    Mother obsessed with computer game let her children live in squalor and left her dogs

    I guess they took into account her unique experiences as a woman offender per the new recommendations on "Eaquality."

    Addicted to a fantasy world: Mother obsessed with computer
    game let her children live in squalor and left her dogs to starve to death

    A mother neglected her three children and let her dogs starve to death because she was so obsessed with a computer game.

    The 33-year-old woman played the Small World game almost non-stop on the internet for months while her children were reduced to eating cold baked beans straight from the tin with their fingers.

    Her home became filthy, with rubbish strewn over the floor and the bodies of her two dogs, a German shepherd and a lurcher, left for two months in the dining room it was revealed.
    The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been given a suspended jail sentence and banned from using the internet by a judge in Kent.

    The horror only came to an end when a neighbour peered through the letterbox and alerted the authorities, Maidstone Crown Court heard.

    The woman's children, aged nine, ten and 13, were badly neglected for six months, said Deepak Kapur, prosecuting.

    When officers arrived at the house in Swanley, Kent, in February the woman told them it was 'in a bit of a mess' They then saw rubbish all over the floors in all of the rooms.

    The woman tried to block officers from entering the dining room and when asked why she replied: 'All right, my dogs are in there. They are dead. I killed them. 'I probably starved them, probably because I have been playing the computer game all the time.'
    She received an invitation from a friend on Facebook to play Small World and had very quickly become hooked.
    The game featuring characters such a wizards, dwarves, orcs and giants is played like a traditional board game but online.
    DWARVES AND ORCS AT WAR


    Small World is an online board game featuring characters such as wizards, dwarves, orcs and giants.
    It can be played independently or through the social networking site Facebook and has a legion of fans who compare it to the popular Dungeons and Dragons
    board game.

    According to the makers, Days of Wonder, players ‘vie for conquest and control of a world that is simply too small to accommodate them all’.

    Players must use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to push the other races off the face of the earth.
    Unlike virtual worlds – where players assume an avatar and interact directly with each other – Small World is played like a traditional board game where you spread out your ‘army’ to take over nearby territories with the aim of taking over the whole board.

    It can be played with friends online, or alone.



    'She started playing initially for an hour aday in late 2009 but since August of that year it had become an obsession to the point where she was only getting two hours' sleep a night,' said the prosecutor.

    'She still managed to feed the children and get them to school but accepted she let everything else go.
    'Afterwards, it became so overwhelming she didn't know where to start.

    'It got to the stage where she only bought food that didn't need cooking.
    ' Allan Compton, defending, said the woman had been a devoted and competent mother until tragedy struck some years ago with the death of her husband from a heart attack.

    'She retreated into this virtual world provided by her laptop computer,' he said.

    'She shut herself off from the outside world.' Mr Compton said the house was now habitable.

    The children had been taken into care, but she hoped to be reunited with them in the future, he said.

    The mother was sentenced to six months' imprisonment suspended for two years, and ordered to do 75 hours' unpaid work.

    She was banned from keeping animals. She had admitted three charges of child cruelty and two of animal neglect.
    Judge Jeremy Carey told her: 'Your life went very badly wrong.
    Your children were badly neglected indeed. There was decay and filth all around.' Judge Carey banned the woman from access to the internet 'to assist you to resist the temptation to return to this virtual world'.
    Look, I feel that she lost her husband. I'm just amazed at how in almost all cases of a woman commiting a crime there are excuses but you will never see the same for a man. Could you imagine a judge telling a man: "Your life went very badly wrong"?

    WTF?

    How about ban her from her kids?

    This is a serious case of neglect and abuse.

    This court system is so corrupt it's not even funny. I'm surprised they don't let all the convicts out of the prison and give them a happy meal.

    I understand that she is grieving but letting your kid have to scavenge for food is just wrong.

    What is happening in UK? Something in the water or poisoning of food? Mustard gas?

    So, child abuse of such degree is dealt with by a suspended sentence. Hmmmmm. Pussy-power.

    75 hours is what it will take to clean her friggin' house.

    It's not better at all. Feminists are just as bad against anti-feminist females.

    Some areas of the UK have dangerous Fluoride in the water supply (fluoridated water, toxic waste added to the water supply which is completely unnecessary) which causes all sorts of serious health problems in the long term. Most of the water supply in the USA and Australia is also fluoridated.

    She should be spayed so she can't have any more kids, then her kids put in a foster home and she should be left to play her game to her heart's content, I remeber whenThe Sims first came out a womenlet her baby die because that her baby that was crying was a baby crying in the game and women have the nerve to say that men are obessed with vid games?.

    Those poor kids, first they lose their father and then this?

    I can't understand why didn't this chick get some bloody help, I mean she was still functional enough to by the kids food so it should have clicked in that shewas having problems and shouldhavegotten some help.
    But then againIhave never been married so I don't know what it would be like to lose a spouse but as was pointed out ofit had been a man in this sittuation he would have been shit canned for life.

    All in all this is just so sad, I hope that the kids and her will get the help that they need.
    When the femanazis tell me it's their way or the highway I tell them to fuck off and die, because at lest the highway leads to new and intresting places, their ways is a dead end.
