8:40 am
revealed with a number of islamic extremists in southeastern europe is being under reported by the federal government as based on classified documents obtained by germany's left party peter all of our investigations. there's a growing threat from islamic extremism in europe based in the balkans and the german government is keeping it to itself and that's according to a highly classified report that's being seen by some left party m.p.'s the media. the german federal government cannot discount the basic threat posed by individuals and splinter groups in the islamist scene in bosnia herzegovina the hush hush document goes as far as to claim that there's a direct link between radical islamic groups in bosnia herzegovina and people in germany the true nature of what this heavily classified report says hasn't come out parts of it were redacted from the copy that was shown to the left party the federal government has been trying to downplay the growing islamist threat in
8:41 am
public furthermore it's entirely unacceptable that the government continues to cover up the role of the gulf states my colleague charlotta been ski travel to bosnia herzegovina back in december she witnessed firsthand the situation on the ground there regarding islamic radicalization the local a mom is telling me that some of the residents have joined islamic state these women out of the building there are people who went to syria and forty on the side of i still but who tried to stop them. it looks like an ordinary sleepy village a few houses nestled between the hills not how you might imagine a cradle of terror. a look at the mom says he fears for his life after speaking out against those who joined eisel we do with these radical elements are always unpredictable and these people breed with me the aid at the same table as me and they want to shoot me this has been edited
8:42 am
version of the report issued by the government raises a lot of questions over what exactly germany knows about islamic radicalization in the balkans and how bad the situation actually is as we see in the arts or to our parliamentarian question the german government gives the extra time its expertize said it doesn't explicitly in the gate the possibility that single persons or groups who are belong to the islamistic scene of bosnia or else the governor could be a threat to germany and europe but in the same time the government indicts to speak about it financial transactions that are provided for example by the govt states or target of the bark and states as well as the sending of the moms by the states in contrary to the german secret service and it's now finished the german government tries to hide the fact of growing danger coming from islam is that groups from the
8:43 am
public. if somebody asks where are you from would you be offended that very question now some house during a debate on racism after a social media campaign was launched in sweden artie's honey sure sethi investigates. well from sounds like an innocent enough question doesn't it but it could land you in trouble here's what i actually have to explain that i first need to tell you about an online campaign launched in sweden to help expose racism hash tag no stranger we hope to raise awareness regarding the extensive issue of racism that actually does exist in sweden although many want to believe that we live in the world's most tolerant country they are dearest shakespearean says of being subjected to racism and ten south asking why are you from rep some people up the wrong way even though i was born here people always ask me where i'm from i hate it when they do that nobody put are you decide where my home is where i come
8:44 am
from doesn't concern you and it shouldn't matter i say shouldn't we ever ask people about their country of origin to be on the safe side. well here's some advice from a man behind the hashtag no stranger campaign you can also question just make sure you do it right it's ok to wonder about someone's country of origin but it should not be the very first thing to ask a stranger about because the reaction that follows is usually very stereotypical and racist like oh you're from viet nam i think it's quite terrible that you guys
8:45 am
eat dogs. so its name first originated and no follow up questions got it. and finally every day household chores can actually be fun floating in zero gravity is our favorite video of the week straight from the international space station. yeah thanks for sharing your sunday with us here at our today we are back in about half what. i would normally guess manufacture consent to stick to the public well. when the
8:46 am
ruling classes project themselves. with the family merry go round be the one person. doing or middle of the room sick. to leave the room the real news is really. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last wrong turn. your attitude up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for you so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each day. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was
8:47 am
a cave. still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one different person to speak to now because there are no other takers. to blame that mainstream media has met its maker. to watch. here's what people have been saying about rejecting the night with the sixty's full on austin the only show i go out of my way to launch a lot of the really packs of. yap is the john oliver of our three americas good to
8:48 am
say that we are apparently better than nothing that i see anybody had ever heard of love redacted the next president of the world bank go straight to the rubbish seriously send us an email. of how to really negotiate that memory over and over and over again. and again water flying can scream. this is summer after i turned eight. when ever really knew what to expect from. during
8:49 am
a particularly bad swing she went through some really desperate things there and she put us all in the bronco and to the spread drive down of the river. before we got to the river she was just purely robotic. she decided it was time for all of us. to die. my memories of that moment were really in black and white. i'm not sure that i ever really met my mom again after. strange story out of florida this morning where the mother of three children drove into the ocean off her daytona beach. the pregnant mom spoke of demons before
8:50 am
driving into the atlantic. police say they've never seen anything like this. the tiny city of newburgh new york is trying to come to grips with the deaths of three young children who died when their mother drove them into the hudson river among the victims are two year old lance pierre and here's a loving month old sister cops we should take nothing for granted not our loves nor our lives our families or friends even a sanity one minute all is well the next we're plunged into darkness unable to process what is real and what is mercury's. fortum stringin realized this old too young is the summer after i turned eight she should not be in line and she knows it was the moment. that shattered trust.
8:51 am
you know how do you know how to trust anybody after that. forced to confront a mystery beyond comprehension she spent decades haunted in search of answers in pursuit of peace when something like killing all six of her children. made sense enough to put the kids in the bronco and drive into the river i see it. gravels it again water flying and kids screaming and somehow she managed to dig it up to back out of that. and that's an incredible victory for somebody in that state of mind you know there are other mothers don't win that battle. autumn's mom did eventually die by suicide alone on a country tony steph and was now we're done with. children. i'm laying in bed at night in my room. listening to
8:52 am
a houseful of morning. just shattered the whole family just shattered the children shattered me it has become so commonplace these irrational acts and horrific scenes that we've almost become numb to it we've seen them in schools and public spaces in homes and churches. all over the news try as we might to understand them we can't try as we might to ignore them they call to us still we call the paramedics. they tried the roughly the reviver. outside of the remote and i was with those patients but. it was cold it's two thousand and four and the downings world has just been shattered his daughter a victim of an unimaginable act of violence but it was how this eleven year old girl died the truly horrified the world how cats candace hanged herself when can us first star and we just we asked ourselves how could we not know
8:53 am
she was then unhappy the downings didn't realize it at the time of course but her case was not a rare event no candace was far from alone she started on this drug somewhere around january and these things make you unafraid they make you do things you wouldn't do normally they make you able to put a rope around your neck and hang yourself. they were still dizzy from death traumatized and broken when they solved the mystery the drugs responsible they say a cold s s r i's and they're among the best selling drugs in the world s s r i's better known as antidepressants these are some symptoms of the prairie psychiatric drugs like assess our eyes have been defended with religious zeal by their believes and damned by others as some of the most dangerous drugs on the planet
8:54 am
distinguishing truth from fiction has been a challenge and this is place the public in the an enviable position of deconstructing the scientific and medical dog on their own in the midst of a thirty he a social experiment as director of the national institutes of mental health thomas insel has been at the center of a storm of contradictions about the use of these drugs so i think we have to be very humble about this right now because we've often been so self-congratulatory because we have after all many people feel made great strides. the numbers don't really support their doctor insoles candor is sure to shock and upset many on all sides of the debate the word failure is one few have dad to utter fundamentally why we failed here why has the suicide rate not come down why have as they measures disability whatever those might be why have those continued to go up instead of
8:55 am
down well all the numbers are going in the wrong direction so we're already failed what's gone wrong here a lot of people say it's because of stigma and access the fact is that actually more people are getting more treatment than ever before so it's hard for me to quite believe that i would just submit that from the end i am age perspective. the answer about why we failed is a little more disruptive and that answer is that we don't know enough to hear the director of the and i am h. say now that all of the axle taishan about psychotropics. from the media from academia from the profession from governments were not merited is unsettling after billions of prescriptions and hundreds of billions of dollars in drug company profits how did this occur i think that to our feel has gone off track here by devoting so much of its resources over the last twenty or thirty years both publicly and privately to under trying to understand how the drugs work but you've
8:56 am
got medications here that at most reduce some of the symptoms of mood disorders of psychotic disorders they don't in any sense provide a cure this change of heart contradicts what we've been told about psychiatric drugs for a generation now and raises serious questions about how and why these drugs have been dispensed so indiscriminately using antidepressants or any of the psychiatric drugs is simply not it's not understood is not explained it's not do well to ponder i think they're in a different class of drugs from most of the drugs that we take for our other elements in the eighty's and ninety's s.-s. our eyes were the first in a class of new mental health potions heralded as wonder drugs and miracle curious they were extolled as safe and effective solutions for the age old problem of depression and were marketed as such thus began an aggressive march towards
8:57 am
a new era in psychiatry one which boasted chemicals for the mental health conditions that a dog to mankind for millennia thirty years later however the window on that era and its bold proclamations appears to be closing in the immediate it can make a huge difference you could have someone going from being psychotic to being non-psychotic which is a pretty amazing change in behavior. but i think what we we need to recognize has that happened or last fifty years is that they haven't. siobhán to be as good as we thought they were. while the drug companies ruthlessly defended their magic bullets in the courts and through the press they were in effect stigmatizing people who were harmed by using them in the early one nine hundred ninety s. this issue had reached a peak was prozac causing violence and suicide but what happened was that there psychopharmacology committee almost everybody on the committee worked for the drug
8:58 am
companies so the conflicts of interest was so enormous that the f.d.a. had to give them all letters for giving them with their conflicts of interest they can be sued it was a manner of how do we cover it up how do we hide it at every step of the process towards approval and marketing thereafter was designed to hide and mislead the public and physicians about the suicide side effect lilly's own secret files implicate the f.d.a. poorly by robert temple and thomas as being complicit in a scheme to whitewash the dark facts about prozac. has been called the house that the president before the drug was introduced clearly reported earnings of six hundred million dollars annually prozac changeless fortunes and the company banked at least twenty one billion dollars in profits from the drug over the life of their patent. head.
8:59 am
when i say to some people prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in our society that seems to be the dividing line for some people who already know what's true or have read about and understand it and then there's others who think of that's a myth that can't be true they simply can't conceive of so they stop listening terence young is a member of parliament in canada serving oakville ontario just outside of toronto after a prescription drug caused the death of his daughter vanessa he founded an advocacy group drug safety canada vanessa collapse in front of me her heart had stopped basically she said. it up to go upstairs when you lose a child your world is upside down and i was thrown into a study of medicine of medical jargon out how the health care system works and when it doesn't work pay and i didn't ask for it but it was my way of dealing with the loss of an s. or so it was in a sense my way of grieving and it started the day she died for five
9:00 am
years young investigated the practices of the medical and drug industries and in doing so he says he realized have pharmacy influence had permeated every construct of modern society the loss of his daughter coupled with the shocking truth she uncovered through his medical research led him to write death by prescription and become one of canada's most od and proponents of informed choice. our parish has read the sad half of. what i saw her. and out of it i don't like how it was that there was one that i cared and that.
