Not direct abuse, but unethical care practices. Intentional aggression enforcement.

Technically no. There is sexual activity between minors and potentially adults and minors.

It is not clarified, though there is a scene where a clearly middle aged man is sexually involved with 2 women who appear to be underage.

Not only does the kid die, you see him beg for his life for more than minute. For several minutes before he's murdered, he begs, cries, and bargains for his life. You witness him bound and silenced with tape, shot in the head, and left in a shallow grave in the wilderness. Do not watch this if child death is a trigger for you. It's not even a "trigger" for me but this movie made me physically very sick to watch (just this scene, it's at the end). Good movie, important story that's very close to the real story... But it isn't for the faint of heart and the child murder scene is gratuitous.

There are multiple instances of the N word at a minimum. I believe the word "fag" is also used in the film.
