Megan’s Law

 On July 27, 1994, 7-year-old Megan Kanka was coaxed into a known pedophile’s house with the promise of seeing a new puppy. He then raped and killed her. As a direct result, Megan’s Law was signed into law on Oct. 31, 1994. There has been much controversy and many court challenges to this law due to questions about its constitutionality. Some praised the law, yet civil rights activists claimed it was enacted in a wave of public outrage and that it labels people who pose little danger to society as dangerous. Those who oppose the law say there is negligible evidence it has done any good. Even so the law has been enacted by all 50 states and the federal government.
