    URGENT: ERIC TRANSFERRED TO PRISON WITH NO GUARANTEE OF PROPER SECURITY DESIGNATION.

    UPDATE: MAY 4, 2022 CONCRETE CONFIRMATION ERIC IS CURRENTLY AT MAXIMUM PRISON USP LEE. KEEP UP THE CALL-IN CAMPAIGN TO DEMAND ERIC’S RIGHT TO LIFE. Eric received a response to his grievance filing within the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Friday April 29th at USP Atlanta about his improperly applied management variable forcing him into maximum security prison when in actuality he’s a medium/low security designation. He was told by the BOP he has no maximum management variable. Yet today, Tuesday May 3rd, Eric has been transferred on a bus heading east. And USP Lee staff (in Pennington Gap, Virginia) have told Eric’s supporters numerous times the buses head for…

    UPDATES AND NEEDS FOR ERIC’S PENDING TRANSFER TO PRISON

    WE NEED PEOPLE TO CONTINUE EMAILING AND CALLING STATE REPRESENTATIVES AND THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS EVERY WEEK. As we continue to address the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and state representatives, we have received nonsensical and conflicting information from the BOP regarding Eric’s pending transfer to USP Lee. For now, Eric is waiting at USP Atlanta, and it seems we have come full circle: originally in 2018, Eric was told at USP Atlanta and USP Lee his life would be in danger by white supremacist gangs if he ever did a long stint at USP Lee, and Eric was originally told the dangers of USP Lee shortly after he…

    ERIC EN ROUTE TO PRISON

    Eric King was COVID swabbed by guards at Grady County Jail in Oklahoma on the afternoon of April 13th, meaning imminent transfer to a federal prison. Eric has been told he’s designated for maximum security USP Lee in Virginia despite being threatened there by white supremacists and BOP KNOWING of this risk. Eric has made it very clear that doing a “check-in” with BOP or being in the SHU at USP Lee away from general population is not a way to guarantee his safety; he can still easily be isolated in cells with white supremacists, and is at risk for having more extreme mail bans, phone bans, no visitations, and…

    Mail is making it through!

    Eric is over the moon having his mail back and hearing from his friends! It’s making him feel so strong and ready to win in March and end this three and a half years of hell. Sitting indefinitely in segregation can really throw a wrench in the trial prep machine. It wasn’t until a year and a half in that he even had his glasses. He survived 18 months of communication restrictions. He survived so so much thrown his way. But beyond survival he is ready to dominate in March when he gets to finally have his trial. He wanted to send everyone love and thanks 🖤 and sat he…

    Eric’s Mail Ban Lifted

    Erics mail ban is over (for now) so please write him if you can. He would love to hear from people. It has been quite some time since he was able to receive letters from people outside his immediate family. (We have no idea whether there will be another mail ban). Please do not talk about his case and be mindful, that all letters are read by prison officials and potentially scanned/saved.

    Tight ropes, taut lines

    In the past three plus years I’ve been in the SHU (segregated housing unit), I’ve been directly aware of nine hangings. That is, occurred either on my range, in my cell, or near enough that I could hear the body hit the ground. Some of these were “cries for help”, some were serious, all were scarring and devastating. Almost always BOP staff hides behind either indifference towards our lives, or bureaucratic policy to avoid actually helping… at USP Atlanta they rushed in and yanked the prisoner down (by the legs), slapping them, yelling to “be a man, not a bitch!” at other institutions they laugh, yelling to quit faking.  Two years ago here at Englewood Levi hung up,…

    Eric King No Longer able to receive mail URGENT support needs

    The Warden at FCI Englewood has decided, during a global pandemic to remove all general mail from Eric. This illustrates so well the deliberate indifference that belongs to ALL wardens to the lives of prisoners. While further isolating Eric that you have on a suicide management plan.  For the next 6 months (until this restriction is re-evaluated) Eric will be unable to send or receive any mail from anyone other than his mother and wife.  This is completely devastating for those who care for Eric, worrying about the difficulties of him surviving torture while so isolated. But there is a bit of good news in this. Eric will still be…

    “Encouranging Others to Riot” by poem… the haps at FCI Englewood

    While the BOP is upgrading their website and pretending they have some sort of plan to keep folks alive during this pandemic, FCI Englewood is again up to no good. We can assume in a retaliatory (previously predicted) move inspired by either a) the court filings regarding the ongoing and constant abuse the BOP is continuing to serve Eric via FCI Englewood or b) the article that was published that exposes some pretty gross fash BOP/Guard, Eric has been given two separate severe disciplinary infractions. BOP Disciplinary Program Statement is available here if folks want to follow along https://www.bop.gov/policy/progstat/5270_009.pdf All disciplinary write-ups are categorize by severity level, 300’s being least…

    “Incarcerated Anti-Fascists Report Targeted Beatings by Guards”

    Folks should check out this article written by Ella Fassler that features Eric and other prisoners who have suffered numerous attacks by BOP fascists “The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is targeting Eric King, an unapologetically vocal anti-fascist, yogi and poet who has been incarcerated since September 2014, for his political beliefs. King was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison after being charged with attempting to set fire to a government official’s empty office building in support of the Ferguson, Missouri, uprising in 2014. On March 10, 2020, Sandra Freeman, King’s lawyer, filed a motion requesting a hearing related to ongoing abuse against her client and interference with the attorney-client relationship. “The institutional…

    Word from Eric amid the COVID-19 outbreak

    We have word from Eric. FCI Englewood has cancelled visits for 30 days. However, staff has yet to wear masks into the facility. With the BOP on a hiring freeze, it is going to get really interesting if prisoners start to get sick. The BOP has issued a statement saying that attorney visits are also suspended for 30 days. The BOP is so quick to cut outside visits because prisoners are such a vulnerable population, yet they will not spend the $.50 per guard per day to prevent staff from infecting prisoners. Eric says that they took “the good soap” leaving them with this horrible grainy prison-brand soap. Prisoners are also being denied access to the law library at FCI…
