Interview with Rhett and Stewart

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Rhett: No not really. It seemed like it was harder to get along with the staff because of their attitude. They didn't seem to care too much about if you wanted food or phone calls.
Stewart: No, most of they people in my pod were very friendly folks who just wanted to get out of there just as bad as I did. No problems with the inmates.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Rhett: First time I was in there were a couple of Latinos who also got arrested and they got to arguing over whose fault it was for getting arrested. They went at it with other and the guards rushed in an broke it up. I was just off to the side minding my own business when this went down.
Stewart: Really just make sure that you minded your own business and stay out of other peoples disputes and try to keep a low level. Considering they handed out ball point pens to anyone who went to Sunday services I kept that pen on me at all times just in case someone felt like hurting me I could defend myself.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Rhett: There was nothing like that. I was put in the the holding cell with about 20 other guys and that was it and that was where I stayed.
Stewart: No I had no say so in what cell I was placed in. They never switched up the cells with me and my cellmate and we got alone pretty decent.
