Interview with Juan, Bill and Brian

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Juan: I got along fine withe the other inmates. It was crowed in there, the holding cell just had a bench and two metal chairs, We passed the time by talking about what charges we were facing/cops/women etc. One dude just said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, so we just left him be and didn't ask him any more questions.
Bill: I really didn't care about getting along with an end with any and made for anyone the only thing I was worried about was getting along with myself I don't worry about other people
Brian: no. i am laid back and i know everyone i had a couple incidents bout no drama im well known in md so everyone was dissapointed i was in jail

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Juan: Don't provoke anyone and you won't have a problem, there are alot of guards walking around in the presentencing area at least and cameras in all the cells so no one tried anything.
Bill: well I never had a fight in the jail I had a fight at the pre release center with the one individual over some racial issues and I was very very upset I could not hold myself and wind up fighting I ended up getting kicked out of the release program and sent back to jail
