U.S. Soldier Arrested For Waterboarding 4-Year-Old

February 8, 2010

Washington (ChattahBox) – A U.S. soldier has been arrested after he waterboarded his four-year-old daughter for not being able to recite her ABC’s.

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.

    What would make someone waterboard his/her own child? Tabor may be suffering from PTSD, if he has served in Iraq or Afghanistan. Hopefully, he’ll receive the help he needs. I’m glad that the little girl had the courage to let someone know what he did to her, and that she is now out of that home environment. I hope she gets the counseling she needs to make a full recovery.
