"Farmville" responsible for murder


Charlie - posted on 10/29/2010




What she did was wrong but that "sick bitch " most likely had mental instability for which no one took notice and she obviously had no support for .

Its sad when people with mental illness slips through the cracks and other people end up hurt or dead .

"I say we just ban freakin' video games. Then the people that have no self control won't do something so stupid! UGH!!!! "

Yeah they will. Dickheads will always be dickheads, with or without video games.....It would just be something else they'd get into trouble over.

Mother responsible for being a fuck up of a person and parent resulting in murder. Infant's murder occurred while mom was playing farmville. That's how it should read.
personally hate the game, block all requests and threaten to kill peoples animals if they don''t stop asking me to send them eggs or feed their cows.

stops to smoke a cig then shakes again = premeditated in my books. That's absolutely disgusting. That poor little child :'(

I must be the worst player ever, I am just too busy with actually life to care if my "farm" needs tending or not. All my friends moan at me it's just not on my list of priorities. But to kill over something so stupid and a baby at that... Talk about laying the blame game. Me thinks this lunatic need to see someone over it. I keep wondering what is this world coming to.

Someone ought to shake her! Then maybe some sense would be brought to her.

Wow, I used to play farmville...and it's addicting in the sense that you want to complete each level to earn more crops etc etc etc...but a) (as someone else said) I timed my crops to be ready for harvest when I knew I would have time to harvest them and b) even if it was interrupted then...to KILL your child over it??? I can't even imagine to what point I would have to get to shake my baby or the sense of no control I would be filling or the anger etc etc etc. Obviously she needed help she just wasn't getting. That poor poor baby.

I created a post on this, not knowing there already was one. Too many kids are dying at the hands of their douchebag parents these days, whether it's a newborn left in a garbage can or some sick b**tch like this.

I just saw that. I just can't believe it.

WTH goes through people's minds....

Seriously at a loss for words on this one.

No, I don't think the game is RESPONSIBLE...clearly, she was acting of her own free will...but I CAN believe that the reason she gave was real. My ex was a gamer and those people are FREAKIN nuts sometimes.

"But I only had 10 mins left to harvest my Squash before it wilted!"

Dude, that's what farmville friends are for, to heal your crops! Dumbass!

Yeah, I did the farmville thing while I was pregnant with my daughter. I had my crops timed to be harvested late at night after my son was asleep. Doesn't take a genius to figure out that one. I stopped playing when my daughter was born because ummm I didn't have the time? I didn't need farmville INTERUPTING TIME WITH MY KIDS!

I wish her mother woud have shook her to death when she was 3 months old because she wouldn't stop crying and was interupting her mother's Super Mario 3 game. "But I was almost at the end of the 5th Castle!!"

I don't really mean that but stories like this have a way of making the public completely irrate.

Sick, Sick, Sick I hope she gets her tubes tied. Unfortunately she won't and she'll probably keep spreading her legs (inbetween harvests of course) and producing offspring she has no business producing.

Maybe she should find a virtual baby game so her terrible gameplay doesn't have any effect on RL victims.

I agree. Farmville is not responsible for murder. It is a fun game. I enjoy accomplishing the tasks/projects to see what happens next.

But I'm able to walk away when I want to or need to. For me indulging in this game is just that. An indulgence. Like having decadent chocolate or buying a nice brand name purse.

People out there are abusing their kids for the sake of their addictions all over the place. Some women are addicted to shoes or high $$$ manicures with ridiculous art. In order to indulge that addiction they short their kids nutritional food, attention, clothing, extra activities etc.

Some have even loaded their babies into cars, strapped them in and shoved the car into the lake for the sake of being addicted to pleasing some asshole man.

WTF? farmille is not responsible for this... I mean she could have been playing World of Warcraft or Bingo and she still would have killed the baby for interrupting... What a dumbass.

Farmville has nothing to do with it, SHE killed her baby, she must be mentally unstable because someone who was mentally healthy would NOT do that.

Christina banning video games is not the answer, that is punishing the billions of people who game responsibly for the actions of the very few.

That's true, Jodi. It wouldn't really help.. Just so mad at stupid people, though! UGH!

Charlie - posted on 10/29/2010




Well i didnt really play games but i just started to play pot farm..............holy shit my weed is ready to harvest !!
Im outta here .

That's it.. I just finished reading the article and saw where she said she stopped for a cigarette.. THEN I saw where it said some guy shot his companion in the head while playing XBox!!!!

I say we just ban freakin' video games. Then the people that have no self control won't do something so stupid! UGH!!!! This really pisses me off!

Well, they HAVE self control, they just don't practice it very well.

WHAT THE HELL????? Why would someone need to raise a VIRTUAL baby, when they have one sitting right next to them??????????????????????????????????? Damn! People like that are just irritating as hell!

[deleted account]

It won't let me load the link but I get the idea from everyone's comments and I think it's disgusting. I have 2 games I play on FB: Frontierville and Doom Forge. I haven't played Doom Forge in probably at least a month and even though I do play Frontierville daily (with coffee in the morning and after my son is in bed), I couldn't ever imagine getting so upset over a game that I would harm my son in any way. Ever.

OMG I can't believe that! and I have to agree with Kate on this one! I couldn't believe that even more! Oh let me smoke a cig and then shake my baby some more and THEN she admits it all like it makes it ok!!! WTF!

Kate CP - posted on 10/28/2010




I love it: She smokes a cigarette to compose herself and then shakes the baby again? What the hell?!

I'm gonna type this one more time:

"Maybe she thought she had one more 'unwither' in her gift box."

Kimberly - posted on 10/28/2010




I don't even know what to say about this. Heartbreaking. Pisses me off!
I couldn't pull it up from the link and Googled it and stumbled across another article where a couple let their own baby starve to death while they raised a virtual baby online.

Sick.. some people should not be moms..

On a somewhat related note, one of my husbands friends is constantly posting about her needing this or that in her facebook games, and she has a ton of them and when it's not facebook games she's bitching about her kids being bloody annoying and never listening to her.. (maybe it's cause ur always on the damn computer...) She pisses me off, i've blocked all the notifications of her game because they used to flood my wall. I palyed farmville for about a month, found it stupid and repetitive, deleted it and haven't installed a facebook game ever since..

C. - posted on 10/28/2010




That woman is NUTS!!!!! Who cares if your baby interrupts.. IT'S A GAME!!!!! Pause, take care of your kid, wait until they're asleep, THEN go back and play. MORON! This just pisses me off so bad.. Killing your baby over a fucking game.. That's really sad that you would pick your damn game over your own kid.

I saw that news story today. Nothing like taking responsibility for your own actions.....
