Although the problem of keeping or abolishing death penalty has not reached an agreement in the long debate, the argument put by the two sides enables us to stand on the forefathers’ shoulder to view this problem: should death penalty be abolished? Different people have different opinions. I think it should not be abolished. The followings are my reasons:

关于死刑的存废,数百年的争论虽然没有使这一问题形成定论,但争论使存废两派的支持者发挥得淋漓尽致,使我们有机会站在前人的肩膀上冷静地看待这个问题:死刑到底应不应该废除?我的答案是不该废除。以下是我的观点:

Firstly, death penalty is the necessary way to punish some special crimes. As our society is very complicated, it is easy to appear some series crimes. Those crimes are not forgiven. In order to keep the society stable, the government should publish those people by death penalty. Otherwise, the society will not be safe.

首先,死刑是对付特定恶性犯罪的必要手段。由于社会状况复杂,难免在一定时期出现穷凶极恶的犯罪。这些犯罪都是不可原谅的。为了保持社会稳定,政府应该用死刑来惩罚那些人。否则这个社会将不再安全。

Secondly, when a person kills people, he does not receive death penalty, but other punishment, like life imprisonment. Does anybody think that life imprisonment is a waste of resource, and once the prisoner runs away from the prison, it is dangerous to the society? While death penalty won’t make that happen. Therefore, death penalty cannot be replaced by other punishment.

第二,当一个人杀人后,他没有被处以死刑,而是其他的惩罚,如终身监禁。有没有人觉得终身监禁是在浪费资源,而且一旦囚犯从 监狱中逃脱,这个社会就会变得很危险。而死刑不会让这种事发生。所以,死刑不能由别的惩罚代替。

Recently, Norway suffered a huge explosion and a shooting, which declaring the abolition of capital punishment is unwise. Nearly a hundred people died in the two events that were and made by the same boy. However, as the law is too permissive, the boy was sentenced to imprisonment for 14 years and he could be released on parole. Norwegians worry about that the people who cause great harm cannot be executed. After 14 years, he can walk in the street again, which it is very frightened. According to the survey, 80% of Norwegians want the boy to be sentenced to death, but the Norwegian law doesn't have the death penalty. The example can be quite clear that death penalty should exist.

最近,挪威遭受了一次巨大的爆炸和枪击,这就说明了废除死刑是不明智的。近百人在这两个事件中死亡,而制造这些事件的人都是同一个男孩。然而,由于法律宽容,男孩只被判处14年监禁,而且他也可以被假释。挪威人担心造成这么大伤害的人而不处决。14年后,他又可以在街上行走,真的是很吓人。据调查,80%的人希望这孩子被判处死刑,但挪威法律没有死刑。这个例子可以很清楚地证明应存在死刑。

In short, the death penalty helps society become stable. China's securities need the death penalty. So, I think it should not be abolished.

总之,死刑让社会变得更稳定。中国的安定需要死刑。所以,我认为死刑不应该被废除。
