Southern Justice offers a voyeuristic look into the world of law enforcement in an area where the crime culture mainly revolves around alcohol and drugs. It also highlights some of the larger implications these crimes have on the overall communities, including the rise in production, sales, and use of designer drugs in the area, and how this correlates to the increase of reported violent crimes.

It's not always the most action packed show, but Southern Justice offers some insight into the unique social problems that these rural areas are facing today. Watching some of the officers being polite and sympathetic while doing their jobs is also a refreshing change when comparing them to other police-themed reality TV shows. Overall, if you like this sort of reality fare, you will probably find it worth watching.
