JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Kevin: Well, I did have an incident. Some of those
people can be pretty disrepectful. I got into it
once with a guy who was being loud and I was
trying to take a nap. One low is the same as the
other. They have cliques and gangs over there and
if you don't belong to one of them if you get in
trouble then you don't have anyone to mediate on
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Kevin: I guess it helps to belong to a clique. You could
stay on your own but then you don't have anybody
to help out
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Kevin: They assign you a certain cell but after a while
if you want to transfer or you get into trouble
with your bunkmate then they might move you out.
That happened with me when I was having some
trouble with a fellah over there. They just
switched us up.
