JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Ryan: I'm a big guy, played some football so I wasn't
someone who looked like you should mess with. I
do remember having an issue with a guy who wanted
my to switch bunks but I told him I'm staying in
the bunk they assigned me to. He kinda stared me
down and I didn't back off so he just left me
alone after that.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Ryan: There will be times when somebody might try to
test you you, maybe push you out of line to see
what you're made off. You've got to stand your
ground. Also don't size somebody up. Ignore them
or look away. Don't show any weakness.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Ryan: If you wanted to you could move bunks to be next
to a buddy but it depends on the Walking Boss to
let them know you were switching. They just
needed to count heads at the end of the day.
