A translation of the description of the YouTube video is:
'It was about 9am this Sunday when a car of the 9th Battalion (Rocha Miranda) went down the Intendant Magellan Road towards Marechal Hermes in the North Zone of Rio, with an open trunk. After rolling from inside and hanging on to the bumper of the vehicle only by a piece of clothing, the body of a woman was dragged for about 250 meters, beating against the pavement as the vehicle was passing. Although warned by pedestrians and motorists, PMs have not stopped. An amateur cameraman recorded this, passing by the scene, in a video'
The video was published on their website by Globo's Extra.
