Crime rates were exceedingly high in the 19th century before TV, movies, and video games had been created?
What, if anything, does this say about the effect of media on crime?
First of all, you'd need to state your facts.
Who calculated the "rates" and how?
Compared to what crimes and rates in the past decade or two?
Who calculated those rates and how?
Please ask a more specific question and you'll probably be able to get a better answer.
