A woman checks her online Facebook account at an Internet cafe in Jakarta

Mom left her son in a bathtub for 10 whole minutes while she plays Facebook game. Arrest affidavit shows that State of Colorado police officer arrested Shannon Johnson, 34 y/o mom,when she told the authorities the reason why her son drowned in bathtub few months ago. She said that she left her son in the bathtub unattended while she was playing "Cafe World" - a famous Facebook.

She only checked in on him once over the course of a ten-minute period and justified it by saying that she felt "her son was preternaturally independent, and simply wanted to be alone."

Johnson rushed to check on her son only to find him "lying sideways, with his face submerged." once she noticed that the bathroom became so silent.

Now Johnson is facing charges of child abuse resulting in neglectful death. Below are some furious readers' comments about the incident:

"TCINTERNET" - is it awful of me to hope that someone in prison makes this idiot wish she had never been born? This is the most infuriating case of child neglect that I've ever seen.

"MMCGILLVRAY' - As someone who has a brand new baby, this makes me so sick. I cannot imagine ever leaving my daughter in the bathtub alone. And to do it because I was playing on Facebook? I could never live with myself if something happened to her.

"BUNFOO" - This woman is just stupid. And it makes me sick that real, non-fictional, adult people can do things like this. On a side note, she probably has a ton of coins or whatever the hell to scoring system is on Cafe World.
