Owner of Manhattan, Kansas restaurant bound over on 26 child sex counts
MANHATTAN, KANSAS – The longtime owner of a Manhattan restaurant has been bound over on 26 charges of sexual abuse against minors, KMAN Radio reports.
Arraignment is scheduled for July in Riley County District Court for Robert Iacobellis, 62, the owner of Bob’s Diner.
Charges range from aggravated indecent liberties to rape and sodomy.
KMAN reports that 24 of the counts carry a life sentence.
During a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Riley County District Court, three victims testified that Iacobellis touched, fondled or sexually assaulted them on numerous occasions, sometimes when they were as young as 7 years old, KMAN reports.
Iacobellis will be tried on 16 counts against the first victim, including charges of rape and sodomy; six counts of aggravated indecent liberties against a second victim; and four counts against a third victim.
During testimony at Tuesday’s preliminary hearing, one of the victims alleged the abuse began when her mother — who is a former weekend employee at Bob’s Diner — had Iacobellis watch her while she went to work. That victim alleged the abuse continued until January 2019.
Judge William Malcolm found enough probable cause from the testimony to proceed to trial.
Iacobellis was arrested in August 2019. An amended complaint listed 130 total charges against the three alleged victims.
Iacobellis will be arraigned at 2:30 p.m. July 6 with Judge Kendra Lewison presiding.
According to KMAN, Iacobellis remains jailed on a $400,000 bond.
Nurse convicted for sharing information
on child rape has license suspended
JOHNSON CITY, TN – A former Johnson City Medical Center nurse who was a sexual assault examiner has had her license suspended for five years, 18 months after she was found guilty of unlawful disclosure of confidential child sex abuse information.
Tessa Proffitt, of Jonesborough, was found guilty on six counts in November 2018 after she was discovered to have communicated with the mother of a child rape suspect about the case. William David Blevins was convicted in the case of rape of a child who was 10 years old at the time of the offenses.
During its investigation into Blevins, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) discovered Proffitt was communicating with Alicia May, a registered nurse who is Blevins’ mother, according to a Tennessee Board of Nursing agreed order.
Proffitt, as a sexual assault nurse examiner, had performed a rape examination on Blevins’ victim and collected evidence for a rape kit.
A Washington County grand jury initially charged Proffitt with two counts of tampering with evidence and one count of criminal conspiracy to tamper with evidence in addition to the unlawful disclosure charges.
PBS New Series Airs Just In Time for
Gay Pride Month
PBS is going all out to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month by launching a six-episode series of short videos on a dedicated YouTube Channel created by its Digital Studios.
Each Tuesday, which began May 26, PBS will release Prideland vignette focusing on an LGBTQ+ person and how that person deals with the ever-changing attitudes of Southern communities toward homosexual lifestyles.
On June 12, PBS will offer its member television stations the opportunity to air a one-hour companion special featuring series host and homosexual activist Dyllón Burnside.
PBS’s decision to partner with Burnside to push the homosexual agenda is an unjust attack on Christianity and a mockery of the Bible and God’s design for human sexuality.
Sadly, PBS is proudly promoting a lifestyle that is unhealthy to both the individual who participates in the unnatural sexual behavior and to society as a whole.
For example, Episode 2 is titled “An Openly Gay Pastor’s Journey to Acceptance in the Bible Belt.” PBS describes the episode this way: “Burnside introduces viewers to Rob Lowry, an openly gay minister at a small, but mainstream church in Jackson, Mississippi. He was offered the job before the church knew he was gay, but they accepted him with open arms when he told them he would only take the position if he could lead while openly gay.”
Other videos highlight transgenders, same-sex adoptions, and sexual “hookups.”

Austin TX BDSM Librarian Invited convicted male prostitute Drag Queen to read to schoolchildren
Remember though that BDSM stand for Bondage/Discipline Domination/Submission Sadism/Masochism and not only Bondage Discipline Sadism and Masochism.
A trail of depravity in a public elementary school.
School district does not consider this a problem!
Part of a pattern around the country?
There was a time when schoolteachers – especially in elementary schools – had to have moral integrity as well as academic knowledge in order to teach children. People of a certain age remember that. But those days are gone. Unfortunately, most parents either don’t realize it or don’t care.
Last year, our Texas MassResistance Director, Tracy Shannon, received a disturbing tip from a local parent. The Blackshear Elementary School had invited an Austin-area Drag Queen, David Lee Richardson, aka “Miss Kitty Litter,” to read to the children in the school library.
Two months earlier, MassResistance had exposed “Miss Kitty Litter” as a convicted male prostitute. “Miss Kitty Litter” had been doing “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in the Austin Public Library system. Tracy even held a press conference at the Austin City Hall about the MassResistance exposé.
How did a “Drag Queen” who is a convicted prostitute also get into the Blackshear Elementary School? What is going on? Was there a background check?
As Tracy continued to uncover more, Arthur Schaper of MassResistance filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Austin Independent School District for all materials regarding that incident, including the people who invited “Miss Kitty Litter” to the school. What we found out was shocking!
Brought in by school librarian – who knew about the prostitution conviction!
The FOIA request yielded quite a bit of information. We discovered that Roger Grape, the school librarian for the past seven years (who calls himself the “Guybrarian”) was the person behind inviting Miss Kitty Litter to the library.
We also learned that Grape knew that Miss Kitty Litter had a criminal record – and he knew that MassResistance had exposed it. But he still wanted to take every step possible to get him into the children’s library anyway. (He also attempted to invite additional Drag Queen performers to read to the children, according to the FOIA material.)
Here are the text messages between Roger Grape and David Richardson (Miss Kitty Litter):
Richardson’s texts have GRAY background; Grape’s text have BLUE background.
First, Richardson acknowledges to Grape that he might not pass a background check at all because of his prior conviction:
I REFUSE TO RUN THESE ALPHABET PERVERSE GROUP CHILD PREDATORS SCHEMEING TO GET IN AROUND OUR CHILDREN!!!!
Rather than be concerned about the well-being of the children, Grape instead suggests that there might be a loophole for Richardson, which he is happy to do:
If Our viewers wish to read this sick SEWER RAT CHILD PREDATOR BS, YOU CAN READ IT HERE.
(Deferred Adjudication in Texas means that the defendant pleads guilty to the crime, but the judge “defers” a guilty verdict and instead gives him probation. It is technically not considered a conviction, even though the court agreed that the evidence was against him and he admitted that he did it.)
In their texting back and forth, Grape and Richardson poked fun at Tracy Shannon, too. They both obviously were aware that she had already exposed this.
Lo and behold, Richardson passed the background check, even though Grape knew about his prostitution past, and Tracy had publicly announced it at a City Hall press conference.
Of course, because of the efforts of Texas MassResistance, Miss Kitty Litter was worried about possible protests at the elementary school. He even feared that parents might show up to try to stop the event! But the “Guybrarian” assured him that this school has more “progressive” parents, including the PTA, and there would likely be little or no pushback:
Library event scheduled during school’s “LGBTQ+ Pride Week”
The Drag Queen library reading event was scheduled during “LGBTQ+ Pride Week” at the elementary school. The fact that an elementary school would have such an event reflects the mindset of the people running things. It was apparently a district-wide promotion in the Austin schools.
A letter to the Blackshear Elementary parents was sent (or emailed) by “Mr. Grape, Guybrarian” about the upcoming ”LGBTQ+ Pride Week” reading event. He invited the parents to come and join their children at the event at the school library.
I REFUSE TO RUN ANY MORE OF THESE ALPHABET PERVERSE CHILD PREDATOR GROUP CONVERSATION.
IS THERE ANY ONE THAT DOUBT’S THAT THIS GROUP OF PERVERSE CHILD PREDATORS DO NOT BELONG ANYWHERE WITHIN A 100 MILES OF ANY CHILD, AND EVERYONE OF THEM SHOULD BE JAILED FOR FELONY CHILD ABUSE EVERY TIME THEY EVEN LOOK AT A CHILD!!!!
