Life is a Precious Gift

(upbeat music) (whooshes) Rebecca Garland. Good morning, Rebecca. Good morning. Rebecca, you seem very happy this morning. Were you happy when you went through the red light? No. Um, no. You were in a hurry. But I put things in perspective. I’m a cancer survivor and tickets don’t matter quite as much in the grand scheme of things when you’re dealing with a life threatening illness. Well, you have a great attitude. Thank you. You know, one thing that strikes me when I talk to people who survived a major illness, right? And they all say the same thing. And what they say is, “Life is a precious gift. “Enjoy every minute of it.” Absolutely. Sometimes we take life too serious, you know? That’s right. We get so carried away with our own self-importance, we think we’re important. It’s easy for me to get up here and think I’m like, really a big deal. I don’t think that at all, but you know. I’m not into that superiority attitude, you know. I think I can even enjoy life here and help other people enjoy life to an extent. Now, after I fine you a lot of money you’re gonna say, “I’m not enjoying this. “What is this guy talking about?” (laughing) All right, you chose to go through a red light at Eddy Street and Dudley Street. I did. Why? I have these three month appointments with my oncologist and I get really nervous before them. And I just ran the light. You were so preoccupied with you condition and what the oncologist is gonna say and the last thing you were thinking about was a red light, right? That’s actually true, yeah. I understand that more than you know. All I can tell you is, I’m not even gonna look at the video. Based on what you’re telling me, I’m gonna dismiss this case. Oh, thank you. Well, you make a wonderful presentation. And best wishes are with you. Thank you, thank you Good luck. The matter is dismissed. Thank you. I appreciate it. Come on! How cool was that?

  1. Eddy St and Dudley St again. If anyone wants to know that corner is outside Rhode Island Hospital. It is a T-section now as the I-95 off ramp was closed and torn up. The only traffic a person turning right onto Dudley could encounter is traffic turning left onto Dudley under a green light arrow. Also pedestrians. Please exercise caution in that area.

  2. Amazing lady. May God bless you with countless blessings coz you have a wonderful and cute smile. The judge is always extra amazing and wonderful person on this planet.

  3. I usually support this judge in his acts because he seems very "honest" and understands who is in front of him. But this time I think he took a bad decision. This woman basically told him that she has regular appointment with her medic and she gets nervous because of that while she drives there. So this may happen again, and they both know it. The fact that you get nervous is not a good excuse for running a red light, she could have killed the other person going the other way. He should have fined her, because if she cant contain her hurry enough to not run a light and risk killing another person (or herself) someone has to do it, maybe the money of the ticket would have helped her contain her nervousness while she drives to her doctor. Maybe not the whole ticket because she was in good faith but don't dismiss it. I know this sound hard on her but lets be real, you can't let a person go because "she was nervous".

  4. Hi, hello, as always stated a good and respectful attitude does the job, thank you very much, judge Mr. Caprio,for teaching us from your explanation of your decisions. And lucky lady good for you too.

  5. It seems like people walk into the courtroom, and smile knowing that if they plead guilty, their fine will be reduced or forgiven. So many authorities do not consider the human elements, or the circumstances under which violations occur. This judge will ask questions, really listen, and try to ascertain the conditions at the time a "mistake" happened, e.g. tired, shift change at work, victim is waiting for help, child sick at school, or in this case her being "zoned out". Well, cancer happens and that's a part of life challenges, but the judge thankfully sees the wisdom of not further burdening families or individuals. Bless you x3.🙏

  6. When my faith in humanity is sorely tested, I turn to Judge Caprio to remind me that there are good, wise, and compassionate people.
