句子解析:

第一句:

In the US, mandatory custodial sentences have long been a feature of the sentencing of children, even in some cases leading to the imprisonment of those under 18 for the rest of their natural lives.

参考译文:在美国,儿童犯罪的判刑长期以来以强制监禁为特色,甚至在某些情况下,会导致18岁以下的孩子面临终身监禁。

第二句:

In England, we have been steadily moving in the same direction, as politicians respond – slavishly and without reason – to each round of media coverage of a youth “crimewave”.

参考译文:在英国,随着政客们——盲目地、毫无根据地回应每一轮关于青少年“犯罪潮”的报道,我们一直在朝同一方向稳步行进。

思考题解析:

The politicians of England react to the so-called youth “crimewave” by ____

英国政客是如何对青少年犯罪浪潮作出回应的

(A) deploying the same direction of media coverage.

使用和媒体报道一样的方向。

(这个不对!)

(B)imposing severe punishment on children crime.

对儿童犯罪实施严厉的惩罚。

对!

因为说到了我们是朝着同一个方向稳步前进的。

什么叫同一个方向?就是指和美国一样的方向。

那就是像美国那样对青少年犯罪判重刑。

对了你可能会说,青少年犯罪可以:children crime 吗?

可以!

还可以用:juvenile Deliquency

估计我用这个你更懵了。

(C)ruling the life sentence for those under the 18.

判那些18岁以下的人终生监禁。

也不能都判终生监禁啊。

所以B才是最 佳啊!

(D)moving the same way with the media and press.

和媒体往同一个方向。

这里不对,不是和媒体,而是和美国。

文章来源背景和来源:

'A stain on national life': why are we locking up so many children?

“国家生活的污点”:为什么我们要关押这么多孩子?

Source: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/jul/23/youth-justice-young-offender-institutions-locking-up-children

背景:英国一位长期代理刑事案件的律师认为,英国近来年对于未成年犯罪的审判越来越严苛,简单地将成年人犯罪的条款变成青少版,不仅没能起到减少犯罪的作用,还让这些孩子们失去再教育的机会,无法重头再来,越来越多地成为职业罪犯。这波强硬政策从1970年保守党上台开始盛行。自1965年至1980年,被关押的少年犯人数上涨了5倍,早期对基于福利的少年司法的踌躇尝试走到了尽头。然而这种政策转向往往只基于收割选票的政治考量,并没有进行坚实的可行性调查和分析。少年犯罪往往是复杂家庭和社会因素的共同结果,简单粗暴地关押早已被数据显示只会大幅提升犯罪率。
