Interview with Charles and Lynne

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Charles: I guess there was about 10- 15 different areas, blocks.
Lynne: There were about twenty blocks

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Charles: Can't remember. The names Jacobs and Roberts come to mind.
Lynne: They were named after letters of the alphabet and the other stuff just names

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Charles: Gangs, younger from older, murderers, petty criminals appeared to be seperated from each other. Also if someone was a child molester or something of that nature, they were normally seperate. I think there was even an ex-police officer and he was not with mainstream inmates.
Lynne: All types of inmates were on the blocks you had people serving life a section just for minors charged as adults then y I u had the solitary confinement block the mental disabled Inmates

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Charles: Nothing nice I can remember. I hated every aspect of prison or that lifestyle. I just woke up every day looking forward to getting out. How people can go back time after time is a mystery to me. I guess if I had to choose the worst parts was where the gang members hung out or were stationed.
Lynne: There was nothing nice about the blocks at all the jail is the worst place any body can ever be.Its very dirty they have bugs and hot water the floors are filthy the showers are horrible the cells are like storage containers the mess hall is even worst it's a mess
