Up Close: NYPD Surveillance and Japan Earthquake
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Outrage continues to grow over the NYPD's secret surveillance of Muslims, and it's not just the Muslim community that's angry.
The FBI and the Justice Department say they too are concerned.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly is defending the NYPD's surveillance.
We get right to the heart of the matter, asking what's acceptable police intelligence gathering and when does it go too far?
Plus, Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami struck one year ago.
We take a look at the transformation of the damaged cities and introduce a new theatrical play exploring the untold stories of heroism and sacrifice in the midst of so much tragedy.
