We've posted many cases here of fathers who got pissed off because the crying baby interrupted their video game. But a video game that actually makes severe child abuse into an amusement? What is left of our civilization is totally going down the tubes....
Dad is identified as KALIQ MANSOR. No mention of the mother.
Search term 'father hates infant' found on computer of Metzger dad charged in baby's death

Evidence in the case of a Metzger man accused of killing his 11-week-old son shows that Internet searches on his computer centered on child abuse for weeks leading up to the baby's death.
Court records show the Internet history on Kaliq Mansor's computer in the two months before the death included searches and web hits such as "father hates infant" and "How do I stop abusing my baby," as well as a downloaded video game that involves abusing children.
Mansor's defense attorney is asking a Washington County judge to suppress the evidence on the grounds of unconstitutional search and seizure.
Mansor, 34, was arrested days after the June 13, 2011, death of his twin son, Bryan. He remains jailed on 10 counts including murder by abuse, first-degree assault and first-degree criminal mistreatment in the baby's death. He is also charged with assaulting Bryan's twin brother. He has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
Mansor called 9-1-1 on the afternoon of June 12 last year, reporting that Bryan wasn't breathing. Mansor told police he was feeding Bryan a mixture of baby formula and "liquid baby vitamins" that turned the formula brown, according to court records. He reportedly said that Bryan started coughing and expelling a brown liquid from his nose, so he turned the baby over, shook him and smacked him on the back.
Bryan's eyes appeared "fixed" and "droopy" and his breathing became "very much labored," Mansor told the detective. While the baby took a breath once every minute or two, Mansor went online to research "what he should do," according to records. After 15 minutes passed, the baby's condition wasn't improving, and Mansor dialed 9-1-1.
Detectives served a search warrant and seized four computers, among other items, from Mansor's home that night. They sent the computers for examination to the Northwest Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory, according to court records. Forensic examiners noted specific Internet activity during the time Mansor said he was online prior to calling 9-1-1.
At 2:08 p.m., the report says, Mansor searched for "11 week old baby pulse no breathing."
At 2:14 p.m., he searched "baby not breathing strong pulse."
And seconds later, "when to call 911." He called 9-1-1 at 2:20 p.m., according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
Emergency responders took Bryan to the hospital, where doctors told police Bryan was brain dead. Bryan was diagnosed with shaken baby syndrome, according to court records.
Detectives also asked the lab to investigate Internet use related to child abuse, without a time frame. The forensics report shows that between April 19 and June 9, 2011, the computers' Internet history includes many searches and visits to web pages related to child abuse.
According to the report, information was accessed on state child abuse law, "newborn abuse," infant injuries, shaken baby syndrome and therapy for abusers, among other related information. The report cites specific searches and web hits, including "father hates infant," "How do I stop abusing my baby," and "Parents of Newborn Baby Accused of Horrific Abuse."
The lab also found a game called "Candyvan" had been downloaded on one of the computers. According to the report, the game is a "simple DOS-based program where the protagonist drives around in a van/bus/ice-cream truck, picks up 10 children, and abuses them (physically and/or sexually) while trying to avoid attention and the police." Certain player actions correspond in the game to words such as, "You throw the kid to the ground and kick until there's a pool of blood on the floor."
The report shows the game was saved to a download folder with the username "kaliq" and played.
Defense attorney Russell Barnett has filed a motion to suppress the evidence, arguing that the search of Mansor's computers was unconstitutional. The motion says the lack of specificity in the search warrant yielded a broad, exploratory search that invaded Mansor's privacy. Barnett argues police lacked probable cause for delving into so much of Mansor's personal digital information.
"The warrant issued here authorized a general rummaging into a very large area of defendant's private things (and perhaps those belonging to his wife) and resulted in an invasion of privacy interests that was not intended by the magistrate," the motion says.
Citing state and federal constitutional rights, the defense asks the court to suppress any evidence the search produced. "
The taint of the general warrant poisoned all evidence in its wake, requiring all subsequently obtained information, including forensic examinations completed by authorities, to be suppressed," the motion says.
Judge Donald Letourneau is scheduled to hear motions in the case Aug. 10.
