Inmates

Interview with Hakstiff and Rebecca

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Hakstiff: I DIDN'T FIND IT HARD B/C NOBODY MESSED W/ ME THERE WERE A FEW PPL THAT I KNEW RIGHT OFF THAT I DIDN'T LIKE SO I STAYED AWAY FROM THEM
Rebecca: I stayed to myself the entire time. I had people try to talk to me, but they lived very much different lives than I did. They were drug addicts, STD infested, and thieves.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Hakstiff: STAYED IN MY CELL OR ONMY BUNK
Rebecca: People would fight for something as small as a pencil. The smallest things aren't just given to you in there so it was every man for themselves. A group of girls almost got physical over a pencil that barely even had a point. I gave them my pencil because it was ridiculous.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Hakstiff: NO ABSOLUTELY NOT IF YOU ASKED FOR A CELLMATE IT LOOKED AS IF U WERE IN A RELATIONSHIP W/ THEM
Rebecca: I did not choose my cellmates. I saw people change beds, but I did not mind the people I shared my cell with. They were actually not as wild as the rest of the girls in there. They were close in age to me.
