Kevin Richardson was said to have been hit in the face with a motorcycle helmet in the Netflix series When They See Us. There are multiple problems with that allegation. The first one being that the arresting officer didn’t drive a motorcycle. The second being that in the real photographs from that night on April 19th, 1989 Kevin’s face was basically spotless. That didn’t stop Ava Duvernay from making the helmet a large portion of the film by making Kevin Richardson out to be a small cute innocent boy who goes for a good portion of the first episode with a huge black eye.
