01 Having Faith 信任

You can call me A.J. , which is an abbreviation of my full name, Alexander Justice. I like to abbreviate my name because it's easier for people to remember. I work for a museum that collects aboriginal artifacts.

译文:你可以叫我A.J., 这是我的全名Alexander Justice的缩写。我喜欢缩写我的名字,因为这样人们更容易记忆。我在一家收藏土著手工艺品的博物馆工作。

I would like to tellyou why I have an abiding faith in the legal system. The story you're about to read has been abridged to reduce its length.

我要告诉你为什么我会始终不遇的信任法制。下面你将读到的故事已被删剪,以免冗长。

I used to live in an area where criminals abouded and where the legal system seemed powerless. One day, mydaughter was abducted. Although I abided by the kidnapper's monetary demands,they refused to release her. I had no choice but to put my faith in the legal authorities. The police responded immediately and searched the area. Despite their lack of success, they refused to abandon their search or to call an abort to their mission .They knew that any abortive action would surely result in my daughter's death.

译文:我曾住在一个罪犯多如牛毛而法律又软弱的地区。我女儿遭到绑架。尽管我遵从了绑架者的金钱要求,他们仍拒绝释放她。我别无选择只好寄希望法律。警察立刻行动全面搜查该地。虽然徒劳无获,但他们不愿终止行动放弃搜查,因为他们知道任何失败都将导致我女儿的死亡。

The investigation eventually led the police to conduct an abrupt search at the home of a local official who was abashed when he learned of the search. My daughter was found in his basement. She had abrasions to her wrists where the abrasive pope had scraped her. The official was arrested along with his bodyguard who abetted him in the kidnapping.

译文:调查到最后警察部门决定出其不意的搜查当第一名官员的家。那名官员得知被搜查时羞愧难当。警察在他的地下室找到了我女儿。她的手腕有多处磨伤,那是被粗糙的绳子擦伤的。那名官员连同唆使他绑架的保镖双双被捕。

The official was forced to abdicate his position and was sent to prison for life. The judge told him that he was lucky that capital punishment had been abolished and that it was only due to this abolition that he would not be executed. The swift apprehension and strict punishment of these criminals helped to abate my lack of faith in the legal system. These days,I truly believe in "justice",and it's not because of my name!

译文:那名官员被迫辞职,判处终身监禁。法官告诉他他该庆幸极刑已被废除,他将免遭处决。迅速抓获罪犯并严惩的做法减少了我对法治的不信任感。现在,我真正信任“司法”,但并不是因为我的名字叫Justice!。
