Interview with Joey, Bob, Anne, Beth, Gary, Cheev, JJ, Denise, Brett, Andrew and Bethany
JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail? Joey: Be prepared to be dragged through the jail
system. Bob: Stay cool, exercise, read whatever books you can
get your hands on; and just look forward to the
next meal until you can get out. Just looking
forward to the next meal seems to make time go
better than waiting for days/weeks/months to be
over. Anne: Yes, please let them know that jail is a horrible place and please
learn from their mistake and never go to jail again. Beth: visit them as often as you can to show that you
are there for them. Gary: If bail is possible, do it as soon as possible.
Jail life gets easier but it
is in no way fun. Its demoralizing, dangerous and
unhealthy. Beth: help thm please its inhumane!! Cheev: stay in contact with your people because those
police are beatin people up & are just not right JJ: don't be from out of state Denise: Write often. Take their phone calls as much as
possible, those are the most precious moments.
Visit as much as you possibly can. Send as much
money as you can afford, or they will starve. If
they have trouble getting medical attention call &
RAISE HELL as often as possible until they are seen. Brett: Let them know that they should be prepared to sit
for a while, and to have some money, because jail
cost money, and its hard to fight your case out of
jail. Andrew: dont make too many friends when peole get
confortable with ypu they feel like they can get
away with doing stupid shit and playing around too
much which can be a problem Bethany: just go in there stay too yourself do what the
workers tell u too do stay away from fights and
get sum sleep and rest pick up a book and read..
JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them? Joey: No place like home. Stay away from jail Bob: Don't break the law. Anne: Stay out of jail. Beth: just keep hope alive Gary: Keep your head down, stay safe and good luck. Cheev: sue 4 any wrong doing by the dekalb jail dont let
them get away with nothin JJ: take god in with you because it's hell in dekalb
jail Denise: Stay out of drama. Don't bother arguing over TV.
Do not give any commissary away, or the vultures
will descend. Trust no one. Don't drink the
kool-aid. Don't trust the officers, they are often
worse than the inmates. Brett: My advice to them is to put some money on your
books, and on your phone. Also, be prepared to
sit for a while, because their court system is
backed-up. Andrew: stay to your self no get too friendly and moxt of
everything if dont know god take that time to get
close to him because the lord has the last say so
not the judge!!!!!! Bethany: too keep there head up u want be in jail for
