 Television and violence
Given that homicide is primarily an adult activity, if television exerts its behavior-modifying effects primarily on children, the initial "television generation" would have had to age 10 to 15 years before they would have been old enough to affect the homicide rate.
It is concluded that the introduction of television in the 1950s caused a subsequent doubling of the homicide rate, i.e., long-term childhood exposure to television is a causal factor behind approximately one half of the homicides committed in the United States, or approximately 10 000 homicides annually.
To say that childhood exposure to television and television violence is a predisposing factor behind half of violent acts is not to discount the importance of other factors.

 Reason magazine -- March 2001, Missing Link by Jib Fowles
If there were a causal connection between watching symbolic televised scrapes and the menacing aggression lurking in the real world, then this relationship would surely be reflected in national crime trends.

In any case, television is not a schoolhouse for criminal behavior because, as a rule, televised amusement is not a very good teacher.

In the mid-Seventies the vast majority of the population, and hence the vast majority of the television audience, was between the ages of 12 and 30-the people least likely to watch Western TV shows.
