Gợi ý: Dạng bài Opinion trong đó người viết PHẢI phân tích cả 2 hướng trước khi đưa ra quan điểm của mình. Gợi ý dưới đây thể hiện quan điểm một phần đồng ý rằng hình phạt tù dài hơn có thể góp phần ngăn chặn tội phạm nhưng cũng cho rằng có nhiều biện pháp khác hiệu quả hơn cần được thực hiện.
Đoạn 1: Khẳng định rằng việc tăng hình phạt tù có thể giúp làm giảm tỷ lệ tội phạm
Ý 1: Prison sentence has long been the most prevalent method to deal with crime and it has proved itself to be effective.
→ The fear one person may have of losing his freedom, the most valuable thing in life, is literally a powerful deterrent against his criminal acts.
→ Therefore, the longer imprisonment is, the stronger defense it becomes to protect society from illegal activities, especially dangerous ones such as assault, murder or terrorism.
Đoạn 2: Tuy nhiên, còn nhiều biện pháp khác hiệu quả hơn cần được tiến hành
Workable though longer imprisonment is, it can only act as a short-term measure but not a long-term one. Instead, there must be resolutions to what causes crime.
Ý 1: Facts indicate that the vast majority of criminal acts are rooted in poverty and unemployment; thus, what the government needs to do is creating more favourable conditions for investors, both domestic and foreign ones, in order to enhance their business.
→ When the demand for labour is boosted, the percentage of people out of work falls and so does the crime rate.
Ý 2: Some youngsters commit crime due to their low awareness as a result of insufficient education.
→ For example, some 15-23 year olds are unable to adjust their behaviors in accordance with social norms, imitating violence they see on media in real life and violating the laws.
→ Moral lessons from parents and schools are required to keep the young away from misconducts.
