I read the article and I don't think the title is misleading. I assumed from the title that a nurse was attacked but I had to read the article to find out how.

I know, its a fine line but, I'm lead to believe her being a nurse is why she was attacked by the title. Not so. TBH, if the title read............"Girl attacked at nightclub"...........I'd have said "That's the nightlife for ya" and moved on.

It's a way to illustrate how brutal the attack was. Deep down people might feel that she could have done something to "deserve" or at the least "warrant" the attack. When you read that he attacked a nurse, what could a nurse (:saint:) do to warrant an attack?

Same as if you don't report someone as kicking an animal, you report that they were kicking a puppy. It gives an emotional connection to the reader.

Feel bad for the girl, the guy obviously had issues. But a quick thing I want to point out:

Thread title is a bit misleading. The girl was not attacked BECAUSE she was a nurse nor while working. So, in essence, you had a girl at a bar being assaulted (who happens to be a nurse), not a nurse being assaulted. There is a difference. The difference isn't so much that the crime is better/worse but........motivation is different.

I was scanning the articles and replies to find the connection to her being a nurse and the beating. There is none. She was at a club/bar and ran into the wrong guy. It would have gone the same way if she were a McD's worker, an engineer or a teacher.

Well said. I thought when scanning through articles that it was a nurse assaulted on the job, which happens a lot in my area lately.

I think they were trying to show that she was a regular working person- in fact a nurse (who helps others!) and not some crack addict who got in a fight over a debt. The random cruelty of it is more intense.

No it had no bearing on the attack itself, but it makes us angrier because of who she is and the fact that a working gal isn't safe to go out and blow off some steam anymore.

Wow! Simple things that people(me) don't think of, like going to a bathroom in pairs and such. Thanks to all that mentioned it.

I feel for the lady and hope the attacker gets what he deserves...

Makes sense.

Although the crime was horrific, I am certain that society would not have felt the same level of sympathy if the victim had been a prostitute, heroin addict, drifter, bag lady, homeless woman with mental health issues, or other member of the underclass.

A Moroccan National???? A Moroccan creep is more like it! Deport him please! Make him serve some time in prison first though. Yeah he probably followed her into the bathroom to assault her and she tried to defend herself and told him to get out of the woman's restroom. My goodness this is sad.

Ladies take note- this is why we often go to the bathroom in twos- with good reason!

OMG! I don't care if she tried to give him a lap dance topless, begged him into the bathroom herself, there is no excusing what he did to her. Sickening when a perv tries to justify themselves by blaming the victim.:mad:

Let's all be careful, fellow nurses. Better choose public places where there are lots of people around. :nurse:
