美国15岁高中生开枪打死4名同学!而此时却有议员发布了这样一张照片……
来源:21英语网    日期: 2021-12-06
当地时间11月30日,美国密歇根州底特律市附近牛津高中的15岁学生伊桑•克伦布利开枪打死四名同学、打伤七人,他目前面临多项重罪指控。

School bells were replaced by police sirens last Tuesday after a shooting at Michigan's Oxford High School left four students dead. Seven other students and a teacher were wounded by gunfire. A 15-year-old suspect is in custody and has been charged as an adult, authorities said.

12月1日,15岁的嫌疑人克伦布利被控4项一级谋杀罪、1项恐怖主义致死罪、7项蓄意谋杀攻击罪以及11项持械重罪。

The 15-year-old suspect accused of killing four students in an Oxford, Michigan, school was charged – as an adult – with four counts of first-degree murder and terrorism, among other charges.
 
事发学校监控视频显示,11月30日午间克伦布利持枪“有条不紊、从容地”走过学校大楼走廊,并对准学生开枪。

CNN报道称,当时有学生曾使用剪刀自卫,另有学生从教学楼的窗户逃生。
 

警方从现场发现了一些弹壳,推断事发时嫌疑人开了15-20枪。目前,案件仍在进一步调查中,犯罪嫌疑人的作案动机尚未明确。

Authorities recovered multiple shell casings in the school and believe around 15-20 shots were fired. The sheriff's office is still investigating the incident and have not shared the motive for the deadly shooting.

为何15岁的学生会有枪?枪从何而来?在事件发生后,不少美媒关注到这些问题。

当地时间3日,密歇根州奥克兰县检方对伊桑•克伦布利的父母詹姆斯•克伦布利和詹妮弗•克伦布利提起“非自愿过失杀人”的指控。据CNN报道,枪手使用的枪支为其父亲在事发前几日购买的。

James and Jennifer Crumbley were charged last Friday with four counts each of homicide involuntary manslaughter following the deadly school shooting. Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald said James Crumbley bought the gun four days before it was used in the shooting.

枪击案发生的当晚,克伦布利的父母以安全为由离开居住地,两人的律师声称此举并非逃跑。美国法警局、奥克兰县逃犯搜寻队、底特律警察局等部门开展搜捕,并于4日清晨将他们逮捕。

Two attorneys working with Jennifer and James Crumbley said the couple left town on the night of the shooting “for their own safety” and are not fleeing.They were arrested Saturday in Detroit after an hours-long search, authorities said.




检察官卡伦•麦克唐纳3日表示,对嫌疑人父母的指控意在传递这样的信息:枪支拥有者应对其枪支负责,如未能履行这一责任,就应对所造成的悲剧承担刑事后果。

"I want to be really clear that these charges are intended to hold the individuals who contributed to this tragedy accountable," Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said, "and also send a message that gun owners have a responsibility."

检方认为,枪手父母对枪支保管不善、对儿子可能的犯罪迹象视而不见,因此应该对悲剧的发生负有责任。据CNN援引检方材料,在事发前一天,老师发现伊桑•克伦布利用手机上网搜索“弹药”后联系家长,但是却没有得到回应。其母亲随后曾给儿子发信息:我不会生气的,你要学着别被(老师)抓到。而在事发当天,还有老师看到克伦布利一张“自动手枪和子弹的图画”,在手枪和子弹之间画了一个人,似乎身中两枪在流血,而子弹上则写着“到处是血”。画上还画有一个笑脸的表情,并且写着:“我的人生毫无用处”“这个世界死了”。



4日上午,詹姆斯和詹妮弗在狱中通过视频方式出席奥克兰县法院的传讯,两人对“非自愿过失杀人”的指控表示“不认罪”。法官将詹姆斯和詹妮弗每人的保释金额裁定为50万美元,而伊桑则是不允许被保释的。

美议员全家福枪照引发争议

当地时间2日,《芝加哥太阳日报》发文《寻求枪支暴力方案》,其中写道:“无休止的枪支暴力报道令人麻木……我们每天都需要呼吁对此的解决方案。美国枪支暴力的悲剧堪比灾难,这在其他高收入国家是看不到的。美国学校不安全,美国街道也不安全。”

The never-ending news reports of gun violence are numbing……We should cry out — every day — for solutions. The tragic level of gun violence in America is a scourge that exists in no other high-income nation. No American school is safe. Nor are the streets.
 


新华社报道,美国媒体一般将“大规模枪击”定义为除枪手外4人或4人以上中枪的枪击事件——有统计数据显示,在过去的20年中,美国是世界上唯一一个每年都发生大规模枪击事件的发达国家。同时,美国也是发达国家中涉枪凶杀率最高的国家。2019年,美国每10万人就有四人死于枪支暴力,这一比率较其他发达国家的平均水平高出了17倍。

然而,就在美国媒体发出呼吁控枪,密歇根枪击案仍令人胆寒之际,美国一名议员却发布了一张全家“荷枪实弹”的圣诞节全家福照片,此举引发广泛批评。在推文的图片中,他还写道向圣诞老人要子弹。



US Rep. Thomas Massie is drawing criticism after tweeting a photo of him and his family holding guns in front of a Christmas tree, just days after four teenagers were killed in a school shooting in Michigan. Merry Christmas!, ps. Santa, please bring ammo," read the Saturday tweet by the Republican representative from Kentucky, which showed everyone in the photo holding various types of guns.

据CNN援引瑞士轻武器调查项目数据显示,美国是世界上唯一一个民用枪支数量超过人口数量的国家,每100名美国人拥有120支枪。

There are 120 guns for every 100 Americans, according to the Switzerland-based Small Arms Survey (SAS). No other nation has more civilian guns than people.
