英検1級2次試験:Are the police in Japan equipped to deal with the challenges of a modern society?

Are the police in Japan equipped to deal with the challenges of a modern society?

(日本の警察は、現代社会の課題に対処する能力があるか?)

 

I’m against the view that the police in Japan are equipped to deal with the challenges of a modern society.

I’ll explain two examples of them to support my belief.

 

First example is illegal drugs. In Japan, possessing or using illegal drugs is regarded as relatively petty crime. This is because imposing life imprisonment or death penalty on drug dealers is not permitted in Japan. As a result, police officers tend to pay little attention to capturing these criminals. In fact, the arrest rate of these kinds of crimes are much lower than compared with other countries.

 

Second example is cybercrime. Recently, it has been easier for ordinary people to purchase goods online and enter their private information. Sadly, in response to this, the number of people who try to obtain the information without permission and steal money is increasing dramatically. Cyberbullying committed by minors is also a huge problem.

 

In conclusion, I don’t believe that the police in Japan are equipped to deal with the challenges of a modern society. (171 words)

結論:Disagree

①違法薬物

②サイバー犯罪

 

①の検挙率についてはテキトーです。

シンガポールに行った際(初海外旅行時)に、「違法薬物の密輸入は死刑になり得る」と聞いてたまげたのを思い出しました。

 

なお、petty crime(軽犯罪)という表現は初めて使いました。
