Really how do they plan to go about this anyway? Uganda doesn't want us interfering in this cause at best it's only gonna piss Kony off and he might just start up all this again. He definitely deserves to be arrested and tried and imprisoned but I certainly wouldn't wanna risk causing a lot more suffering to the people there when they seem to have a little bit of peace at the moment just so we can pat ourselves on the back for catching another Hitler.
Really this has been going on in Africa for a LONG TIME and you'd be hard pressed to not have heard about it for years now. Taking out one guy out of hundreds just like him isn't going to change anything, you gotta start at the base and work your way up. If anything pressure from the international community should be put on the local governments to build themselves up and suppress such people from their positions of power.

"Spreading the Word" is basically a free service of the web 2.0 nowadays, if done correctly. This whole Kony thing is totally suspicious and won't do anything because structures of the clans and warlords in africa are somehow built like a mafia network around the whole country (as far as i remember seeing this in some documentary), which is not touched by anything done on the internet around here in the "first world". The internet doesn't even reach the regions where this would really matter. And besides of that the soldiers still have their guns and as someone said already, actions speak louder than words and that counts for the "good" guys aswell as for the "bad guys" (can be seen in syria or in the iran for example).
Another point is important, too : It might sound stupid when i ask that but why would you need all that stuff for only making a person (in)famous ? Why the donations when the project actually has been around for about 8 years (according to the video) ? As i said becoming famous or with something like that isn't really hard if you do it correctly. And it obviously worked well when i look at my twitter and facebook timelines. It just took a SINGLE video.
The reason it worked for the arabic revolutions that were going on last year is because it could reach the people and they could show actual physical presence (and also because they have had enough of their dictators). Another reason that the internet can be useful is also the fact that it can carry infromation out of the country which would otherwise be locked completely because of restrictions their government forces.
So if the reason for all this was really just to get him famous (for whatever it is useful) then i'd like to be proven wrong. BUT i really do not think it will have any use at all, as sad the situation in africa is, i just cannot imagine it.

I'm not going to lie.
I saw this coming.
"Jason Russell, founder of the Kony 2012 campaign, was arrested for publicly masturbating. Hopefully he wasn't thinking of the children."

I've heard this in my school. It's great that now everyone in the whole damn world knows about it. The bad thing is now people and even uguandians or whatever are going against it. It's every sad. Even one of the co-founders got himself arrested for jacking off in public. You guys brought up good suggestions. If only the video never got viral (NOT saying it was a bad thing in the first place) the small but powerfull communty can help stop Kony, without the presure of everyone else in their way.
This post seems very unorganized.......
