A Real-Life 'Purge' Would Kill the Economy and Skyrocket Insurance Premiums

Although it may seem like we’ve been living in a dystopian horror movie for the past three years, things could always be worse. We could be characters in the 2013 horror movie franchise The Purge where overcrowding in American prisons causes the government to enact annual 12-hour periods of “purging” where all crimes (including murder) are legal. 

Luckily we’re not, because murder is scary — even though it would probably be pretty great (for our self confidence) to descend from the combined gene pool of the movie’s stars, Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey.
