Bracelet for Preventing Crime
防止犯罪的脚套

HATTORI
In Florida, technology is giving some pretrial defendants a "get out of jail free" card, but it's not exactly free. As Mark Potter explains, there's a price: the defendant's movements are monitored via satellites and computers.
哈托利
在佛罗里达州,科技可以让一些还没有被审理的被告得到一个"出狱自由卡",当然它并不是真正的" 自由"。马克·波特解释说,代价就是被告的活动都由卫星和电脑监视。

MARK POTTER, CNN CORRESPONDENT
In Seminole County, Florida, north of Orlando, a college student arrested for alleged drug possession studies at home wearing a court-ordered ankle bracelet. It's part of a new type of satellite monitoring program that keeps an eye on defendants and their movements before trial. For this young man, the bracelet is a constant reminder he is being watched and to stay out of trouble.
马克·波特,CNN特派记者
佛罗里达州奥兰多北部的西米诺尔县,因被指控藏毒而被捕的一个大学生带着法庭要求的脚踝套在家里学习。这是一种新式的卫星监视项目的一部分,可以跟踪疑犯上法庭前的活动。对于这个年轻人来说,这个脚环不断提醒他是处于监视之下的,别惹麻烦。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE
It does keep me from going to some places that I would normally go to, you know, getting into trouble or hanging out with other, other people who I shouldn't be hanging out with.
男被访者
它确实使我远离那些我常去的地方,远离麻烦,或者不和那些本不应该一起闲逛的人出去游逛。

POTTER
The Seminole County Sheriff's Department says this program is the first of its kind nationwide. What makes it unique is that defendants' daily movements are compared with computerized crime reports to help determine if any of them may have broken the law before they go to trial. If so, they go back to jail. Here, a crime scene is in purple, the defendant is in red.
波特
西米诺尔县治安官办公室称,这个项目是全国首例。它与众不同之处是被告的日常活动与电脑存储的犯罪记录相对照,从而可以决定他们中间是否有人在法庭审理之前触犯了法律。如果的确如此,他们就得重回监狱。瞧这儿,犯罪现场是紫色的,被告是红色的。

CYNTHIA JOINER, SHERIFF?S DEPARTMENT, CRIME ANALYST
The red dots represent an offender that was in the area at that particular moment when the offense occurred.
辛西娅·乔伊娜,治安官办公室犯罪分析员
红色代表一个犯罪分子在案件发生时的特殊时刻正好在现场。

POTTER
OK, but that doesn't convict him?
波特
好,但是那不能证明他有罪呀?

JOINER
Correct. At this, in this particular instance, what we do is then hand this over to the investigator investigating the case and he or she would then just follow up on the information and determine whether or not it's valid information.
乔伊娜
正确。在这个特殊情况下,我们所做的是把这个交给调查员去对案件进行调查,他( 她)会根据这个信息决定它是否可靠。

POTTER
County Judge John Sloop believes the bracelet is an effective tool for preventing repeat crime.
波特
该县法官约翰·斯卢普认为,这种环套是防止再次犯罪的有效工具。

JUDGE JOHN SLOOP, SEMINOLE COUNTY, FLORIDA
I think it's a good idea. This is kind of like where an orthodontist will put braces on crooked teeth, where it asserts a gentle pressure over time and eventually they straighten out.
约翰·斯卢普法官,佛州的西米诺尔县
我认为这是一个好主意。这就像牙医给畸形牙装牙套,它能在相当一段时间内施以柔力,最终矫形成功。

POTTER
In some cases, the bracelets are offered in lieu of bail to defendants who otherwise couldn't afford to get out of jail before trial.
波特
在某些情况下,这些环套能代替假释,提供给那些在审理之前交不起假释费用的疑犯。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE
It just makes sense. It just, it gives the individual the ability to earn a living. It gives the individual the ability to be with his family and support the family. And we want that.
男被访者
它很有意义。它让疑犯有谋生的能力。它让疑犯能够同家人在一起,进而养活家人。我们需要这个。

POTTER
For this young man the price of freedom is that he is always monitored.
波特
对于这个年轻男子来说,自由的代价是他一直处于监视之中。
