This Sunday, September 27, VICE on HBO will release their special report, "Fixing the System," which details the mounting civil rights crisis taking place in our criminal justice system. The special also follows President Barack Obama on his historic tour of the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in Oklahoma—the first time in history that a sitting president has visited a federal prison.
In this comprehensive special report VICE founder and correspondent Shane Smith accompanies Obama on his visit as he speaks with inmates. Shane also interviews members of the judiciary and community reformers about the current failings of the way we deal with crime in our country, and the challenges that lie ahead for those who want to change it.
The special will air on HBO this Sunday, September 27 at 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
