In 1989, Joseph Wesbecker took an AK-47 assault rifle to his former place of employment, wounded 12 people and killed 8 others. Wesbecker, disabled by depression, had been on disability leave for a year, and on Prozac for a month. He had been divorced twice, suffered significant workplace stress, and had a family history marked by serious psychiatric illness. The Power to Harm tells the story of the lawsuit the injured and the heirs of the killed brought against Eli Lilly, the maker of Prozac.
