    Federal authorities to monitor Newark police

    Tuesday, July 22 2014 9:37 PM EDT2014-07-23 01:37:12 GMT
    Newark police engaged in the excessive use of force, routinely stopped people on the street for no legitimate reason and regularly stole property from civilians, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded in a report released Tuesday that set the stage for federal monitoring of the police department that serves New Jersey's largest city. The report is the culmination of a three-year investigation begun months after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint.

    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City.

The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.
