A Multivariate Examination of Predictors of Viewing Television Violence, Attitudes toward Television Violence, and Differences among Assaultive and Non-Assaultive Inmates Concerning Television Violence and Overall Media Consumption.
Balon, Robert Edward
This study explored the relationship between prison inmates' preferences for violent television programs and their involvement in crimes of violence. Findings suggested that there was no significant relationship between prisoners' assaultive backgrounds and their stated preferences for violent programs, and that there was no relationship between television viewing and crimes of violence. Among the factors identified for future research was the possibility that criminals may learn criminal techniques from television. (Author/GW)
