    Eric Abruptly Transferred With Urgent Medical Concerns

    On or around 8/3 Eric when in custody at USP Lee Eric woke up unable to use his left hand/arm whole side of his body. Unable to life his arm to brush his teeth. Slurred speech and paralysis of the whole left side of his face. When looking in the mirror he experienced mirrored-self misidentification which means that he did not recognize himself in the mirror. His brain could not connect that was him. Within 24 hours all symptoms were gone. Medical staff came by without entering his cell and told him it was bells palsey which is a paralysis of the facial muscles after an infection. The thing is…

    Erics birthday/Update/Message

    Yesterday Eric was transferred to USP Lee in Virginia. He will still not be allowed photos, books, magazines (we are looking into newspapers) or cards and will be housed in the segregated housing unit SHU. After a year he still unfortunately still has not been given glasses nor are his family able to send any. August 2nd It will be Erics birthday. After a super long exhausting year we would love for folks to be able to send some love. Since he is not allowed to be sent books in segregation and because the BOP no longer allows cards we are asking folks to send him interesting articles, cartoons, memes,…

    Update and message from Eric

    On June 21st Eric was picked up from USP McCreary and brought to the federal transfer center in Oklahoma. We anxiously await to see if the BOP is ready to drop this bullshit once and for all and send him somewhere he can do his time in peace. Things feel super complicated because on June 18th Eric was in an altercation with his cell mate in segregation. After the prisons previous attempt to stick a nazi in with him this isnt a surprise. We are hopeful that he will be transferred without a disciplinary shot. The chance that all of this may start over again is terrifying. While Eric is…

    Update on Eric’s Attack and situation

    We have word for what went down with Eric at USP McCreary. On Friday may 13h the BOP’s attempt to send Eric to the CMU or communication management unit was rejected (his SMU or special management unit transfer request had been rejected 2 months prior). The BOP attempted to send him to these high security specialized prisons as a consequence for being attacked by a lieutenant and guards at FCI Florence, but we all can see it is a consequence for his continuing to speak out against the BOP and federal prison system. Communication management units are used to place prisoners in an incredibly isolated situation to severely limit communication…

    Eric Back in Segregation after attack at USP McCreary

    Last week Eric got news that his CMU transfer was rejected. He was placed on the yard at USP McCreary despite officers and lieutenants expressing their knowledge he was in danger being an anti-fascist prisoner. The 280 days of solitary confinement has done emotional damage to him and he couldn’t stand the thought of 6 more months that would be given to him if he chose to be safe and refused to enter general population. On the yard he was told that the “long term” phone block Eric has would end after “a few years of good behavior”. This means no hope of talking to his family anytime soon. Monday…

    Update on Erics Confinement

    We have word from Eric. He is being held in segregation at McCreary. He was immediately intercepted by SIS officers upon arriving and put into the special housing unit. It appears McCreary is just a spot to hold him while the BOP is working out where they send him. Right now he can not receive books, photos, post cards or cards. EVERYTHING needs to be written in blue or black ink on standard paper. Please do not use any thicker stock or borders on the paper. Letters with mailing labels will be rejected. Eric is only being allowed 2 envelopes a week so there is a good chance he will not…

    Eric placed at USP McCreary

    This morning Eric showed up in the system as being placed at USP McCreary. Though he is at a point level for a lesser security prison the BOP decided that (because he had been assaulted by staff) he is too dangerous for a prison of that security level so they gave him a “management variable” so they could place him. Florence was able to choose Eric’s destination, the BOP has no problems with the prison who tortured a prison to further implement their will and take their reccomendations. We dont know if he will go into General population at McCreary. Or if this is a placment while they continue to…

    UPDATE Eric King 2/12/2019

    Update 2/28/2019 Eric has been moved to the Federal Transfer center in Oklahoma. The phone block is still in place. We will update when he is placed at a new prison and what we can do to continue to fight to open the lines of communication with his family.   Update 2/12/2019 We received an update regarding his disciplinary hearing. We think it is important to share Eric’s words rather than us try to explain the trauma that is involved in these hearings. As of right now communication is still restricted between Eric and his partner. Eric has filed a grievance and then two appeals to the grievance. Both times…
