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.
