Judge Frank Caprio knows that his job isn’t just about upholding the law, but about being fair and just when examining one’s circumstances.

Even when drivers are in the wrong and violate the rules of the road, he takes into consideration the fact that we are all human, and that we all make mistakes!

Drivers who end up in his courtroom don’t always experience their desired outcome, but many have known his kindness.

This time, as seen on Caught in Providence, a mom shows up in court with her two daughters because she failed to pay a $100 parking ticket and the subsequent fines.

When she stands before Judge Caprio, she tries defending her decision to park on the sidewalk, but he’s more interested in her 6-year-old daughter, who he even calls her up to the bench, asking her questions about herself and what she wants to be when she’s older.

The most surprising moment during the trial comes when the little girl tells him that she’s hungry after spending the morning in court, Judge Caprio makes a deal with the mom to buy her daughter breakfast and he dismisses them. littlethings.com
The British Museum dedicates its summer exhibition Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave to the beginning Hokusai.

90-year-old Hokusai joins Titian, Rembrandt and Turner, an artist who became more inventive, restless, curious and daring in his dotage.

Constructing 15 volumes of the Hokusai manga (1814–1878) while in his 70s, he was Manji, ‘ten thousand things’ and ‘everything’.

Known for his pictorial encyclopedia of frogs, snakes, samurai, sumo wrestlers, parasols, fish markets, farm ploughs, oceans and tea bowls, he painted everything he wanted to paint — everything. spectator.co.uk
Former Community Police Officer of the Year, Damian O’Reilly made a heartfelt appeal to May to reverse cuts to local policing which had caused intelligence about possible attacks to dry up.

"I felt passionate about what I was doing [but] ... the changes that have been imposed have caused community policing to collapse," O'Reilly says. 

Home Secretary at the time, May told officers budgets would continue to restrict, eventually funding an 18% loss in more than 17,000 policemen.

Representing rank and file officers in England and Wales, Steve White explains while deployment of soldiers on British streets was welcome, it only highlighted the strains forced on British police. businessinsider.com
A petition calling for Australia to put late conservationist Steve Irwin on its currency has gathered almost 20,000 signatures.

The chief executive of the Royal Australian Mint said the petition "highlighted the passion throughout a sub-section of the Australian community to recognise Mr Irwin" and invited people to send in a formal proposal.

Dying from a stingray stab to the heart, Irwin, a man the proposal labels the all-time greatest Australian bloke," has already appeared on Australian currency once in a commemorative series of dollar coins featuring Inspirational Australians.

"We believed that having a childhood icon and conservationist like Steve would be a great idea for his 10th anniversary," says petition founder Kyle Ryan. bbc.co.uk
Dan Tippett uses a spray can like a conductor uses his baton: expertly, effortlessly, and the result is mesmerising.

A legendary aerosol painter, once described by John Campbell as "a premier artist," Tippett would argue his craft's never seen as premier.

Tippett's career spans 20 years, his massive murals donning Auckland's Te Atatu tunnel, the Mangere Bridge, Soho Square, television sets, vinyl covers, albums and animation, and a fleet of vans in LA and NZ.

DT's smashing stereotypes by coming indoors for the first time in five years with his exhibition, Out Standing In My Field, a name derived partly from being an outsider as well as a tribute to his brother's stuido.  nzherald.co.nz
