      Eric was picked up from Grady County Jail in Oklahoma at midnight last night and taken on a plane to the prison he was designated. We just received a phone call and he has been placed at FCI Englewood! Over the past two years pre-trial, all of the fights and horrible experiences, seeing the Rocky Mountains was a moment in which he knew he could finally breathe. Tonight he looked out his window and watched…

Urgent Action Needed Now: Don’t Let CCA Censor Eric King’s Mail!

As folks know, Eric’s mail is being censored and political letters and literature are being rejected. It is important to keep the pressure on CCA Leavenworth to stop censoring Eric’s mail. According to Warden Isaac Johnston, it is up to the guards to use discretion in deciding which groups can be labeled as hate groups and have their correspondence rejected. This means that mailroom employees can use their own political ideology to decide what mail…

Eric is clearly being…

Hometown heroes forget we exist within morality the person shooting up was once someone’s everything cuddly kids call the president a primate, cause they hate his pigment not racist if it’s politics just more social biggots one pump of blood away from being a fleeting memory once pump and pull away from an unwanted family villains in our lives aren’t just symbols they’re existing placing more importance on critical moments instead of having joy in…
