WHY HAS THERE RECENTLY BEEN AN INCREASE IN VIOLENT CRIME?

I feel that violent crime is increasing because children/people are being exposed to more violence than others. This happens in more than one way. One is vidiogames, as many new games are VERY violent for young people to be playing e.g Call of Duty, Fortnite Esc... Another way is movies, because some young people stretch the age limit to far, to things like 18 rated movies when they are 12. My final way is the news/media. The news and media gets around quickly, and many children are listeng and watching teribble things in the world, possibley not deliberatley but because parents wanted to see the news.

    I think it is because more and more kids are watching the news and want to start a gang of violent Crime.

      Is there any evidence for this. I don't think any evidence exists which links the reporting of violent crime and it's increase.

    There has been an increase because people that are in gangs then they would obviously want to be like them. Also if you were raised with someone who was sent to jail or abused you,you would obviously turn out like them 😡

      Is this obvious? Or are we making an assumption about how people's lives might turn out?
