Interview with Clinton and Tyrone

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Clinton: 700 inmates, segregated on 5 floors. Each floor has 6 modules with 30 guys each
Tyrone: I don't know how many there are.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Clinton: Max at the top, kitchen and booking and release on the bottom.
Tyrone: I was in maximum security, 4th floor. There were 6 pods in maximum security. Medium security also has 6 pods but I'm not sure about max.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Clinton: Security level increases the higher up you go in the jail.
Tyrone: Top floor houses the max security and security gets lower the further down you go on the floors.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Clinton: The inmate worker (IW) mod where I was had two separate showers with curtains, and all the others didn't. The mattresses are thicker. If you work in the kitchen, you can get pb to replace the gross lunchmeat.
Tyrone: I don't think any of them were nicer. They had different colors in different pods, like the desks and doors were painted different colors. Some of the jail has been remodeled but other parts haven't.
