Mom kills newborn over Farmville

Recommended Posts


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Jacksonville woman has pled guilty to killing her baby son over a game on the popular social networking site Facebook.

22 year-old Alexandra V. Tobias says her three-month old boy had been crying while she was trying to play ‘Farmville’. Tobias said she became enraged and told authorities that she shook the baby; then smoked a cigarette to calm herself down, before shaking him again. She also stated he "may have hit his head during the shaking".

The boy’s death was classified as second-degree murder, a charge that carries the possibility of a life sentence in prison.

Tobias entered her plea Wednesday. A second-degree murder charge is punishable by up to life in prison.

Does it seem to anyone else that babies in America aren't valued as highly as they once were? If she had merely eliminated the baby intrauterine 3 months previously, she could have played Farmville unimpeded and considered wise in her choice. What a difference 3 months can make!

You're right.

Also, both situations are the product of a lack of [real] sexual education in the school system: condom usage and birth control usage, results from having unprotected sex, etc. It wouldn't hurt to have an ethics class in high school either. Look at failin' palin's elder daughter and her boyfriend, for example - young, ignorant or flat-out stupid, unmarried, and with little regard for their respective futures and that of their child :beatnik:
