Invisible Children/Kony 2012 group is suffering from visibilitySarah Grieco reports for NBC San Diego reports Invisible Children Co-Founder Detained: SDPD 03/16/2012:
A co-founder for Invisible Children was detained in Pacific Beach Thursday night for being drunk in public and masturbating, according to San Diego Police Department.Of course, such conduct - if it occurred - wouldn't be a terrible surprise to people familiar with the Christian Right gung-ho sorts. Yes, the San Diego police are claiming this guy was masturbating right out in the open like some dang hippie.
The story adds, "Brown said Russell was acting very strange."
The Young Turks did another news report on Invisible Children, YouTube date of 03/015/2012, Kony 2012 Sparks Outrage In Uganda:
Here's the Aljazeera English report to which The Young Turks segment refers, Kony screening provokes anger in Uganda 03/14/2012:
Here's a video from The Real News about US relations to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of the countries in which Joseph Kony is reported to be operating today: US Supports Election Fraud in Congo 03/16/2012. The US Special Forces Obama committed to hunting Kony are involved in training troops from the Congo. US military involvement in areas like this have real risks. I wish Congress were paying way more attention to these interventions than they appear to be doing.
