    Watch: Trailer for Vice Special on Broken Criminal Justice System, Featuring President Obama (Sept. 27)

    Lame duck president? What lame duck president?

    President Obama will make the first-ever Presidential visit to a federal prison for an upcoming "VICE" special that will tackle America's broken criminal justice system.

    The VICE special will air this fall on HBO, offering an in-depth look into the dire impact the current criminal justice system is having on millions of Americans - especially black Americans. I'm sure we're all familiar with the term "prison industrial complex," which also happens to be the title of a recorded 1997 speech by Angela Davis, later released as an audio CD that served as the basis for her book of the same title.

    America is home to 5 percent of the world's population, but 25 percent of the world's prison population - a prison population that has risen 700 percent since 1970, according to the press release from HBO.
