if the baby could be a grown-up someday, he would have been a some sort of sadistic serial killer

However, she won`t go to trial until December, when this poo happened in January... So, yea, here we are just letting this psycho bitch eat up tax dollars.

Actually- She plead guilty to spare the family reliving it through trial but I hear ya.

Love it how she shook him- smoked a cigarette to calm herself down and then shook him again...Poor little thing :(

come on, the kid`s only 3 months old - it hasn`t even contributed to society in a meaningful yet...

I don`t want to click on the link. I really don`t, because I`d rather stay safe on the IAB page and not get further pissed off at the idiocy of some people in society.

The only sensible, mature decision I ever made in my 20`s was...to NOT get pregnant under any circumstances. I was a freakin` goof-ball & had no business trying to raise a child. I also wanted an education & lots & lots of partying. Worked out well...I`m so very glad I waited to have kids. Oh, and to be clear--I am not talking about abstinence. I`m talkin` contraceptives.

I hate most of humanity. Honestly, you should have to pass a government mandated test before being allowed to have kids, purposely or otherwise. Snip and twist until you pass, and you only get so many tries.

What is this FARMVILLE?! I assume it is some violent game involving the farming of marijuana. The girl`s addiction to the game is obviously what caused this. Facebook is supposed to be a safe place for kids and I don`t think these violent games should be on there!"

I laughed so drating hard.

I feel sorry for her. By pleading guilty to 2nd degree murder instead of going to trial, she showed that she knew what she did. This was a senseless tragedy brought on by extreme self-absorption.

"Facebook is supposed to be a safe place for kids..."

Um... drat no. Doesn`t it specifically say when you`re going through the sign up process that the site is for people 16 years of age or older? Besides, what kind of kid (or anyone else for that matter) needs to be social networking?

Also, the video game, whether or not this dumb bitch was on drugs, and any other factors, are completely irrelevant. This woman committed murder, and whether she claims it was negligent or not, that doesn`t change the fact that she is clearly a threat to society. She should be executed in a quick expedient manner. However, she won`t go to trial until December, when this poo happened in January... So, yea, here we are just letting this psycho bitch eat up tax dollars.

I am SO sick of people blaming video games for crimes and violence. I`ve been playing violent video games since I has the hand/eye coordination to play them, and I`m really not a violent person (unless you provoke me, but then again, who isn`t?)

This chick was probably drugged out of her mind. And to whoever said the comment about the 3rd trimester abortion in the comments, um, no. The only time it`s legal in the US is if the mother`s life is in danger or the fetus will be stillborn anyway. People are such fail...

Gorgack, I just read that article, then one linked in its comments, and several more after that. I already felt like Zynga was more than a bit shifty, but that just proves it. I do agree that Farmville had little to do with it except just being the catalyst for a reaction that would`ve probably happened anyways because of her mental health issues. I have to assume she had mental health issues, be they permanent or temporarily induced by the stress of raising a child, because no one could do something like that when they were fully sane and rational.

"she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again"

I don`t know about the rest of you. but when I`m mad and I have a smoke. I calm down enough not to continue with that`s was getting me mad. Or at least approach it from a different angle.

This isn`t farmville`s fault really. It`s down to her mental health (or lack thereof) and other factors, farmville was just a bystander.

On the other hand Zynga are evil bastards so I hope they get put out of business over this.

Side note-- I don`t agree with Shadowkin on the death penalty thing... I`m anti-death penalty. Just want to make that clear.

I agree with both Shadowkin and splurbyburbl. I think her problem is a mix of immaturity and anger issues. But can also imagine that she was probably physically and mentally exhausted from caring for a newborn (and probably as a single mother).
Very, very sad. It`s too bad she didn`t seek the help she needed before she destroyed lives.

I wonder what would happen if Farmville would be deleted. Suddenly with no notice.

Or perhaps in 2012 games like WoW, Runescape, Farmville etc. will be deleted and shut down with no notice. I wonder what will happen in the world if something like that were to happen.

WTF?!?! OVER A VIDEOGAME? Nothing a person does in a video game matters, because its a virtual world! Go make money for your baby or something instead. Shouldn`t a mother care about her baby? Unless this is a Hedda Gabler moment.

Although farmville players probably should be shaken as well... this chick would have done it because of a TV show or talking on the phone or something. Broken DNA.

Ugh, on one hand I find it sick. On the other, I understand the raw frustration of having that kind of instant, uncontrollable rage. This young girl most likely was not ready for motherhood, hated the position she put herself in, and in a fit of rage took it all out on that baby (the source of her frustration) because her life as she used to know it was no longer tenable.

I am definitely not making excuses for her, just saying I understand the rage that creates within us, the instantaneous ability to do things that we would not normally do.

This is why I have been so careful not to introduce drastic changes into my life like children and pets. I fear myself.
