Michael Moore speaking out following the arrest of bomb making suspect Cesar Sayoc, and the impact has made its way to Michigan.
In a lengthy social media post, Moore said Sayoc placed a photo of the Genesee County native with crosshairs over his face on the side of his van.
Because of that, CBS affiliate 9and10news reported that Traverse City Police got a call from Michael Moore’s team on Friday.
Officers went to several locations in the city, like the Film Festival office, Moore’s home, and two movie theaters downtown.
“We went down to the Bijou and also the State Theatre and the Film Festival and we checked for any types of bombs with our bomb dog. We did not get any alert from the dog so we feel that those facilities are safe,” Traverse City police chief Jeff O’Brien said.
Moore also said he actually videotaped Sayoc during a “Trump 2020” rally in February 2017.
Moore said he went to the Florida rally just a month after President’s Trump inauguration, and they specifically filmed the people who came out to see the commander-in-chief.
The Mid-Michigan movie maker said the footage of Sayoc didn’t make it to the final cut of the film, but you can spot him several times in the unedited footage.
