JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Mizzell: Sometimes it was being in the county there was little space for a lot of women we used to have to sleep on the floor. In prison mind your own business and no drama or bulldagging u will be OK. A lot of the old timers there are better but a lot of the woman get along pretty good I am still friends now with dome of them
Neil: No I did not. I kept to myself and did not confront anyone while in jail. Others did try to approach me, but I just rested in my cell. My cell mates were never dificult with me.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Mizzell: Stay out of the girlfriend drama never borrow what u can't pay back and always show respect especially to those who been there a while u mite learn something
Neil: Stay to myself. I just stayed in my cell and kept to myself and my cell mates. I did not interact with other inmates outside my cell nor did I ask for anything or take anything. Number 1 rule....do not take anything from any other inmate...this is never a good idea.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Mizzell: In county if I didn't get along with somebody I could get the moved but in prison u live in dorm like one big room with a hundred women
Neil: No I did not get to choose my cell mates. I did not know anyone there in the jail. Rarely did I get a new cell mate while I was in the jail.
