ESL 87: Too Soft on Crime


ESL 87: Too Soft on Crime


Download


No one knows for sure, but some experts estimate that half of the crimes committed in the US go unreported. Half of those reported never result in the criminal being found. Half of those in which the criminal is found never result in convictions. Half of the convictions result in reduced or full sentences. Half of the full sentences eventually become reduced sentences because of "good behavior" or overcrowded prisons that result in early releases.

"The problem," said Wyatt Earp, a retired police officer, "is that punishment is not swift enough or severe enough. All they get is a slap on the wrist. Too many judges are soft on criminals. We need to change the law so that there is an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. Even criminals understand physical pain.

"If I were president, I would do many things to teach these punks a lesson. Prisons would have no heat and no air-conditioning. Let the jerks freeze in the winter and bake in the summer. They would get one peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast, for lunch, and for dinner. This way we don't have to worry about prisoners using utensils to injure guards or other inmates, or dig out of prison. And no crunchy or organic peanut butter either—only the cheap stuff. Their only beverage would be water—no soda, milk, coffee, or tea. And no fancy bottled water, either. Their water would be straight from the faucet."

Quá mềm mỏng với bọn tội phạm

Không ai biết chắc chắn, nhưng vài chuyên gia ước tính rằng một nửa của các vụ án thực hiện ở Mỹ thì không có được báo cáo. Một nửa của những vụ được báo cáo thì tội phạm không tìm được. Một nửa những tội phạm tìm được thì không bị buộc tội. Một nửa của những vụ buộc tội thì được giảm án hay kết án. Một nửa những vụ kết án cuối cũng trở thành án được giảm bởi vì "hành vi tốt" hay nhà tù quá chật chội hoặc được tha sớm.

"Vấn đề là," theo lời Wyatt Earp, một cảnh sát về hưu, "sự trừng phạt là không đủ mạnh hoặc khắt khe. Tất cả bọn họ chỉ bị giơ cao đánh khẽ. Có quá nhiều thẩm phán mềm mỏng với bọn tội phạm. Chúng ta cần thay luật để cái gì ra cái đó. Ngay cả bọn tội phạm cũng hiểu nỗi đau thể xác."

"Nếu tội là tổng thống, tôi sẽ làm nhiều việc để dạy tụi du côn này một bài học. Nhà tù sẽ không có lò sưởi hay máy điều hòa. Để cho tụi ngu này biết cái lạnh của mùa đông và cái nóng của mùa hè. Chúng sẽ chỉ ăn bơ đậu phộng và bánh mì sandwich cho bữa sáng, bữa trưa, bữa tối. Điều này làm chúng ta khỏi lo về việc những tù nhân dùng vật dụng để đả thương người bảo vệ hoặc những tù nhân khác, hoặc để đào hầm ra khỏi nhà tù. Và không có miếng bơ đậu phộng nào còn giòn hay còn nguyên cả hoặc chỉ là đồ rẻ tiền. Nước uống của chúng sẽ chỉ là nước- không soda, sữa, cà phê hoặc trà. Và không có chai nước nào hết. Nước của chúng chỉ là từ vòi nước chảy ra thôi."

*Translate into Vietnamese:
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Không ai biết một cách chắc chắn, nhưng một vài chuyên gia ước tính rằng một nửa các vụ tội phạm gây án ở Hoa Kỳ đã không được báo cáo. Một nửa các vụ việc được báo cáo không bao giờ đưa đến việc tội phạm được phát hiện. Một nửa các vụ việc mà tội phạm được phát hiện không bao giờ đưa đến việc kết án. Một nửa các vụ kết án có kết quả là giảm án hoặc y án . Một nửa các vụ y án rốt cuột biến thành án giảm vì "có tư cách đạo đức tốt" hoặc nhà tù quá đông đúc dẫn đến việc phóng thích sớm.

"Vấn đề," Wyatt Earp, một sĩ quan cảnh sát đã về hưu, nói, "ở chỗ việc trừng phạt chưa đủ nhanh và đủ nghiêm khắc. Tất cả bọn chúng đều nhận một bản án nhẹ nhàng. Rất nhiều quan toà tỏ ra nhân nhượng với bọn tội phạm. Chúng ta cần phải thay đổi luật để kẻ ăn miếng phải được trả miếng, và kẻ giết người phải đền mạng . Ngay cả bọn tội phạm cũng hiểu được nỗi đau thể chất.

"Nếu tôi là tổng thống, tôi sẽ làm nhiều việc để dạy cho cho những tên côn đồ này một bài học. Nhà tù sẽ không được giữ ấm và điều hoà không khí. Hãy để cho những kẻ ngu đần này lạnh buốt vào mùa đông và nóng như thiêu vào mùa hè. Chúng chỉ được một miếng bánh mì săng-uých với bơ đậu phộng và mứt cho bữa điểm tâm, bữa trưa và bữa tối. Phương pháp này (giúp) chúng ta không phải lo lắng việc tù nhân sử dụng đồ dùng để đả thương lực lượng bảo vệ hay những bạn tù khác, hoặc đào bới để vượt ngục. Và cũng không có bơ đậu phộng cứng giòn hoặc bơ đậu phộng có chất hữu cơ nữa- chỉ có những thứ rẻ tiền mà thôi. Nước giải khát duy nhất của chúng là nước-không xô-đa, không sữa, không cà-phê hoặc trà. Và cũng đừng có mơ tưởng đến nước đóng chai. Nước của chúng sẽ được lấy trực tiếp từ vòi nước."
