    34-year-old Shannon Johnson has been arrested after telling police officers that the reason her one-year-old son drowned in a bathtub several months ago is because she was busy playing a game on Facebook and left him to bathe unsupervised.

    According to the arrest affidavit for this incident—which you can find below—Johnson was playing a Facebook game called Cafe World as well as browsing her news feed and uploading videos during the time her son was in the bathtub. She apparently only checked in on him once over the course of a ten-minute period and justified it by saying that she felt "her son was preternaturally independent, and simply wanted to be alone."[/p]

    These facebook related news are becoming really common, aren't they?

    Quick, blame facebook!

    This wouldn't be news if it was because she was just watching TV or microwaving a meal.

    It's sad, I know quite a few people who do nothing but fuck around on Facebook all day and play *ville games.

    Usually their excuses are something like "at least it's not something evil like world of warcraft" and "everybody is doing it so it's okay"

    and now people are letting their children die for a goddamn flash game

    I remember when facebook was actually used for social networking :/

    This is why I vote for an IQ test and a psych test before you have sex. If you are deemed to dumb to have kids you will be neutered.

    This woman should be shot, plain and simple like any other murderer [​IMG]

    Which retarded person would leave a baby in a tub unattended.
    Wait I know, someone who is addicted to a shitty flash game on Facebook. Facebook is a social networking site for pete's sake.

    Facebook games aren't even fun, yet they're sweeping the world like WoW (another game I find unfun).

    I guess it's a good thing I was born long before Facebook and its ____ville games came along. My mum is so addicted to them it's nuts.

    Stupid, stupid parents neglecting their young children and babies over shit games.

    she screwed up, but unless you are a parent I don't think anyone here has the right to say squat about parenting, or judge. since half the people here are children anyway

    Sure, parenting isn't easy, but when your child dies due to your actions and addictions, I think it's safe to assume you did a little more than "screw up".

    Woohoo I have the right to say something [​IMG]

    Seriously though, this woman is a fucking failure and it makes me sick.

    Im not saying Im the perfect parent, Ive made several mistakes like bumping his head because I wasnt carefull enough (stupid low ceilings >_>) but I have NEVER left my son unattended.
    I owned a hostel and when there was a fire I didnt leave my kid unattended.
    When one of my backpackers was bitten by a spider and had to be rushed to the hospital I didnt leave him unattended.

    There is absolutely NO excuse to leave your child unattended in those situations and leaving him in the bath? Yea sure you can do that... when theyre 3 or older -______- and even then its not the smartest idea.

    I bet this cow also filled up the bath to about 15cm instead of 5 like youre suppose to

    right and living with the guilt of committing such a thing to your own son is something that you will never fully understand until you have a child yoruself. so my opinion still stands. unless you are a parent you have no freaking clue what it's like.
