Skip to comments.Michael Moore calls for photos of slaughtered Newtown to be released
Posted on 03/13/2013 7:49:46 AM PDT by Third Person
Schlockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore isn't pleased with the level of outrage or support for stronger gun control following December's massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
To gin this up further, he wants someone to release the pictures of the slaughtered children:
I believe someone in Newtown, Connecticut a grieving parent, an upset law enforcement officer, a citizen who has seen enough of this carnage in our country somebody, someday soon, is going to leak the crime scene photos of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. And when the American people see what bullets from an assault rifle fired at close range do to a little child's body, that's the day the jig will be up for the NRA. It will be the day the debate on gun control will come to an end. There will be nothing left to argue over. It will just be over. And every sane American will demand action. Moore discussed what such pictures might look like:
The six-year and seven-year-old children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School were each hit up to eleven times by a Bushmaster AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. The muzzle velocity of a rifle like the AR-15 is about three times that of a handgun. And because the kinetic energy of a bullet equals one-half of the bullet's mass multiplied by its velocity squared, the potential destructive power of a bullet fired from a rifle is about nine times more than that of a similar bullet fired from a handgun. Nine times more. I spoke to Dr. Victor Weedn, chairman of the Department of Forensic Sciences at George Washington University, who told me that chest x-rays of a person shot with a rifle will often look like a "snowstorm" because their bones will have been shattered into fragments.

How about photos of 9-11? Moore and those like him are hypocrites.
Maybe he should sign a release to show his autopsy photos from when his heart explodes.
He should do it while he still can.
I would like to know what was on the murderer’s computer and whether they have any idea of a motive?
This guy is a f’n ghoul.
I think you will have to stage them first, Mike. If they had any, they would have already shown them off, dontcha think?
Just rewrite the headline: “Michael Moore wants pictures of murdered children for his personal gratification.”
So MM wants kiddie snuff porn? This is expected. Leftists are all degenerates.
Exactly. Liberals howl and scream when graphic abortion pictures are shown, but they demand to see murdered children if it can advance their agenda? They really are ghouls.
So when police release pictures of gruesome serial murder victims strangled and cut through the throat, citizens will agree to ban 1/4” rope?
If you search up “chinese executions” in an image search you’ll see close up what an AK does to people. No need to use the kids. Maybe we should all send him images from that?
It’s a good lesson from a place where only the government, police, and criminals are armed.
They would be a lot less gruesome than a picture of Michael Moore.
Wondering if the law of unintended consequences will appear here.
One of the disturbing things about Newtown is that no security camera footage was ever released, the parents were not even allowed to see their children one last time to say good-bye (or to give positive identification), and all caskets were closed at the funeral.
Quite inconsistent with protocol in similar tragedies.
So go ahead, Mike, sound off. And while you’re at it, let’s find out what Eric Holder had to say when he was there, and why he had to say it in secret. News blackout on that one too.
Wll, it would set the FR conspiracy-mongers at ease.
Here’s a better idea Mikey, one you can carry out right away. Go over to a local photographer near you, strip down, and have him take hundreds of photos of you in the buff. Send the whole portfolio to Mayor Bloomberg with permission to use any or all of them for billboards, bus ads, store posters, soda cups, etc. to help his new “portion control” campaign with New Yorkers.
This way, you will help save lives more effectively than anything Bloomberg has thought of to date.
I can see the Portion Control ad campaign roll out (interesting choice of words) right now. Beneath each glorious photo of your quivering expanse of flesh would be the warning, “You don’t need Moore!”
So screw consideration of the families of the victims, MM has an agenda to flog.
“So MM wants kiddie snuff porn?”
Methinks MM should be fitted with an ankle tracking bracelet.
How about releasing the photos and details of Benghazi?
The “jig”, as Moore puts it, would be up for the Democrats if the media accurately reported on who’s doing the killing in America, how many murders aren’t solved, plea deals and flat out not even being charged.
And then they want to take OUR firearms away?
I agree and would like to see a forensic report on what type of bullets were recovered ?? The first responders said they found an AR-15 in the trunk of the guys car and that he used two 9MM pistols but then the media reports the people were shot with an AR-15 assault rifle!! Who do you believe, the first responders or the media?
They should post pictures of Moore’s liver.
Moore-on, 3000 aborted every day. Let’s see the pictures, FAT ASS!
MA Senate candidate (for Kerry’s seat) Ed Markey (D) has his first ad (for primary) running and it immediately shows him as a gun grabber. Starts off with former NRA head Charlton Heston holding up a rifle and doing the “from my cold dead, hands bit”. The general idea is vote for Markey and we’ll take away the guns from those Neanderthals who worship guns and ammo.
>>The 30-second spot opened with footage of the late Charlton Heston, who once served as the group’s spokesman and president.
The ad featured the conclusion of Heston’s 2000 NRA convention speech, in which he belted-out the famous quote: “From my cold, dead hands.” (The clause is a shortened version of the slogan popularized by the NRA: “I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.”)
In the ad, the narrator says the NRA has “been called the most powerful lobby in America, but that didn’t stop Ed Markey.”
The narrator adds that “long before tragedy swept our nation”highlighting a newspaper article about the Newton elementary school shootingMarkey worked to fight against assault weapons coming from China.
“Now Ed Markey is joining President Obama, fighting for tougher gun laws to make our community safe,” the narrator continued.
I’d rather see all of 0bama’s university transcripts/records.
There continues to be a lot of misinformation about Newtown. The AR-15 was used by the murderer in the school, per the Medical Examiner’s comments. Lanza committed suicide with one of the 2 handguns he was carrying. The “rifle” recovered from the trunk of the car was the Saiga 12 shotgun. The Saiga has a very similar appearance to the AR-15, which spawned a lot of confusion. Check an image, on-line, to confirm.
I do believe that you’ve caught the proper spirit of the campaign ... now we just await the - cringe - photos. As Colonel Kurtz said at the end of Apocalypse Now, “The horror ... the horror ...”
All I heard about was one or two funerals for the murdered children and one or two adults.
Why weren’t more publicized? Were there actually any more than that?
I would love to see someone knock him off!!
Or pics of his favorite middle eastern cult slicing normal peoples’ heads off?
release the videos of adam lanza attempting to buy guns. release video of adam lanza arguing w teachers day before. release videos of adam lanza entering school. release adam lanzas driver license picture. why does his death certificate show 12/13 as date of death.
My great hope is Michael Moore will someday have the massive stroke he so richly deserves.
I would be very much more interested in the Death Certificates.....along with Osama’s.
Watch the 5 minute YouTube video “Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom.”
You will see a film showing just a few of the 20,000 Poles murdered by the Soviets in April 1940 at the Katyn Forest.
And they were just a sliver of the 200 MILLION innocents murdered by socialist tyrants in the 20th century.
In every case, the tyrants first disarmed their future victims in the name of “public safety.” Every time, beginning with “reasonable and commonsense” gun registration.
1. Registration 2. Confiscation 3. Extermination
Methinks MM should be fitted with a blindfold and a last cigarette (or more fittingly a last Double Whopper with extra cheese and extra mayo). But nobody asks me.
I like your idea better than mine.
I wonder if there were even really two.
Maybe Mayor Bloomberg should post photos of Moore in his tighty whiteys as part of his anti-obesity campaign...
They haven’t said anything about computer contents yet, possibly because they were smashed up and so the forensics will take longer. But they did find written documents of some kind indicating that fame and a desire to outdo the body count of the Norwegian mass killer Andrew Breivik were factors.
This makes the media culpable for the continual sensationalism regarding these crimes in furtherance of their political agenda. Not that they are ever going to admit that.
Your statement is untrue. I read an article of one mother who insisted on seeing and saying goodbye to her young sons corpse.
Identification was done via facial photography by the coroners office. The coroner said as much in his first public interview.
One would think every one of the parents would have insisted to see their child one last time. Was this mother ever allowed to actually see with her own eyes her son? If she was allowed to, it seems likely the other parents would demand the same, would it not?
I saw the coroner say in that interview to the press he has ‘very good photographers’.
My understanding from prior homicides is that anything other than a visual inspection by a family member or close friend is not legally considered a positive id. The only exceptions are if literally nobody acceptable can be located and make a physical appearance.
Yes, she was allowed to see her child and yes, photo id is legal and common, particularly under gruesome circumstances.
Also, we don’t know how many parents insisted on seeing their children because they didn’t talk to the press.
I only know about the one, because she agreed to be interviewed.
Many may have had private viewings and opted for closed casket funerals because of the media. It’s what I would have done.
Too many Michael Moores out there.
Could you provide the publication/link to the interview you’re referring to?
I can’t seem to find anything that says one of the mothers insisted on and actually got to see her slain son. But then again I’m not that good with a computer either.
If you could it would make a lot of people feel better that at least one parent got to see her son and say some parting words to him.
It was in the Newtown Patch which is the local paper. I’ll see if I can find it after lunch. I gotta go feed the crew.
Ooh found it on the first try, now I really gotta go get lunch or they will eat me.
