Dylan Buckner, a high school football star, committed suicide in January after a battle with depression that his father said was exacerbated by isolation and lifestyle restrictions imposed by the governor and local authorities in Chicago under the guise of a ‘coronavirus crisis.’ Mr. Buckner says, “In Cook County, where I live, there have been 30 suicides of kids 18-and-under since last March when the pandemic hit, and there have only been five COVID-related deaths in that same age group, over that same time period.” [Note that ‘COVID-related’ does not mean ‘COVID-caused. Inasmuch as just about every death now is labeled COVID-related, there likely were zero COVID-caused deaths. Not mentioned in these reports is the likelihood that, when these kids first show signs of depression, it is possible that they were sent to a psychiatrist for help, and that the psychiatrist prescribed anti-depressant drugs, all of which create suicidal and homicidal impulses.] -GEG
