- A school shooting has just taken place. As I write this, the newscaster wonders if there is any connection between this and other school shootings, whether through method or motive. There will likely be a discussion on one of the myriad talk shows later, the ubiquitous scrolling headline at the bottom reading something along the lines of “Shooters Played Violent Video Games” or “Teen Killers Watched Action Movies.” And why not. Violence in the media has received an ample amount of attention in the past few years....   [tags: Media Violence, 2014]

With this perspective the individual is viewed as someone who cannot stop the domestic violence and continues these actions time and time again. Societies attitude towards these wrongdoers is that they pose a threat to society and we are fearful to these individuals. The solution to domestic violence under this philosophy is for the individual to be put in jail and removed form society so that they can be given some kind of moral education....   [tags: Violence Against Women Essays]

Juvenile Violence in Public Schools

- The starting point of violence takes place in communities and at home--not at school. Youth take what they hear and see at home and in their communities to school. The environment in some communities and households are positive and the presences of protective factors outweigh the high risk factors. However, there are communities and households where there is a lack of informal social control and high risk factors exist more than protective factors--, which affect youth in a negative manner. A sudden increase of youth violence in public schools in early 1990 has caused many to raise concerns about violent behaviors in schools....   [tags: School Violence Essays]

And with regular Saturday morning children's television containing about 20 to 25 acts of violence per hour, it is no wonder the average person has viewed around 200,000 acts of violence by the time he reaches 18 years of age....   [tags: Media Violence TV Violence]

Battered husbands have historically been either ignored or subjected to ridicule and abuse.

Violence is nationally defined as a physical force used to injure, damage or destroy (Guralnik, D., 1997, P.1490). In the past decade, students are using more than physical force. They are using deadly weapons to injure or kill their peers and authority figures, and to destroy school property. Safety is considered to be the freedom from danger and injury damage (Guralnik, D., 1997, P.1181); in other words, freedom from violence....   [tags: School Violence Crime Safety Education Essays]

Not surprisingly, the Center for Disease Control and prevention has identified interpersonal violence as a major public health problem (Velson-Friedrich, 1994).
