Leisure Time

Interview with Russ

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Russ: school, gym, weights, running, Exercise not enough to do but we even had TV but imagine a room full of inmates who want to watch football rather then a scheduled movie, or talked all the way through it, the ones called animals who had no care at all of others, so common

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Russ: had access to entertainment if that what you want to call it lol. it was fierce at times, due to guys acting like animals and picking on the smaller guys, so don't seem week seem strong even if your a smaller guy, this don't mean acting lie a bad ass this will get you beat up.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Russ: no actually this is where i became a healthy man, i gained weight and came out looking very healthy, i was very happy with myself for the first time in my life, to be healthy was a great feeling.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Russ: just about every day we went outside, the worst part was walking to the mess hall while snow was up to our knees while the prison only gave us very thin coats, hardly worth waring, and shoes never fit, and the walk was long due to the line, and head count while out in the cold. was very hard,

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Russ: yes there were many denominations for Christian and Jews and Muslims all faiths were covered, and separated for good reasons indeed,
