Interview with Kaylie, Alfredo and Rosa

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Kaylie: I'm not sure how many dorms there was. I was in a dorm and there were 12 bunk beds. Only thing was they didn't have a ladder to climb up in them. So you could either try to jump up on them or sleep on the floor. I slept on the floor.
Alfredo: There were 7 different floors not blocks.
Rosa: 2 for woman and their was a whole floor for men

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Kaylie: I think they just called them by numbers.
Alfredo: They floors were numbered and the only floors with specific names were Trustee, Max, Pride, and the Medical hold.
Rosa: there are two dorms or woman named LJ and LB

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Kaylie: They did keep the violent girls from the rest of us. You could hear them in the next dorm over getting into fights.
Alfredo: The Pride floor had a basic training type atmosphere for inmates trying to overcome addiction and receive self improvement classes. Max had inmates that had got into fights or disobeyed a guard (they also housed the females). The trustee floor had inmates that wanted to work and had non violent charges. The rest of the floors had a mixture of violent and non violent, murderers, rapist, child molesters, traffic violations, burglars, and guys who owed child support.
Rosa: any, they just kept co-defendants separate and also inmates that had been previously in arguments againist one another they would house seperate or eurity reasons and that was a good iea

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Kaylie: The nicest part was just going home. The worst part was just being there. That was my first time and I was so embarassed to just be there.
Alfredo: The worst parts about the blocks were the 21 hour lock down, the younger inmates that yell at night and beat on the door, the light that stays on all day and night, and the child size trays they fed us. The nicest part of the the blocks were walking out of the building for the last time.
Rosa: there was nothing nice about either, both were dirty an disgusting with people sleeping all over the floors, the only thing nice was mail visittion an commissary that is all,some of the officers were nice but they were 0uew and far between,. water pressure was horrible in both and had no privcy at all
