U.S. Soldier Arrested For Waterboarding 4-Year-Old
February 8, 2010
Joshua Tabor, who is a soldier on a base in Tacoma, Washington, admitted that he waterboarded his daughter because he knew she was terrified of water.
He allegedly flew into a rage when she could not completely recite her ABC’s, turning her upsidedown and holding her by the legs as he repeatedly submerged her face under water to make her believe she was drowning.
The police found scratched and bruises on her neck and back, and when asked what happened the little girl replies, “Daddy did it.”
Tabor has also reportedly been seen walking around the neighborhood he lives in with a Kevlar screaming that he would break windows.
He has been arrested and charged with second degree assault. His daughter is in state care.
