    I am very sad to hear that this young Ghanaian man has suffered like this for a crime he ha not committed. I hope that the wicked people who falsely accused him will also be taken to jail for trying to derail the life of a promising star

    It is a pity those who claim to stand for justice and support the opressed don’t know the first thing about it….when the person is black and ….international……..

    i am really shocked and surprised by this story.this is a complete travesty of justice.i am at a loss of words – knowing the person involved is a very good person.if the facts of the case is as is being reported in the local media(in US),then i believe justice and common sense should be made to prevail.we will continually give u our moral support and do something in our own small way to get justice.be strong and know that there are good people aiming at doing something to get a fair trial.Rest NOT!Saviola!!

    First of all I would like to say that it is very sad to see another black man in jail. There are more black men in jail then any other race. Our tax money are also been used for new prisons because there aren’t enough prisons for all the people being convicted. It is such a shame that America has now become a land of many types of racism and scandals including false accusations. Even though the American law system states that everyone accused or arrested is innocent until proven guilty, it is not always the case. I think they need to change that document around to GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT because what they are doing to this young man is strictly unfair not only to him but to all the other immigrants in America who are here trying to make the best of their lives.
    This guy is innocent and the jury and everyone know that but because they are trying to look for someone to make an example out of, they choose this innocent black man. I am very much aware that if the accused rapist were to be white, this matter would have been resolved much faster and that he wouldn’t be spending the amount of years Frimpong will be spending in jail.

    United States has now turned into a country of chaos and power. What do you get from laying and making someone else suffer for something he did not do. The young Ghanaian Boy was brought here to achieve his dreams and now this is what he gets from the American system. Everyone deserves the right to be free especially when they have not committed they are being accused of.
    America America America, it is time for us to rise up and look at what the system id doing to it. Why is it that they put something on a paper but yet when it’s time for them to make it a reality it becomes another story. We need to wake up and realize that they are taking our freedom away little by little and we need to do something about it now. It least I am talking to the “BLACK PEOPLE” of this nation. OUR freedom is being taking away and we need to fight very hard to take it back.
    I would do anything in my power to make sure that ERIC FRIMPONG IS RELEASED FROM JAIL BECAUSE HE DOES NOT DESERVE THIS KIND OF TREATMENT AND IT SUCH A SHAME THAT THE AMERICAN SYSTEM IS SOO CORRUPTED(419) SOMETHING MUST BE DONE AND IT MUST BE DONE VERY SOON.
    I WILL KEEP PARYING FOR YOU AND I KNOW THAT VANGENS IS IN THE HANDS OF THE LORD AND THEY WILL NOT GO FREE. THERE IS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING AND WHAT GOES AROUND COMES BACK AROUND.
    TAKE CARE AND STAY BLESSED. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND GOD WILL SURELY SHINE UPON YOU.

  9. Justice Ankamah said

    What goes around comes around. Frimpong’s false accusers would surely be punished by nature. I have know Eric from Senior secondary School through university in Ghana, he wouldn’t do such a thing. Eric, may the Lord strenghten you. GOD WOULD GIVE YOU JUSTICE.

  10. My boy rest not becos your day is coming soon for the world to the truth.

  11. frederick Mawuli Agbemafoh ( Mawuliano) said

    this whole Saviola thing came as a very big surprise to me in my capacity as someone who has known Saviola back at the University like my A,B,C,D…we played football together in Queens Hall at the KNUST, We all know including his accusers that Saviola will not hurt even a fly. He was a Civil Engineering Student in KNUST before he was poached to help the very country that is accusing him of a crime he did not commit, to improve their football. All my boy believes in is his football, something no one does better than him and he takes it so religiously. I pray God touches the conscience of all his accusers and prosecutors to revisit this case and let proper justice be done; they owe it a moral duty to do so.

  12. KING NATHANIEL (QUEENS HALL SPORT CHAIRMAN) said

    I HAVE KNOWN ERIC FOR SOME TIME AND I KNOW IT IS A PLANED THING AGAINST HIM.THIS IS BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH AND WE NEED NOT JOKE WITH.ERIC WE ARE WITH YOU IN PRAYERS AND GOD WILL SURELY SET YOU FREE. GOD BE WITH YOU.SAVIOLA

  13. Ruth Nkrumah said

    In all things give thanks to God, for he is able, i know that he is going to give Erick the justice he needs. in this country if you are from another country or race they don’t respect you. But since we are children of God we will posses our possesion in Jesus’ name, Erick is from my country and i know how it is over there, thinking that you are coming to america for a betterlife and futur, for it to turn like this, oh no. God almighty from above will prevail in this matter. we will see. i will continue to fast and pray for you erick, for i know that God is able.
    And as for the girl, God have mercy upon you, for you have no right on this God giving earth to make some ones life horible like this, how would you feel if it was your brother? or even your family member?. Erick take hear, GOD IS IN CONTROL.WE ALL LOVE YOU AND PRAY THAT YOU COME HOME SAFE AND SOUND.

  14. Jos said

    Ghanaians would not stoop so low, this should be a warning to all black athletes who are tryin to make it to stardorm in America.

    Stay away from their women, brothers, for they dont want you to bring your fame and money back home without shame

    Never choose the states over your Country when it comes to matters of naturalization (Ghana).

    Who in this world with sanity would beleive a promising Ghanaian football player would rape a white bitch(not even a lady) and a whore with piercings on her tongue for christ’s sake.

    They are always talking of justice but betrayal, tyranny and conspiracy lies like a serpent awaiting to devour its prey in their law courts. O Boy, God save Anerica.

    They really have proved that their courts are for them white folks.

    As the Ghanaian proverb goes ” The good lord fans flies away from the tailess animal ”.

    Eric i’ve learnt not a lesson but lessons from your story and i’m considering my coming to study in the states once more. We are more democratic than they say here in Ghana.

    ”Me nua” Be strong for there is always a light at the end of the tunnel brother, ”na nyame beko ama wo”.

    ITS A VERY SAD STATE AM IN AS I WRITE THIS..BUT GOD HAS A WAY OF DOING THINGS, SO I SAY BE STRONG ERIC AND GOD WHO KNOWS ALL WILL TAKE YOU OUT OF THIS AND REWARD YOU..AND PUNISH THE EVIL ONES ACCORDINGLY..STAY BLESSED

  16. Gapson Ebenezer said

    its unfortunate that this should happen to Eric.He was my teamate at KNUST in Ghana and I believe strongly that Saviola couldn’t have done that.This is pure injustice and should be condemned under no uncertain termz and the perpetraters should bow their heads in shame because they are going to be exposed.Savio,don’t give up,our spirit is with you,we will contribute our quota to set you free.

  19. edem galley said

    i was with savio in school (KNUST) actually i was his class coach and he is such a great person and i am surprised by all this. however i know that the God we serve is a living God and that He will le t the truth come to bare.
    Savio, we all miss you and are praying for you. better things are coming your way. dont give up on us and keep praying.
    (remember the story of Joseph)……….take care

  20. Faustiola said

    I was very sad when i heard of your case. i know and believe that you would never do such a thing.

    i want u to be strong and remember God is always with u. No matter what happends to you, your value in the Lord will never change, ok?

    Take and be strong for trouble times don’t last but joy will always come in the morning.

  21. It’s sad when the devil wants to destroy whoever God has blessed. But I know that the God whome we serve will not let us down. We pray that all will be well with you. and wish you all the best. May the Lord almighty be with you and give you your heart desire.

  22. Sheila said

    When we mention our God, it is taken for granted, but we Ghanaians know the Jehovah we serve and what He can do. Present all conspirers to God and you will see the reward of the wicked as the Bible states in Ps 91.

  23. lydiya Wrose said

    This really saddens my heart. I am speechless about this. So is the Ghana gov’t doing about this? They can’t let any innocent person from their place just rest in jail. This is something that should be brought up in any media awareness in Ghana so that they help with it. Really I thought for a second this was a sort of made up story till I saw these pics.
    Bless your heart savio. You will always be in my prayers.

  24. David said

    This news really bring tears to my eyes.Eric all i can do right now for you is to pray and Iknow with the lord might and strenght u be cleaned out .The word of God which is also God say the truth will always prevail.Eric know it is no easy being in jail but don’t give up hope know that there are your family,friends who are doing anything possible to get you free.and I know with God everything is going to be alright.Be strong bro be strong and hold on cuz change is on the way .”GYE NYAME” like u know only God is our judge ad he ain’t partial.one love bro see u very soon.

    “Saviola” Eric this is just to cheer u up bro
    Come on my friend,
    why are you so glum to begin?
    wake up, smell the roses,
    it aint bad, you still can mend.

    You may be disappointed,
    you have worked so hard,
    but you get such crap,
    but you gotta get urself right out of the mud,
    and well we gotta take it back to the start,
    come on, i know you still got the heart.

    Life may just not go your way,
    this is life, it’s a beach i say,
    but you gotta keep moving on,
    to show that you can get things done.

    So pull up your socks,
    and get your pens ready,
    Round 2 is coming,
    you gotta be steady.

    Don’t listen to the critics,
    they’re just there to put you down,
    there’s only one thing you should listen to,
    heres a clue,it thumps with a rhythmic sound.

    So my friend i hope
    you will no longer frown,
    i believe you will swim
    and will not drown.

    You have to be confident,
    get your head in the game,
    concentrate real hard,
    this lion you will tame.

    I hope in the near future,
    there will be laughter all around,
    you will be the prid and joy
    and the talk of the town.

    That day will come,
    you can make it happen,
    the opportunity is there,
    it’s yours for the taking.

  25. Doggie said

    God have mercy on this young man. Eric,I can say is the Joseph of this dispensation. How can someone be falsely accused for a crime that he did not commit. I know that the truth will definitely come out. We must not forget that the fact that he is an African does not means that he be denied of justice.
    Oh God save the blackman from intimidation and prejudice.

  26. Kent said

    I just finished reading his story in ESPN The Magazine. I have never felt so mad reading a story in my life. His DNA not on the victim, another suspect with more evidence against him, the accusers boyfriend none the less not even questioned or named a suspect or even person of interest, who testified to feeling “jealous” of seeing this Jane Doe with Eric. Add to that the accuser was almost lethally drunk that night, couldnt keep her story straight, detectives not letting the court know about the other bite analysiss that contradicted their story, and another one who said the victims boyfriend is more likely the cause of the teeth marks.

    I could go on and on with all of this evidence that paints him as not guilty. No evidence presented in the article would make me as a juror believe that within a shadow of a doubt this young man commited this crime. The sad part of all this is, a young woman was raped, a horrible crime commited and yet the person who did it is still walking free to do it again, while an innocent person is behind jail because of the color of his skin and jurors wanted to finish the trial up to get home for Christmas. I am sad to be an American after reading stories like this.

    this is fery sad day for justice in land of free america, Free eric frimpong

  28. mandha said

    clearly the girl tried to seduce him, and can’t accept rejection so she set him up, she and her jealous boyfriend must have collaborated in this how many black men have to suffer this kind of treatment?

  29. victor said

    I hope his appeals are successful. Maybe SB should think about their party school atmosphere.

  30. walter (Queens Hall Secretary) said

    No matter how much the truth gets suppressed, truth stands even the taller in the end. Saviola as we called him was my personal friend. We all played football together back in Queens hall, I run with him in the cross-country team for Queens hall.Even if there was hundred percent evidence against him, it will so conflict with his known character, I would have a hard time believing it…. much more, when none of the evidence connects him with the crime. I would pray for you old pal, and trust that God will vindicate you. As for those that are out to destroy you, vengeance is the Lord’s. Be strong and courageous, your salvation comes soon. lots of love to Saviola from sir wally

  31. Opuro said

    I was in KNUST with Saviola (Eric) back in Ghana and while I did not know Saviola on a personal level and never really had any encounter with him (except for the few times that he helped his team (Civil Eng.) Kick our (Geodetic Eng. ) b****). I heard of his case when I came to this country and thought “they can charge him with it but they’re not gonna find anything against him”. Surely, they charged him with rape and decided he was guilty and put him away. I am neither considering the trial nor even the evidence that were considered and those that were not. One thing is certain here that a judgement has been passed and a young man is in prison. Now whether the judge, jury, prosecution or even the defense did their job well is a matter that is better left to our conscience to decide based on our respective knowledge of the case.

    Perhaps what I find very intriguing is the fact that the Judge remarked “I’ve not seen a rape case with so much incriminating, credible and powerful evidence”. If this is really the most incriminating case he has ever presided over, then what is the sentence did he give his last “rapist” defendant? What is the average number of years he has given over his 27 years of service on rape convictions? Obviously if the judge has never given any higher sentence in a rape case, then something is amiss here.

    I am not an expert on judicial matters and I am in no way suggesting that I am or even possess the slightest inkling of judicial prowess but doesn’t it seem a bit spurious that the jury of the case be made up of nine women and three men? I mean doesn’t it sound plausible to anyone that since a woman is the complainant, the gender composition of the jury should be balanced in order to avert any possibility of a biased verdict due to a possible feeling of aversion towards the defendant?

    Lastly, I have read so many comments that purports to state that race is the main factor here. Well let me ask again, are we also saying that if Eric was white he would have been set free and Randall (the complainant’s ex) would have been convicted? There are dark histories with regards to race issues in most multi-racial cultures and yes America has its faults here too. But make no mistake this country has made giant strides in this regard which are worth commending. Those of us who are quick to pull the race card, should always note that deep down we are one people from one FATHER and while there are some who have some avarice towards other races, there are equally thousands (like Eric’s host family and supporters) who have wonderful hearts and in them they see no color.

    Finally, considering the fact that Eric never called anyone names but rather turned to God for explanation on his situation, let us learn from his experience to go to the LORD with whatever situation we find ourselves (good or bad) for HIS invaluable guidance and protection. To the Judge and prosecution and even the defense, I say, it is important and fulfilling to win a case and have it closed but it’s even more important to keep one open in search of the TRUTH. Saviola, I know it might sound easier for me to say now but man look at the bright side; God works in mysterious ways and we all pray for you. African, Black, White, Hispanic, Indian whoever, color has no essence when we see each other like how God sees us. You will come out a stronger person. Need I say more?

  32. Linda said

    When the Bible says ” Vengeance is the Lord’s, I will repay”, do people have an inch of an idea what happens when God revenges for his people?
    Hey, some people better start confessing fast, because when Jehovah revenges, we will not see the end of it.
    Eric, take heart and know that THE GREAT I AM is on your side.

  33. kWESI ASARE said

    IM REALLY SAD, WHAT A COUNTRY, WHAT A SYSTEM. ERIC REMEMBER GOD HAS NOT FORSAKEN YOU. YOUR TIME OF EXONERATION IS NIGH. GOD BLESS YOU

    May the lord be with you,amen.

  35. joseph Abedi-LARTEY said

    God said; I have drawn enmyty between snake and man. These two shall not be able to live together until a new heaven is formed. Woe to those who judge wrongly 4 their trial awaits the day of reconing.
    I created the enemy(snake) to distroy. I am the lord. My Godliness is unsearcherble. But in the days of restoration, i will answer thee like a mother responds to the cry of her baby
    Eric! When u come out, i promise u, u will play like never before. The lord is using this trial as an opportunity to catapault u into greater hights. By that time ur enermies will beg to become ur friend.
    God will speak and all ur enermies will be scarted. Amen!

    GOSH!!!….in this story one can’t help but feel empathy for the young man Eric, he believed stongly in America’s justice system and was let down by it,but i believe that at this time he needs more words of encouragement to lift up his spirts cos i assure u he is going through a trying time right now.I know he will come out of this the stonger one. Eric hold on change is coming, hold on to your love for God and at the right time you shall see yourself smiling at the storm cos it will be over soon……..

  39. Isaac Ebo Newton said

    Eric was known as Saviola by most of his team mates at Kwame Nkrumah University, Ghana. He was a great player to watch.
    During Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) games, he was a so great when it came to soccer.
    I knew his personally and this man got along well with everyone.

    We had this common greeting which goes like
    “Savio pa pa paa, and he response like “Ebo pa pa paa”

    I just want his to remember the story about Joseph and Potiphar’s wife. God is deifinitely preparing him for greatness and it has just began.
    My other prayer is that those behind this “ACT” will repent and pray for forgiveness.

    Savio pa pa paa

  40. Ama Osei said

    God will set you free Frimpong… i hope the six years come by soon so you can return to your motherland “efie ne fie” we lav you and will keep you in our prayers.

  44. Okofo Darteh Dennis (Olistar) said

    Moments such as this are hard to endure, i’m even happy u are still alive, be firm for it only appear dreams are getting shattered, but take heart from my words that all this are meant to perfect the plans of God for u. it is said that if the god of this world hard known, they wouldn’t have crusified the Lord of glory. I am certain that the Lord will certainly speak on our behalf at the appropriate time. May God remember u and work great and enviable things for u out of this mess.

  47. Adolf said

    The least of persons i would believe could do such a thing would be Saviola. The Saviola i knew back at School (KNUST) is just not near such a crime. Charlie, take heart and let the Lord take control. At HIS chosen time victory would be yours. We are with you.
