on another show talking about food, and reached out to her about hosting her own show. Turns out, Elizabeth had dreamed of hosting her own show for years so it was inevitable that these two should meet and work together. Michael gave her the technical platform to talk, and Elizabeth demanded that he keep up with her. Michael and Elizabeth married in 2013 and through hard work and perseverance, both "The Dougherty Report" and "Food Nation Radio" have been heard on radio stations across the country and reaching listeners around the world.
