2017雅思写作模拟试题:青少年罪犯是否该判刑

  Task:Young people who commit serious crimes should be punished in the same way as adults. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

  思路解析:

  1. 应该,严肃的法律能起到一种威慑作用,让青少年们不敢再次犯罪。举例,今天我们对于青少年罪犯的法律惩罚实在是不痛不痒,甚至是太仁慈了,这让年轻人藐视法律,他们会想,即使犯罪也没什么大不。所以像成年人那样惩罚他们很必要,比如说关监狱,而不是简单地口头教导。这些痛苦的惩罚让年轻人不敢随便挑战社会法规。

  2. 然而,年轻人的司法体系应该更加灵活一些,这是因为年轻人很年轻,不成熟,他们的犯罪动机很可能不是那么邪恶。举例,成年罪犯的抢劫动机很明确,就是通过袭击他人来获取财富。相比之下,青少年伤害他人的行为很可能只是因为来自同伴的压力,或是因为一时冲动。考虑到他们并不是有意要犯罪,所以给他们较轻的判罚是可以理解的。

  参考范文:

  Should young criminals be punished on the same level of adults, as some people argue? Personally, I agree with is assertion partially, while it underestimates the importance of a flexible judgment on youngsters.

  The main reason of using the same standard to punish the youth is, it deters them from further crimes. Today, the main cause of juvenile crimes increasing is a lenient juvenile judicial system and milder punishments like lighter sentences, shortened prison terms, or even probation. Youngsters think they can always get off easily, regardless the seriousness of crimes. Therefore, it is necessary for juvenile offenders to be tried as strictly as adults, which lets these youngsters know that they are not exempt from heavy penalties, and not given any special consideration because of their age factor. By this way, their desires of making illegal activities would be inhibited.

  However, to a large extent, juvenile judicial system should be flexible. Psychologically speaking, youngsters under the age of 18 are immature, with less social experience and concepts about social rules, or with no recognition about the consequence. In many cases, young criminals have no idea that what they do is illegal. For example, compared with adult criminals who have the definite plans and goals to make money by hunting or killing victims, the testimony of many teenage thieves and robbers proves that their movements are purposeless, and the main reasons for them to do so are no more than peer pressure and impulsiveness. Therefore, when it comes to the fact that adult criminals are intentional but young ones are unintentional, it is reasonable to treat and trial them differently.

  In conclusion, a flexible juvenile judicial system should be encouraged. Although a strict punishment to young offenders as adults might be a profound education for young generations, sentences on young offenders should be lighter, considering the fact that their intentions of breaking law are fundamentally different from that of adults.
