Interview with Danny

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Danny: at first I had no problems, because i was in a small block with only 6 other inmates on the block. because of the number of inmates on this block, and my physical size, i didnt have any problems. but 5 mo. into my sentence, they decided to move some of us to another block, one that had many more inmates. because of my crime, i requested "protective custody" for my own safety, and was in a cell that was on lock down 24/7

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Danny: be mindfull and respectfull of the other inmates. i tryed to keep to myself and not bother anyone, if some one did approach me, i would speak, and or listen. when i was in "PC" i didnt have to worry about those issues because i was on lock down 24/7

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Danny: i was not able to choose my cell mates. but when i was in the small block for the first five months, i was in a cell by my self. the same was true when i went into "PC".
