So what you're basically saying is that you're making presumptions about whether or not television and games have and do encourage people to murder if they're so inclined, but don't have any formal or even anecdotal evidence whatsoever to back it up.

As long as we're clear!

We could end up in a very long and detailed psychological debate here, so I'll just conclude my side of it by stating that I don't believe television or games have a significant influence on whether or not somebody chooses to kill, and that in most cases it's a critical factor that causes it (eg: being dumped by girlfriend, being bulled one time too many at school, desire to commit another crime and not go to jail for it, etc).
