第二十七話 最終弁論
セレブ女優Courtney Reeseがパパラッチを銃で撃った事件で、Courtneyを弁護するAlanの最終弁論です。起承転結の構成になっています。

特段難しいフレーズや言い回しがあるわけではないので、特段のコメントは控え、原文をとりあえず構成に区切って掲載です。(手抜きではありません)

起: 猿の世界におけるセレブの存在を例に出し陪審の関心をひく

A neuro-biologist at Duke University conducted an experiment where he gave a group of thirsty monkeys a choice of either having their favorite drink, which was some sort of cherry juice concoction, or of having the opportunity to look at pictures of the dominant, ‘celebrity’ monkey in their pack. Despite their thirst and the allure of the cherry juice, they chose to look at the pictures. Apparently monkeys have a part of their brain that specifically responds to the thrill of celebrity. As do we.

承: 人間の世界におけるセレブの存在を考える

Think about that for a moment. A part of our intricate, fantastic and powerful mental machinery specifically responds to Courtney Reese and others who have achieved her level or notoriety. We have hundreds of magazines and websites to follow and track them, stalk them, not to mention cultivate a public obsession for them. It is totally and utterly out of control. Her fear of being followed, or assaulted or even murdered is not an irrational one. She receives threats on her life, obsessive declarations of love, psychotic musings about imagined relations or phantom encounters, and because of celebrity stalker websites her movements and whereabouts can be tracked to the second! That’s the world she lives in!

転: 今回の事件を具体的に上述のセレブ論に沿って考える

So, what happened that night? A man came towards her in the dark, quickly. She told him to stop; he didn’t, fearing for her life, she acted to protect herself. She didn’t shot to kill. She wounded him in the shoulder, to stop his charge. She was afraid. Was her fear reasonable?

結: 過去に起こったセレブの殺傷事件を引き合いに出し、セレブの護身の正当性を説く

Some years ago, a young actress named Rebecca Shafer was shot and killed by a fan in front of her apartment building. Monica Seles was stabbed in the back, on a tennis court during a match. Gianni Versace was gunned down as he stepped down from his home in Miami. George Harrison was stabbed in his home in the country; John Lennon was shot four times in the back by a devoted fan as he was coming home in evening with his wife. Courtney Reese carried a gun with her because of all that had come before, and she didn’t want to be next. That is reasonable.
