Q: Why do people commit acts of violence?
Violence

As long as human beings are on this earth, violence will always be existed. In the ancient times people were obligated to protect themselves from external powers who were eager to conquer new lands and possess more wealth. Because of this fact, violence was more widespread back then than it is now. Today most countries do not feel the need to occupy new territories and defeat other continents. However, we still witness many cases of violence nowadays. Most of them, obviously have political connotations, but what about those instances that happen within a society? What forces inspire ordinary citizens to fight or kill one another? After studying several incidents of this nature, it is not very difficult to find what these crimes have in common. Media and corruption of moral values must be the main reasons why some citizens commit acts of crime.

Media, is one of the most powerful influences an human behavior, and it is the first reason why people become violent. With the fast advancements in technology many accessibility of wide range information became easily-available. Albeit, intellectual societies including governments try to control underage access to unnecessary or dangerous information, children still have many opportunities to watch, listen, or play materials that carry alarming messages. In "Children, violence, and the media" Leonard Eron, a Senior Research Scientist at the University of Michigan, (1999) asserts, that one out of ten children commit violence due to television alone. Moreover, over 1000 scientific reports have demonstrated that there is a connection between violent attitudes and its effects among people who observed it back in the childhood. Therefore, it is reasonable to infer that the more children are exposed to violence in media, the more they are going to commit acts of violence upon reaching legal maturity. Furthermore, some children do not wait for adulthood to kill people. There have been instances when teenagers engaged in criminal activities with fatal consequences. One of the most famous of these was the Columbine High School massacre (cited in CNN article, 1999). The students responsible for the murder of 12 adolescents and a teacher are said to have been big fans of first-person shooter video game called Doom. Another example of similar media influence on juvenile behavior is a teenager who killed Texas state trooper after listening to the rapper 2Pac's album "2Pacalypse Now". This is not some brutal coincidence, intentionally, the album included lyrics about killing police.

It is not only children who are influenced by media violence; adults cannot be excluded as well. According to a 25-year of research, adults are also being affected by violence depicted in movies and on TV. This can be easily explained if we consider how gangster lifestyle is widely romanticized by the cinema. One of the most critically acclaimed movies, "The Godfather" has indirect suggestions of how it is manly to be a gangster. While the protagonist, Michael Corleone, is depicted as a wise and powerful man who is a murder himself and conducts other crimes as well. In the movie, "Scarface" the main character Tony Montana says: "You need people like me, so you can point your (profanity) fingers and say 'That's the bad guy.'". The subtle message is that people will "need" guys like him, the drug sellers, the violators of law, and the psychopath killers.

The second explanation for violence among citizens is corruption in contemporary moral values. There are regions where people have their own laws, regions where law enforcement practically does not exist. In addition to feeling insecure and scared, the necessity of being protected by the laws is not provided for people who live in such places, find only a few options to make ends meet. Due to a large number of drug addicts and the underground availability of narcotics, violence became a necessary evil. As the hip-hop artist and entrepreneur, Jay-Z notes in his book Decoded, "Outside, in Marcy's courtyards and across the country, teenagers wore automatic weapons like they were sneakers. Broad-daylight shoot-outs had our grandmothers afraid to leave the house..." In this kind of jungle-like habitat citizens need to commit violence in order to protect themselves. Moreover, the illegal business of selling drugs itself involves street brutality which often ends up in homicides. Eventually, gangs fight each other over the control of territories where they provide their illegitimate services. Thus, uncontrollable street laws contribute to disorganized societies and lost moral values.

In essence, no matter how hard people try to avoid violence, it always persisted throughout our history even among ordinary citizens. To get rid of a problem it is important to find its roots. To minimize violence we first have to research the causes of it. As of today two main reasons for violence are the constant portrayal of it by media and absence of moral values. The more movies, music, and games we have that promote violence and the more segregated areas we have in cities, the more we are going to have killings, shootings, and deaths.

Siddet iceren oyunlari oynayan her cocuk, oldurmeye tesebbus edecek veya katil olacak diye bir kaide yok. Bu buyuk oranda yetistirme tarzinlada alakali. Benim tanidigim o kadar ebeveyn varki, dovusmeyi ogreten, nasil yumruk atilir, nasil bayiltabilirsin, amaan haa dikkat et suralarina vurma olebilir diyen... Gunun birinde, bir baba oglu sokakta aglarken, neden agliyorsun oglum diyordu. Oda, beni falanca arkadas dovdu demisti. Sende dovseydin ya, elin armutmu topluyordu? Bu benim garibime gitti, gider cunki ornek aldigi babasi ona siddete basvurmasini istemisti. Tamam cocuklarimiz dovulmesin, ama dovmesinde. Cocuk yasta dovusur, bu siddetde ergenlik caginda daha vahim ve sonuclari agir olan olaylar getirir. Zaten meyilli olan suc isler. Gerci birde nicin ve nasil meyilli hale geliyor, onuda oyunlara, ornek aldiklari sanatcilara baglamislar burada. Bir cok faktor vardir mutlaka, bu saydiklarinizda onlardandir belki ama cevrede onemlidir. En guclu olma cabasi, itibar savasi, bir gruba girebilme mucadelesi icin bile suc isleyenler var. Bunlar zayif karakterli insanlar olabilir kanimca. Bir yere, ün kazanmis bir ortama girmek ne kazandirirki sana. Ne bilecek gencimiz faydasiz bir rekabet ortaminda oldugunu. Sahi, neden genclerimize genelde delikanli derler?
