    All sorts of mayhem. I don't recall their characters limiting themselves.

    And yes, amazing film.

    On Star Trek TNG it was called 'Festival'...though that was 24 hours long.

    So some movie (based on a Star Trek episode) could get people to riot?



    I wouldn't doubt it (on a small scale).


    Though, like most things like this, it's probably just hype.

    But why "The Purge?" Why not choose "Matrix night" for instance? Reality would impose itself with less damage to the civilians.

    The influenced from the movie would eventually get it (through law enforcement) that life is not a movie. If it happens hopefully it does at the cost of least number of victims.

    People need to stop trying to turn a bunch of thugs that are rioting and looking into some sort of saints. All you are doing is ignoring the ones that aren't acting like petulant two year old.

    What exactly do you have a problem with in that picture? The fact their wearing body armor? The armored truck that stores their gear? This stuff is standard issue for SWAT teams... got a problem with them?

    Anyone who thinks these people are being held properly accountable are not paying attention. While yes, I agree that our police need special weapons and tactics to react to certain scenarios, it has become for many police departments the standard reaction to just about anything. SWAT is being used constantly in no-knock raids, breaking doors/walls in the middle of the night to flash bang babies, shoot dogs, and drag the "perp" out into the street, when often times he wasn't the even the person growing the plant in the first place.

    Over the past few decades the militaristic capabilities of police departments has grown exponentially, but accountability and responsibility has plummeted. It's a dangerous combination and I think you know that. When police are firing on citizens less discriminately and with looser ROE than soldiers in afghanistan, something is wrong.

    while i'm sure that's partially true, i also took off on foot when i was there and walked by myself. ran into nothing but cool folks. there were a ton of great independent shops; kind of reminded me of my own town's downtown when i was a kid before all of the huge stores swooped in. everybody i ran into was cool as hell, which was the complete opposite of my previous visit in 2006. the difference is that this time, i was staying with someone who lives there.
