Sort of? But it’s more of a criticism of copaganda. There are characters and scenes where law enforcement is wrongfully praised, but the narrative depicts this as a bad thing and the cops are certainly not made out to be heroes.

Ally is violent throughout the show, including when she is in the midst of dealing with her mental illness. And if you consider Kai to be mentally ill, the whole season is basically him being violent

I would say the main character has a good ending.

SPOILERS:

In the finale the main character Ally and her "friend" Beverly kill the man (villain) who ruined their lives. Ally poisons her wife who cheated on her and made her paranoid and insane. In the end she joins another cult. (That would be considered some what really extreme feminist)
