Interview with Kaylie, Reggie, Alfredo and Rosa

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Kaylie: No. I didn't talk to nobody. I just stayed to myself. They did talk to me, trying to be friendly and asking where I was from and all that.
Reggie: I'm a good size man. I had no real issues with other inmates. Besides I was into my bible and taught bible classes
Alfredo: I only had a problem with a few inmates. The one's that think that their charges are cool so they try to talk themselves up. But for the most part no one bothered me.
Rosa: no i stuck to myself and did my time alone and it is safer that way so you dont get in anyones business or personal problems because that is why arguments start

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Kaylie: In there they were kind of friendly. They didn't look like they wanted to be in a fight. There was no bullies in there but I still just stayed to myself. I think thats the best thing you can do.
Reggie: Just be myself. I have a way of doing that
Alfredo: Honestly I don't try to be but a lot of folks are intimidated by my physique. I'm ex military and I take good care of myself and it shows. I also treat others with the same respect I expect regardless, of their charges and I'm Christian so I stay in my bible. I a quiet person so I don't really give anyone a reason to start anything with me.
Rosa: stay to your self and keep your mouth shut and not argue over the phones or television. just stay by yourself and dont make friends because no one there is your friend and you hope never to see them again anyway so it relly should not matter what they say or do

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Kaylie: No. I was in a dorm and they just told you where your bunk was at and that was it.
Reggie: I was in a cell b;ock much like a dorm
Alfredo: I was not able to choose a cellmate, but I was able to get a cell by myself because I showed good behavior. When I did have cell mates it only lasted for about 2 weeks tops.
