The filmmaker behind the controversial Kony 2012 viral film campaign was detained in Pacific Beach, Calif., on Thursday after being found drunk and performing a sex act in public, NBC San Diego is reporting.
The San Diego police department told the TV station Jason Russell, 33, was possibly under the influence of a substance when he was found vandalizing cars and masturbating.
Mr. Russell, the co-founder of Invisible Children, was acting strange and running through traffic in his underwear.
Jason Russell’s 30-minute video, now viewed 76 million times on YouTube, highlights the atrocities perpetrated by Kony, head of the Lord Resistance Army (LRA) rebel group that once terrorized northern Uganda.
Funded by the San Diego-based charity Invisible Children, the film tells the story of a former child soldier named Jacob and then issues a call to action to viewers to help “make Joseph Kony famous.”
Although the film has raised more than $5-million and won the backing of millions of people, including celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Rihanna, the charity behind the project has faced criticism over their message, methods and financial transparency.

Am I the only one who thinks every city should have a designated open masturbation and open sex zone, for those who get off on that sort of thing?

It's pretty hard to get involved in an atrocity, even as a mere observer, and come away emotionally unscathed. Just soaking in the details of the terrible experiences of others can leave you in an entirely different mindset, and often the scars leave you prone to addictive substances.

One of the head researchers/editors working with Romeo Dallaire on Shake Hands With The Devil committed suicide before the book went to print. Dallaire himself has major post-traumatic-stress issues too...of course, he actually saw it happen.

The footage is on the TMZ website. The guy was slamming his fists on the ground in the video and yelling. Made me a laugh, guy is a joker.

But then they wouldn't get off (no thrill) on that thing anymore and just do it in non-designated zones.

Hmm, I find it a little convenient that a week after the video is released, a perfectly sane looking guy goes off the deep end....

Maybe the government wants to discredit him because they don't want to catch Kony. Kony is a puppet for them to stay in Uganda and secure their oil interests.

Kony 2012 campaigner Jason Russell detained for masturbating in public

Russell, co-founder of Invisible Children, allegedly vandalised cars and made sexual gestures while wearing his underwear

Posted Image


One of the co-founders of Invisible Children, the San Diego-based charity which is campaigning for the arrest of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, has been hospitalised after police said he was detained for being naked and masturbating in public.

Jason Russell, 33, was picked up by police in San Diego at around 11.30am on Thursday after receiving numerous calls from the public about a man vandalising cars, being apparently under the influence of a substance and making sexual gestures while wearing only his underwear.
According to local TV station NBC, San Diego police spokeswoman Lieutenant Andra Brown told a press conference in the city that Russell was co-operative as he was detained by officers. "He was no problem for the police department. However, during the evaluation we learned that we probably needed to take care of him. So officers detained him and transferred him to a local medical facility for further evaluation and treatment," she said.

Invisible Children has shot to fame in recent weeks after one of the videos that it produces in order to publicise the atrocities of Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army went viral. Viewed more than 76m times, the video gave a high profile to the group's cause, but also put the tiny charity at the centre of global scrutiny.
Critics have condemned the group for a perceived lack of transparency in its financial records and for over-simplifying a complex issue. They accused the group of being fame-seeking and of having an overtly western focus on what is a regional African problem. Some also pointed out the group had taken large donations from rightwing Christian fundamentalists groups in the US, who have also funded anti gay-rights causes.

However, the group and its many defenders mounted a strong defence, detailing its financial history and saying that their sole aim was to highlight a dreadful and ongoing human rights cause that had garnered little attention for decades. They were also hailed for using social media to engage young people in social activism.
Scores of support groups have sprung up all over the US and the world and a resolution of support for the groups' aims has even been introduced in Congress. The group is planning a day of mass action in protest at Kony for next month that aims to distribute more than a million posters bearing the logo Kony 2012 across the US.

A brief statement by the group in the wake of Russell's arrest said that being at the centre of a massive media storm may have taken its toll. "Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalised suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition. He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better," said Invisible Children's chief executive Ben Keesey in the statement.
"The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday. Jason's passion and bis work have done so much to help so many and we are are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue."

Invisible Children released a statement about this.

Now people know that you comment on stories without even reading the articles. Prove us wrong.

Umm, did I say he didn't do this? I think you missed the part where I put the tinfoil hat picture, therefore making it a joke.

Not to say that the government couldn't have drugged him and taken his clothes. :bigblush:

Two articles say he was detained Thursday morning, and two say he was detained Thursday night...A couple of them say he was naked, while the others say that he was in his underwear...

Interesting....

Who knows though, maybe this was a ploy by him to get even more attention towards his video. I've seen people do crazier things for fame.
