Where would it go?
It would go no where. It would merely add the mass of the black hole.

They don't come out of the hole, but rather, as Wikipedia puts it, are hypothesized to be caused by the "twisting of magnetic fields in the accretion disk collimating the outflow along the rotation axis of the central object".
