Leavenworth, Kansas 66048
Birthday: August 2
Eric G. King, a 29-year-old vegan anarchist, was arrested and charged with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in
Kansas City, MO in September 2014. Eric was being charged with throwing a hammer through a window of the building, followed by two lit Molotov cocktails. The criminal complaint states that both incendiary
devices failed to ignite.

On March 3, 2016, he accepted a non-cooperating plea agreement to one count of using “explosive materials to commit arson of property used in or affecting interstate commerce.” The statutory minimum and maximum for this charge is 10 years. He will likely be sentenced in summer 2016 (check back often for the actual sentencing date once we have it). He will remained locked inside the private prison that he has been held hostage in since his arrest until he is sentenced, at which point he will be transferred into the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for the remainder of his sentence.

Eric was identified as a suspect by local police because he had previously come under suspicion for anti-government and anti-police graffiti. He is currently being held in the Corrections Corporation of America’s Leavenworth Detention Center.

Since his arrest and subsequent incarceration, he has been extremely isolated from his loved ones and has repeatedly been targeted by the guards, who have regularly put his safety in jeopardy. Eric was held in segregation for six months at one point and is often subjected to stints in “the hole” after the guards target him. Despite these struggles, he continues to maintain his good spirits and resolve to see this situation through to the end. He is also maintaining his dedication to struggling for a world free of domination and oppression.”
