Is it a joke or a real threat?

That’s what police in Louisville, Kentucky are trying to find out after threats of random violence for the weekend are being made on social media mimicking a summer movie.

The film titled “The Purge” and it’s sequel “The Purge: Anarchy” are thrillers that encourage random violence in a 12 hour period, once a year.

While what is being threatened in Louisville could be a prank, police met about and are looking into the threats and they say they are prepared.

“A number of people have reached out to us,” said Louisville Metro Police Department Sergeant and spokesman Phil Russell.
