JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Tom: Not really. It is a max county jail, you could be in there for something very minor or with people waiting to serve life prison sentences. I really didn't have any issues with anyone.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Tom: It was kind of race segregated. I couldn't hang out with the African Americans at their table. And once you have a spot you at a table you stay there. You don't run your mouth or tell war stories that might get you challenged by somebody
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Tom: In the pod I was in we all had single cells.
