    A 22 year-old woman from Jacksonsville, Florida has pleaded guilty to killing her baby son over a game of...Farmville.

    Alexandra V. Tobias says her three-month old child, Dylan Lee Edmondson, had been crying while she was trying to play the popular Facebook casual game. This angered Tobias, who told authorities that she shook the baby, had a cigarette to calm herself down, then shook him again. It's believed he "may have hit his head during the shaking".

    Dylan's death was classified as second-degree murder, a charge that carries the possibility of a life sentence in prison.[/p]

    No words can express how completely messed up this is.
    More and more these kinds of things happen and it just pushes us closer to an unkind end.

    I don't even see how Farmville is fun. Never tried it, but it certainly does not look addicting enough to kill one's own child.

    Judging from mugshot alone, there's not even a single trace of remorse in her expression. She looks completely unbalanced mentally, and looks as if her son's death isn't registering to her. No emotion whatsoever. Also, "a charge that carries the possibility of a life sentence in prison." Honestly, there's no ruminating on the outcome of this.

    What the hell happened to the right side of her face?
    She looks to me like the type of mother to abuse her child regardless, but as usual, video games have to be blamed for everything (and to possibly lighten her sentence).

    Anything that would interrupt an addiction can lead to anger, but to do this over a silly game is down-right inexcusable, especially to your own child. I hope he gets life for this, so she can ponder the life her child could have had had she not been stupid.

    [Asshole]Well, the baby DID interrupt her. [/Asshole]


    This is sickening, and Farmville is kind of addicting. I got addicted to Animal Crossing for 3 months. When I quit, I felt horrible.

    I was like 'bullshit' when I saw the title - 'Yeah, right. This "news" has got to be total bullshit'.

    Then I read it... 0-o. Messed up, sick woman. Someone should kill HER and see if she likes it. But on the other hand, that would be stooping down to her level, wouldn't it.

    This is sad, can we become that addicted to the point we can kill someone?! You can ALWAYS get back the experience in a game but you can NEVER get back your own child. That woman is dangerous, she's not going to be tamed easily.

    That's really sad. The mother might have been 'left' out for her to do this kind of act. Yep, I am talking about early pregnancy. Seeing that this is a 22 year old she might not be ready to be a mother. I also think farmville is not addicting at least for me. Happy Aquarium is! (though I don't play that anymore) [​IMG]

    You guys aren't looking at it from the right angle. Yeah it was a baby, but she had the baby, the baby had half her genes and may have grown up to be even more fucked up then she was.

    edit: not to mention, I don't think the baby would of grown up to be healthy or have a good life. Yeah, there is the probability it may have become the next president, but what good has a president ever done us anyways.

    Don't even start with me. I'm recovering from a hang-over and I am in no condition to even argue.

    Yeah..
    Though, your logical sense, I understand what you mean, but still tis not right to kill a baby in any way, the kid should at least get a chance.

    I'm sorry but I find it quite disturbing that someone could wish such a thing upon a person they have never even met.

    Two wrongs don't make a right. It's frankly barbaric that capital punishment is still carried out in many countries. Telling people they can't kill others and then killing them for doing so is extremely hypocritical.
