Many of us are at least familiar with the movie(s) about “The Purge.” The premise of these disgusting horror films is that, for a period of time, all crime is legal – no holds barred – no restrictions at all. Everything and everyone is fair game, from petty theft to murder and everything in between.
Personally I think it takes a rather sick mind to imagine such a thing, and an even more disturbed individual(s) to make it into a movie. And it doesn’t say much of those who spend money to view it (them). But that’s a discussion for another day.
This is about the coming real-life “Purge.” Cities like New York, who recently enacted “no bail” laws, have seen a drastic increase in crimes and multiple repeat offenders.
And instead of recoiling at the prospect, other cities and States are pondering following suit.
It’s why we conservatives often speak of slippery slopes – because this is the way it starts.

New York’s crime laws imploding: 7 insane prison release stories
