THE BRONX - The New York Civil Liberties Union is calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to fix the justice system they say is broken.

Members of the NYCLU brought their "Wheel of Justice" to the Bronx Wednesday and encouraged people to give it a spin. Many found they did not get justice and were more likely to end up in jail.

Members say the stories on the wheel's panels are true stories of people who fell through the cracks because of New York's justice system.

The NYCLU has filed a lawsuit about this issue that will go to trial in October.
