Interview with Tom and Jackie

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Tom: 10 I do believe
Jackie: I think in the old jail there were either 2 or 4.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Tom: No
Jackie: Not sure.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Tom: they were classified
Jackie: All I can tell you is that in my unit, they ranged from prostitution to drugs.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Tom: The worst thing is they have a Lt. who runs the jail that is prejudice toward all white people and every guard will tell you the same
Jackie: The worst part about the block I was in, was that is was very dirty. I was there two weeks before getting a change of clothes. All the women had to wash their clothes in the toilets or the shower.
