Although the media seems to be focusing on the KONY 2012 goal of capturing this warlord, there have been some hiccups along the way. Jason Russell, co-founder of Invisible Children and director of “Kony 2012”, was detained for masturbating in public just a month before his long-awaited “Cover the Night”. His actions were blamed on extreme exhaustion and dehydration. Nonetheless, this was the person everyone viewed as the trustworthy Christian who was making a change in the world. Unfortunately, this impromptu incident has a lot of people questioning the campaign now. It’ll be interesting to see the outcome on April 21st.
Because PSU is situated in the heart of Portland, it’s expected than many students will be involved in “Cover the Night” Portland. Will you be a part of this event? Have the current incidents affected your thoughts on this campaign?
