This paper explores the correlation between viewing violence on television and violent behavior. Specifically, it looks at the problem of teen violence and how violent television shows may be one of the factors promoting the violence. Some of the methods promoted for combating teen violence are discussed, and different views on the issue, including the views of the author of the paper, are presented.
From the Paper:"The United States is plagued by the never-ending crimes committed by teenagers that not only tear the family unit that holds the society together but also creates fear amongst others. The crimes that are committed include guns, gangs, sex and drugs. Violent crimes have become a major source of concern for many citizens in the United States. There are several reports and surveys that indicate that there has been a decline in violent crimes in the country but this decrease has been compensated with an increase in the national prison population. Ex-prisoners commit the most violent crimes. The authorities have developed many programs to counter-act crimes through gun control legislation, reform programs, victim rights awareness, but these programs have done little to eradicate violent crime. In this paper I will try to stage the views on this issue along with my own views."
