VICE is exploring America's prison system in the week leading up to our special report with President Obama for HBO. Tune in Sunday, September 27, at 9 PM EST, to see his historic first-ever presidential visit to a federal prison.
Fixing the System, VICE on HBO's special report on the American criminal justice system, was screened earlier today at El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in Oklahoma for a group of inmates. In attendance were the six inmates who met with President Obama this past July—the first time in history that a sitting president has visited a federal prison. We spoke to various inmates and captured their reactions below.
