Killing Nurse?

A case of a nurse who was condemned by a Dutch court because, in a nutshell, she was in the proximity of a number of deaths.

Similar reasoning:

  1. If at your work bicycles are stolen, you're a thief.

  2. If you life opposite of a school, you're a pedophile.

  3. If two cars in your street have bumps, you're a hooligan.

  4. If you live near a red-life district, you're a John.

  5. If you're a pharmacist, you take drugs.

(Even worse, part of the argument was statistics: the chance of these events happening was one in seven billion. Of course, the statistics were flawed, but worse, it's irrelevant. By similar reasoning, everybody who won the lottery twice should go to jail since there is enough evidence of fraud.)
