The Purge: Fantasies of Vengeance

I am very close to Sanford, Florida right now and I was trying to feel out on Twitter if the Zimmerman verdict may devolve into some kind of riot or mob vigilante situation and I kept seeing the horror movie The Purge referenced in relation to Zimmerman. The movie holds a certain violent romance, especially in younger people, and appears to be a way they can fantasize about bringing street justice to a man they feel has just gotten away with murder. It's pretty amazing and a little disturbing how much it is referenced in relation to this case: https://twitter.com/search/realtim…
