On this week's episode, reporters Kacie Candela and Jake Shore tackle the scandal-ridden Rikers Island jail complex. Ever since the suicide of Kalief Browder, a man who helped shed light on the issues and violence plaguing Rikers, his brother Akeem Browder has been an advocate for shutting down the jail complex. Now he's running for office and hopes to unseat Mayor de Blasio who has a Rikers plan of his own.
