Armando: well the best thing about the block I was at that there was hot water and it wasent that cold in there the worest about it it stiked realy funny and the bathroom stalles where ull of fruit flies every where and idk like almost every gut in there was nasty ass heck
Drew: The nicest thing about the Genesis block is that it is open pod which means you have more freedom to move around as you please as oppose to being stuck in a cell like in Orientation. The worst part about any block is being stuck in a cell, especially with a harden criminal. Having a good cell mate or mates is very important. That makes a big difference.
Devin: The main was 1 cell block not seperate rooms.All the inmates are in one room with bunk beds.That was the worst part of the jail because inmates can get to you while your sleeping.Horizons was nice because the had 3 man rooms and you had piece at night while sleeping.
Sean: there is nothing nice about being in jail except for the day you are released when you walk out the doors and the worst part is your first 7 days in
