Saudi Princess Allowed to Keep Slaves in her California Home


42-year-old Saudi princess, Mechael Alayban, held on a $5 million bond after her arrest in July for accusations of human trafficking, was released when a judge dismissed the case. A Kenyan woman accused Alayban of confiscating her passport and paying her $220 a month for service 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. Authorities arrest Alayban after the Kenyan escaped from the apartment and flagged down a bus driver. The Kenyan woman claimed that the princess held her as a prisoner in Alayban’s apartment in suburban Irvine, California.

Alayban is the wife of of Saudi Prince Abdul’Rahman bin Nasser bin `Abdul`Aziz al Sa`ud, the grandson of King `Abd’ullah of Sa`udi `Arabia. The prince is also listed as Forbes’ seventh most powerful person. Being that slavery is sanctioned under Islam and is common especially with royal families, the Saudi consulate provided in July and Alayban was ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device. This was the first case prosecuted in Orange County under California’s Proposition 35.

When police searched the California residence, they discovered 4 more women from the Philippines who were held captive as slaves. Alayban responded that it wasn’t so bad for the women because she allowed them to use her pool and Facebook, and argued that this wasn’t slavery since she paid them.

Defense lawyer Paul Meyer released a statement saying, “These women had cell phones, Internet, Facebook, and the family even bought cable in their native language for them,” to argue that the women couldn’t be considered slaves since they were treated so well. “They enjoyed full use of the spa, gym and pool, and were often dropped off to shop alone at neighborhood malls, all paid for by the family,” Meyer added.

After Friday’s hearing, District Attorney Rackauckas said, regarding the Kenyan woman, “I think she believed she was a victim. I don’t think she was lying to us. I think it was a misunderstanding and miscommunication,”.

    Oh she thought she was a victim but wasn’t really??? If a prosecutor said she thought she was raped but wasn’t really or thought she was mugged but wasn’t really, would anyone buy this crap. Only in America. SMH!

  • Mike-Sandi Bodway

    fuck that camel fucking whore

  • Danny Collins

    judges are bought and paid for
    seen this story a few months ago
    Saudi money buys all of our government
    why do you think Syria aid was mentioned?

  • Bill Berger

    This D.A. needs to be fired, tried for conspiracy and treason, convicted, and sentenced to 99 years in Gitmo.

  • Melissa Katsmom Votano

    There is just so much wrong with that beginning with confiscating a passport……SMH. Slaves got room and board, such as it was, but they were still slaves just the same. Some of them even got to go to town with the masters…some were even trusted to go alone. Of course cable, Facebook and cell phones didn’t exist. Prisoners get cable and internet but they are still prisoners.

  • Independent Tom

    All liberals endorse slavery and demand Sharia be imposed in the U.S.

  • Charles Hill

    These are the real supremest in this world. The Arabs they believe they are better than the europeans and have enslaved white women as well. Watch out europeans you may well be enslaved by these Arabs.

  • Kimberly Elliott

    not in america you don’t but money talks to the spineless. wheres jackson and sharpton now??? if it were black and white the big mouths would have had this already!!

  • Susie

    Wonder how much they paid the Judge…..he or she will most likely retire soon!

  • Abrogation

    This will only continue until the pissed off outnumber the sheeple and law enforcement can no longer stop natural law happening. Once that happens True justice will prevail again, that will happen until once more the rich corrupt the system. There are ways around this but human greed will likely prevent those from happening for many cycles.

  • Anna Helen Johnstone

    If she wasn’t free to leave (no passport), then she was a captive, on slave wages

  • Anna Helen Johnstone

    Please bare in mind that Arab does not ‘equate’ to ‘Islamic’ (Islam is also practiced in the European slavic states by white people and has been since the days of the Ottoman Empire) . There are christians in the Arab world too.

  • Rick Moree

    There is so much wrong with this. Perhaps if she had hired black women the media would have followed the story a bit more closely. Slavery is slavery no matter the race of the victim.

  • TheseGuysMustBeOnBathsalts

    being held hostage and forced to work is slavery

    good masters and bad masters gave their slaves different working conditions

    that didnt change the fact they were not free to walk away

  • Leslie Anderson Hoffmann

    All signs that the time of the Lord’s return draws nigh!

  • Amy Wigsmoen

    What this story doesn’t answer is were any of the women allowed to leave?

  • awakeawareomshanti

    “Silence! I KILL YOU!”

  • faye

    There is no slavery in AMerica…If this woman wants to “keep” slaves and they do not have freedom and cannot come and go willingly, than they are slaves…..Maybe she should go back to Saudi Arabia if she wants to practice her culture…This is America

  • Sandalsnoshoes

    Anyone know where this woman is now? Did she have to go back to her Master’s wife?

  • billwhit1357

    California needs to fall into the ocean, as has been predicted! I has not been part of America for years now, too Looney! Same goes for Washington DC, Detroit, Chicago, and New York, all ran by Communist Demonrats and going down the sewer!

  • Iman Hadieh

    One would think a man of color might be more sensitive to such global issues as slavery and racism. But it appears that you, like many COMMON men, have become exactly that which you hate because you are incapable of independent or critical thought. Good luck with that, brotha.

    And fuck your mother.

    Are you sure there’s no slavery in America? Really sure? :)

  • Scotch Rebellion

    Damn right Charles, did you know that Arab muslims killed or enslaved over 100,000,000 million Africans from 700-1850 AD and they are STILL DOING IT, mostly to poor migrant workers from Bangladesh and the Philippines.

    The European slave trade emerged out of competition between European kingdoms for resources. When Spain started purchasing Africans from Mulsims in North Africa for use in the Canary Islands, it started chain reaction of chattel slavery.

    I’m pretty sure that Kenyan is black.

    What are you talking about? Charles makes an excellent point, why are you criticizing?

  • samstrange

    Why is a Saudi princess residing in Cali?

  • Yukidongo

    They were slave… Even if you go to the labor board, they weren’t paid minimum wage. And, a person that is not allowed to come and go at their leisure is by our laws being held captive. This is what awaits us, folks with the push by our Muslim President to Islamize this country. In Kansas, of all places, the kids walked in the first day of school to the Five Pillars of Islam! Ahhh, but if you don’t agree they will make an example of you siting “hate” crimes of some sort, or discrimination. Christians better stand up or they are going to be the same Dhemmis that these people are, or dead. That is the Qu’ran. That’s what it teaches all of them–even the so called “moderate”.

  • Yukidongo

    Just like the Saudi they released (deported) after the Boston Bombing. Their reason: Terrorist Activity. Obama is Muslim Brotherhood, and has done more for Extremist Islam, and that religion in this country than any man on earth.

  • reaper_69

    This is further proof that we have the best judges that MONEY can buy!

  • Yukidongo

    England and France are done for. Even Putin says so, and he says America is committing suicide. The population growht, from a sociological point has to be 1.9 children per family to maintain a country’s identity and cultures. In France, it is 1.3. England 1.6. And, they are allowing illegal Islamists into their countries at an alarming rate. The kicker–these Islamists have up to four wives, and they are propagating at a rate of 4.3 children per family. They don’t need the Muslim hordes to conquer them, they are going to be conquered from within, by population growth, BECAUSE they, just like WE won’t make them assimilate and live by our LAWS.

  • Yukidongo

    Exactly… Probably 90% of the African population that was enslaved and brought here, were traded by Muslims, and these were villages full of people that would not submit. They were sold to the Dutch, and Portugese, and others to be sold as slaves in America.

  • Gina Russell

    so it is better to enslave people and keep them then to cut off their heads and blow up their cities……hum k got it. :/ shakes head at this argument

  • Yukidongo

    You haven’t been following the news much? The Christians in those Arab states are being slaughtered by the thousands right now. There were several Westernized countries over there where they co-existed. Egypt, Syria, Tunis…Guess what the Muslim Brotherhood and their Arab Spring targeted? Those countries…even Libya. Christians are fleeing Syria to keep Obama’s Al Queda from killing them. They already wiped out the oldest Christian village in the world–where they still spoke Aramaic. There is either Islam, or there is the rest of the world. If they aren’t forced to assimilate into the populations they move to in the countries they are flooding, they take over. That is what happens. Too bad we don’t have a Charlemagne, today.

  • Gina Russell

    no, it stated their passports were taken from them. you have to understand the mindset of these ladies, they are not raised with a lot of knowledge, and are taught they are not as valued as men. I am surprised that young lady ran at all

  • Gina Russell


  • Yukidongo

    Yeah, dude… One would think that. But, do you know what the freed Black American Slaves did when they got to Liberia? They enslaved the black people of that country, and it has only been since the END of the 20th century that there has been any change in that. They made being FROM Liberia a second class caste, and basically used them as slave labor. So much for the “one would think”…right?

  • Yukidongo

    Very well thought out… Slavery, is slavery no matter how good the living conditions!

  • Yukidongo

    I am about to be of a mind that female judges shouldn’t even be allowed. I know that is ridiculous, and that women CAN make good decisions…BUT, the majority of the ridiculous decisions that have been made in the past few years have been made by Progressive judges legislating from the bench. Don’t belittle me too much. I am a female, and just reporting what I have seen. I am sure there are great female judges, and we don’t hear about them because they don’t make such idiotic and controversial rulings.

  • Yukidongo

    And, more and more they are doing this. They practice Sharia, and keep four wives–some infant and toddler wives, which is child molestation. But, the government under the Terrorist in Chief is pushing Islam down our throats…and why should they be exempt from Obama care… This country is in serious trouble, and so many refuse to see it or call people like me Islamaphobes. Not…if they were made to follow our laws, and assimilate. They could worship as they choose. But, they are forcing Islam down the throats of Americans even past the point of separation of Church and State. In our schools, nothing Christian is allowed, but Islam is. They are here, and they are planning to take over. Non converts will be Dhemmis or dead. That is Islam…moderate, extremist, whatever you wish to label them, they believe in the teachings of the Qu’ran, and they plan to conquer us, enslave us, tax us, and convert us, or kill us if we refuse to submit. That is directly from the Qu’ran. That is what they believe–all of them,

  • Yukidongo

  • Don Hendee

    Just another instance of Islam NOT being a religion of peace. They’re still slaves, slavery is sanctioned in Islam. How can that be “peaceful”?

  • Glenn Mason

    some one give her the kiss of lead,and let her husband move his ass out of America.
    then vote that judge into the streets and he was bought and paid for.

  • Czechbikr

    In the early days of this nation up until 1862 and the final end of the war between the states, many slaves were treated better than others and had good housing, clothing, food and were treated almost as free citizens…within that family. They were still considered “chattel” (personal property) in the eyes of the law and were confiscated as assets in loan defaults and estate division. It appears that nothing has changed since then. I calculate that these slaves are being paid about 45 cents per hour…I thought that California had a minimum wage that the liberals are so proud of that they just increased it. Under current minimum wage, these folks are owed $3,620.00 per month each for back wages…and isn’t there a civil fine for an employer not paying the correct wage?

  • Kathy Thompson Ellis

    just because you treat your dog well, provide an air conditioned dog house, plenty of food and water and doggie treats does not mean that the dog is not your property. You own it. That is how Arabs think of their TCN (third country national) servants aka slaves. Regardless of the ‘luxury’ of their surroundings and provisions, it is still human trafficking. I have seen it first hand. If they displease the ‘master’, there are repercussions. They don’t get fired. They get punished.

  • Kathy Thompson Ellis

    they are not hired. they are bought at a price. human trafficking.

  • Mykal Faircloth

    Proving once again, liberals have no problem with slavery.

  • jed_hoyer

    slaves aren’t paid.these people were paid and received room/board.

  • Peter Antonocci

    so f*cking stupid. they had cell phones so they could have called the cops anytime, thus they had the ability to leave anytime. they were obviously not being held against their will and nobody in this country will make them go back. they are not “slaves”, just underpaid servants who choose to keep their current occupation. finally “escaped”? i would have thrown a chair threw the window long ago. idiotic story.

  • terlet

    So, they’re free to leave?

  • Leanne Musson Watts

    I live about 70 miles from Wichita and I have friends who live in Wichita. I even sent then a link to the story about that and have gotten no reply. Sure makes me wonder what’s up…

    Some fool will probably find a way to blame Jews.

  • Leanne Musson Watts

    Wondered about that my own self…!

  • Leanne Musson Watts

    Women are regarded as cattle as well as the servants. I’m surprised she was allowed to come.

  • terlet

    I’m sure my ancestors treated their slaves real well, too, but they weren’t free.

  • Leanne Musson Watts

    That’s Sharia , coming to a town near you!

  • terlet

    Such as your limited towel-headed mindset.

  • Leanne Musson Watts


  • terlet

    Honey, Southern blacks got room, board, and a right to part of the produce. But, I guess it wasn’t really slavery then. Someone needs to tell all the “African-Americans” now, don’t they?

  • Leanne Musson Watts

    Other races live there as well…

  • Czechbikr

    My point exactly and in this case the government is once again complicit just as Chief Justice Taney was in the Dred Scott v Sandford decision.

    This used to be wrong, before obama….

  • raptor45

    She looks pretty great in that cage but alas….she has walked. I wonder just what inspired the “judge” to release this islamic cvnt…. Either money or the promise of a familial beheading. To defend saudi honor, of course.

  • Jackson Everage

    WTF. Seems like the prince dropped several dollars around Irvine’s Courthouse and where ever else he needed too. But hey they had cable, phones and Facebook. Holy crap. Oh yeah they are moose limbs too. Obongo said it’s ok. F these people.

    Now we know how we are going to be treated under the NWO huh? 16 work days, 7 days a week for a penitence, BUT! we are gonna get internet access and tv… yay slavery!

  • Athanasios1

    Islam is an insult to humanity.

    Again, just goes to show how certain ethnic groups get special treatment in this country. I guess it’s been like that since the day it started; why get upset now that it isn’t my ethnic group any more.

    Just a resounding affirmation that discrimination and racism is alive and doing very well today.

  • Adi Adrian Manteuffel

    That kenyan bitch and traitor probably had not a working permit for the US and that’s why she’s called a slave now? A princess of Saudi Arabia or the Emirates is a diplomat so she’s got the right to employ people at her home to home working conditions, most diplomatic missions in the US do so… hope that H.H. Alayban will receive a high incompensation for all that she had to endure in the USA!
    (P.S.: Incomes, some examples…a morroccon hose cleaner earns aprox. USD 150 for a full time job 6 days on 7 and there do not exist anny fix working hours and the same income dose touch a full time worker in a factory in Romania. A slave dosen’t get anny income, he can be happy to remain alife.

  • AD

    I also like how everybody bitches and complains when a ‘slave’ is owned by another individual, yet people cheer and encourage it when the slaves belong to their corporate masters, who are assigned a number when they are born, work long hours for pitiful wages which are taxed to near nothing, just to have spend it all on overpriced services and overpriced homes and overpriced food (which, by the way, is poisoned to keep them content and docile). Tell me how that’s acceptable and normal.

  • Magicmaninthesky Nothanks

    Very few. An insignificant number. Basically almost all Arabs (with any power) are Muslims.

  • Deb Maddalena

    And women were considered to be the property of their husbands. They, too, were chattel and were held in such high esteem as, say, a fine automobile. They could be beaten to within an inch of their lives and it was OK. Slavery comes in many guises.

  • barry soetoro

    Saudis are allowed to keep slaves because the president is Obamatollah.

    When you have a scheming moslem as president, he ships weapons to AL QAEDA and does whatever his Saudi masters (the Wahhabis) tell him to do.

    Remember the Boston Marathon? A SAUDI NATIONAL named ALHARBI was tackled fleeing the bombing. He was taken to the hospital under house arrest with severe hand burns and shrapnel in the back of his leg.

    So what did Obamatollah do? He sent Michele Obama to visit ALHARBI in the hospital (photos available on the web), then rushed the paperwork to quickly DEPORT Alharbi within 10 days, before any investigation could gain steam.

    I have read about Islam, and I will say here and now, it is evil. The Qu’ran tells you to kill every non-muslim. How do you expect us to feel about that? Women who are raped are tried and punished while the rapists go free. Men marry children, rape children, and thigh children, muslin have committed more than 21000 acts of terror since 9/11/01.They burn churches and kill priests. Obama is a muslim and a member of the muslim brotherhood. How do muslims expect to be accepted when they are either actively part of the problem or tacitly allow these things to happen. The difference between muslims and Christians is that if you don’t convert to Christianity we pray for you, we don’t cut your head off.

  • Susan Kohler

    By law, no but human trafficking is a worldwide disgrace. The difference is Christians, real Christians, hate it, muslims embrace it.

  • David

    Negros had it a hundred times better in colonial America than they did in back in Africa. They weren’t “slaves” per say, and the idea that we changed the way we treated them wasn’t just unnecessary, it was a violation of plantation owner’s rights. Let Mechael keep her Kenyan and Filipino women.

  • Dennis Harold

  • Andrea Yoder

    The media has got to stop posting this anti-Islamic stuff. This is why Americans have such uneducated, misinformed, and bigoted views towards Muslims living in the U.S! 9/11 is over. Not every Muslim had something to do with it. Owning servents is a normal part of the culture she came from, so yes, she should be able to freely practice her faith and have servents from her own nation. Sounds as though her servents were living pretty good to me. We need to be more open, tolerant, and accepting as Americans. Just because it doesn’t fit into our backwards Judeo-Christian culture doesn’t mean it is wrong. Freedom of religion means EVERY religion. If Catholics are allowed to continue to ENSLAVE women by refusing to let them use birth control or get abortions when they need to and should be, then an Islamic woman of royalty should be able to have servents. I find what the Catholics do to women by teaching them fear and guilt for just wanting to protect themselves FAR more opressive than anything a paid servent for a Muslim princess has to go through.

  • SomeGalNTx

    Think about this for a second. Back before our Civil War, we had “good masters” and “bad masters.” The “good” slave owners (whatever…if you can call that good but for this argument lets go with it) gave their slaves decent living quarters, allowed them to marry, have kids, kept them fed, and they lived their entire LIVES on the plantation, working their butts off for such treatment, and felt lucky that they had such a fine master, comparatively. (Yes we all know they were not treated FINE, but there were some really cruel bastards out there)
    However, they were NOT FREE! They were not free to come and go and go as they pleased. Sleep in, stay in bed when ill. Have sick days. Days off. They, like these women described, worked 7 days a week!
    No matter how nice the master is to you, if you can not QUIT, and leave, and you are working 7 days a week, you are a slave.
    Slavery in America was OUTLAWED. It doesn’t matter if it is allowed in YOUR country, or religion. It isn’t HERE.



  • Roy Montgomery

    Actually taking a passport is a common practice. I am in Nigeria Africa and have worked overseas for 7 years. The company takes my passport and holds it in their safe as they need it to renew my work visa and residence permit from time to time. It is also a big deal if one is lost or stolen. If a person is given, the freedom of outside communication and allowed to travel in town alone they also had ample opportunity to contact ANYONE including the police and immigration to alert them of their slavery. Since they did not I see them as being willing participants not slaves. If you look at the conditions where they came from I am sure you will see that women’s rights are all but non existent and this treatment of women is the norm. The article is misleading to me. It says the Kenyan flagged down a bus after she escaped, yet she had a cell phone, internet and Facebook and was allowed to shop at the mall alone. It does not add up. She had ample opportunity to contact authorities at any time. I would like to hear THE REST OF THE STORY. Something is missing here.

  • Roy Montgomery

    Please show me the chapter and verse you are referring to. I remember the Bible saying:

    Matthew 5

    English Standard Version (ESV)

    The Sermon on the Mount

    5 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him.

    The Beatitudes

    2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

    3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

    5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

    6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

    7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

    8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

    9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons[a] of God.

    10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Salt and Light

    13 “You are the salt of the earth, but
    if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is
    no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under
    people’s feet.

    14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[b] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

    Christ Came to Fulfill the Law

    17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.


    21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother[c] will be liable to judgment; whoever insults[d] his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell[e] of fire. 23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Come
    to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to
    court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to
    the guard, and you be put in prison. 26 Truly, I say to you, you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.[f]


    27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes
    you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you
    lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes
    you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you
    lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.


    31 “It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.


    33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.[g]


    38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic,[h] let him have your cloak as well. 41 And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42 Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.

    Love Your Enemies

    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers,[i] what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    If a person is given, the freedom of outside communication and allowed
    to travel in town alone they also had ample opportunity to contact
    ANYONE including the police and immigration to alert them of their
    slavery. Since they did not I see them as being willing participants not
    slaves. If you look at the conditions where they came from I am sure
    you will see that women’s rights are all but non existent and this
    treatment of women is the norm. The article is misleading to me. It says
    the Kenyan flagged down a bus after she escaped, yet she had a cell
    phone, internet and Facebook and was allowed to shop at the mall alone.
    It does not add up. She had ample opportunity to contact authorities at
    any time. I would like to hear THE REST OF THE STORY. Something is
    missing here.

  • Robert Rittenhouse

    The only story you hear about is one person. What about the women from the Philippines? perhaps they wanted more from life than serving a princess. It is why I hate Disney princess movies. They don’t portray what being around royalty is really like. It is always some princess waiting for true love. BS. There are guys lined a mile long to marry into that family. In the end, a slave is a slave. Indentured servants were paid, and then forced into labor for years. Why do you think indentured servitude is illegal? It is a form of slavery. I just think this Saudi family has so much money, they could buy the POTUS.

  • Robert Rittenhouse

    The Zionists want to make mind slaves. Much easier and less violence.

  • Michael

    She had a passport they took from her, remember? They could have just as easily had a cell phone for her that they never actually gave to her. Just in case a situation like this arose. Either way 16 hrs a day every day of the week for 220 bucks a month is a human rights violation already. Her job is an hourly job. If she worked 16hrs a day every day for even minimum wage her weekly salary would be $1480. Her Monthly salary on a standard 4 week month should have been $5920. Quite a bit more than $220 a month. Even if you bring in room and board nonsense her yearly salary would have been $71,040 or almost twice what the average american worker makes. If she was paid her legit amount she easily could have bought a place of her own. You are asking questions of the wrong person sir. If it wasn’t slavery then it was still a violation of probably countless workers rights laws.

  • Roy Montgomery

    You are assuming a lot hat is not in the article. I am in Nigeria Africa now working and I have worked and vacationed overseas in various countries for 15 years now. The company I work for ALWAYS takes and holds it’s employees passports (even mine) for several reasons. To renew, visas on time and work permits and for safe keeping so they are not lost of stolen. It is a common practice in foreign countries. As for the wages you quote, there is nothing in the article about the type of contract or what they agreed to. Under your example waitresses in the US could be slaves as well. Here in Nigeria right now the poverty level is $1.20 a day. Over that you are NOT considered to be living in poverty. The company I work for is a Nigerian company and they pay Nigerian cook, cleaning and laundry staff $150.00 a month with no house, no phone, no electric, no computer, no TV, no pool, no spa and the closest store is 35 miles from here. They work from 5Am to 7PM or 14 hours a day and are on call 24 hours a day. They are considered well off and in the privileged class due to their employment. An employment contract can take a lot of things into consideration as wages or compensation. I get a free house, cook, cleaner and laundry person, car and driver, 24 HR electricity (by generator) and 3 meals a day. I get a round trip plane ticket to the US and back once a year. That is all furnished by the company and considered as part of my compensation package and is taken into account when my wages are figured. PLEASE do some research and find out what the going rate for a LIVE IN house keeper with benefits is paid in the US. I am sure it will surprise you.,-CA.html

    In 2011, the average salary of a housekeeper was $21,440 a year. But
    higher salaries can sometimes skew average income. For this reason,
    median wage is often used to predict earnings. According to the Bureau
    of Labor Statistics, the median wage — or midpoint salary — for this
    occupation was $19,390 a year, meaning that half of all housekeepers
    earn this amount or less annually. Unlike your “average” maid, employers provide live-in housekeepers more
    than just better pay. Most — if not all — cover the cost of both room
    and board, and may go so far as to pay for a cellphone, internet, cable
    and health insurance. It’s also not uncommon for a live-in housekeeper
    to be given a car while on staff.

    I understand, they tend to gloss over the more crazy parts for you.

    Deuteronomy 17

    King James Version (KJV)

    17 Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the Lord thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto the Lord thy God.

    2 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the Lord thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the Lord thy God, in transgressing his covenant,

    3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

    4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:

    5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

  • James Grant

    Well all those passages sound vanilla compared to this funny how you missed it.

    Deuteronomy 17

    King James Version (KJV)

    17 Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the Lord thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto the Lord thy God.

    2 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the Lord thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the Lord thy God, in transgressing his covenant,

    3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

    4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:

    5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

    Actually that is a false statement. It says to love your enemy as yourself. I’ve also read the Quran. It states not to make war with anyone who hasn’t made war with you first. They always draw first blood. It also says not do “do business with an Infidel”, so tell me, what does OPEC do?

  • terlet

    How would you notice? You’re obviously not using your mind.

  • Havoc

    No. You can quote from the Old Testament all you want without context to the New Testament to spin your religious inaccuracies. But, when the truth is spoken you cannot refute it for the truth will rebuke your lies.

    The truth is as such: When the Son of Man, Jesus Christ, died upon the cross the laws in the Old Testament were put aside. The new Gospel is law. The word of Christ, who is God in human form upon this earth and in Heaven, supersedes that of the old. No where in the New Testament will you find such vileness for now NO SIN is to great, and by the blood of the Lamb we are forgiven; Past, present, and future. Such is the Grace of God. And the duty of a Christian is to LEAD non-believers to salvation through Christ.

    Now that you have been taken to Sunday school, lets look at some more facts and real life situations.
    Today there is ONLY ONE RELIGION that KILLS non-believers on a global scale. There is ONLY ONE RELIGION that kills those of different denominations within it’s own religion. That religion is Islam. Examples: Kenya, Kurds and Sunnis, Syrians, Iraqi vs Iranians, Muslim Brotherhood vs any non-Sharia Law Arab country.

    You may make an example of ONE or TWO INDIVIDUALS within Christianity that pervert the Word to their own will but those that I mentioned above are whole sections of a religion made up of 1000’s and 100’s of 1,000’s of people that believe wholeheartedly in radical Islam. Far from a religion of peace.

    I’ll tell you of peace, happened today as I watched my friend, a Baptist talk with Jehovah Witnesses at her front door. It was a peaceful conversation about differences within religion where both parties turned and walked away. Put that in an Islamic country and you will see murder (see churches burned and Christians slaughtered by Islamic fundamentalist.

    So yes, Islam today is just as evil as it was 1,000’s of years ago, unlike Christianity that has moved from that wickedness.

And just because you are poor does not mean you are better been a slave and eating better, come on. A slave who is a slave at heart will find abuse normal.

It is NOT in the article. It must be made up in your mind.

  • trip

    There was an earlier story that said the maid was allowed to walk free whenever she wanted. It does not sound like slavery. She was free to speak to the police and the victim had changed her stories a few times which was why the evidence did not add up. In you Fucknuts cannot see how sensationalized this article is by a website called “freepatriot” then…

  • Roy Montgomery

    I am just being realistic and passing on my real world experiences not cry baby whining where it is not warranted. I have spent 15 years overseas and I am overseas now.

    It is stupid statements like that, that takes all credibility away from you. Reminds me of the saying.

    It is COMMON in Europe to have to turn in your passport when you check in to a hotel & the local police hold it until you leave. The employment laws here were broken [despite what the California judge says] but the rest of the world DOES do things differently.

  • Sofia Suarez

    Holding someone’s passport, which is an identity document in several countries is illegal… It is after all your identification. To hold it, unless you kindly asked them to keep it safe for you, should be illegal world wide, is just a way to control people. If because you have it bad in your home country and you decide to move abroad, doesn’t allow other people to abuse that. Conversion rates make it impressive to earn 220$ a month? Mayhap, but living with 220$ in the US is not the same as using those 220$, converting them into the local currency and living on that wage.

  • Hellfighter_Mark_Steel

    BUT THIS IS NOT NIGERIA. In this Country, it is NEVER right to do what is being done in this case, NEVER. WE HAVE LAWS that must be followed, just like your laws in Nigeria and these Women are due overtime for any hours past 40 or laws have been broken. To me, this whore should be made to pay these Women what they are due and then put in prison for breaking AMERICAN law. Nigerian law does not mean crap here!!!

  • Roy Montgomery

    I am a 57 year old American Citizen born in 1956 in Arkansas. I am sorry you are wrong. Live in housekeepers can be paid in many ways and are not always or necessarily hourly employees. They can be paid daily, monthly, hourly, salary and there is other compensation for their work other than money. I am a Union member and have been since 1980 and even in the Union overtime is determined by the State where you work. Some States it is over 40 hours some it is over 8 hours a day even if you work only 9 hours one week you still get overtime for 1 hour. Some places you can work 39 hours straight and not qualify for overtime unless you first get 40 hours. There are also contracts that do not pay overtime at all such as in a waitress at a restaurant. There are a lot of factors that determine overtime so your assumption is not true. The fact that you want to also label the employer a whore is also detrimental to your character and does not make your argument any stronger. When you learn to take emotion out of the equation and judge it by it’s merits not on emotion you will be better off. Judges have to go by the law and not make decisions based on emotion. My entire point is that these women were given a cell phone, Facebook, internet and paid shopping sprees at the mall. Saying she escaped and had to flag down a bus is not consistent with these reports. I promise you there is more to this story than we are being told. As is always the case we get only one of the three sides. The three sides being Your side, my side and the TRUTH. As an American I tend to give the benefit of the doubt to the accused, especially since she was NOT proven guilty and was released by the judge. I do not understand how you can be held captive as a slave and have a cell phone, internet access and Facebook and unsupervised shopping days at the local mall. How easy would it be to alert the authorities anytime they wanted under these conditions. I promise you I can send you a thousand women from the Philippians and Kenya that would beg to be (a slave) under these conditions in the US rather than the way they are living and treated in their home country.

  • Roy Montgomery

    Please give me a list of the countries where it is illegal. i have worked and lived overseas for 15 years, in Algeria, Indonesia, Nigeria, the UK, London, France and Amsterdam and everyone of my companies has held my passport in every country I have worked in. They do this so that they can renew your work visa and your residence permit (they have to have your passport to do this) and for safe keeping. Most places they give you a color photo copy of your main id page and your visa page to carry with you which is all the id you need. I have never been in a country where it is illegal and I have never heard of it being illegal. Please back up your statement with fact and educate me on the places where it is illegal.

  • Roy Montgomery

    There is a law in the US that says any company that employes an American citizen overseas must safely return that citizen at anytime as requested by the citizen to the US even if you die they are legally required to return your remains. If your do not have your passport as an American citizen all you have to do is go to ANY US Embassy or American Consultant and they will verify your identity protect you and take steps to correct any wrongs that have been done to you. I would think every foreign Embassy in the US would provide the same protection for their citizens in the US although I have no proof of that. That is just my feeling and the right thing to do. As an American Citizen you can also register with the US Embassy in the country where you are and they will keep in touch with you and check on you and contact you about any safety concerns or other information a US citizen would need while in country. You are not required to register it is at your option to do so if you choose.

    There is nothing in the Bible that says the Old Testament laws were “put aside”. However, even if that was the case, it still wouldn’t change the fact that your religion was just as harmful and terrifying as Islam is today.

    Did you read where she “sometimes lets them go to a strip mall alone”? Sometimes? That doesn’t sound like they are willing participants and certainly not at 200 a month. IDC what country your from, slavery is not legal in the US and the courts should be ashamed of themselves.

  • teddy6139

    Thing is, this is not Nigeria or Saudi. If you live in America, you live under American law. Minimum wage in CA is 10.50 an hour. Not to mention, no one here works 16 hours a day 7 days a week. And I’m pretty sure that if the Kenyan woman said she didn’t agree to be there, then she knows whether or not she’s supposed to be there or whether or not she’s being held against her will. And no, waitresses make their 2.60 an hour because they make daily cash money. I’d say, as an ex waitress, they make more than your average income. No excuse. The woman should be prosecuted or sent back to Saudi. And all the passports should go back to their owners.

  • Phillip Keenan

  • Roy Montgomery

    If you are getting room and board, free meals, free TV, free cell phone, paid shopping trips to the mall, swimming pool, spa and 220 a month, I can point you to thousands of Americans who are not getting that. I know people personally who do not get that. There are homeless right here in America way worse off that would jump at a deal like that. By the way that is how the rich get rich. They pay only what they have to pay. Why do you think so many Americans hire illegals here in America. The average Kenyan earns about $1,800 a year and that is average not low and for men as well not just women. About 79 per cent of Kenya’s population lives in rural areas and relies
    on agriculture for most of its income. Nearly half the country’s 40
    million people are poor, or unable to meet their daily nutritional
    requirements. The vast majority of poor people live in rural areas.
    Although in some respects conditions have improved since the early
    1980s, the poverty rate has remained steady at about 48 per cent. Rural women are a particularly vulnerable category because they do not
    have equal access to social and economic assets. Subsistence farming is
    the primary – and often the only – source of livelihood for about 70 per
    cent of these women.

    More than one billion people in the world live on less than US$1 a day
    2.7 billion struggle to survive on less than US$2 per day
    More than 800 million people go to bed hungry every day, including 300 million children
    Every 3.6 seconds a person dies of starvation, and most of those who die are children under age of 5.

  • Roy Montgomery

    Sometimes that is correct, did you also see that these SOMETIMES trips were paid for and 100 free shopping. Wonder why they did not ESCAPE AND FLAG DOWN A BUSS FROM THE MALL while they were enjoying free shopping. I wonder what FACTS the Judge knows that we do not. HERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN REALLY GET UPSET ABOUT. IF YOU REALLY CARE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!!!

    More than one billion people in the world live on less than US$1 a day
    2.7 billion struggle to survive on less than US$2 per day

    I just got my passport for the first time ever in my life and I was told straight up….” DO NOT GIVE YOUR PASSPORT TO ANYONY”, so I asked if my empoyer needed it and wanted it? I was told “They can see it and write down your dates or request when it needs to be renewed but it is YOUR JOB to make sure it does not expire not someone eles. Where the hell is everyone getting off on my JOB takes my passport from me so I do not loose it and make sure it doesnt expire? What the hell are you people 2 years old? Need mommy to wipe your ASSES to…. I call BS on this Princess and it is a control issue with holding passports no different than trafficing humans. they do the same thing and once again blinders are on because who they are and the fact the US cant touch them. That is the bottom lineI

  • Kathleen Casey

    I was a waitress for the last 18 years and you do get paid overtime if you work over 40 hours! I don’t know where you are getting your facts from but they are wrong. It is illegal in any state in the US to work over 40 hours as an hourly employee and not get paid overtime!

  • Roy Montgomery

    As an hourly employee you are correct. Show me where it says in the article that they were hourly employees and had an hourly contract not a salary contract. If they were paid monthly it had to be a salary contract NOT an hourly contract. Which is completely legal in the US. I pay my house keeper by the day and it is not based on hours work. If it takes her 2 hours or 10 hours she makes the same amount.

    Not surprising. Obama believes in slavery as he is enslaving the American People and now taking over their healthcare decisions and their money as he purposely spends America into oblivion. He is a muslim and we are a Christian Nation, so he must feel justified in imposing his will on us.

    I have read several comments…and this has not been mentioned yet……When a servant is selected, she/he is often very young….even possibly a child….and is usually UNEDUCATED as to the ways of the world and legal systems.

  • Roy Montgomery

    This is OLD Testament and Moses was talking here not God. When Jesus died on the cross the old testament teachings were done away with and so were the old testament practices of faith healing, blood sacrifices, speaking in tongues, the gifts of the Holy Spirit and in the New Testament after Jesus there is a completely new teaching consisting of love and forgiveness and patience and turning the other cheek and loving your enemies. The Muslims do not believe Jesus was the son of God so they are still looking for the son of God to walk on earth. Thus they are still living by the old Testament and not the new. Your argument does not hold true for Christians who believe Jesus was the son of God. Only Muslims who do not.

  • Roy Montgomery

    Yes actually there is.

    1 Corinthians 13

    King James Version (KJV)

    13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

    2 And
    though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and
    all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove
    mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

    3 And
    though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my
    body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

    4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

    5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

    6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

    7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

    8 Charity
    never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
    whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge,
    it shall vanish away.

    9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

    10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

    11 When
    I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought
    as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

    12 For
    now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know
    in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

    13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

    Of course she would be left off the hook… after all our president is a Muslim and he bowed down to the Saudi prince so low he almost kissed his shoes… now why wouldn’t Obama allow this criminal Saudi princess to be free and to keep her slaves after all both sides of his family know exactly how lucrative slavery is, look in their history…

  • Susan Kohler

    No, the Bible does not call for the killing of anyone who does not accept God. there were religious zealots who killed non-Christians in the middle ages, mainly under the banner of the Catholic Church, which is certainly not all of Christianity. We’ve come to accept that the way to reach people is to show them God’s love and leave the choice up to them. Christianity is no where near the evil of Islam.
    Oh and my Bible says, clearly, Thou shalt not kill. You’re rude and you are wrong.

  • Susan Kohler

    And Jesus said “Let those among you without sin cast the first stone” He also said “I give you a new law, to love one another as yourself”

  • Susan Kohler

    You are wrong, although I will admit that there were dark periods in church history, far more Christians were persecuted then the persecutors, up to this day. They died affirming their belief in God and Jesus. The way things are today many of us may face that choice. As a whole, Christians believe in peace but we are not perfect. We try and always fall short, but we do try. Your attacks on Christians do not surprise me, as renewed persecution of Christians was foretold. Please note: I am talking about real Christians, not just church members, and there is a difference. I pray for you,

  • Dane Gunderson

    so ‘found’ 4 women… obviously illegal aliens… yet no charges.

  • Susan Kohler

    First, Christianity has gone through dark periods, but real Christians do not believe in killing non-believers, and before you bring up Nazis, they were not really Christians, Also, Christians have been persecuted for centuries, and still pray for our enemies. The sheer number of atrocities committed in the name of Islam is astonishing, Christians aren’t perfect but we’ve never come close to their level of evil. And yes, as an American, and as a Christian, with freedom of speech and freedom of religion, I DO have the right, even the obligation, to judge them. I have the absolute right to state my opinion. What I do not have the right to do is hate them and surprise, I don’t! I hate Islam, I hate the violence, but I pray for the souls of the people involved.

  •!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

    The lawyer isn’t getting it. NO lawyer who goes “against” the slaves in our nation is really getting it.
    You can have all the “comforts” of life and STILL be a captive. Ask any person in a federal prison, they have all these things including smuggled in phones – hello!
    I WAS a captive for over 25 years – not of a Saudi Prince’s wife but by an American monster born and raised right here in the US.
    Many people are captives in their homes – abused, threatened, given little autonomy while the other person rolls over every single person they find in their paths to get to where they deem their rightful position to be.
    How did our laws get so corrupted and so ridiculously backwards in SO many cases and in so many AREAS?
    If one is a prisoner of abuse – *slavery is a given *- one has little to no choices because there are those who can and do make prisoners of the mind, not just walls and shackles can make one a prisoner!
    Threats against one’s children, backed up with physical abuse, can make ANYONE ,after a time, a prisoner if one doesn’t know the difference and if one has lived this way from the beginning of memory to whenever one wakes up and realizes that this behavior isn’t normal – IF one wakes up, many, sadly, do not.
    I started waking up at 47.

  •!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

    These same tactics are happening in homes around our nation and they don’t call them slaves.
    We grow up, sexually abused, thrown away, destroyed by doctors who ignore abuse after abuse, and yet our nation cries out over this.
    I was 9 when I was raped and the rapes didn’t stop even after I was “married” at 16. but I was touched from the time I was 5!!!
    Many are indoctrinated to believe they don’t matter, they have no voice and they can’t do any better than where they are. And because of the way some are “raised” there are people on both sides of this issue, the abusers and those who are so heinously abused, who don’t talk about it, who perpetrated those same abuses they suffered to the next generation and the next.
    Now at what should be some of the most productive years of my life, I am fighting for my life.
    My is body torn to pieces by ignorant doctors who ignored my lupus, botched surgeries (!), doctors who will not do a PHYSICAL EXAMINATION but will whip out the prescription pad faster than a gunslinger at high noon.
    Our nation is filled with “laws” that do nothing if they are not enforced.
    Our nation’s laws are corrupted and need a reset to Constitution-tested laws. One single proof is California’s NEED to pass a law a Constitutional amendment makes illegal NATIONALLY.
    Yet another is the blatant ignorance of the federal government to protect our borders.
    How many layers of laws will it take to make us realize that the laws are there to protect but so many of them are not being enforced that they layers are smothering the processes?
    It’s time for mature people who walk upright before God to take back our nation, stop all levels of abuse, teach our children NOT to harm one another, and go back to basics of GOD, family, community.
    When was the last time you SAW your SENATOR in a town meeting and asked BOTH of them what is going on in DC??? Yeah, thought not.

  • Jen Grim

    Don’t know why everyone is so shocked. Slavery is still very much alive and well, and in the U.S. Take a look at the underground sex slave market. Take a look at who makes your Nike shoes and major label clothing. Take a look at where your engagement ring diamonds come from. Religious remarks have no weight on the issue because slavery has always existed in the major ones. Wake up people. All people wanna do is yap about their beliefs instead of actually doing something to fix the issues.



  • Shaoqing Chen

    I don’t understand. Why is confiscating passport is not regarded as human rights violation? It should be if you cannot get it back when you want. Simply saying many people in the world are worse than that doesn’t help. Taking advantage of other people’s poverty is not the right thing to do,certainly not legal in many cases. If a contract limit someone’s certain human rights it is void and should be nullified, no matter how much money the participant party gets. We are not talking about how bad the world actually is. We are talking about if it is illegal or not. By simply assuming everything is legal you are just being ignorant and prejudiced like the other side, and, if I may say, ignoring your own people’s well being. Historically speaking, the slaves in the u.s. were much better off than free African tribesmen, sometimes even better than the lower class Europeans. That didn’t justify slavery at all. It is same in this case.

  • Roy Montgomery

    Are you not being just as ignorant and prejudiced by assuming the things that you are assuming. I work overseas. Ask your self this. How did these women (slaves) get to America in the first place, who paid for the trip, what did they agree to and accept up front to get to America, how long had they been in America and working for this lady, what is their education level, what was their status before taking this job. I have to sign a 12 month contract for a set salary, (regardless of hours worked) in order to get my job and the plane ticket and room and board that is part of my contract. It clearly states in my contract that I have to stay 3 months and cannot leave. All I am saying is that everyone immediately ASSUMED the worse and took sides AGAINST the Saudi woman do to this report and I am sure there is more to it than this. You do not get people to America, give them a phone, paid for shopping trips to the mall, Internet and Facebook, TV in their own language, swimming pool, spa etc then pay them twice what they would make in their own country and then treat them like slaves. All I am saying is that there is ALWAYS 3 sides to every story. In this case The Saudi woman’s side, the other woman’s side and the truth. I for one do not see enough in this article to make me want to stone the woman who a US judge found NOT GUILTY and released. I DO NOT believe for 1 minute that the US judge was intimidated, scared or bought odd my the Saudis. I think this story is very one sided and there is a lot not being told that should be told.

    There should be common ways to negotiate whether or not it was “slavery”. The fact that she kept them – is one to suggest “slavery”. Another should be if the person or persons have a way higher than normal or way lower than normal BMI and fat percentage. Nutritional standards need to be met. If not, they could claim slavery on the basis of poor nutrition. Oddly enough and this is interesting they never stated what the 16 hour days are like – whether they are strenuous, whether everyone is used in forced labor means or if its a casual setting. I would love to get into this with additional information. I BELIEVE THIS TO BE SLAVERY because some or most of them did and we were not there to judge the difference.

  • Chad

    actually Roy, get your facts straight:

    [FLSA (federal labor standards act) The Act establishes standards for minimum wages, overtime pay, record-keeping, and child labor.

    In addition, the Act covers domestic service workers, such as day workers,
    housekeepers, chauffeurs, cooks, or full‑time babysitters, if
    they work a total of more than eight hours a week for one or more employers.

    this is the FEDERAL LAW, covers ALL STATES it is NOT varied, states may increase above this law or create a sub statute for private commercial contractors etc.. but the Federal law remains, 40 hour work week and a minimum wage. over 40 hours in a single 7 day period is considered overtime etc.

    so they are hired overseas brought here to the US, by what company? this is an individual so far as it is stated in the article, not a corporation and hiring foreign nationals to work in the US requires a permit or work visa of some type apparently there’s no mention of these women being issued that either?

    I am more inclined to believe the Kenyan women then the Saudi princess,
    aristocrats tend to be elitist, and think they are above the law, I would like to see this fully investigated and not covered up or swept under the rug.

    Then your comment shows me you have no clue about or care to know how things work. Do you really think that the rest of the world has no affect on the US and what happens here. Your lack of knowledge, desire or information on the rest of the world only makes you weak and inferior to those who you do not know or understand. The rest of the world is right here in the US my friend and more are coming everyday by the thousands.

    Being foreign nationals living in the US, does not preclude following US Labor Relations.

That is a part of our society too.

  • love everyone

    Roy sounds guilty of enslaving the underprivileged to work for meager wages.

  • Susan Kohler

    No, not Fox news, from his own mouth. I saw him say it, in aa video interview “My muslim faith” Plus the ring he wears is a muslim symbol, common for muslim men to wear, the inscription, close up reads “there is no God but allah” is the translation I read. I’ll admit, I don’t read the language myself. He calls the morning muslim call to prayer the most beautiful sound in the world.Agaib, on video, He’s named November National muslim month, Where is the month for Jews, Christians, Wiccans? We need a month to celebrate the people who took down the twin towers? Benghazi? Who have committed over 21,000 woeldwide terror attacks since 9/11/01? He recently gave a long speech, that I listened to, about the muslims building America.
    None of the above has anything to do with Fox. Now the muslim brotherhood part is from several sources, one of which is Fox, but there are others. His family on his father’s side are all muslim, his brother is muslim brotherhood. Oh, and not liking muslims is not racism because “muslim” is not a race. It’s a religion. Duh!

    And yes, I’m a Islamophobia, guess who gave it to me? The men who planned and carried out 9/11/01, Benghazi, who posted videos of themselves beheading Christians on youtube, and torturing Christians in a shopping mall in Kenya, and many more. And the “good muslims”? They let it happen,

    Oh, and you can take your caps off, using them like that is just plain rude, and makes you seem stupid, as does your false assumption that I get all my information from Fox news, although Fox is certainly less biased than NBC, ABC, etc.I put most of my faith in things I can see for myself.

  • Roy Montgomery

  • Rob Mas

    You never hear of many revolts during American slavery, because the first stage is to break their spirit and willpower. The slave will come to rely on they master and even justify beatings as their own fault. There is a term for it, it’s called munchausen syndrome.

  • Roy Montgomery

    You should really do some research on American slavery. You are correct in what you say but that is just a very small part of the story. Only about 6% of Americans ever even owned slaves and they were bought and paid for from the families of the slaves in Africa. I am in Nigeria Africa this very minute and it is still going on. Poor families are selling their kids. Slavery and buying and selling kids is not a good thing but it is part of the economic make up and until we address the real problem (POVERTY) we cannot hope to tackle the slave trade. I have personally been approached by Nigerians who wanted to sell me their kid or kids, just because I am seen as a wealthy white man in this country. Africans are being sold to wealthy people of other countries everyday even today. There are reports of boat loads of them being rescued during transport out. It is a sad thing.

  • Rob Mas

    That isn’t in contention. I know that people were sold from Africa. What I’m talking about is the psychological effect of slavery and how the acceptance of ones slavery is a mental cage. So when slaves are allowed to roam freely, they return to their masters faithfully.

  • Scheidde Rogers

    WOW ! Only in California…

  • Roy Montgomery

    That worked in early America due to economic and geographical limitations as well. Case in point is that after the Civil War and the slaves were given their freedom many of them returned to the plantation because they could not survive otherwise. I am not so sure that is the case today. With the urban sprawl and the churches, the soup kitchens, women’s groups and the people looking to get involved, the INS and Police especially in CA today there would be no reason to return. There are reports of earlier times when these women complained to authorities about things they did not like. I figure they were mistreated and bullied by the Saudi woman until they got enough and due to the earlier failures by the system to give them the help they were seeking they used this tactic to get the attention they got and the help they needed. I may be wrong but I feel these women willingly accepted these jobs then got fed up with the conditions and exaggerated the situation to their benefit to get the attention and help they were seeking. I do not think for one minute that the judge was paid or bought off. But this is just my opinion. Keep in mind there are always 3 sides to every story. Your side, my side and the TRUTH. I do not think we are getting the whole story here. One reason for my opinion is based on my own experience. I dated a woman for 3 years. After we quit dating her brother who is 100% disabled, married with 3 kids got kicked out of his apartment and was homeless when his wife lost her job. I loaned him $500.00 and moved his entire family into my 45′ x 8.6′ foot travel trailer with me until she could find a job and they could get back on their feet. They lived there with me for 5 months and I was feeding them, buying milk and diapers for the baby, furnishing transportation for them and helping in every way that I could afford. The wife offered to cook and do laundry and clean the house to which I readily agreed. The brother would accompany me and help with yard work on the riding mower and spraying weed killer from the Ranger side by side. I took the entire family to the deer camp, where we shot guns at my expense and to the movies, fishing and out to eat once a month all at my expense. After 5 months and the wife was not able to find work and the trailer was very crowded with me in the bedroom the brother and wife on the couch which made out to a bed and the kids on the floor, the situation had deteriorated to where it could not continue. I had spent literally thousands of dollars and he had not paid back one penny of the loan. They decided to move in with her mother (she had a 3 bedroom house and lived alone but hates the brother because she considers him lazy and abusive to the kids. Lazy he was not he just did not have the stamina to work for very long before resting. He was abusive to the kids and would slap them on the head if they moved to slow and he was always calling the stupid and the such). That is why they did not live with her at the start. 3 weeks latter they tried to sue me for wages for both him and her and told the authorities that I kept them prisoner (I live 5 miles from town on 52 acres with no close neighbors) worked them 7 days a week 12 to 16 hours a day and paid them not one penny and refused to drive them to town. The entire matter was dropped and forgotten when the prosecutor made them aware that if they continued their suit with him 100% disabled an on welfare and the government paying for him and his 3 kids he would most likely get back wages from me but would lose his disability and would probably have to pay back benefits he had received the past 5 months while working as he put if FOR ME. So I know first hand that good situations go bad and friends become enemies and lies are told to enhance one side over the other. I would just like to have all the facts in this story before I start throwing stones.

  • John

    I will jump on this band wagon only because Roy seems to know his laws and put’s up a good argument. I am a business owner and as a business owner I have to put up in my shop for all to see the Federal Fair Labor act. It specifically say’s that even if you are on salary and the amount of hours work are not compensated by the amount of the salary , the balance will be paid in over time. In !994 Seattle Fire chief sued the City of Seattle for not paying him over time even though he was on salary, because hours worked exceeded salary compensation. It also mention of course negotiated contracts through bargaining entity’s (I>E Unions ) They are exempt . Even if you and your boss agree to compensation for comp time in lieu of payed over time it must be in writing. My Dad was a union man for over 45 years and I as well was union ,. Never heard of some of things you are talking about, the ph and I had a phone when I worked for various company’s was so I could be contacted by my boss and my boss could contact me as well as other individuals that we worked for , or worked with us he paid for it. I also Know that the PHONE had a built in GPS system so my boss could track where I was at. You are union and you where born in Kansas ? The only time you are to be paid over time is if you are part -time then any thing over 8 hours is time and half this is based on a part-time less then 32 hours a week. , and then anything over 40 hours is is over time and that is based on a 5 day work week. it does not matter what job you have and this country as an individual you have the RIGHT!! to keep your pass port this is not niegera or Kneya or any place else this is America where you have individual rights guaranteed to you by the constitution of the United States , last I checked servitude and slavery where the same , and it according to the 13th Amendment does not allow it.

    and yet my son just got “layed off” from a plumbing job because he filed a complaint about not being paid, neither the wage he is supposed to be getting or for overtime, so now he has no job and no unemployment benefits as it is being investigated as if he caused his own layoff (though his boss said it was because of lack of work – a lie) yes it will likely end up in court.

    Actually Roy, I know people who even avoid certain areas of town, here in Spokane Wa. … because ” I don’t want to know people live like that” No one wants to know that Americans are living 3rd world lives right here in America, no power, no running water, no sewer, no house even. often older or disabled. I could take people on tours to places where people are living out of vehicles (btw no “officially” homeless) or up in the hills using camp stoves for heat … surviving at best sometimes they don’t. And there is no real help. So that Americans in general, don’t care about anyone in an economic class below them, it is no surprise they don’t give a flying about any other country either.

  • Roy Montgomery

    You should get some facts before you judge and condemn someone who the US judicial system found not guilty. Here is what the US law ays. Read it and weep.

    Employer-Furnished Facilities
    The reasonable cost or fair value of board, lodging, or other
    facilities customarily furnished by the employer for the employee’s
    benefit may be considered part of wages.

    The following are examples of employees exempt from the overtime pay requirements only:

    Certain commissioned employees of retail or service establishments
    Auto, truck, trailer, farm implement, boat, or aircraft salespersons
    employed by non‑manufacturing establishments primarily engaged in
    selling these items to ultimate purchasers Auto, truck, or farm
    implement parts‑clerks and mechanics employed by non-manufacturing
    establishments primarily engaged in selling these items to ultimate
    Railroad and air carrier employees, taxi drivers,
    certain employees of motor carriers, seamen on American vessels, and
    local delivery employees paid on approved trip rate plans
    Announcers, news editors, and chief engineers of certain non‑metropolitan broadcasting stations

    Domestic service workers who reside in their employers’ residences

    Employees of motion picture theaters

    So according to US law, room and board, swimming pool, spa, TV, cell phone and paid shopping trips are considered wages and Domestic service workers who reside in their employers’ residences do not qualify for overtime pay. No wonder the Saudi was found NOT GUILTY and released.

    Nice I have used the 3 sides of a story for years :)

  • Rusty

    but we have no idea if this is the case here … many illegals brought into the US and American citizens too are forced into the “sex trade” by the means you mention means. So yes it happens but was that the case ?? We really never get any News any more and never the correct unslanted full story or even a place to really find all the information we would need to do anything but guess work. Facts elude news

  • Roy Montgomery

    I fully understand and that is why we are suffering the decline in morals and economically and so many people are being killed daily. No one gives a flying about any one else from the White House all the way down to the gutter. It is a shame.

  • Rusty

    Actually it say (KJV)


    17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

    18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    -Matthew 5:17-19

  • teddy6139

    Something tells me you were a slave owner in a past life or something. Just because YOU call it legal doesn’t make it right. If the woman said she was being held against her will, then she was. Slavery is slavery no matter how you dress it up. I can’t even believe that THIS is where you want to hold an argument. Don’t tell me to do research before I say anything. I eat sleep and breathe this stuff. Your morals and ideals, certainly on this subject, does not interest me a bit because it sounds a bit dehumanizing to me. And I believe fully that people like you, ARE the problem.

  • Roy Montgomery

    I am not the one that called it legal. The US Judge called it legal. I sent you the law. Employer-Furnished Facilities
    The reasonable cost or fair value of board, lodging, or other
    facilities customarily furnished by the employer for the employee’s
    benefit may be considered part of wages.The following are examples of employees exempt from the overtime pay requirements only: Domestic service workers who reside in their employers’ residences. looks like the judge saw it this way and ruled accordingly. If this was true If the woman said she was being held against her will, then she was, there would be no need for a judicial system. We just take everyone’s word for it and punish the people they want punished. You know dams well that will not work. There are always 3 sides to every story. Your side, my side and the truth. The judge has ruled. GET GET OVER IT.

  • teddy6139

    LMAO I can tell you’re a very unstable person who should prolly not get himself in an uproar. Yelling at me (or writing in caps) Doesn’t make you any more credible. You’re ridiculously funny. You talk about morals and values and then come off with this craziness. LMAO

  • terje


    >> The company I work for ALWAYS takes and holds it’s employees passports
    >> It is a common practice in foreign countries

    Having worked in a number of coutries I can assure you that this is not the case. It is not common for companies to require they hold your passport, and in most civilized countries it is illegal.

  • Roy Montgomery

    I can assure you that is the case and has been the case for the last 15 years. I am in Nigeria this very minute. The company holds the passport in their safe so that they have it to get the required work visa and residence permit when they are due and so that they are not lost or stolen. I have a copy of my id page and my visa page in my possession not my passport. I do not know if it required or not. They asked for it and I gave to them. It is not a problem and it is a convince for the company. I see no problem with it and I have no problem with it. I use the laminated photo copy and it is accepted as id everywhere I need it and it has never been a problem so far in 15 years.

  • Roy Montgomery

    If you think I am unstable you do not know shit. It is not craziness, IT IS THE LAW IN THE US and the very reason the Saudi was found not guilty and let know. It matters not if you like it or don’t. That does not change the law or the facts. GET OVER YOURSELF.

  • ProquciProdesse

    Then more fool you…NEVER GIVE UP YOUR PASSPORT… If the company needs it to renew your visa, then provide a copy, or, the original and get it back the same day.. I am English and work abroad and would never ever in a million yrs hand over my passport for someone else to keep safe.. lol… That is just ludicrous.

  • mdhawthorne

    Another case of money talks, bullshit walks. The District Attorney’s statement was pathetic.

  • teddy6139

    LMAO Still sounding unstable Roy. And you’re siting labor law. The woman said she was there against her will and they wouldn’t give her back her passport. She was NOT found not guilty, the charges were dropped. HUGE difference Mr Lawman. Go get some anger management and stop cussing people you don’t even know.

  • teddy6139

    You can’t keep someone’s passport from them. We have a Constitutional right to travel. If she asked for her passport back and they didn’t give it to her, they broke the law. LMAO But you’re very entertaining.

  • teddy6139

    Very well said Melissa. Don’t pay attention to Roy. He has issues.

  • Joy Beum

    I’m glad this keeps being posted. It reminds me of what we’re fighting and why. This is the immorality of the muslims. Human beings are expendable.

  • John Kimzey

    I’ll say it plain and simple, The Saudi’s are NOT an ally, they are the enemy of our nation, and as such, I find their presence here, supported by the Government’s ‘free pass’ to be an offence against our nation. And I would LOVE to see this woman and her husband tarred and feathered and fed pork on the boat ride back to the Middle East.

  • Melissa Katsmom Votano

    I think maybe he tuckered himself out.

  • Marine101

    Mr. Montgomery… I am sorry but you’re on a site that has the notion that “If it ain’t American, it’s flawed.” What you say is true and there is more to this story than what was posted, but sadly these people don’t care to question. My dad is Nigerian and because of that I get what you are saying and know that is the common practice. Most people are happy to even have a job in Nigeria and getting a chance to work in the United States is a dream for many Nigerians and others in poverty ridden countries. You’re kicking a dead horse with this one and some of these people failed reading and comprehension since they failed to read the part where the Princess’s charges were dropped. For many, this is an opportunity of a lifetime… it’s funny since American media pretty much salivates at anything that has to do with Will and Kate or the British Royal Family. Just goes to show that anything remotely different is offensive. You are on a conservative page, most are hicks and back wood in-breads. Just watch Wrong Turn and you’ll get where I’m coming from.

  • Roy Montgomery

    Show me in the post where she asked for it back. If you keep anything from the person it belongs to you are breaking the law, not just a passport. Damn you would have thought the judge would have known that. I am sure since people never lie or twist the truth to their benefit I am sure the judge was a rookie or he was bought off. You should really start living in the real word and stop ass u me ing things that are not mentioned in the article. I trust the US judicial system and I thing they do a pretty good job. If you do not and you choose not to abide by their decisions you can always move to another country where things are better.

  • Roy Montgomery

    NO there is no where in the article that said they would not give her passport back. And if she had a passport and a visa I wonder how she got there against her will. Why do Judges dismiss cases BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO GET A CONVICTION. But wait there was the woman who escaped and flagged down the bus after her unescorted paid shopping trip to the mall and 4 more in the house other than her. Yet the judge did not have enough to get a conviction. That judge and prosecutor are either idiots or we are not getting the whole story here. Only one side of the story and not all the facts. Damn when was the last time the media only reported one side of the story and chose sides rather than doing the right thing and reporting the facts. And this happens in America. Damn who would have thought it. I wonder how it was concluded that the woman probably thought she was victim but legally she was not so it was a misunderstanding because of bad communication. I guess the judge was paid off. There is no way that a Saudi princess could not be mistreating these women. After all she is from Saudi and we Americans just got no use for Saudi royalty. Man where is this country headed.

  • Roy Montgomery

    If I did not trust my company with my passport I DAMN sure would not continue to work for them.

  • teddy6139

    LOL No, looks like my (comments) box is full of Roy. (rollingeyes)

  • teddy6139

    LMAO You’re so funny Roy. A complete sheep idiot, but funny nonetheless.

  • teddy6139

    I have no idea what your point is above Roy. Are you ass uming that she had the opportunity to go to the embassy?? Well, she went to the police instead. And she got screwed. This conversation is absolutely useless as you’re making arguments for the sake of argument. I’m done. You’re hopeless. I’m guessing you miss the days of slavery and are trying to find some loop that you can reinstate for your benefit. That’s how I see it.

  • teddy6139

    Uhm, she was being held against her will. I’m thinking it wasn’t voluntarily handed over to her masters. lmao You’re a tool.

  • teddy6139

    TY Terje. IDK why he’s just spreading lies. I think he’s a closet wannabe slave owner myself.

  • teddy6139

    Hahahhaha, that’s what I said. Look, he’s getting angry cuz he’s BUSTED!!!

  • Roy Montgomery

    Hoe do you hold someone against their will and drop them off at the Mall alone on a paid shopping trip.

  • Roy Montgomery

    You are done because you cannot prove your point and neither could the prosecutor. She had a cell phone, internet access and was dropped off at the mall alone on paid shopping trips. There are police at the mall, the Embassy has a phone and an internet site and e-mail. She could have contacted them at anytime. Plus how did she get a passport and visa to come to America AGAINST HER WILL. She stayed there and enjoyed the perks until she was ready to leave then staged a scene to get free transportation back to her country just like the Mexicans do in the US every picking season. You are so gullible.

  • Roy Montgomery

    Yep me and the judge too.

  • ActinUpinTexas

    If the Kenyan were to sneak over the Mexican border she would be FREE… free to get an education, healthcare, food etc…. “SLAVES” conditions of Islam, sharia law usurps constitutional law? Ho, hum! Not important, move along….move along. Woman’s liber’s will fight for the Kenyan to seek an abortion though.

    It’s called Human Trafficking and it is illegal, princess or no princess! The United States badgers (bribes) other countries not to be involved in Human Trafficking and aids them to fight the crime so why is Saudi Arabia getting a free pass. Oh wait…they are MUSLIMS so they can do no wrong!

  • teddy6139

    Hoe? What are you 12?

  • Roy Montgomery

    Check your key board. Where is your E and W. You are the only one that is perfect here. I am not perfect. You did not answer my question. How do you hold someone against their will and drop them off at the Mall alone on a paid shopping trips.

  • Melissa Katsmom Votano

    I’m guessing you weren’t the right class of criminal. My brother-in-law is in Hunstville at the Walls unit and he receives his letters via email……..

  • teddy6139

    OMG, The article didn’t say she HAD been dropped off to go shopping alone. It said that was the claim made by the slaveowner’s attorney. That they had been in the past, allowed to go shopping alone. Read in its entirety Roy. And I never said I was perfect…….you did.

  • Roy Montgomery

    It WAS said IN THE ARTICLE, that the defense attorney made a statement saying they were often dropped off to shop alone paid for by the Saudi woman (which according to US law can be considered as wages. It does not say it was false or misleading or even contested in any way. I can only assume that it was true. You were the one that asked me was I 12 because of a typing error. Kind of childish in it’s own right. I never said HAD either. I asked How do you hold someone against their will and drop them off at the Mall alone on a paid shopping trips. They were often dropped off to shop alone but the article said she escaped from the apartment and flagged down a bus. It makes no sense. It would have been a lot easier to escape from the mall during an unescorted ALONE shopping trip don’t you think. She could have just walked up to a police officer or anyone in the mall. That seems pretty simple to me if she was needing to escape. My question is why did the judge think it was a misunderstanding. What does he know that we do not know that makes him think that. We are only getting one side of the story from bias reporting. Here is more on the story.

  • Simon Says

    Maybe I should make her my slave and see how she likes it, I need a new live-in maid.

  • teddy6139

    So you assume that the slaveowner is telling the truth but not the slave. You’re a piece of work Roy. My point is not that I’M contesting the attorney’s statement. I was merely pointing out that the slaveowner never said that she dropped off her slaves to shop by themselves, the attorney did. lmao You have anger issues. If you’re going to keep this conversation going, like you have been, control your anger. It’s just a conversation that matters very little in the grand scheme of things.

  • Roy Montgomery

    I do not have any anger issues. I assume that the judge and prosecutor did their job and could not find evidence to prosecute the case. Since the Saudi was in the US and subject to US law and there was not enough evidence to prosecute there was no other choice but to drop the case. I do not assume that the Defense Attorney made a false statement and complete lie when addressing the media on record. I assume that the investigation by the prosecutor produced the facts that the defense attorney pointed out in his statement. There is nothing in the article that points to her guilt other than the Kenya woman’s statement. Yet there is the Saudi woman’s statement and the investigation conducted by the prosecutor that could not back p the Kenya woman’s statement that point to her innocence. That is why I presume that justice was served and as per US law she was released. The investigation is ongoing still and if evidence is found I would expect new charges to be filed. That is the American way and if you are ever arrested I hope it works that same way for you and you are not sentenced to prison due to the statement of your accuser with nothing to back it up. Like it or not that is the way the US justice system is designed to work.

  • teddy6139

    Not having enough evidence to prosecute and someone being innocent of the crime are completely different issues. Prosecutors and grand juries choose not to bring a case to court ALL the time. It doesn’t mean they don’t see any wrong doing, they just don’t have enough corroborating evidence to get a conviction. And defense attorneys lie for their clients ALL the time. It’s their job. And the evidence is, a woman running hysterically for help by jumping onto a bus and seemingly, to the bus driver, in fear. And nobody said to put the woman in prison. Just that she should have been prosecuted and let a jury work it out. THAT’S the American way. BTW, better debating with you when you’re not cussing me. I see your side. I don’t agree with your side, but you’re certainly entitled to it.

  • ProquciProdesse

    [LMAO Still sounding unstable Roy. ]

    Have followed the debate between you and Roy.

    Roy was consistently presenting facts and detailed analysis. You seem to be consistently arguing emotional position.

    Based on that, your ad hominem term “unstable” is actually more applicable to you.

    I suggest you invest time in acquiring the skill of logical, reasoned thinking.

  • teddy6139

    LMAO Thanks for that insight. I stand y my argument. And please enter l lighten me to Roy’s facts. Funny you’re the only one on this thread accusing me of being emotional in MY analysis. Good thing your opinion doesn’t matter to me a bit. Lol

  • teddy6139

    My thoughts exactly

  • teddy6139

    Why are you sweatin me freakboy?

  • jandr0

    It is easy to identify fact-based comments from emotion-based responses – ona analyses the constructs (language, phrases, terms) used in the response itself.

    A response that has a preponderance of emotive-value, other-person-labelling / belittling and opinion-expressing terms like “LMAO,” “Funny,” “accusing,” “opinion doesn’t matter,” and “LOL” is emotion-filled.

    Business coaches are trained to pick up such language use. QED. I suggest you now apply those simple guidelines and examples I provided to this comment of yours:

    [LMAO Still sounding unstable Roy. And you’re siting labor law. The woman said she was there against her will and they wouldn’t give her back her passport. She was NOT found not guilty, the charges were dropped. HUGE difference Mr Lawman. Go get some anger management and stop cussing people you don’t even know.]

  • teddy6139

  • jandr0

    You’re kidding me right, teddy6139. Your name is all over this thread with your
    stalking, embarrassment, and complete uselessness in this conversation.

  • jandr0

    I press the button, and the emotion-style reaction keeps on pouring out.

    Like a stuck record.

    “lmao.” “get a life.” “troll.” “LMAO!!!”

    [And you haven’t showed me any fact based replies from Roy, because there was none.]

    Thought you would be able to find them yourself, since fact-based ones are typically the ones that aren’t awash in emotional terms (which are the ones I showed you how to find).

    I suspect you haven’t even tried. So here you go from the other party:

    [The US Judge called it legal.]


    [Employer-Furnished Facilities. The reasonable cost or fair value of board, lodging, or other facilities customarily furnished by the employer for the employee’s benefit may be considered part of wages.]


    And your response:

    “LMAO” “I can tell you’re a very unstable person.”

    In other words: expressing derision and a personal attacks.

    You display all the signs of a bullyboy.

  • teddy6139

    You’re an idiot troll freaking. Get a life. You’re. One of those annoying people who just keeps repeating, I know you are but what am I? Childish asshole.

  • jandr0

    HI there freaking idiot troll teddy. Childish asshole. I see you are still high on the ad hominem remarks, but low on engaging with the facts.

  • teddy6139

    Simply stating something does not make it fact. AND as I said, not having enough evidence to prosecute doesn’t mean a law wasn’t broken. The judge did NOt declare innocence. Not to mention, foreign dignitaries get a lot of leniency. Bully? Who’s following who around simply repeating what has already been stated. Ur a troll. Admit it. LMAO STILL..

  • jandr0

    [Simply stating something does not make it fact.]

    Depends on what you are stating.

    [AND as I said, not having enough evidence to prosecute doesn’t mean a law wasn’t broken.]

    Agreed. But it does state that there is not enough evidence. Therefore innocent since not proven guilty.

    Yet you in the “court of public opinion” are wilfully discarding that underlying fundamental of the philosophy of law.

    And you did it by ignoring the clear regulations pointed out to you as fact. And those are fact, because you yourself can go and read up where they are positively documented.

    Your “court of public OPINION” approach is exactly what the law is protecting us against. Thank heavens for that judge who protects us from you and your emotional mobocracy.

    [Not to mention, foreign dignitaries get a lot of leniency.]

    I will use your own argument against you: “Simply stating something does not make it fact.”

    So yours is merely an unproven, subjective opinion, as opposed to the other party’s facts than can be verified and validated.

    Really, all your responses indicate “you are a troll. Admit it.”
