Supporting Status Quo: Experiencing media violence encourages unstable people to become violent and contributes to the increase in violent behavior. Against the Status Quo: Experiencing media violence does encourage a few unstable people to become violent but it doesn’t contribute to violent behavior as a whole society.
Every show has violence No real family shows TV’s ‘’family hour’’ is no more
Children and teen shootings have increased Violent games lead to violent actions Most ‘’mature’’ games that people play are much more violent than first thought
Necessary Action: Parents have to monitor what their kids watch and play Bans on the selling of mature games to minors have to be enforced Limits have to be set for violence on TV shows
Censorship goes against the first amendment since limitations on media go against freedom of speech Parents have to choose what is acceptable for their kids
Video game violence is unreal The supreme court shouldn’t be able to decide what kids can watch Parents have to teach their kids the right and wrong way to act
There is no direct connection between violent shows to behavior Violence is a natural human behavior
Media violence encourages violent behavior in kids and teens. Media violence has no correlation to violent behavior in teens and kids. I believe media has very little effect on the violence among kids and teens. I think it falls upon the parents, they have to teach their kids how to act, and set good examples by not using violence themselves.
