Is "Kony 2012" Activist/Alleged Public Masturbator Jason Russell Getting Better Treatment Than Phoenix Dentist's Office Flasher?
As you may know, one of the men behind the "Kony 2012" viral video, Jason Russell, was nabbed in San Diego last week for allegedly masturbating in public and generally acting like a weirdo, which he isn't being charged for.
On the other hand, here in Phoenix, 40-year-old Daniel Delaney allegedly showed up to a Phoenix dentist's office on Friday and showed off his penis to the waiting room, before leaving.
He's facing both felony and misdemeanor charges of indecent exposure.
Russell wasn't even arrested over in San Diego, just checked out while his group, Invisible Children, kept its PR campaign going.
A comment on yesterday's post about Delaney noted the Russell case, and how he's not exactly getting the same treatment as Delaney.
Three people in the waiting room -- including a 6-year-old kid and the 16-year-old receptionist -- got a full view of Delaney's testicles and "semi erect" penis while he stood just a few feet in front of them.
The receptionist called to the doctor for help as Delaney gathered his genitals and ran out the door, and the doc followed Delaney as he went to an apartment building about a block away.
Delaney unsuccessfully barricaded himself inside the apartment, as Phoenix police's SWAT team got the search warrant and got in there.
Meanwhile, you can see some of Russell's freak-out over at our sister paper L.A. Weekly, where he appears to be pretty naked and weird.
This morning's question: is Russell getting better treatment from police than Delaney?
