There was a view that violent games make people violent. But after checking this news Mother Kills Baby for Interrupting Farmville Facebook Game , you have to re-examine this point of view .
A 22 year-old woman from Jacksonsville, Florida has pleaded guilty to killing her baby son over a game of...Farmville.
Alexandra V. Tobias, 22, was arrested after the January death of 3-month-old Dylan Lee Edmondson. She told investigators she became angry because the baby was crying while she was playing a computer game called FarmVille on the Facebook social-networking website.
Tobias told investigators that she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again. She said the baby may have hit his head during the shaking.
The death has been classed as second-degree murder, a charge that carries a punishment of up to life in prison.
FarmVille is a game where you can farm with your friends. The idea of the game is to manage your very own farm and make it as best as possible. You just need to gain experience points and collect coins in order to move forward.
FarmVille has nothing to do with violence, but why the baby was killed because of the game? Who makes people violent? It is not the game, it's the person.
