Friday April 15th- Finish the week strong- Focus on USP Lee

Eric was moved from Grady County yesterday and ended up at USP Atlanta. We are not sure whether he is there or at USP Lee yet.  USP Lee is the maximum security prison where he spent 2 weeks in the segregation unit before being sent to Colorado for his case two years ago. On the way to USP Lee last time, Eric was threatened by white supremacists and told to not go in general population. His life is in danger due to this move.

Yesterday, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director of Research Justin Mazzola wrote a letter to Bureau of Prisons director Michael Carvajal about Eric’s situation. In it, he wrote,

“ Transferring Eric King to a maximum-security facility across the country, far from his family and loved ones when he has such a short amount of time remaining on his sentence seems to be more retaliatory and punitive rather than necessary due to specific security concerns”

“The BOP must revisit the issues within Eric King’s security profile which allow his eligibility to be at a maximum-security facility and the decision for him to be placed so far from where his family resides and where he intends to settle upon release”.

Now that Eric’s arrival at USP Lee is imminent, we are asking you to finish the week strong and contact staff at USP Lee and the Bureau of Prisons.

Urge them to them to:
1- Transfer Eric out of USP Lee immediately by dropping his maximum management variable.

2- Not force Eric to choose between the SHU (23-24 hours a day in cell, no books, no phone, no email, no visits) and walking the yard with an active death threat against him.

3- Assess his situation immediately. The threat against his life is already documented. There is no need to prolong this process. Eric has 18 months left and needs to prepare for release, not fight for his life against white supremacists.

All contacts for the call

We added some new BOP contacts and the Congressional Rep for Virginia’s 9th district (where USP Lee is located). Make sure to impress upon him this is happening at a prison in his district.
