Interview with Charles and Lynne

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Charles: Well when I got busted, they also went after the guy who was suspected of selling me the drug. One of his friends yelled out that I had "snitched" which they know I hadn't. We both were caught off guard and found out later they had us on video tape. I was scared, because once you are called a snitch, it's a bad sistuation.
Lynne: No I didn't find it difficult to get along with other inmates because we were All locked up I stayed to myself minding my business only worried about me and no one else

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Charles: I just stayed quiet and to myself. That didn't always work. So I played up my personality a bit. I am a bit of a comedian. But I am a small thin guy and not alot of street smarts in the way of fighting and so on. But I was old enough to navigate. And my age may have help me too.
Lynne: I really didn't have anything to avoid I did what I was told to do worried about me doing this time and coming on out this hell hole so I didn't have anything to avoid I said hi and bye and kept on going about my I had no issues

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Charles: I was not able to choose my roommate, at least I was never told that. Also I did not anyone, so it would not have mattered. New mates came it rather regular.
Lynne: No you are not able to choose your cellmate they put you wherever there is enough space.Whoever comes to jail and need a bed they put you were ever you can fit. my cell mates changed periodically
