Why Boys Don't Have Laws Named After Them

The other day I was noting that every recent child-protection law seems to be named after a girl (Megan's Law, Jessica's Law, Amber Alert, etc.). You would think a few would be named after boys. In fact, I can't think of any — at least here in California.


Anyway, maybe cases like this one are part of the reason why...

From CBS San Francisco:
Antioch police reported a 16-year-old boy, originally the subject of a statewide Amber Alert, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with a Monday barber shop robbery.

Police said the boy, Hasaan Ameer Ford, has admitted his involvement in the robbery, as well as the feigning of his kidnapping.
Dude, not helping our cause here.
