Eric G. King, a 28-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 is being charged with throwing a
hammer through a window of the building, followed by two lit Molotov
cocktails. The criminal complaint states that both alleged incendiary
devices failed to ignite. Scheduled to go to trial in July 2015, he is
facing up to life in federal prison.
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 last September, he has been extremely isolated from his
loved ones and has repeatedly been targeted by the guards, who have
repeatedly put his safety in jeopardy. Eric was held in segregation for six months. Despite these struggles, he continues to maintain his good spirits and his resolve to see his legal situation through to the end. He is also maintaining his dedication to struggling for a world free of domination and oppression.
