Video Justice is a reality television primetime program (also known as a documentary) produced by John Langley airing on the television cable station truTV, and is part of network's truTV RED lineup. The program focuses on criminals who were captured on camera in the act of the crime. The crimes are often "life or death" situations that may involve one of the two parties, either law enforcement or the criminals, being killed or seriously injured. It often displays pictures of the suspect in most of its footage, and tells you the name of that suspect who of which committed that crime and describes their punishment. The primetime show runs for 30 minutes.
Cameras used in the footage in Video Justice include dashboard cameras, spy cameras, news cameras, and others taped by various people, sometimes including criminals themselves.
The basic idea of the show is that is proves that you don't need a witness of the crime after the crime, proving that the video tells all or most of the details. as well as the officer's most powerful and essential tool within the war against crime. Most of the footage shown is actual shocking police moments, while other crimes are bizarre.
Video Justice also proves that the video camera is powerful and plays a serious role in these kind of crimes and proves useful as evidence.
Some of the footage shown is the same footage seen in Most Shocking, explaining the same information, usually with clearer explanations. The suspects' mugshots shown are the same as the ones in Most Shocking, as well as some of the police that tell the stories.
