Violence

 

Violence is part of our society, that is all around us. You
cannot turn on the television without seeing some kind of
violence. You pick up a newspaper, and it jumps out at you.
Is there really more violence than there used to be? Who is
to blame for this increase? I feel that the media is not
responsible for the increase in crimes, but rather they are
now just doing a more thorough job of reporting it. This
increase in reporting thoroughness is due to the
technological advances that have taken place in the last
fifty years. The increase in the reporting of crimes has
frightened many people, making them become highly
unsociable. The media is not responsible for the increase
in crimes. I feel this way, because the television shows
how uncivilized it is to beat someone, for instance take
the Rodney King beating, the media showed how cruel the
police officers were toward Mr. King. In this particular
case it actually spawned violence because of the judicial
system's ruling. The real reason that crimes have increased
is the constantly increasing population, the low standard
of living and the low education level. With the increased
population density the tempers flare much easier. The
people are overcrowded, and feel alone, as a result they
join gangs. The low standard of living is also important,
because this is what causes these people to do just hideous
things as car-jacking and home-invasions. If these people
were educated, then they would probably be employed,
raising there standard of living and lowering the number of
crimes. The number of crimes reported by the media has
increased tremendously, this is probably due to several
factors, these include, the willingness of people to report
crimes has increased and the technology used to report
crimes has also increased. People report crimes more often
now, it is no longer taken that you shouldn't report a
crime if it isn't to serious. There are now ways off
keeping one identity secret. This all relates to
technology. Technology is very important to the media now.
With the use of satellites, a news team in Los Angeles,
California can relay the story to a television station in
Boston, Massachusetts. The picture quality and sound
quality are also much better. With the invention of the
camcorder any person can now be a camera man. This is why
there are so many tapes of motorists being beaten, and the
like. In conclusion, the media is not to be blamed for the
increase in crimes, but rather this increase should be
thought of as something that was meant to be, even without
television this increase was bond to happen sooner or
later.
