Link to story here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/somerset/6538371.stm And here, a warning from Barnardo's that these trials may actually endanger more children: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6540749.stm Personally, I think the warnings about vigilante groups are somewhat unfounded. There have been very few incidents in my home state, where Megan's Law has been in place for years. As far as sex offenders going underground? I don't know how many are untracked in my home state, or whether or not the Megan's Law database affected their decision to go underground, so that's a no-call. Thoughts?
