JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Cori: At one point of time I didn't have problems with
inmates. The third time I was jailed I had
problems wuth inmates because they thought they
could talk to me any kind of way as well as have
total control over the tv. They wanted to fight
with me and I wouldn't because I was pregrant.
The very first time I was ever jailed in Stark
County I got into a fight with a girl over some
eggs and toothpaste. We both got into trouble
but I got out of it only because I got on the
bunk and left it alone. Grady: I do and I don't. Ignorant assholes, we clash. If
you are straight up,we're cool.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Cori: Basically tried to either ignore it or tell the
people in charge that they were causing problems
with me. If they started with me I would walk
away from it and just go back to my bunk and go
to sleep to ignore them. Some would try to
actually fight but by that time the staff would
be in there to break it up. Grady: Hold my tongue on all the bullshit stories I heard.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Cori: No. We were in different sections in the women's
part of the jail. We were assigned bunks. We
never got to pick our bunks out. If we had
problems with our bunkie then we had to deal
with it until a fight broke out. I didn't know
anyone in there besides the people that came in
off the streets and they usually went to a
different cell area. Grady: Was in a dorm fit for 8 but they had 12 to 14 guys
in a a time.
