Reactions on Moore’s Facebook page vary.“You are one sick person to even think of publishing those pictures. There is no good reason that you could come up with for the pictures of those kids to be exploited for your agenda or anyone elses for that matter,” Barry Krantz writes.“Michael, I agree with you about this,” writes Barbara Isabella Taylor. “I remember the impact of seeing the South Vietnamese general murdering the prisoner, practically on live TV. That was the day the Vietnam war became real to me.”Moore says he spoke with Dr. Cyril Wecht, past president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, who described what the injuries could potentially look like from a child killed with an assault rifle.
“Depending on the number of shots striking a child’s head, substantial portions of the head would be literally blasted away,” she said.Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy saw results of the carnage firsthand.Veronique Pozner, whose son Noah was shot 11 times, brought Malloy to her son’s open casket at the funeral home, the Jewish Daily Forward reports.“I needed it to have a face for him,” she said. “If there is ever a piece of legislation that comes across his desk, I needed it to be real for him.”This isn’t the first time Michael Moore said something controversial about the horrific shooting. On Dec. 14 he published on offensive tweet in an apparent attempt to bash former President George W. Bush.
