Joseph Kony: The Danger in the Campaign to Capture Joseph Kony

Who would ever deny that Joseph Kony is a very evil man, perhaps even demon possessed.  But the potential of this technique to manipulate the opinion of the masses is troubling.  I don't question the motive of documentarian Jason Russell but lives will be lost as a result of Russell's campaign.  Due to that fact, the references and substantiation for his claims should be exhaustive.  How fearful it would be to garner the support of millions of people who may be ignorant of the facts and manipulate them to destroy an innocent man.  I think the method is controversial and its potential if frightening.

  1. What? shameful ignorance

  2. Please don't misunderstand my statement. I'm not defending Joseph Kony. I think he should be captured and brought to justice. But this technique of manipulating the masses to support a cause could be used, intentionally or unintentionally, against an innocent person or people.

  3. Let him turn himself in, then with the world watching, let each side make their case. If he is indeed an innocent man, the truth will out.
