Leisure Time

Interview with Randy, Will and Cynthia

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Randy: In GP hell no. We were on rack down the whole time. It was a rolling rackdown day whatever that is. My cellee and I just talked. He was making "toilet wine" aka hooch so I guess he was pretty entertained. In WR u control the tv and there's lots of books and magazines to read. There's also puzzles and tables for them and lots of space to exercise. I played spades and gambled.
Will: None.
Cynthia: nothing really.there was a tv in the dayroom and a few books we could choose from to read but that was it.once a week (maybe) they would let us go outside for rec.Which is a small square bricked in area outside that is open on the top with a chain link fence over it.its basically a concrete box that you can just get some fresh air in.they would give us a volley ball sometimes to play with.we'd be out for an hour or less

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Randy: In WR yes whenever u want. They even get the post and USA today daily. In GP I hear it depends in the block.
Will: The television was unable to be changed as I recall, but I was uninterested in it anyway so I am not sure. There was plenty of table space for card games but if you did not know people you were unlikely to be asked to join a game.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Randy: Cardio was kinda hard to do.
Will: Yes.
Cynthia: no I personally didn't.but a lot of other people do.just because there's nothing you can do to work out really besides walking back and forth in the dayroom (which is what some of the girls did for exercise).

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Randy: Never. U only go outside if ur in work release and if so u get 12 hours/6 days/wk if ur lawyer is good.
Will: I was never allowed to go outside.
Cynthia: once a week (maybe) they would let us go outside for rec.Which is a small square bricked in area outside that is open on the top with a chain link fence over it.its basically a concrete box that you can just get some fresh air in.they would give us a volley ball sometimes to play with.we'd be out for an hour or less

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Randy: Supposedly but I hear it almost never happens.
Will: They did offer church services in the form of a pastor entering the unit while the majority of inmates who chose not to attend remained locked in their cells.
Cynthia: yes.they had volunteers that would come on sunday and preach from 1pm-2pm.they came into the dayroom and we would sit at the tables and listen to them.although the last 2 weeks I was there no one came so we were just locked in out cells for that time.
