Comment on the following statement:
| Violence on TV and crime in society are clearly related. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that violence on TV and crime are related, whereas others do not agree. They think that they are not relevant.
I think that violence on television and crime have direct correlation. First of all, if a person watches a lot of movies with violence scenes they start thinking about it a lot. It is a scientific fact that mind conceptions sooner or later turn into actions. Second, there is a saying, “Similar attracts similar.” so if one’s mind is merged with crime images, such a person tends to commit a crime in real life.
At the same time there are people who say watching valance scenes on TV does not effect real life. These are two separate processes without mutual influence.
I cannot agree with the opinion mentioned above for a particular reason. In many cases people separate what they watch and what they do, nevertheless, if a weak or not a psychologically stable person gets overdosed with such watching, he or she has more chances to commit a crime.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there is an old and good saying, “Control your thoughts because one day they will turn into actions.” I strongly believe that it is a true saying because of many people's experience in this matter. After watching too much violence in TV shows they became more aggressive, which might cause them to commit a crime. Personally, I am sure that it is better to restrict yourself from watching violence on TV.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight crime on TV might not seem directly connected with crime in society but in actual fact judging by crime statistics they have a straight correlation. Thus, I support the idea of their direct connection.
