Invisible Children: Jason Russell’s Wife, Danica Russell, Speaks Out About Husband’s Masturbation Incident
Jason Russell, the co-founder of Invisible Children, has received an enormous amount of criticism for recently being filmed naked and arrested for publicly masturbating as well. After the KONY 2012 video was released, Russell, along with the rest of the organization, has been focused on and the subject of a controversial debate. Although many are claiming that drugs and/or alcohol were the cause of this breakdown, fewer are suggesting that dehydration, exhaustion and stress are to blame (and most people are aware of publicists and what their jobs are, hence the majority not believing the latter).
Here is Danica Russell’s message to the public:
“Thank you to those who continue to support both us, and Invisible Children. The organization is an extension of our family, and we hope that Jason’s vision and work toward peace in the region remains the focus, and comes as soon as possible, as they continue to work in his absence.
We would, again, like to make it clear that Jason’s incident was in no way the result of drugs or alcohol in his body. The preliminary diagnosis he received is called brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration. Though new to us, the doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks. Even for us, it’s hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention – both raves and ridicules, in a matter of days.
Jason will get better. He has a long way to go, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery. He is, and will remain, under hospital care for a number of weeks; and after that, the recovery process could take months before he is fully able to step back into his role with Invisible Children. During that time, we will focus not on a speedy recovery, but a thorough one.
On Jason’s behalf, keep your attention turned to the end of Africa’s longest running conflict, and setting a precedent for all future injustice.
With love and overflow of gratitude for your prayers, we thank you.”
Viewers were shocked in the early hours of Sunday to watch contestant Daniel Echaniz 31, apparently force himself on 23-year-old student Monique Amin, who had passed out drunk after a boozy party.
Amin was asked about the incident the next day in the diary room, which led to the investigation. The female didn’t know much about the incident so the tape was reviewed where she can be seen barely moving, seemingly unconscious.
As the scandal began to engulf the show, one of Brazil’s most watched TV programmes, police officers arrived at the house and interviewed Ms Amin for three hours, before taking her away for a rape examination, according to sources.
This seems so impossible seeing as the guy knew he was on television, but I guess there are people out there that idiotic. Poor girl, who is apparently still on the show and participating…
Omaima Nelson, 44, committed a heinous crime back in 1991 when she was just 24-years-old. The notorious Thanksgiving weekend murder took place in their Costa Mesa apartment just one month after the two married.
Nelson, originally born in Egypt was charged with killing her husband, William Nelson, 56 at the time, and has been serving a 27-year sentence. Not only did she kill the man, but she bludgeoned him, chopped up his body and then proceeded to cook him in various ways. Before she began to skin her husband’s torso, cook his head on the stove and fry the hands in oil, she put on a pair of red shoes, a red hat and red lipstick as if she was excited for the endeavor.
After cooking the, what she though were edible, remnants of her husband, she took the rest to ex-boyfriends in separate black bags and offered them each $75,000 to dispose of the evidence. Ironically, her claim was that this was all in self-defense after she was raped the previous night. Right. That makes sense. The makeup, cooking and disposal of his body was all just a way for her to defend herself.
She also claimed she was sexually assaulted by her brother and stepfather and was forced to undergo a female circumcision, a ritual mutilation of the female genitalia practiced in some parts of the world.
The Orange County district attorney’s office opposes freeing her on the grounds that her crimes were especially heinous, and that she had a history of violence before killing her husband.
‘This is probably one of the most egregious mutilations we’ve ever had,’ Senior Deputy Dist. Atty. Randy Pawloski, who prosecuted the case, told the Daily Pilot. ‘It is one of the most gruesome and notorious crimes ever committed in Orange County.’
Nelson is scheduled to appear at a parole board hearing next Wednesday in Chowchilla State Prison in Central California.
An earlier bid at parole was rejected in 2006.

Amanda Know, who is now 24, is very hopeful that she will be returning to the United States and released from the Italian prison where she is currently serving a 26-year sentence for the murder of her former roommate, Meredith Kercher. She has been heard making remarks about them finally believing her, which is a huge relief, I’m sure.
Knox and her boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, now 27 were both convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher. The victim, Kercher, was found half naked with her throat cut in a brutal death. Although both Knox and Sollecito had denied any involvement, investigators had believed they were acting oddly happy during the discovery and focused in on them as suspects.
The original evidence, two items that were found in the Kercher’s room, is what prosecutors had to go on as far as convicting both individuals. They have now found that not only is there a tremendous amount of evidence pointing in a different direction, the evidence they do have against Knox and Sollecito is now being seen as unreliable. In fact, other than those two items that are shaky evidence, there is nothing else to link the couple to to death of the Meredith Kercher.
There is another man, drifter rather, who has been linked to this case from the beginning. Unbelievably, there was a numerous amount of evidence built up against him, but it goes unrecognized by the courts. Not only was his semen found inside her vagina, but there was also a hand print of his on the wall in Meredith Kercher’s room that was made in the victim’s own blood.
While that may seem sufficient enough, there was also feces on toilet paper from the drifter, which was left next to an unflushed toilet. It’s as if he purposely left evidence at the scene of the crime. And the icing on the cake is what happened to him after Kercher was viciously murdered; He fled to Germany. It is ridiculous that two innocent individuals have been serving four years for a crime that was very obviously committed by someone else. And they knew who this someone else was! How absolutely awful.
Hoping for the best and vindication for Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito, and the families of all involved.
