Præsentation af emnet

Der er stor politisk debat om det amerikanske retssystem. USA har det højeste antal fængselsindsatte pr. indbygger i verden, men alligevel ender et stort antal tidligere indsatte med at begå nye forbrydelser. Derfor har nogen argumenteret for, at det amerikanske system har for stort fokus på at straffe de kriminelle, frem for at rehabilitere dem. Andre holder dog fast i, at det primære formål med fængselsdomme netop er at straffe, men denne holdning er med til at gøre det sværere for tidligere indsatte at vende tilbage til samfundet.

Uddrag

Nedenfor kan du læse et kort uddrag fra vores study guide til emnet:

Ethos

In the speech, Marlon Peterson appeals to ethos by depicting himself and the people he mentions as credible, caring, and understanding.

First of all, Peterson builds ethos around himself by being honest about serving time in prison: “I eventually served 10 years, two months and seven days of a prison sentence” (ll. 22-23). His honesty makes him credible. At the same time, it suggests that he knows the prison system from the inside and, thus, has enough knowledge to argue for his views.

Peterson also creates ethos by showing the audience that some people view him as a hero despite him being a convicted criminal: “She wrote: ‘When I become famous, I will tell everyone that I know a hero named Marlon Peterson.’ ” (l. 1)

Peterson also praises people in his parents’ country: “So people from Laventille repurposed the old drums left behind […], those people literally made music out of garbage” (ll. 15-17). This helps his analogy between the people of Trinidad and Tobago making music out of rubbish, and the people deemed rubbish by society who have been redeemed by rehabilitation.
