Laura Cooke asked:
Does anyone have any idea what the chrome color purple denoted in the book? It is mentioned that purples, along with blues and greens, are not allowed at The Straight Path facility, but never says what a purple's crime would have been. It's been bugging me so if anyone has any insight please share!
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[All the googling seems to denote people think red is only for abortion (it's not, it's for murder in general) and purple was for violent crime. But since red is for violent crimes, blue is for child predators, yellow for misdemeanors, and green is for robbers or arsonists, I'm guessing purple is either for sex crimes against adults or white collar-style crimes.
