Word from Eric amid the COVID-19 outbreak

From supportericking.org

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.

What It Means To Me

From supportericking.org

I first heard your voice when I was 15
Had no idea what it was to be free
Sheriffs 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 rules
After god went away, Anarchy never faded

From supportericking.org

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…
