Interview with Nate

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Nate: yes I did,most are child like punks who love to start trouble and don't care about life,they don't even like to bathe.When you get so many men from different background there's bound to be trouble when set in an animal like emviroment.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Nate: sometimes you have to walk away and just swallow you pride because I didn't want to have to stay there any longer then want I was there for,its hard to walk away when your so mad and its not good to do in jail because other inmates take you for a weak person!

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Nate: No,you get who ever they put you with,if you don't like the color of your cellmate or just plain out don't like him then you can get a new one by starting a fight with him,punches and blood must be thrown and drawn for this to happen.
