Linked to this. What surprises me is how many media accounts refer to him as "the Brazilian." In writing this elegy, you've given the man back his name. Thank you for that.

When'ee say 'An inquiry awaits in the stiff lipped British style, bloodless' you of course mean a trial, for when a police officer shots a man in this country, he is tried for murder. This is, as you will appreciate, a rather more riggerous inquiry than an officer migh undergo in another land, which is one of the reasons British amred police have the best shoot/don't shoot ratio in the world.
