Brooklyn man imprisoned woman, chained and whipped her under ”Sex slave rules’: prosecutors
It wasn’t Islam that made him do this. It wasn’t the Arab culture that made him do this, as many Islamophobes and bigots will argue. Wait, I should have said this early: He wasn’t Muslim. (Hat tip: Saladin)

A Brooklyn man accused of raping a woman he kept as a sex slave had a chilling list of penalties for her – including flogging and chaining her to a radiator – if she disobeyed his rules, prosecutors said Friday.
John Hopkins, 45, pleaded not guilty in Brooklyn court to a litany of charges after prosecutors detailed the graphic “master” and “slave” relationship he had with a 27-year-old Midwestern woman who came to live with him last month.
Hopkins “set up slave rules,” prosecutor Christopher Laline said. “He punished her if she disobeyed.”
