Babies waterboarded in Canada

Says former member of FLDS in BC.

“It’s quite common,” Carolyn Blackmore Jessop said. She was a witness for the B.C. government in the constitutional reference case to determine whether Canada’s polygamy law is valid.

“They spank the baby and when it cries, they hold the baby face up under the tap with running water. When they stop crying, they spank it again and the cycle is repeated until they are exhausted.”

It’s typically done by fathers and it’s called “breaking in.”

I got another word for it: torture.

I don't think decriminalization is the answer.

Question: how many spouses will a person be allowed to have? Ten? A hundred? A thousand?

And what happens if the siblings of these polygamous marriages don't know each other (completely plausible) and they end up dating? Crazier things have happened.
