Interview with Greg and Tyler

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Greg: There were a lot. Just what i seen i would say 5 for sure as a minimum.
Tyler: there were three cell blocks

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Greg: They were labeled A, B, C, D, E, etc and some had numbers.
Tyler: cell block A, D, and, C. there was also a medical wing and a cell block B that was shut down because it had major structure issues and was deemed unsafe

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Greg: The one i was in i'm guessing is the low level inmates that didn't commit major crimes. I don't know about the "badder" inmates. I know i had a blue jumpsuit on and only had 1 for 3 days! i guess the red and orange was different levels?
Tyler: the only inmates that were separated from general population were violent offenders and some mental health offenders. everyone else was mixed in with each others including sex offenders which they recently changed. they use to be segregated but they are no longer

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Greg: The nicest thing in the holding cell was the showers had curtains. The worst part about the holding cell was there was only 1 small tv, only one 5 gallon cooler that had kool-aid in it, after that it was sink water. And in the general population there was nothing nice and bad it was VERY crowded and showers were broken and trash was everywhere.
Tyler: Lowndes county jail recently added on to the jail and A block is considered the worst because it was so old. no A/C and no Heat, it stinks really bad and the showers are disgusting but D and C are not bad at all they have AC/ Heat and single showers to every cell
