Dad waterboards 4 year old daughter,for not saying her ABC's.

A crazed G.I. was arrested for waterboarding his 4-
year-old daughter because she wouldn't say her
ABCs.

Cops said Army Sgt. Joshua Tabor, who served
15 months in Iraq, admitted to punishing his
daughter by holding her down on the kitchen
counter in suburban Washington State and
repeatedly pushing her head backward into a full
sink.

"He explained she's deathly afraid of water," said
Todd Stancil, police chief in Yelm, Wash.

"He would lay her down on her back and push her
head into the water right up to her eyeline. He was
open about it. He did it all the time. To him, that was
an acceptable form of punishment - because she
wasn't able to say the alphabet."

Stancil said neighbors told cops that he also ran
water over the flailing girl's face, taking her to the
edge of drowning, but Tabor denied that.

"It was hot! The water was hot!" the girl said,
according to the police report.

"We originally booked him on third-degree assault,
but if he did put the water over her face, that would
constitute a more tortuous type of crime," Stancil
said. "We are looking into those allegations."

Tabor is out on $10,000 bail and restricted to his
base, Ft. Lewis, in Tacoma, Wash.

He was arrested after his girlfriend called the cops
at 2 a.m. to say he was drunkenly stalking around
the neighborhood brandishing his Kevlar helmet
and threatening to break windows.

The girlfriend then told cops Tabor beat his
daughter. Cops found the little girl hiding in the
bathroom.

"She had just multiple bruises all over her body,
from the ears to the legs," Stancil said. "She said,
'Daddy did this.'"

The child had only been in her father's court-
ordered custody for two months.

Holy shit, what a fuckhead. Gee, I wonder why she's deathly afraid of water. Maybe because daddy uses it to torture her like some terrorist when she can't do something like her ABC's... Is he just going to pistol whip her for not being able to tie her shoes? Get this sick fuck in jail seriously

That's nothing. I punched my son in the eye the other day because he wouldn't stop signing "Every kiss begins with Kay's". The fuckers behind those commercials are next.

How do these people know that?

Did they hear that poor child gasping for breath or eyewitness it and do nothing to help her?

What the Hell?

The neighbors probably grabbed him and made him stop, but that's not important to the case.

From what I hear it wasn't the water boarding that most think about.

Bottom line....she said her ABC's...

Everyone wishes parents would discipline their children, yet look what happens when one is finally punished. Make up your minds, people!

Being an eyewitness to this coward bastard putting that little girl through Hell isn't important to the case?

Child 'Waterboarded' By Dad Over Her ABCs

LINK

12:03pm UK, Monday February 08, 2010

Adam Arnold, Sky News Online

A US soldier has been accused of "waterboarding" his four-year-old daughter because she would not recite the alphabet.

Joshua Tabor, 27, allegedly pushed the child's head under water face-up in the kitchen sink at his house.

Tabor told a police officer he and his girlfriend "held her down on the counter and submerged her head into the water three or four times until the water came around her forehead and jawline", according to court documents.

The suspect said that he handed out this punishment to the youngster for "refusing to say her letters".

Tabor, a soldier at the Lewis-McChord base in Tacoma, Washington, has been charged with second-degree assault of a child and is due to appear in court on February 16.

The suspect told police his daughter was afraid of water "and was squirming around trying to get away from the water". The reports said: "Joshua did not act as though he felt there was anything wrong with this form of punishment."

The controversial practice of waterboarding was used by the CIA to break al Qaeda suspects at Guantanamo Bay.

Detainees had water poured over their face until they feared they would drown - but President Barack Obama has since banned the practice.

Police went to Tabor's house in the Tacoma suburb of Yelm after his girlfriend reported he "was irate, intoxicated, and walking around the neighbourhood with his Kevlar helmet threatening to break windows".

She told officers that Tabor beat the child. The youngster's back was reportedly covered in bruises.

The girlfriend also claimed the child had locked herself in a cupboard because she was afraid of her father.

Police Sergeant Rob Carlson confirmed the alleged abuse happened because the little girl would not recite her "ABCs", according to police reports.

Tabor has now been released from jail after posting $10,000 (about 6,400) bail.

He is restricted to the base at Lewis-McChord as a condition of his release and cannot have any contact with his girlfriend or children.

The youngster has been taken into custody by Child Protective Services, a police report said.

The article doesn't say whether the waterboarding worked or not. Did the dad get the info he needed? Maybe a terrorist act was stopped. Typical liberal media bias.

The waterboarding worked. The dad heard what he needed to hear. But he can't tell us what he heard for reasons of national security.

That's what I was thinking. Did he finally get the girl to confess the order of the ABCs?

And like they say, spare the waterboard, spoil the child.

That is one flexible little shit. I don't know about you guys, but when I waterboard my kids, their heads tend to dip, pushing the top into the water while the base (attached to the neck) tends not to go into the water.
