The aim of this paper is to show consequences and reasons of crime and violent acts in the United States, which have risen rapidly in the twentieth century. Not only has the crime rate increased sharply, but the character of criminal acts committed has also changed. Therefore, crimes have transformed into more vicious, hurtful and purposeless. The main questions that are to be asked in this paper are about the stimulus of violent acts and the most effective ways of preventing crime.
