When the prisoners demanded to know what happened to their mail, the guards said that it had either been lost or misplaced. The guards also told them to file grievances if they were unhappy about it.

Eric Moved Back to General Population, Food Situation Marginally Improves

We’ve received confirmation that Eric has been moved out of solitary confinement to general population. He was even able to return to the pod (group of cells) that he had been in prior to being thrown in the hole, where he has friends and connections. We are hoping that his overall well-being will improve with this move, but are not trusting in CCA Leavenworth to have any consideration for him or any other prisoner. With…

Call, Email and Fax CCA Leavenworth and CCA Corporate to Demand Adequate Food for Eric King! UPDATED

Our calls have kept the prison bureaucrats annoyed, flustered and irate. And Eric has received a little bit more food a couple times—even though they’ve withheld food as punishment just as much. Eric has also had bureaucrats coming by his cell to assure him that they’re doing everything in their power to fix this situation. Whatever they’re doing, it’s not enough—not enough to get him the nutrition and caloric intake he needs each day. Not…
