If the Purge was real... Would you participate?

I'm sure everyone knows about the movie, The Purge, and if you don't I'll fill you in.

The Purge was about an annual event that was founded by the country's founding fathers. The thing was that all crime was legal for a few hours in every state in America. Any government assistance such as police were not avaliable during the purge and they were exempt from the purge (meaning nobody could harm them what so ever). Hospitals were closed as well. People who didn't want to purge set out blue flowers (I forgot what kind) to symbolize that they will not participate in the event. It doesn't mean they'll be safe but, its just something they did to let others know. And pretty much everything was closed early.

If this was real would you purge? Why or why not? If so, what would be your weapon of choice?

    • yea those masks criminals wear sometimes are freaky. if i ever dress up for Halloween i'll probably slip on a tony blair mask.

  • I would definitely steal, but i wouldn't murder.

  • I'd rescue all captured animals and burn all fur-farms/circuses/fur stores/labs with animal testing, anything that has to do with treating animals bad, down and wreck everyone getting in my way. And euthanize the people behind the animal-torturing. Yay for ALF.

  • I would probably do it on a impulse to get revenge or something I wouldn't kill or anything u would probably rob something expensive or something along those lines I would def not do something to someone else tho, I might be ok at the time but I am a sucker when it comes to conscious it would eat me up

  • It absolutely does not make sense in the slightest to do it. For crime control or population control. Most people wouldn't out of fear of being killed as well. It would not be like in the movies where there's tons of people doing it. Only absolute crazy people who don't understand the concept that even a little kid could murder them if the kid snuck up behind them with a gun.

  • Honestly I don't get why if such a thing was real why murder would suddenly pop into everyone's head. If it was real my butt would be stealing all the stuff I want and would normally not be able to buy from all my favorite stores. Granted I haven't seen the movie but isn't that pretty much how it is?

    Either way knowing my luck I would probably die -_- lol

  • I would just kill someone who wronged me like 10 minutes before the actual purge starts so I can make sure I'm safe while all the idiots are out on a killing spree and everyone would think that person would have been killed during the purge afterwards 😎 #suchasmartass

  • Honestly I would only if I was able to do one thing. I would set up random traps in front of expensive stores or stuff people would steal from. For people to trigger it and set off an explosions and then rest every 10 minutes. While I'm hidden far under the ground with a video recording it all.

    • If you have the right equipment you don't get killed. Did you watch the movie?
      It's amazing! You have to if you haven't seen it.

    • If you prepare then the chances of dying won't be as high. Yeah you would flat out die if you just go out there and have absolutely nothing to protect you. In the movie there were people literally getting ready to battle. Like sharping knives, cleaning guns, I'm sure people were working out and practicing their stealthy skills before they went out and purged. Just watch the movie! It's pretty good.

  • I wouldn't ! That the craziest idea I've ever heard about !
