A man is arrested by police and struggles, he's carried out, one officer holding each of his arms, as he thrashes back and forth. Police break into the home of a man, they take the man out and gunfire is exchanged (no bodies or injuries are shown; the scene is chaotic and it is hard to discern what else is going on).

-We see photographs of a man with chains on his wrists, and another with a man holding a gun to the man's head.

-A television is shown playing news clips depicting inhumane conditions faced by Guantanamo Bay prisoners: several prisoners are shown being handled by guards and a message from kidnappers states that their hostage will be subjected to the same inhumane treatment unless the conditions in Guantanamo change; if they do not, the kidnappers threaten to kill the hostage. There's footage of Middle Eastern warfare, which includes bombs, explosions, missiles being launched and troops in combat.

-We hear that after trying to escape a man was chained to the motor of a car as a method of torture. Men are told over the phone that a man's body has been found and that it is in the morgue. An official makes a remark that he'd like to "hang them up by their feet and beat them with sticks." A man is warned by several people to be careful when meeting with another man and that as long as he is in a public place he'll be fine. Remarks are made about purifying Islam through violence. There are discussions of deplorable treatment of detainees by Americans. There are discussions of violent acts: The bombing of the Word Trade Center, the 9/11 attacks, etc. We read that several people were sentenced to lengthy jail terms, and one was hanged.

-A woman screams during labor and childbirth and we see the baby emerging between her legs and covered with blood and goo. A pregnant woman grimaces and complains of pain.

-A man is pushed down into a street, he gets up and is OK. Police search through a woman's home after her husband has not returned from a meeting and she becomes increasingly uncomfortable with the invasion of their privacy. A wife worries about the whereabouts of her husband when he does not return home from a meeting.
