    like the movies indeed. apparently there have been some "threats" on social media of a purge type event in some cities. I wouldn't take it to heart but it never hurts to be prepared. you never know what one idiot on the internet could start.

    Mr. Brown,
    I live in Louisville, KY and the Purge stuff is all over the place. There is one thing I can tell you for sure, if anybody attempts to kick in my door, rob me or hurt my family.............I'm the one who's gonna being doing the purging. My house would be the wrong one to kick in.

    But in all reality, I think its mostly a social media myth but at some point you have to start wondering if people don't create a self fulfilled prophecy with the anxiety it is causing some folks in the community. People of all ages are talking about it here locally and law enforcement is saying they are prepared and have beefed up for the weekend.

    I say bring it on!!

    Seems like fake hype to get free promotion for an upcoming movie........

    I live in Florida and I think it may be somewhat true. Yesterday when I was chopping overgrowth with my Gelbu, some teen thugs came walking around in a group with sticks yelling and cussing. Course nothing happened. I think they realized that a twig ain't gonna do much to 5160 steel.

    Edit: Just read the report. Lol that everything legal is too cheesy to believe. Riots I believe. Legal crimes? Nope

    Lamestream media eats this stuff up. The locks on my doors are not for my safety.

    Haven't seen it but it sounds like hype. I hope no one would be stupid enough to follow something like that. Keyword hope.

    I am just glad that I live in a rural area. I think if something like that is going to happen it will be a lot closer to the cities. A bunch of want to be thugs wouldn't stand much of a chance out here. Hopefully its just people blowing smoke.

    Interesting concept for a movie but terribly done.

    I am with you guys and I like to think better of the masses but I have seen some stupid stuff that I never thought would happen, happen.

    Be careful out there.

    the best trick the devil ever did was convince people he did not exist.

    And yet they released a second one apparently. Although, according to IMDB, it was released last month, so this shouldn't be a marketing campaign for that one either. I'm sure there are still enough freedom loving Americans in KY that it should go too far down there, if it actually even happens. Other areas, I'm not too familiar with. In some cities, possibly more prone to this, I'm sure it wouldn't seem far from "business as usual".
