I don't see how those matter if the protagonists aren't addressing it.

Sure, you can portray the Americops as beating the shit out of civilians all you want, but if the narrative emphasis of the story is on how they have to prove Elvin innocent, and how they have to handle community reactions to prevent riots, and nothing about how they should get to work shutting the Americops down, then that's just minimizing and normalizing police brutality.

Like, in another comment you said the Americops exist because they need supervillains to fight. But they're not fighting the cops, they're fighting the courts and the rest of the criminal justice system.
