numbers. There was soft tank for people who looked
young or were picked on in general pop. Trustee

believe it was 7 floors. Each floor was dedicated to different needs
and level security. James: a pod b pod c pod d pod e pod f pod
JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks? Albert: WHEN I WAS THERE IN 2004 AND 2005 THEY HAD
EVERYONE MIXED I HEARD IT IS DIFFERENT NOW SINCE
THE RIOTS IN 2005-2006
Borata: bunch of hoodrats that belong with b PD.
Cozakos, Voorhees, Hamilton of LAPD, Dihn,
Gomez, Sindle, Sherman, Laufer, Ryburn,
Jon: I believe the separation was by severity of crime,
medical condition, homosexuality, and race. Acer: Every inmate is on a scale that goes up to 9 . Being the most
dangerous . Medium south goes up to medium 6. Eastmax
high 6 high 7 high 8 supermax high 7 8 9 Taz: Juveniles, gay guys, snitches & those in need of
protective custody, trustees. Will: They were all segregated to race, mental health, sexuality, nature of
crime, etc. The higher your security level, you'd be placed with
people of that security level. If you were gay you would be placed
with the homosexuals. James: everyone that was on the floor took medication.
Each pod itself was different. it ranged from all
types of races, ethnicities, gang affiliation,
different part of the city and that's all.
JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? Albert: NICEST???? WORST THE DIRTYNESS AND THE GUARDS
TREAT YOU MEAN LIKE T HE SCUM OF THE EARTH Borata: none what so eeeeeeeeever!!!!@!
Jon: I didn't experience different blocks, but I would
imagine the block I was in (classified gay and
needing medication) was the "nicest" block.
Meaning, it wasn't very aggressive and people kept
to themselves. Acer: Not a g*damn thing Taz: Worst was 4 man cell on tier, Best was trustee dorm
bathroom was separate from sleeping area, shower
when you want. Will: The nicest thing was meeting new people and a new environment.
The worst part is not knowing what could happen or what already
has happened that you are not aware of. Being in jail can make you
very cautious because you never know what is going on in the mind
of a neighboring inmate James: there are no nice parts of the jail. the worst
part about it would be the over crowding, the
cleanliness. the bathrooms and showers were
never cleaned properly by any jail house workers.
they left it up to the inmates to keep it clean,
and that would happen very rarely.
