Megan's Law: Protection or Privacy (Issues in Focus) Reviews
This is an excellent, well-researched book about a compelling subject-Megan's Law and other similar laws designed to protect America's children. It sensitively tells the story of the families of murdered children all over the country and how they handled their loss. It writes insightfully about the history of the sex offenders involved in an attempt to understand why they turned out the way they did. A helpful chapter, called Teaching Children to Watch Out For Themselves includes tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The book provides thoughtful coverage of a controversial law, why it was written and what its critics have to say about it.
Although this book is informative, it gives a biased look at the issues of Megan's Law. The book focuses solely on child molesters and does not talk about the consequences the law has on other sex offenders, like people convicted of statory rape. Opposing Viewpoints Sexual Violence is a much better source for unbiased information.
