The frame up, arrest, and incarceration of Eric Anthony Oliver, a young Black Man, in Bronson, Florida is yet another example of a wrongful conviction in the makings. The circumstances of this young man's arrest are outrageous. As you are probably aware Eric was arrested on June 12, 2012 while defending his family and friends from a white mob the encroached on he and his mother's home. This is Trayvon Martin all over again, except the victim survived this time. This mob attacked a 16-year-old young man but nobody from the mob has been arrested. If there was ever a stand your ground case this is it.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: State Attorney William Cervone.
Dismiss and Expunge All charges against Eric Antony Oliver.
I am aware of the frame up, arrest, and incarceration of Eric Anthony Oliver, a young Black Man, in Bronson, Florida. The circumstances of this young man's arrest are outrageously egregious.
Eric was arrested on June 12, 2012 while defending his family and friends from a white mob that encroached upon the home shared with his mother. Eric was immediately arrested - unlike George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case. The victim, a 16 year old male, survived the mob beatings; however, no one from the mob was arrested. Eric should be granted immunity from prosecution under Florida's Stand Your Ground Law. We, the undersigned are requesting that all charges against Eric Anthony Oliver are dismissed and expunged.
