Summary/Abstract: Being an integral part of criminal policy, repression does not seem to produce appropriate results either in reducing the overall crime rate or in diminishing criminal violence (such as, murder). For this reason, it is necessary to take appropriate action aimed at preventing the commission of these criminal offences, which may most efficiently be done by means of mass media and the educational system (schools). Starting form this assumption, the author focuses on the specific examples illustrating the use of mass media and schools in the prevention of violent crimes with lethal consequences.
