Shocking!!!! I agree with David! I have to say it makes me speechless. What kind of a doctor will do something so horrible and evil to a child? Poor girl! Thanks Rose

as long as any being lives in fear, hate, exploitation and death at the hands of man so shall all men live under this same threat, don't fool yourself no one is free as long as another is oppressed. withdraw your consent for as long as we agree to the small things we have agreed to the big ones, the pebble seems so small but its effects are far reaching
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

So, I guess according to the little girl's father-one can be tortured using that method for 5 minutes without suffering brain damage so it is acceptable for him to do it to her. How reassuring...... Poor child-hope she and her little sister get adopted by a nice normal and loving family. There should be a reprieve on waterboarding just for this monster and his monster wife to enjoy many extended hours of "research". I am sure he won't have a problem with being the subject of his own study. Works for me. I am pretty sure he and wifey are already brain damaged so what's a little more matter?

He should try some water-boarding himself. I hope the little girls will recover.

The man is unhinged!! His wife is a disgrace. She should have protected her child.

Could be Dr. Mengeler's grandson? What a demented person who would subject anyone let alone his own children to such harsh treatments.

If true, very sick indeed.

Perhaps he should be subjected to waterboarding in an effort to learn the truth.... Whether it works are not....

Wacko. Trying to use his daughter for a 'near-death experience' experiment perhaps? He should have done it on himself.

I believe every is thinking the same punishment for him and his feeble minded wife...a good dose of his own "cure" or "research".
He should have stuck to writing fantasy.

If true he has violated the Hippocratic oath and AMA should toss him out. He and wife should be tried and if convicted receive a harsh sentence. Their assets seized and put in a trust for their daughters.

To violate the trust of one's own child is bad enough, but this $&% is a pediatrition! He needs to have his licens revoked. And all the pop culture tv shows should warn their listeners that they DO NOT in anyway endorse him. Shame on those parents.

Where are all of these ill minded idiots coming from. If they want to do violent acts, I suggest that they do it themselves. I agree with Janet, that his medical license should be revoked and that he and his wife be sent to prision with the key to their doors lost. Thanks Cal

Paediatrician? More like mad scientist in some sci-fi movie from the 60's experimenting with near-death experience. What a warped individual.

Dear Colleen L.

Where are the idiots coming from you ask?
You need a license to drive, a license to buy a gun, a license to own a dog, a license to practice medicine BUT sadly one does not need a license to bear and raise children. With both children now in the hands of DCF, let the games begin at the expense of these precious girls'...they have yet toomwitness how cruel the world can be beyond the torture endured already...

It seems he was trying to get his daughter to experience a near death experience so she could add to his data on the subject. What an cruel bastard!

The father is plainly an ill man. The mother ...scared of her husband, believed in his work,? Whose to say. Both should never have any connection to this child ever again.
Sadly, the child would have no idea why. How do you explain to a child that daddy and mommy were trying as close as they could to kill you?

Weatherboarding was outlawed in 2009.

Charge this "Doctor" Melvin Morse with this crime and his wife as an accessory.
Both of the little girls should be taken away from their parents, permanently.

Ty, Rose.

let this father and mother sickos experience their own " near death ' experience. The children will need a lot of special counseling and right guidance from the effects of these two sick people called mom and dad

My father who had a brilliant mind also did those kind of experiments on people. Only a severe speech impairment held him back. He had grandiose ideas and associated with people such a Tesla about mining power from the earth's magnetic field.. I believe now he suffered from what is now called bi polar disorder.

Unworthy of being a parent and that goes the the idiot wife who stood by and said nothing. I am further appalled by the small about of bail. Heck, they are probably already out by now getting a good lawyer to protect from jail. These little girls need to be protected from the parents on a permanent basis.

I can't understand how someone doesn't feel that it is wrong when they are doing this. This man has no conscience. I hope that the daughter can get over this cruel treatment and the loss of her parents. They definitely need to be jailed. They should be waterboarded so they can truly feel what it is like.

Just too depressing to talk about. Best thing to do is focus and send powerfully lovely healing waves of energy to the 2 children of this madman.... They need to experience how beautiful and safe life CAN be.. It's the children we need to direct our energies towards. Let the law and karma deal with the disturbed parents in name only.
