    Very weird story for sure. Shame because I believe it will discredit the real story that needs to be realized by the world and what Kony has gotten away with for too many years. Why did this guy go nuts? Geez...I don't understand...perhaps he is bipolar or something?

    If it were drugs, I suggest he must be allergic to whatever it was.

    that's a bit extreme. i thought is was a catchy tune with the potential to make more people aware of "what's important!!!"

    Here's a link to Part 2 of the Kony 2012 series from Invisible Children, which was released about a week ago:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_Ue6REkeTA

    Also of note, next Friday, April 20 is the date that Invisible Children has encouraged people to plaster Kony 2012 merch everywhere to make him famous.

    These slave trade people disgust me. Sadly, the slave trade is still alive and well here in the US, too. That's really sad.

    Yeah,before the leader flipped out, One of East Noble's teachers asked for permission to use the downtowns merchants windows to plaster the signs they have printed off. It should be quite a sight,if it happens.

    I thought it was pretty catchy! I only watched the clip once yesterday afternoon, and it was still the first tune in my head when I woke up this morning.

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

    Could you post from photos when this happens? I'd love to see!

    Hey KPC, it would be nice if you could run a story with a full color photo of some of the Kony posters.

    We didn't do that, but there was an editorial from some EN students in Friday's News Sun, and more online.

    After the American in California who was promoting the capture of Kony did his very public naked display of himself, I had felt that support from US citizens for Kony's capture had lost a lot of momentum.

    I'm happy to see the USA does have a team of Special Forces who are actively assisting in Kony's capture. Best wishes to our Special Forces and all the local military who are pursuing the capture of Kony!!

    Sent by President Barack Obama at the end of 2011, the 100 U.S. soldiers are split up about 15 to 30 per base, bringing in American technology and experience to assist local forces.

    Exact details on specific improvements that the American forces have brought to the table, however, are classified, to avoid giving Kony the ability to take countermeasures.

    "We don't necessarily go and track into the bush but what we do is we incorporate our experiences with the partner nation's experiences to come up with the right solution to go out and hopefully solve this LRA problem," said Gregory, a 29-year-old captain from Texas, who would only give his first name in accordance with security guidelines.

    The U.S. troops also receive reports from local hunters and others that they help analyze together with surveillance information.
