Kony 2012 Filmmaker Detained

My major problems with Invisible Children and their Kony 2012 video are that it severely over simplifies the issue and pushes for war, rendering the video more a means of propaganda than an informative documentary; and there are at the very least some discrepancies regarding the priorities of the organization's use of donations.

Invisible Children co-founder and director of the Kony 2012 viral video Jason Russell, 33, was taken into custody in San Diego Thursday for intoxication, masturbating in public and vandalizing cars, according to reports.
Russell was allegedly walking around an intersection wearing “speedo-like underwear.” He then removed the underwear and made sexual gestures, sources told TMZ. Several bystanders held Russell down until police arrived, ABC’s San Diego affiliate reported.
