Soldier Waterboards Daughter Over Failure To Recite The Alphabet

waterboardingSounds like some soldiers are bringing the lessons of war home with them. The Raw Story reports:

A 27-year-old Washington state soldier allegedly admitted Sunday to having held his daughter’s head in a bowl of water because she couldn’t recite the alphabet — “submerg[ing] her face three or four times until the water was lapping around her forehead and jawline.”

His girlfriend told police that the girl had been found in a closer with bruising on her back and scratch marks on her neck and throat.

Tabor was arrested after being seen in his neighborhood in a Tacoma suburb wearing a Kevlar helmet and threatening to break windows.

    You, sir, are an absolute winner. I will enjoy seeing how your tough guy act plays when the other prisoners find out what you did to your daughter.

    I saw a lot of people like that when I was in the infantry,
    I didn't enlist til i was in my 20's but many of the people i saw who joined right out of highschool were completely changed by army indoctrination from normal to tough guy caricatures, most of them outgrow it, but some don't.
    the psych evaluations you get in the army are a joke, with obvious “right” answers, If we don't want to see much more of this sort of story the army psychology program needs to get a lot more professional.
