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.

The doctor watched Delaney head into his apartment, and he waited outside for the police to get there.

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?

Delaney knew what he was doing and his intentions were plain and simple...Russell, obviously was not in his right mind and wasn't intending to show people his testicles for self gratification. I'm pretty sure that if he was showing kids his testicles, somebody would of followed him or beat the mess out of him. Simple cut and dry...

This was a really stupid post. You sound like an idiot for even making the comparison.

One word: "californication"  this type of crap is common in CA and even accepted by most who live there

There's a difference between a flasher, and someone who's having a complete mental breakdown.

Does it matter?  Both men need help, and people are making a mockery of someone's suffering.  Jason Russell was clearly having a mental breakdown, the likes of which hopefully none of us will ever have to endure.  Have a little compassion.

Why call out SWAT? Doesn't Arpaio have a Pecker Posse? If he doesn't, I'm sure he could bowwow one from Babeau.

"la raza" has nothing to do with it. The dentist office guy has victims that he exposed himself to while the kony guy doesn't. Both are sick bastards. And both are white...

That occurred in San Diego, eh? Could we blame the "La Raza" and it's enablers in law enforcement and politics? Quite frankly, southern cali is pretty much like that of Mexico.

Sad really.

Really? What makes the dentists office flashers crime different/worse then what the Kony guy did?? Can you imagine the look on a police officers/judges/prosecutors face if a regular person sexually assaulted someone and tried justifying our actions with the excuse ” we were really thirsty and tired” thats why I put my junk in some kids face. That is the excuse the kony guy used correct????

On another note...what kind of denial is jason russels wife living in pretending her husband is not homosexual????

 He does, but the unit leader is tied up with administrative hearings trying to get his job back.

 Yeah' I know that this was a Phoenix PD operation but they could have asked for MCSO input. (You don't ever want to ask Babeau's "input")

Witnesses in the jason russel case claimed that he was walking up to their car windows and slapping his erect cock on it. He was masturbating intentionally in front of little kids. Its completele bullshit the way their is two kinds of justice in this country..one for the rich and the other for the rest of us.

What? The Knoy guy exposed himself to way more people than the dude at the dentist office. And what's with the observation that they were both white? Whites are the majority in this country, it would make sense that every once in a while they do something wrong too.

 lol...Yeah, you go down to Mexico and either start whacking off in the middle of the street or walk into a Doctors office with your junk hanging out in front of kids.

You'll be lucky if it's the Police that get to you first.

No, you're wrong about everything. I am not a Jason Russell supporter by any means, but it's obvious he was not committing a SEX CRIME. There's no evidence to back up the masturbation claim -- it was an early report uncorroborated by anyone, and its a claim that only the most sloppy and sensationalist sources are perpetuating. Jason Russell was naked in public, yes, but this was, by all accounts, unintentional and "spur of the moment"; Daniel Delaney purposefully showed children his genitals. Like I said, stupid.

 So are you applying this to only one of the people or both?
If not both, why?

Oh poor jason, I sure hope he starts taking a nap, that way he can be restored back to sanity. Or maybe he and his boyfriend stick to just one hit of acid instead of nine

People are clearly ignoring the fact that only someone undergoing some sort of mental breakdown would have been acting in that way.  Everyone is judging him as if he were someone who made the clear-minded decision to walk around the way he did.  He was someone under an unimaginable stress that caused him to act erratically.  Society's inability to understand its own human nature is astounding.

Did you just say that jason russel accidently took off his clothes?? How long have you been the PR person for jason russels charity?? I find your comment to be completely insulting Jenny. Do you think the new times readers suffer from some kind of mental handicap???
