Dying For A Fight

"Dying For A Fight," the second installment in Somethin’ Else’s "The Fault Line" series, investigates the killing of Sean Kealiher, an anti-fascist and anarchist. In 2019, months before the racial justice uprising and daily protests that would bring Portland international attention, Kealiher was killed while leaving a bar that was a known hangout for the city's anti-fascists. Nearly two years later, his homicide remains unsolved, and his mother Laura Kealiher believes police hatred for her son, and his politics, is the reason why. "Dying For A Fight" takes you on a personal level into the lives of those at America’s political extremes. This show is a co-production with Oregon Public Broadcasting.
