BRANDON:

I do feel violence in television will increase violence among viewers. The same goes for video games that young kids play on a daily basis. When we watch tv or play video games, the consequences are not always shown. They may also get out of the situation easier than they would in the real world. This may encourage others to do what is seen or challenge what they saw. This is no excuse and people should be responsible and know the consequences of what they do. However, this is not the case. Kids of a young age may not understand what is right or wrong but when they experience violence on television they will want to do it because it seems cool.
