Interview with Danny

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Danny: No I did not find it difficult to get along with other inmates. I am generally "Easy-going" and find it a natural part of my personality to get along with everyone. Although there were people that I didnt care for, I still showed them respect and received respect in return.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Danny: Getting along with the other inmates is easy - provided you follow whatever "prison politics" are in place in any given cell or cell block. For the most part all you have to do is keep good hygiene and keep your area clean, as well as socialize every now and then by playing cards or dice, and show a little respect. These are inherent behaviors and common sense goes a long way on the inside.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Danny: No I was not able to choose an inmate as a cellmate. I was actually housed in A10 when I first arrived at the jail and there were 16 other people in the cell. I was then moved to C6 where there were 9 of us total (including myself.)
