Man Faces Waterboarding Charges

A Jefferson County man was charged Thursday after authorities accused him of waterboarding at least two boys and injuring a woman who tried to stop him. William Albert Province, 42, also is suspected of making threats to a school, Child Protective Services officials and foster parents caring for his children. Authorities have not identified his alleged victims. Province made an initial appearance in Justice Court Thursday morning. He remains jailed in Boulder on $200,000 bail and was not available for comment, authorities said. Court officials did not have his paperwork, and it was not clear whether he had an attorney. He was arrested Tuesday night at the Helena airport when he returned from Alaska, Helena police Chief Troy McGee said/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Is there any cruelty that man does to man that surprises you any more?
