Tea Party Candidate: ‘What Kind Of Gun Blows Somebody’s Head Completely Off? I’ve Got To Get One Of Those!’
Milton Wolf, a radiologist, is challenging Kansas Senator Pat Roberts from the far far right. He posted gruesome images of gunshot fatalities on his Facebook page, poking fun at the wounded. For example, he’d say things about how a gunshot victim wouldn’t complain about his awkward head position for an x-ray, or compare a victim to someone in a Terminator movie.
Wolf declined in an interview with The Topeka Capital-Journal to clearly answer questions about whether he continued to place images of deceased people on the Internet. He asked to keep copies of the Facebook posts shown to him, but when denied, he walked away.
“I’m not going to play these kinds of gotcha games,” he said.
An array of professionals involved in medical ethics who viewed the images or were provided a description of the materials made public by Wolf condemned his airing of the information outside confines of a doctor-to-doctor consultation or for the purpose of formal medical research or textbook instruction…
In a Facebook discussion of an image of the person decapitated by gunfire, Wolf shared that the X-ray was among cherished artifacts from time spent working as a medical resident at Truman Medical Centers. The graphic image shows a skull broken apart like a smashed pumpkin. Chunks of skull remain attached by tissue with vertebra exposed at the neck.
“One of my all-time favorites,” Wolf posted to the Facebook picture. “From my residency days there was a pretty active ‘knife and gun club’ at Truman Medical Center. What kind of gun blows somebody’s head completely off? I’ve got to get one of those.”
