I've only ever played online for one game, Mass Effect 3. One session, a guy's daughter asked him to read her a book. He apparently had the book memorized, so he "read" the whole thing to her without putting down the controller. I still can't tell if that was the sweetest or worst thing I've ever heard.

It can be hard for a man-child to adjust to the level of responsibility required to be the caretaker of a child, but, my God, man. You broke its farking leg. I'm appalled.

What a piece of shiat. Someone linked his facebook account on there and the dumbass has his phone number posted. I think the world needs to give this shiat head a call and tell him what we would do if we find him. I know I am.

Did anybody else have the PlayStation 4 ad show up embedded in the story when they clicked the link?  Not sure if that was clever, or sick.

Hilarious his fb page has his phone number on it.  From the looks of it and "Paulsbabygirl" who I assume is the mom, this baby needs to be put up for adoption ASAP.

Maybe it was self defense.

Let's be fair, from the mugshot it looks like he was winning handily, ad it was obviously a very important game.

After 4 years of WoW, my wife made me promise never to play a game where I was "locked" in for hours on end (raiding). I can't imagine not dropping everything at the drop of a hat if my farking kid wants attention over a stupid game. Maybe I'm just getting older and wiser.

It wasn't his kid, from the article it seems it was a Child his grandmother watched and he had an agreement to assist in the child care because he was unemployed and living with her.

I can't imagine how someone could break a child's leg accidentally changing a diaper. I am a pretty big guy and don't always know my strength, I have changed enough diapers to know that when you have a poopy butt that you are trying not to touch bare handed and the wiggly baby you do tend to try and anchor a baby by a leg while going for a wipe but even on the awkward one handle juggling one tends to perform in this situation I have never seen where the child is in pain from the awkward angles they can end up or even close to were there was a risk of bones breaking.

This 20 year old man child needs to be forced to wear a diaper then have some dude come break his leg changing it. Some people have to learn empathy the hard way.

It took me a few weeks of nagging to adjust to the kid > game priority switch. I save my gaming for after the kid goes to bed now. Spend time with your kids. It makes the world a better place. Some day I will play Civilization VI or VII with my kids, and I will be glad that I chose them over games.

I would never break a kid's leg like this because I don't play video games.

When I first looked at his mugshot I thought he was at the most 15 or 16. Reading the article disabused me of that notion however..

My old guild was fine with me going afk-bio when my daughter needed me....even if it wiped the attempt. It's just a game. I appreciated this, and chipped in for repairs.

The babby needed surgery and a hip cast? He didn't just break the kid's leg - he broke the f*ck out of it.

I suspect this might just be the punishment that would hurt this manchild asshole the most. A lifetime ban on gaming of any kind.

Guy's a lowlife and richly deserves what's coming to him, but what the fark was Grandma thinking? She showed him how to change a diaper but the baby "always cried"?

Seriously, that wasn't a clue? Grandma probably couldn't wait to tell DCF and the cops how the kid cried whenever he changed it. So she was concerned, but not concerned enough to change a shiatty diaper.

One thing to remember is that babies bones are still fairly limber.  Breaking them takes a lot more concerted effort than older children's bones.

On that note, this guy needs white hot blazing pokers shoved in various orifices.

Are you kidding?  Playing Fallout 3 at 2am was the only way I was able to keep my sanity when I was watching my newborn.  Now at 2.5, he watches me play GTA5 and exclaims "uh-oh!" every time I kill someone online.

Without more information....I think it's premature to have much of an opinion on this.

Accidents happen all the time.  And people's emotional state affects pretty much everything they do.  Being angry will cause people to drive differently.  They're calling him a 'man' but, let's face it - in the US you aren't a man until you hit...what is it now....26?  Until then, you're a manchild who can chill on your parent's health insurance, right?

So here is a 20 year old guy who is being hassled by the Grandmother of the child.  It doesn't say if the child's Grandmother was his Mom - presumably not?  I'm 30 and I wouldn't want to handle a baby for exactly this reason, I don't think I'm qualified.  And, from what I can understand, he didn't want to handle the child either.

I don't have any reason to believe he did it on purpose.  I do understand that not having a strong emotional connection (it's not his kid, or at least the article implies it) and not having proper training makes you quite unfit to be working with small children.  Being agitated and those things certainly doesn't help.

My Mom slammed the car door on my hand and broke my finger.  She was angry at the time, she was late for work, she had to drop us off at home first, money was tight, blah, blah, blah....but she didn't INTENTIONALLY hurt me.  It was an accident that happened, possibly as a result of her attitude and her being in a rush.  That doesn't make her a bad parent - she immediately took me to the ER.  LOTS of parents have accidentally dropped their children too - remember the TSA video (assuming that was legit).  1 second is all it takes.

If he did it on purpose (he claims he didn't) - sure that's horrible.
If he has a history of doing things - absolutely.

But if he's just stupid 20 year old who doesn't have any business being around babies who was changing some crying crap-factory because some old lady was yelling at him and he did it wrong, hurt the kid and immediately notified the appropriate people.....that's a normal person making a horrible mistake.

Article says the kid cried every time he changed the diaper. My theory is he resented having to do it and liked to make the baby feel pain whenever we did it and this time it resulted in injury. I hope he gets what is coming to him. Also, I would bet anything he is horde. Those guys are all assholes.

It depends on how much heart he put into reciting the story for his daughter.

If he was concentrating on his daughter to the point that his game suffered, then that's very sweet. But if he kept playing well and sounded almost robotic, then that would be pretty sad.

If he did both well, then he is, in the parlance of the mid '00s would call "a BOSS."

19 month old and 5 week old here and same story.  The only thing the xbox gets used for is the occasional DVD for the 19 month old

Seriously, that wasn't a clue? Grandma probably couldn't wait to tell DCF and the cops how the kid cried whenever he changed it. So she was concerned, but not concerned enough to change a shiatty diaper.


My 5 week old doesn't just cry when I change him but rather screams like a cat being killed with a screwdriver.  Doesn't matter who is changing him.  The other baby was always cool so it's hard to judge based off just that.

Tough spot though for anyone with anger management issues to deal with babies.  I am an angry farker myself and have to expend an inordinate amount of energy making sure that I stay that one instantaneous reaction away from a fark headline.  I am sure there are many more like me but for sure you just have to stay as calm as you can

Why waste a bullet? Use a cattle prod directly to the temple.

Seriously though, I hope this guy can eventually rehabilitate and lead a relatively normal life.. far, far away from children; though if he's still immature enough to accidentally BREAK A BABY'S LEG at his age, then... well, with the law of averages, some people are going to be total pieces of shiat.

What a farking asshole. I only game when shes asleep or someone else is watching her (wife, when family stops by to see her, ect). Even warned my brother in law who is expecting with his wife in Feb. that when his daughter comes, he will need to switch from online games to games he can pause. This guys in serious need of multiple cock punches.
