Interview with Dodo and Misty

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Dodo: Many men and women are repeat offenders at BCJ, so coming to jail is like a reunion. Trouble between inmates occurs most often with "cheating" in relationships or same-sex relationship among women.
Misty: Not really some people are just ride but they mostly put them in the back isolation part so that they could not get into any trouble or start problems with others

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Dodo: healthy coping is walk away, go to cell, talk to someone, write, sleep. sometimes the other person is in your face, so yelling at each other is common.
Misty: Pretty much in order to avoid fighting and arguing it is best just to stay to yourself and not talk to anyone. Also stay in your own cell and not go into anyone's cell that way you can not be accused of taking anything from any one. Also following the rules helps too

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Dodo: Cell mates changed often, and it seems that officers had a lot of power in the selection process, also the Deputy Warden would make decisions about cell mates. Individuals not able to choose. Separation orders were strictly enforced.
Misty: Cell mates are not able to be chosen you get who they give you. Cell mates change if someone is committed or if some one gets released. Or if there is some problem.
