Interview with Albert, Borata, Keith, Jon, Innocent17, Taz, Will and James
JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications? Albert: NO. Borata: not even a sanitary pad, go figure ass hole! Keith: Yes. Jon: They did not provide me with my medication, yet I
wasn't there for that long. Many inmates did
receive their medication. Innocent17: NO. And that was a sore point with me. I only got
my meds TWICE while I was there. I constantly felt
like I was going to seize because lack of my meds.
I finally made a big stink about it and almost got
beat up by the guards because of it. And I STILL
had to wait until the next day. Taz: N/a Will: Everyone who needed medications were given to them at a
designated time James: always is a strong word you had access to
medications if you have a prescription and
receive them during pill call.
JM: How did you get your medications? Albert: YOU WOULD WAKE UP EARLY AND GO TO SICK CALL AND
THEY WOULD TELL YOU TO DRINK A LOT OF WATER AND
GIVE YOU 2 TYLENOLS. Borata: na Keith: They have med calls 4 times a day. Jon: After a long process of medical evaluation,
psychiatric evaluation, interviews, etc. Twice a
day the guards would call your name and number and
you came out of your cell and they gave you
medication. Taz: n/a Will: I personally didn't take any medications but in order to have
received them you needed to get evaluated by a nurse first James: I got my medications from the nurse that comes at
the designated times for pill call. she came 4
times a day.
JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this? Albert: ??? Keith: Isolation time, in the hole. Jon: I don't know. Taz: n/a Will: I used to see people crush up medications and then snort them. A
corrections officer caught an inmate, and he was transferred to a
different dorm James: depends on which police catch you selling or
using drugs. you could get beat by the police or
placed in solitary confinement.
