JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Rhett: No not really. It seemed like it was harder to
get along with the staff because of their
attitude. They didn't seem to care too much about
if you wanted food or phone calls. Stewart: No, most of they people in my pod were very
friendly folks who just wanted to get out of there
just as bad as I did. No problems with the inmates.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Rhett: First time I was in there were a couple of
Latinos who also got arrested and they got to
arguing over whose fault it was for getting
arrested. They went at it with other and the
guards rushed in an broke it up. I was just off
to the side minding my own business when this
went down. Stewart: Really just make sure that you minded your own
business and stay out of other peoples disputes
and try to keep a low level. Considering they
handed out ball point pens to anyone who went to
Sunday services I kept that pen on me at all times
just in case someone felt like hurting me I could
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Rhett: There was nothing like that. I was put in the the
holding cell with about 20 other guys and that
was it and that was where I stayed. Stewart: No I had no say so in what cell I was placed in.
They never switched up the cells with me and my
cellmate and we got alone pretty decent.
