Georgia teen suffers breakdown over fears her parents would discover youth pastor’s rape

Published

A Georgia teenager was so fearful her parents would learn she was being raped by her youth pastor that she suffered a nervous breakdown.

The 14-year-old girl met Nicholas Kelley through New Bridges Church, in Lawrenceville, when the 34-year-old began counseling her in December 2015, reported WXIA-TV.

The relationship turned sexual over the summer, police said, and the girl snuck out of her home Monday to be with Kelley but was hospitalized due to her anxiety about her parents.

Her parents learned Tuesday that the youth pastor had raped their teenage daughter, and they called church leaders.

Kelley then admitted to the pastoral staff that he had engaged in sexual activity with the girl at church and in local parks, police said.

Church officials called police, who arrested Kelley on charges of child molestation, statutory rape and aggravated sexual battery.

Kelley remains jailed without bond, and police are investigating whether there are additional victims at the church.

“In situations like this where a youth pastor uses his access to children and position to satisfy a sexual appetite, it is always a concern that there are unknown victims,” said Cpl. Deon Washington, of Gwinnett County police. “It is very disturbing that a person would use religion and counseling to exploit a child sexually.”

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

The move comes hours after police were kneeling along with protesters.

Cincinnati sheriff deputies replace American flag at the Justice Center with ‘thin-blue-line’ flag

Published

on

Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio's third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.

During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.

While the flag may have been created in support of law enforcement, it has been adopted by white supremacists and taken on a darker meaning.

WATCH: DC protesters turn over ‘agitator’ to police — then the agitators try to start a fight with cops

Published

on

Protesters in Washington, D.C. were captured on video handing over an agitator to police, while other agitators in paintball tactical gear appeared to try and start fights with police.

Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.

"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.
