Skinhead released from prison

Fox News/November 19, 2002

A man convicted in one of Oregon's most infamous hate crimes is set to be released from jail Tuesday. Former skinhead Kyle Brewster was convicted along with two other men in 1989, for the baseball bat killing of an Ethiopian man.

The death of Mulugeta Seraw, led civil rights activists to dub Portland "Skinhead City." The murder prompted state legislators to enact Oregon's groundbreaking hate crimes law, and sparked violent street fights between skinheads and their opponents.

The Oregon Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision considered Brewster for parole on May 23, 2000 -- But delayed his release until November 19, 2002, citing a worrisome psychological evaluation.

Brewster is set to leave the penitentiary in Salem sometime Tuesday and move to the Portland area.
