For those who did not see the Purge movies this the premise: A new oppressive government called the New Founding Fathers came to power in the US. They
decided to make all crime legal including murder for 12 hours once a year.. They thought this because they believe that people have repressed negative
emotions and by allowing it to explode for one day, then they will not commit crimes for the rest of the year. However, the condition is this: They
cannot use weapons such as explosive devices and they cannot take out government officials. Also emergency services such medical, fire, and police
services will be unavailable until the Purge ended.
The real intention of the government however, is to have undesirables (poor, elderly, disabled etc) kill each other off and reduce their population.
One interesting thing in the movies was the rich were rarely victims of the crimes thanks to them being able to afford security forces.
