Was Race a Factor in Henry Glover's Shooting?
From our partners at the Times-Picayune -- federal prosecutors say that two of the officers accused in the shooting death of Henry Glover and alleged cover-up were involved in "unrelated, racially tinged incidents" in the days before Glover's death.
According to court filings, Officer David Warren, whom prosecutors have charged with shooting Glover, allegedly fired a shot over the head of a black man walking nearby on the morning of Sept. 2 -- the day Glover died.
And in another filing, prosecutors say Officer Greg McRae -- who has been charged with beating the companions who brought Glover to the police compound at Habans Elementary School and setting fire to the car containing Glover's body -- pointed a gun at a black man who had come to the police compound days earlier and told him, "Get back before I shoot your black ass."
