UPDATE- Eric in Quarantine with COVID and Mail Ban TEMPORARILY Lifted- Message from Eric

On the 27th Eric and 95 other prisoners tested positive at FCI Englewood. Per a letter from the 22nd it seems that someone in Erics unit had been sick for 6 days and was not tested or isolated from even his cellmate. Despite the fact Englewood has had a rapid screen machine since may per FOIA documents. (https://www.bop.gov/foia/docs//Current_AbbottIDNow_Machine_Locations_5192020.pdf) They also failed to follow protocol and because of that in a single day they had 95 positive tests.  This is…

11/2/2020 Update Eric

The week before last Eric was “accidentally” escorted into a room before his disciplinary hearing where the captain who authorized his prolonged 4 point restraints, (who was involved in beating him while he was cuffed up). was just chilling waiting for him. This is the second time this month he has been walked into a room that an officer who will be called to testify against him in his case was sitting in. He wanted…

“The brutality doesn’t stop with the arrest” 2 poems by Eric King

#1 Police Brutality is state brutality, it’s the media calling a protest “violent”after pigs fired weapons and toxins, into crowds of people exercising their “rights”. If the knee hadn’t strangled George,the “justice “system would have. He would have been arrested for trying to exchange non sanctioned paper placed into federal custody.He would have waited months before being sent to federal prison stripped of his “rights”, dignity, family contact ….for YEARS. Police brutality is more than…

“A Raging Heart”

“it’s about how I’m feeling both physically and emotionally. The rage comes from not only the violence itself, but also their refusal to acknowledge their role in it. this annoying indoctrination where authority convinces us that we did these things to ourselves. Every time the head cracking is brought up someone will say “you should have kicked him” or “well you weren’t innocent”… As if I slammed my own head into the ground. Not a…

These are some of the latest rejections that the FBI determined there was no grounds for prosecution. In addition, the write-up that Eric received after he was attacked by an officer On April 3rd…

I was thrown into segregation two years ago on August 17th and was kept within for a year pending prosecution, then after they brought these new charges, we’ve done another year…

Call In Help Needed URGENT

We also desperately need his legal defense fundraiser shared around to fund his legal team to fight this and anything else thrown his way. … please share and encourage others to share! https://fundrazr.com/e1cKo1 It is important to note that the BOP has held Eric incommunicado since his last legal call. His 20-minutes-a-week legal call to prepare for his case was taken away with no explanation. The BOP is unresponsive, as well as the prosecutor who…

Deliberate Indifference

How would it make folks feel to know that Eric had an active grievance filed about the officer that slammed Eric’s head into the concrete while his hands were cuffed behind his back in the shower? Or that FCI Englewood currently does not have an officer assigned to the specific facility that investigates officers who violate prisoners? Or that this officer has given Eric SIX bullshit disciplinary write-ups in the last 6 months? How about…
