Louisville police respond to ‘The Purge’ threats

A flier for a proposed “Purge” in Louisville is getting the attention of the FBI, local police departments, and even Jefferson County Public Schools.

In the movie “The Purge” and its sequel everyone in the nation is allowed to commit any crime for 12 hours with no ramifications.

The horror movie has been hit at the box office but recently a flier about a purge that’s coming to the Louisville area Friday evening has become a real nightmare.

People on WKYT’s Facebook page are asking if it’s a hoax or something they should legitimately be concerned about while in Louisville.

The reaction is so large that police have gotten involved. Louisville Police say they aren’t sure if it is a hoax or a real threat, but they’re going to be prepared either way.

“Due to circumstances that have trended nationally in regards to flash mob violence, in light of what occurred this past spring here, we realize that these things can occur in an instance,” said Louisville Police Sgt. Phil Russell.

While police aren’t being specific on their tactics this weekend, a new 28 camera system put in place after the mob violence last spring is something police will use to monitor any suspicious activity.
