    I think a few wayward miscreants may try something, but law enforcement has been very clear that there will be consequences and repercussions to any and all law breaking done overnight. My daughter is worried about it, too. I told her to not worry, that nothing will happen to her. But just to be on the safe side, seeing as how my little town is pretty high in crime, we'll stay in for the night.

    Besides - I live just outside of Jacksonville. They don't need a Purge night to go balls out crazy in that place. It's an absolute nightmare. Crime is so, so bad there.

    I thought that every Friday night was purge night in Detroit.

    In all seriousness guys, you know this was just some kids that thought it be hilarious to pull some pranks right?

    Well, I don't know a lot about Louisville, other than every time I've ever driven through it, I saw nothing but construction. I do know about Detroit and Jax, and I know that they are both extremely high in crime.

    I would think it would behoove the police departments in both cities to have extra people on duty, just in case. In Jax, people will pistol whip you for $1.

    I live way out in the middle of nowhere. Around here, you pull that **** and you get a bullet in your skull.

    I'm more concerned for the people that do live in those areas. Areas that also happen to have strict gun control laws, which rules out self-defense in the event that a 'Purge' actually does happen.

    To the bolded: same here. That being said, people who live in urban areas need to be aware of just how crazy things can get, and decide what they would do if the shtf. Not giving any thought to these things is just not wise. Human are the best thing we got going, and can easily be the worst, if stress levels reach a certain point. There is more than one reason I live in the country, and this is one of them.

    Purge, smurge. Never happen. Who is doing the purging? Who organized it? Twelve kids sitting around smoking reefer? It won't happen in Louisville or anywhere else.


    Yeah, I can see it now:

    "Where are you going, Larry?"

    "It's Friday night in Louisville, I'm going out to purge and sh*t."

    "It's only 7.15 PM, you moron. The purge doesn't start until 8.30!"

    "What can't I start my lawlessness now? I'm all dressed for it and got a few places picked out. Who says I can't go now?"

    "The purge rules say lawlessness doesn't start until 8.30 and you have to be finished with your lawlessness by 6.30 tomorrow morning."

    "You mean after 6.30 AM I have to be lawful?"

    "Yep, those are the rules."

    I agree. If the events in Ferguson aren't showing people just how testy things are getting, there is just no hope for anybody.

    You know, this isn't the first time you've had some rioting or looting...

    So.... who exactly is supposed to be doing this "purging", and who do they want to purge?

    How many of those riots were met by a small army? Not only are the Ferguson riots highly political motivated, unlike most riots which are mindless flash mobs, but they are being met by an extreme version of what they were rioting about to begin with. Namely an out of control, unaccountable, militaristic police force.
