Posted on 08/19/2014 6:07:56 AM PDT by Citizen Zed
Effingham city police had no instances of vandalism or worse to report from last night, the night a "purge" was supposed to befall the community.
A Facebook post we received Saturday night or early Sunday morning indicated a number of communities, including Effingham, would be involved in a purge where lawlessness occurs for a period of time, based on a movie released in recent months. In the movie, though, the lawless period was allowed by authorities. That wasn't the case in Effingham, where law enforcement officials are treating vandalism done Sunday night and early Monday as criminal damage to property and were ready to make sure any mischief last night would be dealt with.
If you have information on the spray painting that was done Sunday night, please phone Effingham City Police.

Effingham?? Where the Eff is Effingham? Next door to Nottingham??
About 100 miles east north east of Ferguson.
But I swear that movies, music, and video games do not in any way influence anyone.
One of my biggest peeves here on FR. When posting an article a dateline would be convenient. Even a note in the Keywords section as to location of the story. Journalism 101.
Amen & ditto!
Ha yah we drive to St. Louis pretty frequently and always have to go through Effingham...east of St. Louis a bit in Illinois..
