5-year-old forced to sign suicide contract after drawing something ‘resembling a gun’ in class

A furious mother of a 5-year-old girl in Alabama said school officials went way too far when they made the little girl sign a Mobile County Public Safety Contract after making “pew, pew” noises with a crayon.

You can’t make this stuff up, and it gets worse.

The contract states that the girl – again, 5-years old – promises not to do any harm to herself or others.

According to the child’s mother, Rebecca, who spoke with Local15 news but didn’t want the family to be identified publicly, the child was given a questionnaire to evaluate her for suicidal thoughts. 

“While I was in the lobby waiting they had my 5-year-old sign a contract about suicide and homicide,” Rebecca said. 

“They told me she drew something that resembled a gun,” she said. “According to them she pointed a crayon at another student and said, ‘pew pew’.”

The contract was given to the minor child to sign without a parent present. According to Local 15, state law prohibits minors from legally signing a contract.

 Rebecca said that E R Dickson school officials told her the child should get psychiatric help.

The school hasn’t commented on the incident, and may be unable to do so for confidentiality reasons.

If Rebecca’s version of the story is accurate, every mother in the country should rally behind her.
