Leisure Time

Interview with Rob

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Rob: In the blocks there was a common area with a tv and one channel. In the annex there was a gameroom and tv room. The inmates were responsible for purchasing games or activities to keep busy but some would be nice enough to let you borrow/lend you a game they had bought.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Rob: In the blocks things were a lot more intense. I dint feel as welcome to take part in any card or board games due to being the only white male in the buch. In the annex everyone sleeps in the day and up at night. A game/cards are almost always available but you got to ask for them by other inmates.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Rob: I wasn't motivated to workout in jail. I did wrong and I was busy thinking the whole time I was there.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Rob: I did not go outside once. I barely got to see daylight. Excersize is done by pushups, situps, walking or any other workouts you can hear from other inmates

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Rob: They did provide church every sunday morning but unfortunately I missed the call on my last sunday after I was told of the service.
