JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time? Lance: Books, TV, cards. They used to have boardgames
but they took that out while I was there. Not
one cold drink.
JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details. Lance: You can buy cards on commissary. I only went to
the library once the whole time I was there so
yes, its hard to get books. But inmates just
pass the books around.
JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail? Lance: All you do is sit in a room all day and eat
bread with every meal. You go to rec once a
week for an hour, in a concrete block room
outside. One basketball and hoop for 150
JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise? Lance: Once a week for an hour at a time. If it was hot
or cold or looked like it was going to rain they
made up every excuse in the book of why they
couldn't do rec.
JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held? Lance: Catholic and Christian church. They have it on
Sunday and Catholic on Saturday.
