Did you know that there's an entire debate on whether or not Megan's law is Constitutional? Do you think it is, and why or why not?

I think the scope of the law is too broad. Everyone lumped into the sex offender category really does not deserve the same punishment as far as I'm concerned. A man relieving himself on the side of a dirt road is NOT the same as a child molester. I agree with NotPanicking, it will be the lawmakers' fault if it is overturned.

That is an interesting question. I'd have to agree with NP and sm, here. The law is too broad. I remember checking out the registered sex offenders list in my area, and was surprised at who was on the list--the boy who, at seventeen years of age, had sex with his fifteen-year old girlfriend, for example. It seems extreme. Half of my high school would have been on that list, were parents pressing charges against their daughters' boyfriends at that time. . .
