Jenna: you are kidding right ? its jail - there is nothing - not one thing nice about it
Diane: The nicest part was that I was in the mistamener part, all the felony blocks seem to have more problems fights etc.
Norman: community was the best block the inmates were not convicted of violent crimes or anything like that so it was a much calmer atmosphere than the other blocks the psych block was the worst due to the inmates having mental conditions and lack of medications or something because they seem to have the most problems
Andrea: i had a corner cell - so it was set more away from the other cells or stairs, which made it quieter and easier to keep clean that i guess was the best part - the worst was being quarantined cause they had a tb person in the same wing & watching some woman have a miscarriage
