Interview with Kelsey

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Kelsey: I had many conflicts with many of the inmates. Any time there are people who are all very different, trying to live together in a very small confined space there is going to be conflict. But for the most part I got along pretty well with everyone. I never once got in a physical fight the whole time I was there.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Kelsey: Mostly I just stayed in my cell and read books. That way I wasnt involved in all the "drama"

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Kelsey: Yes, you could choose your cellmate if you knew one, but you would first have to ask the supervising guard and it would have to be okayed before you could switch your cell to something other than what was assigned to you. I chose a friend of mine as a cellmate and it turned out to be a big mistake. We had problems respecting each others space and belongings.
