Series Description:
As America elects its next president and Black Lives Matter protests erupt across the country, this captivating documentary series rides alongside cops and ventures inside courts and jails in one of the nation's toughest states: Florida.

American Justice follows the story of State Attorney for Jacksonville Angela Corey as she runs for re-election in Florida's "Murder Capital". Angela's tough approach to crime divides opinion in America and as her campaign gets underway, tensions between the black community and law enforcers are running high. Then a gruesome double-murder in a trailer park leads to a cross state manhunt and a boy is sentenced in adult court for a murder he committed when he was just twelve years old. But it’s when an unarmed black male is shot dead by police that things really come to a head.
