Interview with Eric, Paul and Cody

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Eric: no i knew a few dudes in there
Paul: Yes an everybody was dope sick or bi polar other ppl wouldnt shut up. Very immature as well keep us up at 3 am with noise harassment to the guards
Cody: No not really I tried my best to stay to myself. Getting in trouble wasn't an option for me I wanted out as quickly as possible. I knew some people that were up there so I was okay but to people who don't good luck with that because its hard to stick it out on their own most people aren't mentally stable enough.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Eric: just kept to myself watched tv
Paul: I avoided everybody I kept to my self. I did npt associate with anybody I ignored ppl an kept to me. I didn't trade buy nor sell things of mine... ppl are snitches I can't stand jail.. u get accused of stuff I did not do. Guards are assholes yeah
Cody: I avoided the childish talk and besides qho i knew for my town i kept my thoughts and opinions to myself and staywd to myself pretty much. Mind my own business and expect the same from other inmates. Don't deal with or feed into drama because when men have time to do everything but can only sit there and think drama gets real petty.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Eric: no,when i first went in my cellie was there about 4 months
Paul: Everybody did it1 time every 2 months. I stuck with who I hsd I did not wanna know anybody. There all two faces bastards lies an deception was that place
Cody: Once processed it all depended on who the counciler was so it depended. It also depended on the behavior of you and the person you wanted as your celly. They don't change the cells around unless you ask to be moved due to any type of personal issue. Good behavior was always the key.
