The Real Life "Purge" To Take Place In Oklahoma On August 30, 2014
Police in Oklahoma are investigating claims that a real-life "Purge" will take place in Oklahoma on August 30. Flyers claiming that all crimes, including murder, will be legal from 7pm on August 31, to 7am on August 31, are being spread around. Authorities are now using an intelligence gathering network to help monitor the situation. In response to the police, the people behind this alleged purge claim that they will simply change the date to avoid the police. Police do not think there is a threat at this time but are monitoring the situation. The creators of the website, Snopes, claim that the whole thing is a hoax.
