Eric G. King, a vegan anarchist, was arrested and charged with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in Kansas City, Missouri in September 2014. Eric was charged with throwing a hammer, followed by two lit Molotov cocktails, through a building window. 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.” Then, almost three months later, on June 28th, at the federal courthouse in Kansas City, Missouri, Eric was sentenced to ten years, the statutory minimum and maximum for the charge to which he pleaded guilty. His release date is June 2nd, 2023. For more information, visit https://supportericking.org
