A north Florida mother has pleaded guilty to shaking her baby to death after the boy's crying interrupted her game on Facebook.


Alexandra V. Tobias pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Wednesday and remains jailed.

The Florida Times-Union reports that she told investigators she was angered because the boy was crying while she was playing the game Farmville.

The paper also reports that she told investigators she shook the boy, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again.
She will be sentenced in December. State guidelines call for 25 to 50 years, but a prosecutor said it could be shorter than that.
A telephone message and an email sent by The Associated Press to her attorney were not immediately returned.

Some people out there are just messed up in the head, unfortunately. Sucks to be them.

My little sister used to interrupt my mum while she played Farmville, but my mum never did anything like this, she would actually get off the game and go tend to what my sister wanted.

I never play any games on facebook. They're just pointless imo, like flash games. It's nonsense to shutdown facebook over this murder.

Like the case of a kid shooting his parent because they interrupted his Halo game. Should Halo be banned and the studio shutdown? No, that's just dumb. It's the mentally disturbed people should get what's coming.

Same case with this.;)

Yeah :/ People with severe mental problems shouldn't be allowed kids imo -- there was this case I heard on the radio yesterday about a woman who repeatedly stabbed her child, before dousing her body in acid :/

I think the trouble starts when you prioritise Farmville over a child; in fact when you prioritise Farmville over almost anything. It's a slippery slope from there. :(

No.

I use FaceBook daily. I never play the games because they're all ****. I also have family in other parts of the world, and we communicate via FaceBook, as it's the easiest and cheapist way to get in contact, talk and see how our lives are going. I can see how my 12 year old cousin from Denmark is going, or how my Uncle is liking France. They're not going to shut down a website that is extremely valuable and useful for the people who use it correctly, just because some bogan ***** shakes her baby to death over corn and milking virtual cows.

I'm fascinated by how such addiction works. What the hell happened in this woman's brain, that suddenly it thinks playing a game is much more important than caring for her own child? It's completely against anything a mother's instincts would tell her.

All I can say is holy crap... I'm a bit confused though; how can shaking a baby be deadly? I know that they're fragile, so I guess their heads are very soft at that age.

The back and forth motion causes the brain to bounce off the skull. Bleeding both inside and around the brain occurs. It's more dangerous for babies under a year of age, but young children can be seriously harmed as well.

If not death, shaking can cause permanent brain damage.

I heard about this baby's death last night, and it made me feel sick. That woman had to have something wrong with her to do this to her child.

knightgames
29-10-10, 17:59
Despite FARMVILLE, there's an important message here. Sure, we're all intelligent enough to not shake a baby, but sometimes even the best of us lose our patience.

If you're ever in a situation where a baby's incessant crying puts you close to the edge, WALK AWAY. Call a friend, mother, brother, help line. Do ANYTHING but pick up the child.

This happens more than you know.

Just because the apps are there doesn't mean you have to use them. I refuse every App request I get sent, because I don't want my page getting muddied up, and I think they're stupid... But the site as a whole is still just a social networking site, the rest of the junk is something that people have a choice about whether to waste their time with or not.

I personally am inclined to believe that her brain was altered by an addiction, much like any other. Whether or not this means she should be treated as an insane person (in legal terms), is debatable, to say the least...

This is disturbing on so many levels..didn't even think it was real at first until it finally sank in. And unlike most people I don't blame facebook or the game, I blame the mother for doing this to her own flesh and blood. Nothing, and I mean nothing should come before your kids. Sadly she'll go for the insanity thing and get a slap on the wrist more than likely just like so many other people.

oh God. thats terrible. it seems funny in theory: someone killing another due to Farmville, but not at all when its reality.

im glad she plead guilty, though; makes her seem like she knows what she did is wrong. i dont think she actually meant to kill her child, but when nuts of anger or something. anyways, i hope she can forgive herself, if she even feels any remorse.

I heard about many women killing their children. Like put them in the oven or throw them on the wall or out of the balcony.

Isn't it a mental disease that mothers sometimes gets? Because it's so stressing with a baby and they just kill it. It almost happends my mother when my oldest sister were a baby and then it happened my oldest sister with her baby. But both got help so their didn't harm they babies in any way.

I think this mother should get help.

I think this mother should get help.

You're thinking of Post Natal depression. In can effect a woman at any point after the birth of a child, but more common, I believe, in the first 6 months. If left untreated, it can last months even years in some cases. Unfortunately, it is something that some women may be unsure about going to a doctor for, maybe because they're scared they'll be seen as 'unfit' and worse their child may be taken away, or perhaps they feel/hope their condition isn't worthy of treatment, or that it will go away by itself. I think sometimes it can go away in time, but a more serious case needs proper concern and treatment/therapy. A woman can get lots of support these days.

In this woman's case, however, I think there was more to it than depression. Maybe her depression led her to invest time in the game (as a way to get away from 'real life', which led to severe addiction, which, sadly, led to the extreme actions she took.

This is terrible. That woman should get life in my opinion. Who does that? It almost reminds of that boy who killed his mother because she took away his Halo 3 game from him. Crazy people. On the note of talking about FB, I personally like it and I do not think it should be shut down just because of this. If someone were to kill someone over a TR game or something would you want there to be no more TR? I don't think so.

that's awful and they should shut down facebook altogether, really.

I agree
I've never seen facebook used for anything good.

I don't think Facebook should be shut down- it's just well it isn't for everyone. I dislike it.

And that's my opinion. so deal with it (:

I can see that it is your opinion, and I have dealt with it- like what, 50+ times now? All it takes is for one person to state their opinion- and someone to say I agree. Not for everyone to quote the exact same post pages down the line just to say the same thing.

+1 post count?

I keep in touch with people from my primary school who I haven't seen in years. I'd say that's kinda good. :p

Actually it started off as a simple collage networking site which allowed students to share personal pictures from collage events and the like with each other. Then it spiraled up to a networking phenomenon on a global scale.

Its an amazing tool for networking, planning out events and the like. However, majority of facebook users don't use the site for constructive reasons.

So true. It's the main reason I avoid the place- all it does for me is cause bother. I mean, if I want to keep in touch with friends I'll make sure to ring 'em, or y'know go visit. People still leave the house, right?

What if said friends have moved a long way away, or even to the other side of the world? (He was a good friend too... :p)

Curious question:

None, haha. :whi:

^ Perhaps because they have had experiences with Facebook that make them have this view or to even just leave, and think nothing more of it?

What if said friends have moved a long way away, or even to the other side of the world? (He was a good friend too... :p)

Phone? Steam? MSN? Skype? Telegraph? Text? Email? I mean, come on, Facebook isn't the only choice to communicate other than going to visit. :o

If this is true, then the paradoxic event loop comes into play here. I for one for instance can't stand MMORPGs. IMO they are truly the devil's creation that have robbed people of their lives :p. I have seen some of my fellow University students come in class looking like zombies since they were up late playing MMORPG games. Ironically enough, farmville can be classified as a sort of MMORPG.

HOWEVER, I have seen people spend their "free time" on MMORPG games wisely and balance it out perfectly with their lives. So while I will never touch any MMORPG type games let alone play it, I don't see a concrete enough reason to ban them.

Never! :p

See I moved away from friends and so I ended up getting on Facebook to see if i couldn't find them. Ended up finding a lot of people on there that I'd lost touch with, was kinda cool. But then they stopped talking to me and so I really don't go on a whole lot now. I'd go visit a few friends but they either live in another state or overseas :p Makes it difficult.

WTF is Farmville?

Sounds like a redneck version of SimCity, lol.

Facebook is just an annoying fad. In 5 years time it wont be half as popular as it is now. I think it's already peaked.

I have a strong feeling they were playing World of Warcraft. Jeez everyone says it's like the game of God :/

I hate Farmville even though I like Facebook. However, people saying they should shut down the game or the site is stupid.

I mean, it's like saying, "OMG someone killed this boy because he interrupted her when she was doing homework! They should stop giving homework all-together." Hmmmm... now that I think about, I would probably be in favor of that argument... :pi:

...ANYWAY, you get the point!

Shut down Facebook because one idiot can't seperate life from a stupid game? No. What people need to do is stop being so needy and thinking these games are anything but a bit of fun. I don't play them myself but I know people that panic, cry, scream..whatever..because they can't get onto Farmville to get their crops pressed or whatever. It's pathetic.

GET A REAL ****ING LIFE, MAATE.

That's true remember the facebook campaign that was set up calling for the woman who put the cat in the bin to be killed or was it for her to be put in a bin i forget which it's one or the other.

Well, I guess the day some mom kills her child because she wants to play Tomb Raider, people here will also say Tomb Raider should end after that :)

So far, only two people in this thread have said that Facebook should shut down, and one of those people mentioned reasons other than this incident. Yet somehow that became almost the "centerpiece" of this thread. Lol.
