Interview with Deidre

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.
