Interview with Darcy

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Darcy: I did not, I kept to myself and just did my time. Other inmates did have problems with each other and it was usually over drugs that were brought into the jail.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Darcy: Not involve yourself with the politics and drugs that go through there. The only problems people had were not minding there own business and bad drug deals. Not paying for the drugs they chose to take while in jail. Most of the time the women got along well. The men however are more political and fights happened all the time

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Darcy: No, I was in a tank that had 3 cells, each cell had 8 beds and almost daily were new inmates brought into our housing area. The mens side is a bit more political and the guards house them according to race and affiliation.
