In July 2015, Barack Obama became the first sitting president to visit a federal prison. He invited VICE along to film the historic event for part of a documentary, Fixing the System, which investigated America’s broken criminal justice system.
This special originally aired on HBO in September 2015. VICE and HBO are making it available in full now for one week, as part of our announcement of the new VICE Apprenticeship Program, a six-month program to hire and train formerly incarcerated people to work at VICE.
