Do you feel that the crime rate has been increased in the recent past Globally or itr is the avancement of the media because of which we are easily accible to such incidents! Now through the media only we see lot many crimes were conducted in the past where Police from the various Countries couldn't solve them or even if soved they took very long time ! But during that time barring the local people , people around the World were never well informed about this type of crimes as the mass media at that time was not well developed as today it is! What I mean to say and what my question is is it the media that is blowing the crime out of proportion to make it as a publicity stunt for their organisation which wasn't there in the past or really the crime rates have got increased in the recent past! Your opinion will be highly regarded! Thanks!

I think the crime rate is way out of control, it is becoming mor gruesome, more frequent and for no reason, I blame what people are being shown on TV and the internet, tv shows are too realistic and I think a lot of the times they just give people who are not in their right mind ideas.

I thinks crimes have been always there in the Society and they were gruesome and cruel, but today it is because of the mass media we are made aware of these things and they have entered our peaceful lives as big distractors and have created a panic in our lives! Don't you agree with me?

I guess that is possible but I think a few people get ideas from TV shows, I think life is meaningless to a lot of people these days.
