A Kindergartner in Mobile, Alabama was forced to sign a contract by school officials saying that she would not try to harm other people or commit suicide after she drew something that resembled a gun using a crayon.
Officials claim that the young girl also pointed the crayon at another child and said “pew, pew!”
The girl was eventually sent home to her parents after school officials had subjected her to a test designed to evaluate individuals for suicidal thoughts.
The girl was then forced to sign a homicide/suicide contract that stipulated she should tell an adult if she was having thoughts about killing someone else or herself.
The document contained words that “she’s never even heard,” according to the girl’s mother, who wasn’t informed of the situation until after the fact.
“Mommy, daddy, what is suicide?” Elizabeth’s mother says the girl asked when she returned home from the school.
According to the mother, the officials at E.R. Dickson Elementary also recommended that the child be sent for analysis with a psychiatrist, advice that the mother says she has simply ignored.
The story represents another idiotic over the top zero tolerance case where a child, barely older than a toddler, has been punished for displaying a creative mind.
Scores of cases across the country have seen children as young as 4 or 5 being suspended, or worse, sometimes for just talking about weapons. Several students have even been branded as “terroristic” for simulating firing a gun with their fingers, or bringing plastic toys to school.
Cases include the infamous Hello Kitty bubble gun incident, the miniature lego gun school bus massacre, the plastic toy soldier, holding a gun on a cup cake catastophe, and the perilous pencil pointing ‘pow powers’ of Virginia.
