Update on continued repression of anarchist prisoner Eric King. Originally posted to Support Eric King.
Eric’s partner posts a blog speaking out about the abuse they are suffering at the hands of FCI Englewood. She expresses concerns that because of the choice to speak out and share their story, staff would attempt to illegally restrict visits. Staff have been instructed to check his support blog daily as well as numerous newspapers in case any messages are being given to him via the USA Today (lol). 7 hours and 42 minutes later Eric received his first shot (disciplinary write-up) for using the bathroom and being unable to stand for count. 5 hours later he receives another. He received a total of 5 shots in 24 hours. Not standing for count, hanging clothes to dry…

2 days later on a Saturday he is brought into the UDC (unit discipline committee) where staff attempted to illegally impose disciplinary sanctions which removed his ability to visit. When Erics wife attempted to visit on sunday she was told their visits were removed.
Eric has been able to challenge this retaliatory illegal removal of visitation. And just as he made them aware…the UDC staff did not have the power to restrict his visits since he is being held indefinitely in Administrative segregation it is considered cruel and unusual to remove visits for these “disciplinary violation.” The SHU Lt and Captain backed him up after he was able to show these restrictions were illegal and his visits were restored. They only lost 1 week of visiting, however we remain concerned. It’s one thing or another…. FCI Englewood is still up to no good.
We fully expect to experience more and more creative illegal action against visits and an increased attempt to hold him incommunicado. Be it denying legal visits, stacking him with shots on the order of the warden or just old fashioned violence… at this point its all up in the air.
Eric could use any and all letters, articles, and dad jokes to help him withstand this bullshit. They all serve a dual purpose as well because every single letter shows the warden and prison administrators we are watching!
