* TheKlan: The Ku Klux Klan plays a pretty big role in the film. They support Carl's conviction, and Freddie Lee Cobb (whose grandfather was a Klansmen) enlists their help to sow mayhem. They protest in front of the courthouse, starting a riot with a black crowd, which interrupts the court's proceedings. The Grand Wizard is killed, but Freddie and the remaining Klan members continue to intimidate and send death threats to Jake to make him step down as Carl's defense attorney. He doesn't.

Added DiffLines:

** Jake browbeats the mother's if the rapists by asking them "How many other children did he rape?", causing them to burst into tears. Seems cruel, but that is precisely why their sons are dead.

Added DiffLines:

* WorthIt: While Carl regrets his VigilanteExecution's effects on the Cobb and Willard families, he doesn't regret killing Billy and Pete themselves one bit. Understandable, though, given their complete and unrepentant scumbaggery.

Added DiffLines:

** Jake also puts Carl Lee on the stand. While not forbidden, it's generally not done, for precisely what happens--the prosecution rips into his story and gets him to admit that he knew what he was doing.
** And Carl Lee wouldn't necessarily have walked free after his acquittal. He could still have been sent to a psychiatric hospital.

* ObviouslyEvil: The two rapists. From the moment they first appear on screen, you just ''know'' they're going to do something terrible.

* TwoDecadesBehind: The premise seems absurdly anachronistic, especially since the South couldn't have been ''that'' backward in the late 1980s and the Klan was rapidly being supplanted by neo-Nazi youth gangs by that point.

* FanDisservice: The sight of the shapely Sandra Bullock (as Ellen) being stripped to her underwear is completely undercut by the fact that it's in the course of a vicious Klan attack. She's not raped, but is left tied to a post in the middle of the woods so that she'll die of exposure.
