The jail's automatic answering system? How does that work?

Well, not well of course! Press one for english, try to pronounce the purps name, and pick the name from a six-pack of similars. If that doesn't work, press 2 for what some call english and go through it again or wait until tomorrow when he will be back in again..

The guy that answers the phone just says "BEEP" at the end.

Now for all of you Trayvon supporters, suppose 21 year old VR Ross turned on Mr Snidder and started bashing his head into the ground. And suppose Ross was shot by Mr Snidder in self-defense. And Ross's parents said their innocent child was just walking home. Would this result into another protest by ASU students about injustice? Just another point of view.

It would completely depend on Mr. Snidders color of course.

Suppose that Mr. Snidder shot Mr. Ross in the back after he saw him attempting to break into those vehicles. He then stood over the wounded man and fired a shot execution style into Ross' head. I suppose he would have been viewed by some as just as much of a hero. One less thug on the street, right?

How do we know that this is what Trayvon did. If things added up in the case their wouldn't be so much hoopla. But being in southwest Georgia of course, black means criminal for most of you. This is why I tell people wanna know about minds in Albany, Read the comments provided by the Herald readers. You seem to lump all people of one color into the same category. Shameful and these are two different types of incidents, Trayvon was only walking home from the store talking to his girlfriend, not trying to B&E an automobile.

sowe.. unless you were there as an eye witness, your ridiculous comments are just as predjudiced as your accusations. You are ony using what you have read and heard about. If you were not there, you are prejudging and assuming the events instead of waiting for the FACTS to come out in a trial.

I have only challenged those who prejudged Zimmerman to THINK about their reactions if the results had been different in this case. "IF" Ross had been shot because he had tried to attack Snidder, would the reactions have been different? Just what if Trayvon had not tried to fight Zimmerman, he may still be alive.

The FACTS are we do not know exactly what happened because none of us were there, yet there are those who have already made up their minds that Zimmerman should not have defended himself. It is you who should be ashamed. So don't accuse me of lumping any race against another as you have just done.

How do we know Trayvon was only walking home from the store talking to his girlfriend? How did that wound get on the back of Zimmerman's head? We don't know and no one else knows because none of us was there. Only Zimmereman knows what REALLY happened.

Obviously Mr. Snidder did the proper thing and just help the suspect at bay instead of shooting him.

This is entirely different. What did criminal activity did Trayvon's murderer observe him committing? NOTHING. In his case Mr. Snidder saw the perpetrator commit the criminal acts. Please stop and think before putting your biases out there for all to see. Try again, 'cause your ignorant comment was an epic FAIL!!!!!!!!!

'THEY'RE BACK" Albany's finest are at it again comparing apple to oranges. The cases are nothing alike, get yours details together before you look other than smart.

And of course the shallow-minded doubters are back!! No FACTS to back up your claim of being nothing alike. The difference is that noone was injured in this article. They both involved someone watching their neighborhood, saw someone suspicious, and calling the police. One involved the "watcher" being attacked (proven by the more recent photos of a head injury), and this one involved the law breaker being held at gun point until the police arrived. I am just saying these lawless events could have resulted in someone being shot if the law breaker attacked the one holding him at gun point. It just depends on your point of view, or lack of objective thinking to see only what you want to see or believe.

spookj6 is a racist idiot that supports thugs and robbers and ganglife, take everything he/she/it says with a grain of salt.

Greg Snidder you probably saved Virgil Ross' life. Thank you! If Ross had not been apprehended someone with lesser control might have shot him. You are of the same ilk as the veteran in Athens, Ga who recently frightened a burglar away with his gun rather than shoot. People in Merry Acres have been robbed and shot at so much the posse's attitude here is shoot first and read 'em their rights later. Good going Greg Snidder you are the hero today.

No shots fired - no one murdered. Well done, Mr. Snidder!

I would like to know the definition of racist. If you are white, then you are racist if you make a negative comment against a black person, if you are black, then you cannot be a racist. Being black it is okay to use the N word anytime you want and say anything you want about a honkey without white folks saying a word. Do I understand the meaning?

It is just amazing to see the Thug lovers here. You valve their lives more than they valve themselves. THANK YOU Mr. Snidder for taking a stand against another low life.
