Never mind the deluge of crazy news this week; there’s always room for more if you have the imagination. Early Saturday morning, #LouisvillePoliceScanner topped Twitter’s trending topics, with #LouisvillePurge also making appearances.
Louisville Police say they’re now investigating a teenager accused of starting “Purge” rumors in the city.
Police also say they did not see a higher crime rate around Louisville Friday night. They did, however, receive a high number of anonymous tips, most of which turned out to be unfounded.
A flier for a proposed “Purge” in Louisville got the attention of the FBI, local police departments, and even Jefferson County Public Schools.
So, what’s a Louisville Purge sound like?
If you live anywhere near where the 'Purge' is happening rn

This Purge rumor is so stupid, I swear to God It's stupid, and if you believe It's real you need to get a life.
