An informative post.

October 18, 2010

Hey there, so, if you’re at this site, it is likely that you’ve been directed here via a friend, an internet post, or  whatever. So, I will go ahead and skip the formalities and jump right into the meat of things; y’all know the drill by now, huh?.

  • LETTERS: I would love to get a letter from you, I just ask that you refrain from talking about abstract things like your “activism” or the “movement”. I would love to hear about your interests, passions, favorite song lyrics, crushing break-up story, or, vibrant and brilliant life. I will NOT respond to you if you make the terrible mistake of mentioning anything illegal (yes, smoking pot counts); DO NOT talk to me about anything you wouldn’t otherwise talk about in a police station with a pig breathing down your neck. 4×6 pictures are allowed. Polaroids are not. You can write me at:

Erik Oseland
297 Century Ave S.
Maplewood, MN  55119

  • VISITS: I am allowed to have one 20 minute video screen visit per week,  3 people can attend per session (infants count), and I can receive visits Mon-Fri 7:30AM-3:30PM. You must schedule the visit one business day ahead of time. We are coordinating my visits through the following e-mail to deter potential overlap:
  • MONEY: If you would like to send me money for Doritos, pillows, books, etc. Please e-mail:

Talk to you soon?
Thanks bunches!

With heart,

    Get some good radical reading material. Hang in there; the time will pass pretty quickly.

      The pigs never mentioned that. Send what ever you like; we will tell you if it is a problem.

        i didn’t have any issues with too many pictures ever, and definitely got more than ten in one envelope. they did have issue with me having too many books and/or papers in my cell, but you’ll figure that one out just as i did.
        point to supporters: don’t refrain from sending too much, worst thing they’ll likely do is put it in erik’s ‘property’ aka storage until release.

    Hey, friend
    Lansing has you in our thoughts. I hope you are ok, and being treated with some level of respect in there. You’re missed on this side.
