Speaking as a photojournalist, there is no such thing as a “lawful command to erase photographs.” If any officer tried that with me, I would be in jail and a bunch of lawyers from my newspaper would be attacking the police station.

On the other hand, it is pretty common for a sergeant to come up to me and say, “please don’t print a photo of that detective. He is undercover.” Our paper will comply with reasonable, polite requests.
