Cameras, monitoring systems coming to Black communities

In the next few months Miami police expect to have technology in place to zoom in, identify, follow and watch residents in Overtown, Little Haiti and Liberty City. The city police department is moving forward with a complicated plan to allow them to watch up to 200 closed-circuit television screens at once in a new high-tech command center. There will be 25 high-definition, 55-inch television sets fed by up to 400 cameras placed around town.
