Interview with Helen and Leon

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Helen: I didn't have any problems with other inmates but I did see a girl that was consistantely in trouble for trying to fight with other inmates and corrections officers. She was always locked in her cell.
Leon: Most of the inmates were pretty chill. I was in the minimum security block so it as just people for child support, DWI, non-violent drug charges, etc.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Helen: I wasn't in any situations with other inmates but after seeing some situations, I just choose to avoid talking too much to people. I knew that I wasn't going to be there long so there was no point of making friends. I did speak to my cell mate a few times but other than that, I kept to myself.
Leon: Just mind your own business and don't disrespect other inmates. Even the gang members were pretty chill unless someone messed with them.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Helen: I wasn't able to choose my cellmate and I wasn't there long enough to have my cell mate change. I only witnessed people being released and new inmates coming in.
Leon: No one has a choice in the matter.
