Storyline

When a young couple -- war veteran Matt and his wife, Gwen Skokie -- are attacked in their Modesto, Calif., home, Matt dies and Gwen is left unconscious, barely clinging to life. As news of the brutal crime makes its way through the media, both sets of parents sit vigil by Gwen's bed, hoping for a miracle to keep her with them. The police investigation begins to close in on four suspects in the case, and shock waves radiate through the community, stirring up tensions along ethnic and racial lines. Written by Jwelch5742

A fresh look at race in America without offending anyone
26 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Lets face it, race has pretty much always been the number one talked about subject in America. For better or for worse it seems that no one will ever stop talking about it. Fast forward to America Crime which is a brand new crime drama centered on a few characters who are all connected through a murder and a rape. Did not think I would be interested in this drama but after the first episode I was hooked. The acting seems to be top notch and realistic from everyone. The artistic view of race relations in this show is amazing. It's slow paced yet the conversations are meaningful and deep. I believe race can be addressed without offending anyone and this show does it. I don't think it's so much that people are racist but it's more that people make assumptions based on what people look like, the music they listen too or the tattoos they have. This show will make you think about how you view the next person. It proves that no matter what race you are everyone has their own problems and usually the same problems of everyone else. Gave this a ten because most shows that come out don't live up to the hype of what the show is about. This show gives you everything it promised no more no less.
