Episode notes

Oregon’s long history of racism was what brought Sean Kealiher and so many protesters like him to the streets. 

The fights between anti-racist skinheads and neo-Nazis in the 80s and 90s set the stage for Portland to found America’s first official Antifa chapter.  

And Laura Kealiher says the way police are intertwined with those past fights makes her skeptical they will ever solve Sean’s homicide.
