Violence isn't the answer Even though the Purge would be a chance for people to let out their anger, it's unrealistic. People say the crime rates won't go up, but when you think about it, the crime rates will go up after a few years of having an annual purge. As time goes on families will be losing their loves ones and they'll eventually be sick and tired of it to the point where they will get involved. Just imagine losing a best friend or a family member because some sick twisted person chose to take their anger out on a person instead of a punching bag. Not only that, but crime isn't just murder. People think it's to let anger out and to fix overpopulation issues. Hate to break it to ya, but you'll be waking up to a big surprise when you find all your money gone from the bank after those 12 hours are over.
