Megan's Law requires information about registered sex offenders in the United States to be made available to the public. This includes names, addresses, and photographs of the offenders.
This is California's implementation. Click the 'Continue' button at the bottom of the page, tick the term and conditions agreement and 'Continue' again. Now click on the 'Zip Code' button, enter '90016' into the 'Zip Code' box and click on the 'View Map' button. All the blue boxes are where registered sex offenders live! It makes one feel queezy in so many ways. If you want to see what they look like click on the 'View Listing' button.
Can you imagine raising a family in that neighbourhood?
