Interview with Ivan and Bobby

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Ivan: I found it very difficult to get along with other inmates because I was very honest with all of the inmates when I told them what I was in prison for. I told them that I was falsely accused by a twenty-one year old woman, and they all assumed that I was a pedophiler.
Bobby: No all my boys were locked Up with me too I was just fine we got along and of you didn't like some one you beat them up then move on.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Ivan: I had to spend a lot of time in my cell to avoid fights and problems with other inmates, but I still got into well over seventy-five fights with other inmates while I was in prison. I was also treated badly by the officers as they used to beat me up also.
Bobby: I was always starting the fights. If a man looked at me funny I let it be known I for In trouble a few times but it was fine it was nothing no one could punk on me though that's all that mattered to me while being in jail I guess

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Ivan: I never had to share a cell with a cellmate. Since I had a psychiatric history, that gave me the advantage of being able to reside by myself in my own cell.
Bobby: I'd choose My Brody berto. I'd never change cells With him me and him were boys since day one I'd never leave his side ever... I wish he was out now man
