Abstract

Just World is an anti-police procedural examining the complexities that minorities encounter within the police precinct. The nonlinear plot follows Abel Palmer's rape by a fellow officer. The psychological aftermath and impact of the rape is narrated through multiple and alternating first-person perspectives. Violence acts as a theme connecting the rape to the aggression enacted against officers of racial minority.
