- Jan Wagner, June, 2005.

• Viewing violence increases fear of becoming a victim of violence resulting in increased mistrust of others.
- Violence As Entertainment, Crime Prevention Resource, Fort Worth, TX.

• Over 1000 studies attest to a casual connection between media violence and aggressive behavior in children.
- Violence As Entertainment, Crime Prevention Resource, Fort Worth, TX.

• Exposure to violence is the most influential contributor in explaining children's violent behaviors in elementary and middle school children.
- Violence As Entertainment, Crime Prevention Resource, Fort Worth, TX..

• 61% of TV programming contains violence, with children's programming being the most violent.
- Violence As Entertainment, Crime Prevention Resource, Fort Worth, TX.

• Young children are likely to imitate what they see on TV, particularly if the behavior is performed by an attractive role model and is either rewarded or goes unpunished.
- Violence As Entertainment, Crime Prevention Resource, Fort Worth, TX.

• In homes where no physical or emotional violence is present, children are still bathed in violent images; the average child spends more than three hours a day watching television. Television, videogames, music and film have become increasingly violent (Donnerstein et al., 1995). Huston and colleagues have estimated that the average 18 year old will have viewed 200,000 acts of violence on television (Huston, et al., 1992). Even with solid emotional, behavioral, cognitive and social anchors provided by a healthy home and community, this pervasive media violence increases aggression and antisocial behavior (Lewis et al., 1989; Myers et al., 1995; Mones, 1991; Hickey, 1991; Loeber et al., 1993; O'Keefe, 1995), contributes to a sense that the world is more dangerous than it is (Gerbner, 1992) and desensitizes children to future violence (Comstock and Paik, 1991). In children exposed to violence in the home, these media images of power and violence are major sources of ‘cultural’ values, reinforcing what they have seen modeled at home.
