Violence among young people has increased dramatically over the past 50 years. This rise moves in tandem with a growth in violent media. Thus, the conclusion can be drawn that violent media is the main cause of violence among young people. Refute this claim.

Over the past 5 decades, there has been an upsurge in crime rates among young adults, so, many people believe that
this
is due to the presence of violent media. In my view, I believe
this
is not completely correct since people have the right to choose what to watch and who to associate with. It is true that there is an increase in the presence of violent media making people believe that, the consequence is, a rise in unacceptable
behaviors
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
among young people, but I disagree. People have the power of choice, so, they can decide what to watch.
For instance
, they have the right to make decisions on their own, so, they can as well choose to watch only images that portray positive
behavior
manner of acting or controlling yourself
behaviour
. Another reason why I disagree with the opinion of young people acting based on what they watch is that, youths are prone to the use of banned substances,
such
as marijuana, cannabis, and cocaine.
For example
, the constant use of these illicit substances interferes with the functioning of the Central Nervous System, which eventually causes behavioural attitudes that are violent.
Finally
, people have the freedom of association

so
,

they choose who to relate with.
Therefore
, if young adults decide to associate with their peers who exhibit acceptable

behaviour
,
Accept space
,
then
, the issue of violent media solely leading to a rise in violent
behaviors

behaviours
among youths cannot be substantiated. So, the association youths keep is one of the factors that eventually determines how they act, think, and behave. In conclusion, despite many people holding the notion of young adults being totally influenced by a rise in violent media, I believe,
however
, that the company youths keep
go

going
a long way in influencing their actions, as well as knowing that adults have the right to decide what relationships they should keep.
