A Florida man has been charged in the shaking death of his three-month-old son because he wouldn't stop crying while he was trying to play a game on his Xbox 360. According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, the death occurred on Thursday. Twenty-year-old Lakeland, Florida resident Jacob David Hartley admitted to authorities that he shook the baby violently in the early morning hours of April 5. The infant’s mother, Amber Newton, claims that she discovered several hours later that her son was "unresponsive and bleeding from his nose and mouth," according to what she told the police.

"The infant was transported to Bartow Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced deceased," according to the sheriff's office statement.

Police say that Hartley admitted to them that he used both hands to shake the boy during a video game session prior to leaving for work. Detectives also learned that the father shook the child approximately one week prior to the latest incident because he would not stop crying.

Hartley has been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child and aggravated child abuse. The mother has not been charged in the infant’s death as of this writing.

1. Nerd rage is for controllers, not children.

2. If gaming makes you act this way then you should find another hobby.

3. Do they have the death penalty? Get this loser out of here.

Yes, Florida does have the Death Penalty, and yes he deserves it.

AF has "a room" :o !?

Anyway, I was going to say something funny when I saw the title of this post, something like stupid kid, etc, but when I read this, I got SUPER peeved. What a complete.....I can't honestly think of a word worth calling this pathetic excuse for a life. If there is such a thing as hell, I hope he enjoys his stay. What a monster..... I have a 2.5-year old baby brother (I'm 15 years older than him), and he sees me as a second father. If I ever got angry enough to kill him over a F'n video game, I would actually request the death penalty as I would have no right to walking the earth any longer! We may be able to bring life into the world, but we have no right to take it away.


Darn you Wade :( ! (Just kidding, I'm not serious about the darn you part :D lol) for ruining my morning! I am now really upset over this story!

How violently was he shaking? Human infants can't be that fragile, can they?

Take a look at my checklist!

Three month olds havent developed the muscles in their neck yet.. hell, they cant even sit up on their own. They can't even cry very loud at 3 months old. This guy was just looking for an excuse for his nerd rage.

Piece of fucking shit. The death penalty is too good for this waste of human life, he should suffer for years before he's allowed to die. I've an almost 2 year old now (he turns 2 on April 28th) and while there have been many times where I've been frustrated form lack of sleep or whatever, I have NEVER even thought of harming him. For fucks sake, an infant is totally 100% dependent on it's parents and no matter how frustrated you are with them, or how much they cry they should NEVER be punished for it.

I feel bad for the mother too. She seems like she legitimately didn't know what was going on and it's terrible for her to have to lose a child. They should string the fucking father up in the town square and let everyone use him as a pinata.

Honestly, you could shake a grown man roughly and kill him. If he's unconscious/can't defend himself.

It's not the shaking itself that kills - it's what the shaking does - injury to muscles in the neck, jarring of the brain inside the skull, etc.

It doesn't take much to kill an infant that way. It's like beating up a plant, basically. They can't defend themselves in any way at all.

The fact that this dipshit is getting no more than Manslaughter disappoints me. Immensely. This is so far worse than manslaughter it's not even funny. Then again, Florida is the state that allows you to shoot someone just because you feel threatened by them in some way.

I hate this place more and more every day. And it's people like him, and situations like this that make me feel that way.

What a scum bag, I hope that guy gets put to death.

And I'm a strong believer that if someone takes an innocent life, they lose any entitlement to human rights, therefore, I think he should be violently shaken to death by some machine.

That's what I wanted to know.

But seriously, I hope he goes to prison, gets butt-f*cked for a bit, then put to death. That seems like a fitting way to live out the last days of your (his) life.

Heeyyyy! Lookie! I found his competition for "Dipshit of the Millennium"!

http://www.wtsp.com/...r-crying-infant

Port Richey, Florida - The Pasco County Sheriff's office says 18-year old Chekayla Ariel Dampier ran 142-degree hot water over a 7-week-old boy. She was allegedly upset the baby would not stop crying.

Deputies say Dampier admitted to sitting the baby in the sink and running the scalding water over his face and body to get him to stop crying. Deputies say Dampier then showed deputies how she placed the baby's head under the faucet and turned the hot water knob. She allegedly recreated the abuse on video.

Detectives say Dampier also admitted the baby cried during the entire ordeal, which lasted two or three minutes.

** Before you read on, we want to warn you the injuries are graphic. **

According to her arrest report, Dampier says she noticed his skin coming off and other parts of his skin began "bubbling." Deputies say the boy was burned so badly, when paramedics took off his clothing, skin and and his nipple came off.

The infant is being treated at Tampa General Hospital's burn unit.

Deputies are not releasing the baby's relationship to Dampier, but her Facebook page indicates she gave birth to a son at the end of February.

Yeah, holy crap, there are A TON of parents out there who don't even deserve to be parents. He better not try to pull the "video games made me violent" crap, cause that's gotten old and has been proven false several times. I don't care if you're playing a game like Manhunt 2 (or whatever), if you do something like this while playing a game, it's not the game's fault you're violent, you've already got screws loose.

Stories like this remind me I'm doing humanity a favor by not having kids. I can't stand them, but I refuse to have kids, because I wouldn't be a good father at all. Just have no patience for kids.

Hey, c'mon now. I'd say only slightly over half of us are capable of this.
