The ultimate message is that justice was not served because of one man's celebrity and many chance occurrences -- hardly a positive one. A man who abuses his wife doesn't serve jail time, which sends a message that domestic violence is tolerated.
Dead bodies are shown at length, with pools of blood and gore. We hear a terrified child leaving a message begging her murdered mom to call her back. Photographs of dead bodies are shown repeatedly, with grievous injuries discussed. A man threatens suicide, holding a gun to his head.

Unbleeped cursing: "s--t," "hell," "goddammit."
