JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time? Leo: Nothing. One small 19 inch tv bolted way up
high so it was hard to watch. We had chess
boards and book availability. The rec are was
nothing. 10 x 20 maybe for 70 inmates to
share. You could never see outside or the sun.
It was a dungeon basically.
JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details. Leo: There was no entertainment really so everybody
shared what was available. Inmates exercised
alot so there was room for everyone to find
there corners to do pushups and sit ups. The
guards frowned on us exercising and always tried
to find reasone to make us stop. Some
competition over who was strongest
JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail? Leo: I did the best I could because its what my life
was about before I went to jail. I would lift
water for weight, sand, or dirt.
JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise? Leo: We never got to go outside or even see the
outside. I would do push ups, sit ups, squats,
lift water bags, or do pull ups off stairs
JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held? Leo: They did offer church service that we could
attend weekly. It was definately the highlight
of many of our weeks.
