Now this is why I love my president! Check him out as he visits and talks with federal inmates and prison officials for the first time ever in a special report for HBO’s VICE airing this Sunday, September 27 at 8 p.m.
According to the YouTube video, the show is hosted by VICE Founder and correspondent, Shane Smith and features the President Barack Obama’s historic tour of El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in Oklahoma in July.
The special offers a panoramic perspective on crime and punishment, and will follow all the key characters in America’s sprawling justice system, including prisoners and their families, members of the judiciary, and community reformers.
“There’s an emerging consensus in this country — on both the right and the left — that the way we treat criminal offenders is utterly broken and weakening our society in profound ways,” Smith said, explaining the significance of the documentary.
