Imagine yourself in a scenario like that of 'The Purge.' For whatever reason (perhaps to keep crime levels down, giving people a chance to get their 'frustrations' out), the government has decided to make any crime one commits legal. During this 12 hour period, you can pretty much do ANYTHING you want without getting caught, including murder.
The question is: Would you commit a crime? Would you steal, kill, etc?
If yes, then you'd have to ask yourself: was the only thing stopping you from doing such things the law?
If all criminal activity became legal for 12 hours, would you commit a crime? Watch

Yes. And yes, in some cases the law is what keeps society in check. And for good reason too! I am glad the law is there for such things.

The law will always exist. if you kill someone then in the absence of a police force or court system the victim's family will likely come after you. Furthermore some crude vigilante system would end up forming. Not worth the risk to kill that guy I hate or rob a bank imo. Best to leave the country and come back the next day when things are safer.
