In fact... I'd go as far as to say it's the same as it always has been.
Violence with a purpose I can understand. Not saying I agree or that it's acceptable or anything, but I can at least wrap my mind around it. War, protests, etc.....
It's the (seemingly) increase in random violence that concerns me. Walk into a school, theatre, mall, work place and shoot it up, bomb it up, gas it up, because one person cracked
There have always been cases of this as I can remember, but it seems they are happening in higher numbers and closer together these days..........maybe not.
