This is normal behavior

for a Saudi family. Have sex with the maid, beat the maid, don't pay the maid, take the maid's passport. Of course, Saudis think he did nothing wrong. This is the norm in Saudi Arabia. I lived in Egypt for many, many years and saw much of this same abuse. In addition, my own maid (and some of her friends) told me how they were tortured in Saudi Arabia, i.e., made to put their feet in a bucket while the Madam of the house poured hot bleach into the bucket, slapped them repeatedly, pulled their hair, etc. And the "Gentleman" of the house would have sex with them. It's Arab supremacy and is a way of life practiced by a large majority of the Saudi population. And even though Al-Turki was studying for his doctorate, all he knew was the way he was raised and continued this lifestyle in the US. I hope he serves every single day of his sentence and is a very, very old man before he returns to his homeland.
