Brits in Uproar Over Pedophile Satire
Controversy overshadows debate on new child protection law
A televised satire on pedophilia in Great Britain has exploded into a controversy likely to overshadow government attempts this week to tighten laws protecting young children from sexual predators.
The controversy is likely to intensify debate on Sarah's Law, the proposed British equivalent of Megan's Law in the United States. The American law was prompted by the 1994 murder of Megan Kanka by a convicted sex offender who was living across the street.
