Deleted the Minority Report example. It was getting Nattering, and it really isn't an example of this trope. The very premise of the film and book was that by knowing your destiny you can change it. Agatha says as much herself. "You still have a choice," she says.

The point of Precrime is to predict murders and then stop them before they happen. Chief Anderton even makes the choice not to kill Leo Crow when he has the opportunity, even though the precogs predicted that he did. That makes this an example of Screw Destiny.
