JM: How many different blocks were there? Clara: im not sure. it was huge in there!!! that was the
first time i had ever been there. Carlos: The pod I was in had 16 rooms. 4 single cells for
lockdown and the rest are 2 man cells. There are 4
pods per units and total 12 units. Oscar: A lot. I would say at least 30 to 60 in most of
the jails. Broward and Orange have like 6
different jails. Lori: Six total.
JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they? Clara: i dont know. Carlos: They would go by Unit 6, Pod A, Pod B, Pod C and
so on. Oscar: yes. but I can't remember them all. all I
remember is north borward, main, paul ryan,
contene for broward, genis, horizons, phoenix,
main, and some others for orange. the other jails
didn't. Lori: They were labeled by numbers 1-6. Each cell block
was then divided into lettered pods.
JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks? Clara: the kept them seperated by how serious the crimes
were and how they acted in jail. Carlos: Violent and sexual offenders were kept separate.
They would put them in their own pods. Oscar: based on charges. violent non-violent. felony or
misdemeanor I can not answer this any further as
I don't know the procedures for this out come as
I had always been in custody and am not sure what
you want to know else. Lori: Violent and sentenced inmates were housed in their
own cell block. Female inmates also had their own
JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? Clara: it was cold and they didnt offer any help as far as
me having a toothache. had to wait til sarasota
county to receive help for my tooth. Carlos: Going outside was the nicest. The worst was
watching people get the crap beat out if they find
out they in there for and they didn't like that. I
seen two guys die in there. Oscar: nothing really. all were disgustingly dirty. I
can not answer this any further as I don't know
the procedures for this out come as I had always
been in custody and am not sure what you want to
know else. There is nothing nice about jail it is
all bad especially the guards. Lori: Nothing nice about them whatsoever. They all had a
strong urine odor and were freezing cold.
