Kony 2012 Activist Jason Russell: Humanitarian/Alleged Public Masturbator


Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony hasn’t been brought to justice, despite the viral video that made the Internet rounds last week. However, one of the men responsible for the Kony 2012 campaign — intended on ending his reign of terror — has…for allegedly masturbating in public.


Invisible Children co-founder Jason Russell was arrested in San Diego last night after several people called police to report that a man in various stages of undress was running through traffic and vandalizing cars. At some point, he allegedly stopped to masturbate.

If it’s any consolation, he was reportedly drunk and “under the influence of something.” Although, it’s unclear what.

NBC’s San Diego affiliate has the story:

Jason Russell, 33,  was allegedly found masturbating
in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of
something, according to Lt. Andra Brown. He was detained at the
intersection of Ingraham Street and Riviera Road.

Brown said Russell was acting very strange.

Police said they received
several calls yesterday at 11:30 a.m. of a man in various stages of
undress, running through traffic and screaming. Police described him as
“in his underwear.”

Several people attempted to calm him down and when officers arrived they said he was cooperative.

to show ya — create an army of child sex slaves and kill thousands of
people, you remain a free man. Mono-fornicate in public, and they haul
your ass to jail.
