A reenactment photo after the fact was posed, during an interview. The event of the arrest itself was not in any way staged. She wasn't the first and never claimed to be, but she was the first to have the wherewithal to take it to court and win. She was robbed and beaten in 1994 in Detroit. By a robber. In Detroit. In 1994. Are you claiming her friends waited 40 years, drove to detroit and robbed her?
who needs facts when random "information" on the internet can prove anything.
No. It actually can't. It's usually not that hard to find out what is fact.
First of all, use your common sense. What is logical? What were the motivations of the ones involved. Was it even possible?
Take the moonlanding, holocaust, and corona vaccine conspiracies for example. The amount of people that would be needed to silenced, bribed, or involved with it would be impossible just as the amount of money that should have cost, not to mention verifiable evidence, making these clear conspiracies.
The ones claiming these are true usually take one or two details and keep stretching those claiming it is "proof" and ignoring the rest.
Secondly, the internet is not exactly the only place you should check. Follow up sources.
Thirdly. If a fact has only one source, one person or place stating it, and all or most others don't, it's probably untrue.
And if you see multiple websites giving the same facts in the same or nearly the same wording it was probably copied so should technically be considered one source.
