    The Purge: How would you deal with this kind of situation?

    I guess this goes in here since it involves a family in a house, during a 12hr period of no emergency help for one night a year.

    I assume most would stay home, but I'm sure a few guys would go out and try to help others maybe?

    I would get a group of like minded folks together and try to help who I could. A life saved is a life lived.

    Thumbs down

    OK I just now watched the vid.

    I would gear up and fortify my position.

    No prisoners.
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    I would hunker down only cause I have family, so that is my poll answer. Yet if I could gather a group of 6-12 guys I would go out and save a lot of the homeless or those who get caught after dark. Like a mother who has no car trying to make it home from the bus stop.

    Funny how the kid asked his parents "how come you guys don't kill anyone" lol.

    There people out there who would welcome this so they can go after people they do not like. 8pm to 8am I suppose this takes place during that time. Maybe 6/7pm-6/7am.

    Until my girls came along, I would have found out how good the army trained me, now I would lock the place up and will not say what would happen to anyone getting through!

    Hmm. I'm hoping you've lived or at least visited Detroit before. If not, maybe don't make such callus statements?

    Interesting concept. I'd definitely go see this movie. I hope they show what people are doing instead of just focusing on the guy getting in the house and what happens afterwards.

    What I would do? Hunker down. Nobody in, nobody out.

    And Hollywood has the guts to promote the disarming of America while creating such reels of socially degrading celluloid. What incredible hypocrites.

    Damned if I'll put out so much as a penny to see this kind of garbage.

    The premise looks absurd but I love Lena Headey! Her presence makes almost anything worth a watch. I guess to answer the hypothetical [if absurd] question, I'd probably hole up in my house and lock the doors. I'd be cocked & locked and ready to rock! Probably gather all the family into one place, but only after making sure I was on their good side!
