Man refuses to Leave Jail and Is Arrested Once Again

For some inmates, the day they get out of prison is the best day of their life.  For others, the day can be sad and depressing, especially if they have no resources and nothing to come home to.  We don’t know what happened to Rodney Dwayne Valentine, but we do know that he was only out for a few minutes before being arrested again at the Rockingham County Jail in North Carolina this weekend.

Police are saying that Valentine refused to leave the prison, and he was arrested and sent back to his cell.  Valentine refused to leave because he wanted a ride to a local motel.  When officers would not give him a ride, he got upset and stayed on the premises without their permission.   That led to him being incarcerated once again.  Valentine was originally sent to jail on May 22 after being accused of damaging property.

Valentine’s new charge is second-degree trespassing, and he’s being held on $500 bond.  His appearance in court is scheduled for August 9, but we somehow believe that he’s probably coming back to jail at some point in the future.  Let’s hope we’re wrong.

    This world once again is crazy. Of course people don’t look forward into getting out. Most of them have no place to go and can’t get a job because of “have you ever been convicted of a felony” and no jobs available at all., Most of them have burned their bridges with family which don’t won’t parole/probation officers running in and out of the house. He want to stay let him stay!!!!

    Why leave jail when everything is absolutely free, where else can you get all these freebies?

      Right, because prison is such an ideal place. Who doesn’t want to go? Who doesn’t want to stay?*rolls eyes* The guy asked for a ride to a motel. It doesn’t say he asked for the money. And maybe it was all a ruse to end back up in prison because he’s one of those people so mentally effected by the experience that he views it as a healthy alternative to leaving for the outside world where he may not have anyone or any place to go to. In that regard he needs a psych hospital, not prison because anyone who’d rather stay on that plantation as opposed to the street (which is where I would’ve chose to sleep over prison anyday) has serious psychological issues.

    They could have at least give him a ride to the motel. I really don’t blame him for not leaving because if they can pick him up from where they arrested him in the first place, they could have taken him to the motel in the second place. The police could have done that much for him. And they won’t see any damn bail money.

    Poor thing. His Momma must be dead and his father…well, that’s anyone’s guess. If he had motel money, he could’ve walked/hitched. Poor thing.

    Okay, my people, there is a new idea to write for a grant for assistance for people released from jail/ prison needing a push or immediate support.

    Unemployment (Black) is at an all time high?

    Right now some caucasion brothers created the designated driver program for people too intoxicated to drive home and they are getting paid!
