Misinformation on Website Led to Killing

How careful we must be...

Michael A. Dodele was murdered due to misinformation on the Megan's Law website. Sure Michael was a convicted rapist but his neighbor, Ivan Garcia Oliver, thought he was a child molester because of what he read on Megan's Law and so he went to Michael's residence and stabbed him to death.

Taking justice into your own hands for any reason is not right. I think Ivan is learning that the hard way...

Now I wonder what will happen on the flip side of the coin with the Megan's Law website. They did, after all, post erroneous information. Will this be shown to have perpetuated the crime? How much more misinformation is posted??
