U.S. Senate candidate Milton Wolf posted a collection of gruesome X-ray images of gunshot fatalities and medical injuries to his Facebook page and participated in online commentary layered with macabre jokes and descriptions of carnage.Wolf is the tea party challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts (R-NotKansas), and let's just say he had, pre-campaign season, odd hobbies. Namely, posting graphic X-rays of his patients and ex-patients, which Wolf says is legal to do because he didn't include names with the images. You might think that Wolf would be doing it to show the dramatic damage caused to the human body by America's favorite metal projectile, but he's a tea partier so let's just say he drew different lessons.
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.Well, ick.
“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.”
