Storyline

Examining the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small Southern town, SHOTS FIRED is a dramatic new event series that is a "why done it?" and a "who done it?" From Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "The Secret Life of Bees," "Love and Basketball") and Reggie Rock Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights," "Notorious"), the 10-hour event series is an explosive look at the criminal justice system. When an African-American police officer kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside-down. Before the town has a chance to grapple with this tragedy, the neglected murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, re-opening wounds that threaten to tear the town apart.

Goosebumps
23 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm Asian male that grew up in a working class neighborhood and episode 1 gave me goosebumps because it aligns so much with our reality. You probably thinking how can I say that when I'm an Asian male. Truth is, many of our struggles are similar to blacks in America. You may not know, but there is an Asian gang culture in every major cities in America due to the same reasons that make it hard for blacks to succeed in America. Any law enforcement officers in major cities can confirm this.

Many of the critics will tell you it's a race baiting/anti-police show because they are out of touch with reality and blindly support anybody with a badge while living in their echochamber. Also, they don't understand the difference between anti- police vs. anti-corruption.
