JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Mr. Guero: Yes and no it wasn't like my first rodeo. I'm a
big white boy so yes other inmates would try and
see how far they could push me. I would only get
into fights if someone was trying to disrespect
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Mr. Guero: Just basically if you show respect and no
weakness your cool. I mean the first time I went
to the joint a old timer schooled me and told me
to stick with my own race, not to gamble if I
couldn't pay what was owed right then and there.
Don't buy drugs on credit.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Mr. Guero: I've done this before by paying off the housing
clerk. Son for the most part I would be celled
up with home boys. This time I was in a dorm
