  • Teen violence in schools

    I see violence in my children when thy watch violent movies of TV shows like :the walking dead. Media violence with TV's is influencing the children and the above their age level. Kids watching rated R movies and thy are acting like the vilest movie charters and saying bad words.

  • I stronly agree!!!!!!!

    It is a bad idea. People are becoming too violent. Today some one at our school slammed someone else's head against a brick wall he did this because he thinks that it is just fine because people on the video game do it. Kids are becoming too violent!!!Nothing more has to be said!

  • I strongly believe that T.V networks should not allow T.V Violence to be aired on T.V

    -IT teachers people especially young children, bad influential words and actions. For example, they could learn cussing words which could be used in front of others when they are upset or mad. Which could lead them into a bad situation

    Actions. T.V airs drugs and other substances that are not good for your health. They use drugs and make it seen amazing or great. However using these drugs will make you violent, think rashly, depressed, and addicted

  • Yes it does

    The media is obviously not 100 per cent to blame but I would say that it does affect it quite a lot! Kids shouldn't be able to buy games such as Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty as these really may influence how they look at the world. Even stupid adverts on the tv could push a kid over the edge and make them think that they can just go out and beat any randomer up! Its not fair!

  • The person chooses violence.

    Every night on the news there are reports about murders, wars, and rapes. But the news isn't the only place where people encounter violent or aggressive behavior. Driving home from work, people get cut off and cussed at on a daily basis. At school, children fight over who will be the first in the lunch line. On the street, people get pushed out of the way if they are not walking fast enough. The list could go on and on and on. The point is that humans exhibit aggressive behavior on a regular basis. However, does anyone know why people display these behaviors? Why do certain people seem more aggressive? Is there just one thing that controls when and how aggressive someone becomes? These are all questions that researchers have been addressing for many years. In fact there has been quite a debate over what causes people to be aggressive. However, in order to try to understand where aggression may stem from, you must understand how aggression is defined as well as all of the possibilities that may cause it.

  • Teens will mimic what's shown on tv

    A few years back some kid saw a violent episode on corri and killed his mum the same way and set fire to the house and saved his little brothers lie . Now the boy who did that is in prison and the little brother is either adopted or up for adoption.

  • The media cause violence !!!!!!!

    To say media is a hundred percent to blame is too drastic, but it does play a role on the influence of society. I believe that there are those who buy into the glorification of massacres and mass murders, and it triggers a need to copy-cat such events. News outlets, for competitors sake, tend to focus too much on events like the Oklahoma bombing and Columbine. While tragic, these tragedies trigger copy-cat events. Common sense might tell you that to exposure to violence will result in violent acts, but media isn't the only violence we see.

  • Yes, it really does.

    When people see and hear about current violent or bad occurrences, they want to commit those crimes as well or mock them. Media places discreet and private leads in an investigation out to the public and than those people have access to collect information. Many crimes committed are from the acts of others and from a influential aspect people will add onto those wrong doings.

  • Of Course it Does!

    Monkey see monkey do! Whenever little kids see people on movies like Indiana Jones or star wars, all they want to do is pick up some random object and swing it around like their arm is spazzing or something! Whenever my little 7 year old brother watches THE KARATE KID, he starts doing all of these weird, "imitation" karate moves and ends up slamming into a wall and hurting himself.

  • News outlets should take some responsibility

    To say media is a hundred percent to blame is too drastic, but it does play a role on the influence of society. I believe that there are those who buy into the glorification of massacres and mass murders, and it triggers a need to copy-cat such events. News outlets, for competitors sake, tend to focus too much on events like the Oklahoma bombing and Columbine. While tragic, these tragedies trigger copy-cat events. Common sense might tell you that to exposure to violence will result in violent acts, but media isn't the only violence we see. It's in everyday life, no matter which path you walk, you will encounter troubling settings, from when we are toddlers facing bullies on the playground, to our everyday life aggressors. News media will scare you into worrying about school shootings and terrorists in such a way that it distracts you from the other bullies that are controlling the way you live. If you ask me, being human in any society like ours makes us violent. Other media-rich countries have no shortage of mass killings and violence. It's our need to survive. Media just teaches us ways in which to do it.

  • Violence Existed Before Media

    People have always been violent. It's fact. The media may have an effect on kids/teens, but it is NOT negative. It makes them realize that doing violent things are bad, and will DIScourage them from being violent. Violence is caused by human emotion, and the... Um... Changes teens go through may cause them to be slightly more violent.

  • Media is not to cause.

    If media causes violence then does it also cause love and happiness. You can't blame media for one thing but not for another. There are many reasons for violence like stress, socioeconomic status, change in life, mental deficits and many other things but media is not the one to blame. The media can't force a person to pick up a gun and do a drive-by shooting, or go beat someone up on the street because they look like a villain on their favorite tv show.

  • The person chooses violence

    Every night on the news there are reports about murders, wars, and rapes. But the news isn't the only place where people encounter violent or aggressive behavior. Driving home from work, people get cut off and cussed at on a daily basis. He list could go on and on and on. The point is that humans exhibit aggressive behavior on a regular basis. Media is not responsable for how people act. The computer cannot load a gun for you.

  • Violence in media does not cause real life violence, as a matter of fact it can decrease real life violence.

    Violence in media can Actually satisfy our hunger for violence because it shows violence and it makes us satisfied in our bloodlust. Not just that but we choose to be violent and if they had a traumatizing expirence they might not be able to control their actions. That is all I have

  • Violence has always been apart of us.

    How can you say that media causes violence when people have always fought and killed each other over things as small as the color of their skin or the belief of their gods. Without violence and people being aggressive our species never would have survived to become what it is do day if violence wasn't a part of who we are why would things like the gladiatorial games or the holocaust ever happened. These are just one of many massacres that happened in place that did not have the violent media we have to day and you can just say that Romans and Germans where uneducated they controlled some of the greatest empires to ever exist.

  • Did call of duty cause the crusades?

    Violent media doesn't encourage school shootings, theft, or Copy cats! People who enact things they have seen on the media are already fairly psychologically damaged. If anything media helps reduce violence, what happens to the murderer at the end of most shows or games? They are arrested or killed, that doesn't encourage people to re-enact - it warns them not to attempt it!

  • Ert tr et

    Media plays the role of inspiration, rejuvenating people's calmness, illustrating evil just like it did to the boston guys. Every man can do the opposite of what he is doing today. It takes an inspiration for a human being to undo good deeds. When people get frustrated by some socioeconomic conditions, the society is in danger. They can carry out just any kind of frustrated act. But this can be avoided at times when the environment is positive. But when media portrays the very negative inspirations, they easily get to abide. That is why when men are frustrated they take to the streets, if it does not work, they use the gun .

  • Media doesn't make you violent.

    I've played video games all my life and I'm 18 and I have played some very violent video games and it has never made want to rip someones head off or shoot up a school. It all depends on the person in case, their are some people who are just not their all the way in the head and anything could set them off their are over 10 million gamers in the United States alone if not more and you can only find a few cases where video makes kids violent then you can'y just blame that alone, their has to be other X-factors involved. The proportion itself is maybe 10 to 10 million.
