Note from BW of Brazil: It’s a sad  reality in Brazil. If you’re a black male and you’re stopped by Military Police, all you can do is hope for the best as too many stories have shown, the outcome can be tragic. Today’s situation is simply the latest in this history. The young man involved himself understood how it could have turned out. Of course there will be those who will say it was “just an accident”, but the point here would be, anytime one points a loaded weapon in another person’s face, the door has already been opened to tragedy.
