Bandura, Ross, and Ross argue the philosophy that social learning is the primary way to acquire a behavior. For this reason, they basically state that what people see, hear, and live everyday will kind of imprint onto their subconscious, making them prone to act, talk, and behave the way their peers do. In the case of murder, if a person lives in a violent environment and exposed to a whole lot of heavy fighting, shouting, and disregard for human life, the social learning theory would agree that the person could easily develop aggressive tendencies that could lead easily to murder.
