This reminds me (mostly because I'm reading it right now) of Barry Glassner's Culture of Fear argument, that we focus on these crazy stories of awful things happening (stranger sexual abuse) when we don't really have a good way of handling the actual societal problem at hand (familial sexual abuse). (I haven't read the whole book yet, so it's possible that Megan's Law is even one example he specifically mentions.)
