We see full frontal nudity from Patty as she lies in the bathtub. The SLA have sex with each other and discuss their various sexual practices from fornication to homosexuality to mastrubation and put marriage down as outdated bourgeois. Patty and her boyfriend appear to be cohabiting before Patty's abduction.

Some gunshots during Patty's abduction.

Wendy threatens to slit Teko's thoat when Teko threatens her.

Some people are shot as they enter a bank during a robbery.

Some people are shot at as they attack SLA members.

An LAPD shootout is seen on TV resulting in a building being set on fire, apparently with no intention of even attempting to take the SLA members prisoners.

'Fuck' is said many times, a black man refers to himself as a 'nigger' several times, other profanities used are 'bitch', 'damn', 'hell', piss' and 'shit'.

Some people smoke cigarettes.

The kidnapping and bank robberies could be intense for some viewers as could the footage of police burning the SLA's Los Angeles 'safe house'.
