The other day I asked, in response to the story about a man stomping a woman’s head because she doesn’t vote according to his beliefs, “So this is where we’re at America?” Well apparently, this is where we’re at:
22-year old Alexandra V. Tobias pleaded guilty to killing her 3-month old baby when he wouldn’t stop crying as she played Farmville. She shook her son, then had a cigarette to “calm herself,” then shook him some more.
In case you’re not on Facebook (as I’m not), and are unfamiliar with Farmville, Wikipedia describes it like this: “The game allows members of Facebook to manage a virtual farm by plowing land, planting, growing and harvesting virtual crops, harvesting trees and bushes, and by raising livestock.”
Well that sounds … fascinating. And rage-inducing.
If convicted of second-degree murder, Tobias may serve life in prison.
