Good Point

Interesting point about the VT shooter found here:

Some news accounts have suggested that Cho had a history of antidepressant use, but senior federal officials tell ABC News that they can find no record of such medication in the government\’s files. This does not completely rule out prescription drug use, including samples from a physician, drugs obtained through illegal Internet sources, or a gap in the federal database, but the sources say theirs is a reasonably complete search.

Umm… indeed. I don\’t quite know what to say about that, but it\’s interesting in a bothersome way.

    Not to get all anti-government conspiracy here, but is it any surprise that the federal government can look up at a moments notice what prescriptions you’ve ever had? HIPAA my ass!

    Privacy is federally protected, except when it isn’t (!). Since the guy was *involuntarily* committed to a mental institution, some rights go away; for instance a person can be *forced* to take anti-psychotic drugs, but I presume this requires violent *actions* not just *thoughts* (double-think, here we come!).
