Joshua Ryan Tabor, 27, was arrested Sunday, January 31, when police in Yelm, Washington responded to a domestic disturbance call.

It is being reported by the authorities that he admitted to holding his 4-year-old daughter’s head upside-down underwater because she would not recite her A,B,C’s.The torture technique is known as “waterboarding”.

The little girl was found hiding in a locked bathroom, when the police came to rescue her,according to Police Chief Todd Stancil. She went on to say that when the cops coaxed the little girl out of the bathroom they saw that she was covered in “multiple bruises pretty much all over her body with many on her neck and throat.”

When asked how she got the bruises, the girl is said to have replied, “Daddy did it.”

Police arrested Mr Tabor after neighbours reported seeing him walking around the neighborhood irate and intoxicated wearing his Kevlar helmet and threatening to break windows.

Joshua Tabor’s girlfriend also participated in the abuse of the small child. Tabor spoke to a Yelm police officer and said that he and his girlfriend had “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 jaw line.” He said that she was face-up when her head was in the water.

Surprisingly, the police have not yet charged the girlfriend, who is not the 4-year-old mother, with any crime at this time. is reporting how the daughter came to be in the sole-custody of her disturbed father Joshua Tabor…The girl lived with Tabor, his girlfriend and several other children who belonged to the girlfriend. Included in the house was a 2-month-old baby boy Tabor had with his girlfriend.

Tabor’s daughter had only been living with him for just two months, according to Police Chief Todd Stancil. A court ruled late last year that Tabor would split custody of his daughter with the girl’s mother in five month increments. Tabor was to care for the girl for the first half of 2010, said Stancil…(

…She had moved to Yelm from Montana where she lived with her grandparents. Her mother lives in Kansas.

Hopefully she will be allowed to return to Montana, where she was being raised safely and lovingly with her grand parents.

President Barack Obama has outlawed waterboarding because he does not support torture, but it was used often by the CIA on terror suspects while George W. Bush was in office. Suspects would have water poured over their faces, giving them the sensation that they were drowning.

Mr Tabor has been charged with second degree assault. His daughter has been taken into care by the Child Protective Services.

This highlights the fact that we need to provide better mental health care for all the soldiers returning home from tours of duty fighting in Iraq, and Afghanistan.It is common for a soldier to battle Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after experiencing the horrors and human brutality that is a part of war.

  1. wtf!! poor little girl. 😦
    most people shouldn’t fucking breed.

  2. I served with him in Afghanistan and have friends who served with him in Iraq and know first hand he does not have any PTSD. He never saw any combat action. He was just a crazy idiot over seas and back at home. He has no excuses and other Soldiers and Marines with PTSD should not be shamed by this useless idiot.

  3. I guess we can ask, did the military let this “mental deficient” into their ranks or did they make this normal guy in this “mental deficient”. Even Ronald Reagan said that water boarding was torture, but I guess Cheney and his gay daughter are the brain trust on this lie that has been perpetuated onto the American people and signed off by the GOP.

  4. I should like to exploit this situation, but don’t know whom to sleep with, at Child Protective Services.

    It’s not seeing Combat, that would cause PTSD, but the inability to do anything about it.
