OKLAHOMA – One of the latest internet hoaxes has some Oklahomans a little scared.
Images circulating on social media warned Oklahomans that a real-life version of the movie “The Purge” was set to take place at the end August.
In “The Purge” films, the government sanctions an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity becomes legal.

If people in Oklahoma did a purge I would be a nervous wreck.
