Soldier Waterboards 4-Year-Old Daughter
Ohanian Comment: Whether you call it Common Core or National Standards, when you decree that kindergartners must know upper and lower case alphabet letters and how to form the plural of "baby", then you'll have anxious (and mentally disturbed) parents over eager to make sure their children are successful in kindergarten.

U.S. Army soldier Joshua Tabor has admitted to waterboarding his 4-year-old daughter because she couldnĂ˘€™t recite the alphabet, according to police. Tabor, stationed at Ft. Lewis, Washington, was arrested after being seen walking around his neighborhood wearing a military-issue Kevlar helmet and threatening to break windows. Cops went to TaborĂ˘€™s home and spoke with his girlfriend, who told them she found the girl hiding in a closet with bruises and scratches on her back and neck. Ă˘€śDaddy did it,Ă˘€ť the girl told the woman. Police say Tabor admitted to the torture because he was so angry the girl could not recite the alphabet. He chose waterboardingĂ˘€”the CIA torture technique that simulates drowning and has been banned by the Obama administrationĂ˘€”because he knew the girl was terrified of water. He had won custody of his daughter only four weeks earlier. Police have not given details about TaborĂ˘€™s military service.
