The police told Times-Picayune former photographer Alex Brandon not to take photos of a police situation during Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath, the Times-Picayune reported. Brandon, on scene, was told not to take the photo of Henry Glover’s death. Glover was an Algiers man shot by the police in New Orleans who also, allegedly, set his car on fire.

Brandon explained the five-year-old incident to a federal jury who is currently hearing the case of the five policemen accused of Glover’s death and cover-up, the Times-Picayune reported.

Brandon described the scene as a “contentious situation” and said that he was specifically told not to take any photos by New Orleans police officer Greg McRae. “It was, for lack of a better term, an order.”
