Watch TIME: The Kalief Browder Story

This dramatic documentary recounts the tragic story of Kalief Browder, a Bronx high school student who was sent to prison for three years on Rikers Island. Kalief was 16 when he was accused of stealing a backpack, and since his family was unable to pay the $3000 bail he was imprisoned without even being convicted of a crime. The case was never taken to trial, the charges were ultimately dropped, and Browder tragically committed suicide after his release. The documentary exposes the flaws in our criminal justice system, and how not all citizens are treated equally.
