    The writer of the linked article indicated that they were “trying to figure out who this is.” This information is easily accessible over the net:

    From http://j.mp/oekRFL:

    It [the photo] was taken on March 23, 2011 during a public protest in the city of NiterĂ³i, Brazil (part of the Metropolitan Region of Rio de Janeiro) by Peter Kirilos of O Globo (The Globe), a prominent local newspaper.

    Publication of the image prompted an investigation by the state prosecutor, who filed a complaint in July denouncing the two military police officers involved, Captain Bruno Schorcht and soldier D’Angelo de Matos Pinel, and demanding their immediate suspension for abuse of authority.

    Subsequent news reports claimed Captain Schorcht was “punished” for his actions by being promoted to the rank of Major and transferred to another battalion, but according to O Globo columnist Ancelmo Gois, Schorcht’s name was “taken off the list” for promotion after the state prosecutor’s complaint was filed.

    I was immediately led to believe that this was an American tragedy. I responded as an outraged “African American”. And although this particular incident didn’t happen here. Make no mistake. Incidents like this and far worse are happening to “blacks” all over this country at this very moment!
