Interview with Eric

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Eric: It is always difficult to get along with other inmates. As much as you try there will always be someone who will try to start problems or just be so emotionally unbalanced that they will act out for no reason at all. You have to just deal with it.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Eric: The kinds of things I do to avoid fights with other inmates is pretty much keeping to myself. I stay away from the tv. I don't gamble with cards or on games. And I don't trade or buy things. No matter how clear things are when you say them or do them at first, someone will always say they weren't that way later and it will be a problem.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Eric: The cell I was in was a very large un-sentenced inmate cell. Once you are sentenced you go to a different cell with sentence inmates. The jail is pretty small so you don't move much unless you cause problems and need to be moved.
