...Walters agrees with longtime family friend and Charlottesville-based state delegate David Toscano that the father took "Herculean" measures to help the troubled young man, getting him therapy, MEDICATION, an inpatient stay, and then ensuring that he took frequent hikes to get out of the house. Gus withdrew from William and Mary last month.

Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay more than $2.2 billion in criminal and civil fines to settle accusations that it improperly promoted the antipsychotic drug Risperdal to older adults, children and people with developmental disabilities, the Justice Department said on Monday....

....It is part of a decade-long effort by the federal government to hold the health care giant and other pharmaceutical companies accountable for illegally marketing the drugs as a way to control patients with dementia in nursing homes and children with certain behavioral disabilities, despite the health risks of the drugs.

The details of J&J's settlement are largely secret, but you can be sure some of the payoff/hush money is going to the victims of Risperdal-induced murders.
