A Tale of two Shots

[a shot is a disciplinary write-up] These are two very different disciplinary write-ups delivered to Eric for the same incident. Delivered 11 days apart…. Only ONE of these two things can be true. Did the Counter Terrorism Unit flag these union cards, or was it SIS officer *******? Why would the Counter Terrorism Unit of the BOP be so concerned with union cards? Why would FCI Englewood re-write this disciplinary shot after it was confirmed…

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.

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…

“We Got to Get Out of Here” a poem by Eric King

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…

“What it Means to Me”

I first heard your voice when I was 15 Had no idea what it was to be freeSheriffs kicking in doors, leaving furniture in the streets Learning you could starve if you didn’t have the means All the saints taught me, listen to no worldly kings Principal, coaches & priests, all the same things When the police blinded me with war chemicals laughter was my partner, I hadn’t broken my rulesAfter god went away, Anarchy…
