criminology

According to Courtwright, criminal rates were exceedingly high in the nineteenth century before TV, movies, and rap videos had been created. What, if anything, does this say about the effect of media on crime?
What were some of the other factors that provoked violence? Do you think that these factors still cause violence today?
