Looking at the picture and having worked with Photoshop for a couple of years, its looks fake to me.
If you look at the pic of the officer on horseback with his back to the viewer, to his right on the other side of the tree is what looks like a copy of him, perhaps using the clone tool or some cutting and pasting. The branches of the trees also look somewhat suspicious, almost like they were cloned in as well.

Earthtone I'm with you, the stride is exactly the same, if you compare pictures its almost the exact pose.
The author of the photo explains the white spot as well as how the street lights began to turn on in sequence .
This is the reason why the photo shows motion (those knowledegable about photography will know the reason why)Furthermore, the Carabineros were som 20 meters distant, and I employed the camera's optical zoom (10x) which added to the blurred result.
It was a cloudy day and the sun was hidden, for which reason my digital camera ( Kodak DX6490) adjusted to low speed (1/10 seg.).
