    I saw an old movie trailer for the 2013 movie "The Purge" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0LLaybEuzA) the other day and thought it'd be cool to see what PO would do in a similar situation.

    The title of the thread pretty much explains it. What would you do if all Crime was legal for 12 hours? How would this period of time affect the world as a whole? Be creative!

    anyway, I would probably hide like one scared motherfucker. I don't really have it in me to hurt someone, or steal, much less kill.
    I wouldn't participate at all, since I view something like this to be a way to rid the world of the lower class, the poor.
    lower unemployment rate, more red on your hands.

    Man The Purge started off good then went shit.

    I would also hide and stay out of it. 12 Hours is a lot of time and people could do a lot of shit in the period so I believe it would be detrimental to the time after it where people would actually think about why they have this.

    tbh I would stock up on food in the beginning and then hide inside a Best Buy and watch 4 or 5 stolen movies. I'd also steal a toilet so I can poop if need be

    Lmao that movie sounds totally stupid- legalise everything and everyone turns into fucking psychopaths, and that somehow makes the place a utopia for the rest of the year. Ok.

    Anyhow, for the most part I'd expect a whole lot of stealing and looting to occur, some muggings as well. But wanton violence and killing (especially what's depicted in that trailer)? Sure you'd get a bit of it, but not a lot imo. Just because it's legalised, doesn't mean it's any less morally reprehensible, and for a lot of people (not all, obviously), I imagine that would inhibit them from going nuts. Obviously the kind of area you live in would make a pretty big difference.

    Personally, I'd maybe try stealing some games, maybe even a 3DS, and then just keep to myself.

    I guess acquiring something to defend yourself with wouldn't hurt either, but you'd probably just find something lying around home anyway

    Well, generally people want to avoid dying or living with the guilt of doing something they'd jut not be able to forget. Believing that having to capitalize on breaking the law or doing something over the top just shows how they justify being crazy with anarchy being innate.

    well i'd have to agree with that because i don't want to be apart of the evil doing just away from the scary people. but in a world like this you must survive and take advantage of the no rules i mean best buy has great appliances and i can watch tv there all day long w/o much harm and TOILETS are mandatory but then again best buy has a bathroom sooo

    Or you can take something like video games, laptops, food or other appliences and stuff and try to hide within the safety of your home rather than stay at a public place where people are a lot more likely to be.

    If I had 12 hours to do whatever I wanted, I'd probably try to steal a nice sports car, some games from GameStop, probably beat the shit out of a guy that broke my heart, but not kill him, and then just go get some Pringles or some shit before coming home and turning on Netflix.

    It's pretty obvious really. Even if one had the weaponry, fear-inducing attitude or a surveillance protected house, it would bring out too much notoriety and 12 hours is plenty of time for a lot of bad stuff to happen. Stalling out the time would be the best option, though it mostly depends on the place you're living in.

    Probably continue my life normally. It's only 12 hours, 6 of which could be used sleeping. If I come across someone who's out to get me, I have no ethical qualms in blasting the hell out of that person. Stock up on food, musical equipment, get some weapons, and get a car. Also, booby trap my front door.

    I am just going to say I must be a messed up person for what I thought I would do.

    I will tone it down some.

    I would go pick fights with random people. I love fighting.
    I would totally ram people with my truck too. Like if they are also in another vehicle.
    I would burn down my school.
    I would also probably slash peoples tires for shits and giggles.

    I think morals would keep most of us down from say, killing people we dislike just because.

    I'd still probably just hide in my house like a little bitch though, never know when you'll run into people like Beast. Also, pirate all the things!

    I'd most likely hook up with a group of friends and cohorts, forming a vigilante posse ala Robin Hood. We'd try to deal with any major dicks killing or injuring people, but we'd also loot a fair share of supplies to share amongst ourselves.

    And we'd have to play this song:

    First i would go to McDonalds and rob some Ice Cream, Then i would break out some guy from jail and we would go watch a movie or something, play some monopoly, then after the 12 hours are up, i would call the police on the guy and i would demand a reward and get like $5,000 then go buy some stocks, get a million bucks, buy a submarine, and travel the bottom of the ocean.

    I would steal all the poptarts and girl pantsu at walmart.
    Also just pointing out that if crime /was/ legal at a certain time most people would wait until then to do all their non legal stuff. So there would be less crime during the rest of the year then there is now.

    -swarms of mexicans would cross the border
    -are people that murder their families just like oh ukno it was the purge to all their friends? and their friends would b like oh ur so silly m8
    -if takes place during school hours gg
    -allowing assassination of president wat
    -dump all the toxic waste into errything
    -i bet there would be people that hire special guards for things like banks n stuff during this time, mad monies
    -and so on

    I would commit bank fraud and swindle lots of rich people of their money. It would all months in advanced, but all the illegal parts of it would happen during the 12 hours. So, whilst everyone else is hiding playing games in their houses, I would become notorious in history as making their billions from illegal means in that period of time when it was legal and writing bestselling books about it. I would also become a television celebrity out of it. Yeah.

    I'd like to say I'd go on a killing spree murdering anyone who ever praised radical Islam. But it reality, I'd probably barricade myself in my home.
