Newark Police Camera System Relies On Residents, Stirring Privacy Concerns

To bolster safety, the high-crime New Jersey city is installing hundreds of cameras. But the new technology is raising civil liberties issues, as the footage is available to anyone with a cellphone.

After speaking at the U.S. Naval Academy's graduation and commissioning ceremony, President Trump tweeted, "To the @NavalAcademy Class of 2018, I say: We know you are up to the task. We know you will make us proud. We know that glory will be yours. Because you are WINNERS, you are WARRIORS, you are FIGHTERS, you are CHAMPIONS, and YOU will lead us to VICTORY! God Bless the U.S.A.!" Patrick Semansky/AP hide caption
