Interview with Sparkie, Craig and Allison

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Sparkie: about 20
Craig: Not sure but there's quite a few. Immates are locked up based on there crime. If your in jail for DWI your not going to be locked up with someone who committed murder or rape. You'll be housed with people who have similar offences.
Allison: Unsure. Only 2 for the women.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Sparkie: all named by letters
Craig: They have a letter then a number. For example I was in A-2.
Allison: K-Pod 9(consisted of k1,k2,k3,k4,k5). And 1 dorm type housing( unsure of the name; I was never housed there).

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Sparkie: gangs, minimum security, maximum security, ins, and lockdown
Craig: They house you based on the crime comitted.
Allison: There was intake for a day to 3 days while one was classified. Then we were moved. I was in KPod to there was:intake, a max unit, a weekend unit, and to regular units.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Sparkie: nicest was being able to go to work, worst was when the a/c or water was out for days
Craig: I only spent time in one block. next to my block was the A-1 block. The people in there had similar offences to the people in my block. We also shared the same outside area they did. We alternated our time outside with them. We were never outsde at the same time.
Allison: Different units had nicer showers or working microwaves. Some had better reading options and more seating in the dayroom. I was never in the 'dorm' block. I was only kept in the K pod so I cant comment on that, but many believed that was better because you could go outside all day long.
