JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Deidre: Sometimes it was difficult. The were people who
were bullies, and there were people who roomed
with the trustee, and if you did not do what
they said or pissed them off, they told the
trustee, who would jump on you verbally and
possibly physically. Once Amanda Kimbrough said
she had the blessing of the Jailor Amanda to
kick someone's ass and the jailor Amanda came
back there while Amanda Kimbrough was
threatening someone and then she just left.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Deidre: You would have to keep your mouth shut
sometimes, there was a huge black inmate that
everyone left alone, because they were scared of
her. So, sometimes, you was just keep your mouth
shut, and let the crazy person say bad shit to
you or the bully have their way as long as they
were not being physical.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Deidre: I didn't, but some others did. Those who kiss
the most ass, get things more to their liking.
Some people were changed often, while others
were not. If an intoxicated person came in,
someone on a bottom bunk was moved to a top to
allow for that person to have bottom.
