In honor of Halloween, I decided to watch The Purge movies and it got me thinking. If crime was legal for 12 hours like in The Purge movies, how could you come out on top? How can you WIN the Purge? The answer? Get rich of course... but how? I put my brain to the test to figure it out! Theorists, things are about to get VERY messy!

    There is a fundamental problem, not with the idea, but the prices. In a purge a there could be an oversupply of organs which will make the prices go down considerably.

    There are a few plot holes in this theory. The prices of these organs are this high because there is very little supply and a lot of demand. With the purge the supply might go though the roof and drastically lowering prices. It is not only you who gets the money from organs, the doctors will likely take up 90% of the proceeds so at best you would make a couple thousand dollars(which is not worth going out into the public on such a night). Also, in real life most people will barricade themselves and have a moral code so they wouldn't murder. The only ones being murdered will probably be in their homes so bodies won't be as abundant in places accessible to the general public (exception being the murders getting murdered).

    The Purge is just government selfishness and laziness. The rich upper class people and government officials have special privileges and heightened security while the poor are left behind to be battered and murderer in brutal ways, all to lower crime rates throughout the year and lower homelessness and poverty. Its sick and I know that in another universe where this thing exists, I'll most definitely be dead.

    Rigged Gambling - Casino's would be shut and heavily protected. Insider Trading - The domestic market would be shut and it would still be illegal on foreign market. Also, your plan also doesn't work, because there the organ would need to be found, harvested and fitted within the 12 hours. And with the utter carnage and chaos going on (and emergency services suspended) theres going to be very, very limited healthcare actually working. Any hospital facility is going to be locked down with high paid (and lethal force using) security to protect the millions and millions of drugs sitting inside them. That organ is still illegally obtained, so it would not be able to be used after the deadline.

    How about breaking people out of jail and setting them up with the identities of those that died that night? The dead will stay dead (so technically a victimless crime) and those that broke out aren't those people anymore *legally* so if they are careful, they aren't true fugitives of the law. Give some of the living a new start and new life
