Rewatch starting Aug 2022, there's definitely instances of vomiting, I'll update as I see them. S1E1 23:42, after telling Illeana her assaulter is dead, Olivia can be heard getting sick behind some stairs on the street. No visual.

All main characters are either cops or lawyers and they’re almost always portrayed as being justified in their actions - even when in clear violation of the law or when brutalizing suspects. A few episodes attempt to tackle police brutality and/or unethical policing, but it rarely effects the main characters. The few times it does effect main characters, they are typically portrayed sympathetically.

The episode “The Longest Night of Rain” features multiple suicides. So much so that the suicide hotline phone number appears before the end credits.

Multiple times in 4x21 — the episodes victim is a trans woman and she’s also referred to with a deadname, as the t slur, and as a ‘heshe’

Early episodes use retarded, I’m not sure if there’s much more than that. There’s an episode in season three covering a woman with Down syndrome and whether she’s competent to have a baby and live her own life.

Slurs "t*nny" and referring to transgender individuals as "he-shes" are used, especially in the earlier seasons.

The slurs “faggot”, “dyke”, and “tranny” are used pejoratively, especially in early seasons.

Some of the sex crimes are hate crime based — the earliest instance is 4x21 where a trans woman is described to have been assaulted since she was 12. Frequently by perps in all seasons and by cops in the earlier seasons.

Many episodes end tragically, either with a death, suicide, or a miscarriage of justice.
