It seems at first the dog was killed in a house fire, but returns the next day in good health.

The husband of the elderly assistant at his firm was beating by the klan. If my memory serves correct, he died/almost died from a heart attack or stroke and she ends up leaving.

Kind of. Two rapists try to hang a young girl after brutally raping her. The branch is too weak and breaks. A young female law clerk is tied to a post with her wrists above her head. She is left that way at least overnight.

A young girl is tied up, brutally raped, has full beer cans thrown at her, she is urinated on, the men try to hang her but the branch is too weak & it breaks. The men then throw her in the truck, drive to a cliff & throw her over. She falls 30 feet.

A young girl is snatched off the street and raped. She is ultimately released but seriously injured.

A law clerk is abducted by the Klan & taken out of town where she is stripped, beaten, & tied to a post. She is left there until another Klan member frees her. She is then hospitalized for a few days due to her injuries.

Though there is a scene where a law clerk breaks into a mental institution, but only to an office. A doctor who heads the mental institution gives testimony in court as well.

The n-word is heavily used against black people and weaponised throughout the film, mostly by white people, with and without the hard r.

This question is worded in an odd way. This does have a happy ending. As happy as it can be anyway for a story about the rape of a young girl that causes injuries so severe she will never have children.
