Getting along with other inmates
Time off for good behavior
Food and Commissary
JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Matthew: Most of the inmates at Kane County Jail were easy to get along with. A lot to most of them were hispanic and did not speak english. The gang members stuck to themselves. There were many fights though because there was not enough room for everybody.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Matthew: I kept to myself or talked only to very few people I felt I could get along with. Luckily I was able to get money for comissary which kept most of the other inmates in my cell block friendly towards me. I had good friends I made in the cell block that I knew would protect me if there were any problems.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Matthew: I could pick a cellmate if I wanted to. I personally did not care who my cellmate was since we only slept in the cell. Moost of my time was spent in the 'dayroom'.
