    These posting illustrate that people who nothing about Criminal Justice should not be allowed to spew drivel about police power trips and such. This seems unfair to a lot of people because they do not understand how the system works. This is actually a brilliant strategy to keep a criminal behind bars.

    that's what you call a detainer!!! They Know what they were doing. Its just to hold you until your release date.

    He had the opportunity to confess and be tried for those crimes at the same time as his other trial, but he held it a secret. That allows the police to do the work on their time, not on his. 28 felony counts...keeping him behind bars as long as possible is an excellent service to the citizens that work hard and live honest lives. What's not fair? Letting a thief go free in siciety...that is not fair.

    I think it's Great ! The Thief got what he deserves. Boo Hoo. He should have thought of the consequences before he stole a hard working persons credit card. I can't stand a Common Thief.

    I have to say that it is a sorry excuse that they could not find him to serve papers on him. There is enough technology available to the average citizen to allow them to track an inmate (just ask any inmate's wife, they know exactly where their husband is) so there is no excuse for law enforcement not to be able to find him. They knew where he was at, they just knew that he wasn't going anywhere so they put it off to the last minute. I agree if you do the crime, do the time, but atleast give someone a chance to get all of their stuff taken care of and get it over with. We need some real changes in our system here. There are decent people in prison, they made mistakes and they are paying for them. We should be more worried about the ones who make these mistakes and get off with a slap on the wrist or do not get caught at all.

    i dont think they shall arrested this man for this because they new were he was at the whole time. it a shame the laws can do this and get away with it.they cant said they didnt know were this man was at.the laws can do whatever they want too.they can click on the prison log and put his name in it would tell them were he is at.why did they wait till he was getting out of prison before they sever the paper on him.they could took him back to court before now.yall got to look why did they wait so long.

    To Mr. Shackelford, I don't have an OPUS number. I have worked in the system for almost 30 years though. I agree with all of you, do the crime, do the time. However, as Citizen in Halifax County stated, we do need to improve the system in order to make certain, people are served warrants in a timely manner. It is perfectly logical these warrants were not served because the subject could not be located. It just frustrates me to see that with the advent of modern technology, these people still slip through the cracks.

    Ain't that a kick in the pants?! Orange pants.

    Does it really matter? He still has to serve time either way for his crimes. If I break into one house and get 3 months in prison, why should someone breaking into 15 houses get 3 months as well? If he had stole your credit cards and used them, I bet you would be singing a different tune.
