Scientology ‘vultures’ have latched onto another tragedy.
The ironically-named Citizens Commission on Human Rights — a Scientology front group that runs an ongoing hate campaign against psychiatry and psychiatrists — has distributed free DVDs about anti-depressant drugs in the area where killer Shane Clancy lived.
Reports have indicated that Irish police are investigating whether Shane, who murdered Seb Creane (22) before killing himself, may have misused anti-depressants that had been prescribed for him a week before the tragic night.
Scientology drugs message after Irish murder
The DVD, which is also available online, details interviews with psychiatrists, psychologists, and journalists, exposing what it calls “psychiatric violations of human rights.”
Making A Killing: The Untold Story Of Psychotropic Drugging is made in the US, but has been distributed in Ireland by a branch of the CCHR.
The DVD’s tagline says it tells the “story of big-money drugs that fuel a $330bn psychiatric industry, without a single cure.”
But since its release, one professional involved with the DVD has distanced himself from the CCHR.
Professor Howard Brody said that he believes anything produced by this organisation requires independent confirmation.
He said: “I regret very much allowing myself to have become involved in this project and would like it to be known that I disown and disapprove of the final product and the way that it has been disseminated.”
Another Scientology front group, Narconon, uses Scientology’s quackery methods instead of proper medication.
