Should capital punishment be abolished?

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 Some people believe that capital punishment should be abolished. Other people believe that capital punishment should not be abolished. In my opinion, I agree that capital punishment should not be abolished for the following two reasons.
 The first reason is that capital punishment is playing an important role as an effective deterrent to serious crimes. I’m sure that if capital punishment is repealed, the number of crimes will increase. Thus, I believe that capital punishment is not only should not be abolished, but also should be even stricter.
 The second reason is that it is very unreasonable to spend a huge amount of tax to keep serious offenders alive. It costs the government a lot of money to keep prisoners. I believe that tax should be used to help people. It should be used for welfare services. Therefore capital punishment should be implemented in order to allocate more money for people such as victims of natural disasters.
 In conclusion, I strongly believe that capital punishment should not be annihilated. It should be expedited in order to prevent abominable crimes as much as possible and to help the government financially and to facilitate welfare services.

ここで、他の作文にも出ていますがひとつめの理由のところで書いている
"capital punishment is playing an important role as an effective deterrent to serious crimes"
というのはかなり使える理由です。
”死刑制度は重犯罪の効果的な抑止力の役割をはたしている”
というような意味ですが、これはいろいろなところで応用できます。
”死刑制度は廃止すべきか?”
”未成年犯罪者の実名報道”
に限らず
”銃は廃止すべきか?”
”罰を厳しくすべきか?”
”防犯カメラの必要性”
”交番の存在意義”
などいろいろなトピックで理由に ”犯罪の効果的な抑止力の役割を果たす”
"it plays an important role as an effective deterrent to crimes"
ということが出来ます。ぜひ、使ってみてください。
