Why? You"ll never believe this one, I-A-Bers. Surprisingly, not a family from Florida, and not an Onion parody.

This is what you would refer to as a "malfunction". This piece of U.S. Government property doesn`t understand the difference between "war" and "family issues". You don`t send a member of the Taliban to their room, and you don`t throw a grenade at your kid because they misbehave. Weed these people out!

My 4yr old just walked in while I was reading this. I looked at his face as he stood there smiling at me, and I thought how could anyone do that to a child?

Some people shouldn`t be allowed to breed. This guy is a prime example. I thank him for his service to the country, but past deeds don`t make him exempt from being a douche bag.

America. Phuck Yeah!

And to think that these are the people that are sent over to fight for our freedom...even though last time I got into it, our freedom wasn`t really at stake...ever. Never in American history has our freedom ever been at stake. Jussayin.

Waterboarding a 4-year-old that is afraid of water. Yeah, that won`t scar your daughter for life. Dude`s messed up in the head or something...

"During a police interview Tabor allegedly admitted grabbing his daughter, placing her on the kitchen counter and submerging her face into a bowl of water.
Because something on record is something we`re not fully sure happened and a confession shouldn`t be the thing that condemns a man! (SARCASM)

"U.S. Soldier Waterboarded His 4-Year-Old Daughter"
"Why?"

Uhhh...this is just the guesstimation of a lay person, but...maybe...BECAUSE HE`S CRAZY?!?!

The article says he was given custody of the girl by order of the court, well, hopefully it was revoked straight away and she is in therapy. She`ll need it. Where is this kid`s mother and why was custody awarded to the father if he`s this screwed up?

Grrrr...this makes me mad as hell but you have to be thankful that poor little girl didn`t wind up dead like so many other horribly abused kids we read about these days.

It`s hard to say what transpired. I`m note certain I care for the slant the site provided since it seems less interested in facts and more interested in sensationalism, however, if the guy did in fact pull some bull$hit like this, he shouldn`t be walking around without a boot affixed firmly to his hemorrhoid hole.

Look, can we ditch the "waterboarding" lingo, it wasn`t that. He admited to dunking her face into a "bowl" of water. granted, the dude`s f`d up... walking around the neighborhood with his kevlar helmet then admitting to the abuse of his girl. Media is taking this too far including the waterboarding context.

HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE IS AMERICAN. There is a much higher percentage of Americans who are crazy compared to those who come from other countries. It`s true because I said so, right LazyMe484?

this article is vague and unclear. According to the argument he "submerged her face three or four times until the water was lapping around her forehead and jawline"

if (if if if if if) this the truth this is not a case of waterboarding. This is unnecesarily scaring a child. Still not ok, but not as bad as waterboarding. There are however the visible marks on the child`s body to think of.

I refrain from passing judgement until more is known and I reccomend that the man see a counselor and attend parenting classes.

Poor little thing. I have a 3 year old daughter, and I cant imagine her going though this kind of horror, she`s so open and gentle and innocent. If the Aussie prison system is anything like the UK, (and I reckon it is), they`ll have to sew him back together before they let him out.

Boadicea: Australia is full of criminals and snakes.
If you haven`t noticed, I`m merely poking the beehive. I`m not from America but I assure you, I`m more pro-America than Americans are. When you`ve been to as many places as I have you`ll realize America is an Oasis in a desert of poo. Is their entire government corrupt? Yeah. Are their police abusive and do they overreach every day? Yeah. Do their judges know the law at all? No. Has their educational programs been sliping and slipping to the point their children are all morons? Yeah. But you piss them off enough and they`ll rally together and get poo done like no other people can. They`re not afraid to blow poo up when they have to, and that`s more than a lot of countries can say. The only reason the entire world isn`t at war with each other is because of...yep, America.

JimmytheMed: So does that gross Austrian guy who locked up his daughter in some secret underground living space and fathered like 5 children with her reflect well on Europe? Because clearly ONE case is enough to say `Europe is a disgusting incestuous poohole`. Oh, is that not a fair assessment based on one sick non-nice individual? Get a drating life.

That you`re all morons, I think. American children aren`t even being taught to spell for Christs sake. A four year old that doesn`t know her alphabet? In most European countries our children speak their native language AND English by third grade.

the girl was 4 and didn`t know her alphabet, that`s probably how the father got custody in the first place.i can see being frustrated with the child, but what kind of father would choose to hurt their child for being a victim of bad parenting?the kind that is forcibly sterilized? only in a perfect word.
