Russell, 33, was found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of drugs, according to Lt. Andra Brown.
The news comes at an odd time, as the organization’s “Kony 2012” video had blown up on the internet and was garnering a huge response. To the casual observer, this Christian father of two does not seem to portray good moral values.
The naysayers who recognized the campaign’s flaws — namely, its glaring inability to evoke any change at all, other than encouraging a sedentary generation to copy-paste a hashtag to trick their friends into thinking that they watch CNN — will only have further cause to argue their point.
On a less serious note, damn. It couldn’t wait? Hopefully the Kony action kits included Tide To Go, otherwise there is no hope of salvaging the mess made.
