Voices from Solitary: Flipping the Script

By Eric King from Solitary Watch

My toilet is right next to my cellmate’s face, not hyperbolically, it is literally three inches from where he lays his head. I am in the FCI Englewood Secure Housing Unit (SHU)—the oddest SHU in the Bureau surely. In this segregation unit, you will get inmates from the Low [security prison], pre-trial people and folks like myself and my cellie who are on writ [having a court case] from other penitentiaries. This oddball combo makes no sense and causes a localized class system, all a part of the psych-ops of this odd rust bucket of a prison.

11/2/2020 Update On Eric

From supportericking.org

The week before last Eric was “accidentally” escorted into a room before his disciplinary hearing where the captain who authorized his prolonged 4 point restraints, (who was involved in beating him while he was cuffed up). was just chilling waiting for him. This is the second time this month he has been walked into a room that an officer who will be called to testify against him in his case was sitting in.

A Raging Heart

From supportericking.org

“It’s about how I’m feeling both physically and emotionally. The rage comes from not only the violence itself, but also their refusal to acknowledge their role in it. this annoying indoctrination where authority convinces us that we did these things to ourselves. Every time the head cracking is brought up someone will say “you should have kicked him” or “well you weren’t innocent”

Eric King: Call In Help Needed URGENT

From supportericking.org

It is important to note that the BOP has held Eric incommunicado since his last legal call. His 20 minutes a week he is allowed to prepare for his case was taken away with no explanation. The BOP is unresponsive as well as the prosecutor who STILL has not responded to this brutal attack.

The guard took the metal detection wand and swung at his Each of his ankles and then then he would lift his leg this officer would swing at the other. The guard then picked Eric up and dropped him on his head onto the concrete in the shower. He woke up after loosing consciousness for 10 seconds thinking they were pouring water on his face. But it was his own blood.

A Political Prisoner’s perspective on COVD-19

From Anarchist Black Cross Federation

“They aren’t doing testing here, they aren’t doing shit really. No hand sanitizer, no mask, no ‘social distancing’, the tiers and showers aren’t being cleaned even semi-daily, we still only get 3 showers a week and only 1 hr outside a day, typically super early in the gloom or rain. Medical staff told me they can’t even order tests! They have to refer it to a doctor, who then refers it to Regional, who then reviews it and decides whether to test or not.

Eric King No Longer able to receive mail

From supportericking.org

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. Further isolating a prisoner that you have on a suicide management plan.
