    Anna Kooiman reported this morning (video above) on an Alabama mother who is speaking out after her five-year-old daughter was forced to sign a "no suicide" contract without her knowledge.

    The incident started when the girl got in trouble at school for apparently pretending a crayon was a gun and "shooting" it at another student.

    The mother, only identifying herself as Rebecca in a report by WPMI-TV in Mobile, said her daughter then had to write her name on a document in which she pledged that she would not kill herself or anyone else.

    "This isn't right. She's five years old. Most of these words on here, she's never heard in her life," said Rebecca.

    Rebecca said school officials want her daughter to see a psychiatrist now.

    Here's more from the report:

    "[They] Asked her if she was depressed now," said Rebecca.

    Without her permission, Rebecca said her child was given the Mobile County Public School Safety Contract to sign stating she wouldn't kill herself or others.

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

    According to state law, minors cannot legally sign a contract.

    Sounds like a "feel good" thing for the school officials.

    Also sounds like another good reason to eliminate any such thing as "TEACHERS UNIONS"! :BangHead:

    Crappy officials/teachers could then be terminated for such stupidity with a whole lot less brouhaha from self-serving legalized extortioners.

    Have no idea how much, if any, a union is involved, but------!!!!:BangHead:

    It sounds like the KGB in forcing a minor to sign an invalid contract. The key word is force. The KGB has to know that the 5 year old can't read or understand a contract. What will the KGB think of next?
