JM: How many different blocks were there? Henry: There were 4 different "pod-blocks" that each
had 4 to 5 pods and 4 or more dorms. Bob: I think there are 4 - I am not quite sure but I
think there is A, B, C, D. I was in D
(Or "Delta"). Cory: I am not sure how many different blocks there were.
JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they? Henry: Each pod block had a letter and each pod had a
number followed by the dorm number. For example,
Pod A-2, Dorm 2. Bob: Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta. Cory: i do not know the names of the cell blocks.
JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks? Henry: Inmates as far as I could tell weren't separated
in any particular order. It wasn't uncommon to
have a child predator to be bunked with an
inmate of a lesser charge such as a D.U.I. . Bob: I believe Alpha and Bravo were for pre-sentenced
inmates and Charlie / Delta were for inmates that
were sentenced or were awaiting trial on serious
felonies. Cory: Violent offenders werehoused together in one block.
non violent crimes were in another. it all depended
on really whether or not the person can be
considered violent or not. I had violent arrest so I
was in the tougher block.
JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? Henry: All of the blocks were terribly filthy. Rusty,
moldy, clogged air-vents; Chipped concrete
steps; dirty water pipes and moldy showers were
a normality everywhere throughout the jail,
except for the newly built "D-Pod". Bob: I liked that I was in the drug/alcohol program.
Everyone was very respectful of each other and
very supportive. I liked that we were given an
opportunity to work on our additive behaviors and
make something productive out of our stays there. Cory: The nicest part about the blocks was that non
violent people did not have to be worried too much,
the worst part was that the violent offender had to
get together for the one hour of no lock down for
phone calls and food and some people would still
