Interview with Andres

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Andres: Yes. I found it incredibly difficult to get along with other inmates due to my Veteran of Foreign Wars status. There were Muslim gangbangers in the same block as me who were well established in the community.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Andres: I had to lay low, keep my mouth shut. Don't play in any games or attempt to change the channel. Stay in view of the cameras. Don't make deals with anyone. Shower in the incredibly early morning before lights in order to avoid stepping on other peoples toes and always keep an eye on your box.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Andres: No, I did not get to choose a cellmate. The bunks were assigned, and I spent most of my time on 'The Floor,' which everything outside of the cells. They have these portable bunks called boats that people sleep on.
