During the trial, one of the white kids (in a suit with a double Windsor knot in his tie and hair carefully combed to look simultaneously fancy, dirty, and emo, which seems like a lot for a teenage boy to manage when his mother is on trial for murder) testifies that Ray shot his friend when they were chasing Will with bats. The ADA then asks him whether his mom encouraged him. He is leading the witness, but the judge allows it because he should be considered a hostile witness, because he is a teenager. Er, rather, "because he is testifying against his mother." He says that his mom encouraged them to stand up to the bullies or they would get chased out of the neighborhood. He says that his mom made them bring the bats for self-defense because, she said, the boys probably had knives. Not looking good for The Profiler.
Ray's turn on the stand. He testifies that he was trying to protect his son and that he feels terrible about the little girl he accidentally killed. The ADA wants to know why he didn't just yell stop? Wasn't he mad that all the white people were moving into his neighborhood? Wasn't he mad that he got an eviction notice that day? Didn't he shoot the white boy because he was angry? Ray doesn't know. He just doesn't know.
The Profiler takes the witness stand. She claims that her boys were scared and wanted to move out of the neighborhood. She told them to stand up to the bullies. She drove them to the playground. She heard some popping sounds and then the boys came running back to the car. Instead of calling the cops, she took her boys home and lied to the police. Like any mother would. The ADA is not having that. He wants to know if she likes her new neighbors. She says yes. The ADA refutes that with a giant stack of complaints she has filed against her neighbors. While trying to explain about the cultural differences leading to the littering and noise complaints, she paints herself into a racist corner. Bad Profiler. No wonder your show got cancelled. And by the way? You are totally going to have to move.
