United States Senate candidate Milton Wolf, Kansas, created a stir when it was discovered that he had posted graphic X-rays of gunshot victims on his Facebook page.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Wolf also “participated in online commentary layered with macabre jokes and descriptions of carnage.”
Wolf, a Johnson County radiologist, […] said in an interview the medical images were legally uploaded to public social media sites and other online venues for educational purposes. They also served, he said, to demonstrate evil lurking in the world.
However, Wolf and others viewing these Facebook postings relentlessly poked fun at the dead or wounded. The gunshot victim, Wolf joked online, wasn’t going to complain about the awkward positioning of his head for an X-ray. In a separate Facebook comment, Wolf wrote that an X-ray of a man decapitated by gunfire resembled a wounded alien in a “Terminator” film and that the image offered evidence people “find beauty in different things.”
