Social media sleuths did it again today
, circulating false reports implicating a man who once lived in Fayetteville in the mass Las Vegas shootings.
Remember when similar sleuthing falsely identified a UA professor
as one of the white supremacist marchers in Charlottesville?
This time, the Facebook detectives added 2 plus 2 to get five thanks to a possible former connection between the Fayetteville man and a woman
identified as a companion — but not as suspect — of Stephen Paddock,
identified as the Las Vegas shooter. The woman lived for a time in Northwest Arkansas, a variety of public record websites indicate and she shares the falsely identified man's last name. The alt-right was fired up about today's find
because the man they falsely identified ..... wait for it ... watches Rachel Maddow
and doesn't like Donald Trump.
