posted an update
On Tuesday, March 10, 2020 Eric’s legal team filed a motion asking the 
judge to have Eric removed from the Secure Housing Unit (SHU) in FCI 
Englewood, where he has been held since this case started in August. 
Judges in criminal cases do not ordinarily get involved with where a 
prisoner is held, but the judge can take action to protect Eric’s right 
to meaningfully work with his defense team and prepare for trial. 
Throughout the past six months FCI Englewood has subjected Eric, his 
family, and even his legal team to unconstitutional and illegal 
treatment, so on Tuesday, the attorneys filed a motion asking the judge 
to intervene.

Eric waived a lot of important rights in order to have this declaration 
filed in court and tell the world what prisoners in the FCI Englewood 
SHU experience with the prison administration every day: retaliation, 
restrictions on communication, witnessing suicides, threats to children, 
cell tosses, double-bunking in an 6x8 cell, and monitoring and 
harassment of any supportive people on the outside

/*Also available below.*/

Eric and his legal team submitted evidence from the last six months of 
Eric’s imprisonment, including a 19 page declaration from Eric, a 
declaration from one of his lawyers, and documents to back up what Eric 
and the lawyer say in their declarations.

The evidence submitted to the Court shows that Eric’s family has been 
threatened.

Eric has been repeatedly questioned about the political beliefs and 
activities of people on the outside who support Eric, and the prison has 
prevented Eric’s partner from visiting because of her ideology

At one point, Eric went on hunger strike because the prison was ignoring 
his requests for better treatment. The hunger strike happened at the 
same time Eric was doing the internal appeal of how the prison was 
treating him.

The prison has also interfered with Eric’s ability to talk to his 
lawyers about the mistreatment Eric and his family are experiencing.

We will end this update with one of Eric’s recent poems and a story 
about Levi Roberts. Levi Roberts was a young person who had not been 
convicted of a crime but who Englewood brought into the FCI SHU 
pretrial. On December 31, 2019, he committed suicide on Eric’s tier in 
the SHU. Eric’s efforts to speak out about witnessing the suicide 
resulted in the prison administration retaliating through disciplinary 
write-ups, illegal sanctions, and keeping Eric alone without his 
property, a phone call, or legal paperwork for a week. Eric’s poem is 
included here with the request that people truly share and contemplate 
the conditions Eric and Levi Roberts and so many others are experiencing 
while they try to defend themselves in court.

“The Wrong One”

Greilick holds the rope.
Excuses will get passed
“If someone wants to go they will”
And if someone wants to ignore mental health,
Ignore skipped medications
keep someone in a silent box
With no phone calls, no radio, no personal contact
No stimulation mentally whatsoever
They also will.
And Warden Greilick did,
Now Roberts is dead.
Deliberate indifference is state murder
Mail from his family arrived that same day
Medical needed to wait for an escort
Even though he was purple
Day cops will take the blame, but why?
They didn’t institute isolationist policies
Didn’t keep someone pre-trial and openly suicidal
Buried in a box, with all of the state’s pressure
No excuses are needed
A family lost a son
In the custody of this warden
They will never breathe again
Greilick will continue to collect that 6 figure check
The wrong neck got burned
The state got another

Levi John Roberts was murdered by federally sanctioned torture.

Eric will continue to speak out about abusive Bureau of Prisons 
behavior. Donations help Eric to know that he has community support when 
he speaks truth to power and help the legal team to keep doing what we 
are doing to defend Eric and his rights. Please feel free to share 
widely and keep checking in!
