Camden, NJ, one of the poorest, most drug-ridden cities in the country, has a murder rate 12 times the national average. In 2011, the city cut its police force almost in half, with nearly 80,000 residents regularly policed by 12 cops at a time. The state stepped in to overhaul the department, introducing an experimental "Metro" security apparatus equipped with futuristic technologies like gunshot detecting, triangulation microphones and automatic license-plate readers. As similar surveillance systems are implemented across the country, Vikram Gandhi goes to Camden to see how these tactics are working, how residents feel about their loss of privacy and what the future of policing might be.

A decade ago, the crisis in Darfur was a cause celebre. American politicians, activists and celebrities took to the media to condemn Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir for his brutal genocide, sending out a call for justice and rallying aid for his victims. Today, world attention has waned, despite the fact that President Bashir remains in power. People continue to die, and millions of refugees remain in overburdened camps filled with malnourished children. Without sufficient aid from the international community, Sudanese rebel groups are stepping in to fight for justice on their own terms. Ben Anderson goes to refugee camps in Chad and Sudan to meet the victims the world has forgotten, as well as the rebels poised for civil war.

VICE is executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith, Eddy Moretti and BJ Levin; consulting producer, Fareed Zakaria.
