Interview with Eric, Paul and Cody

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Eric: everyday certain time periods
Paul: Hardly ever didn't want the stress of family seeing me pike that it killed me bad
Cody: You were allowed two half hour visits per week. You were able to have two visitors but they had to split the time which they had to pay attention to.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Eric: yes
Paul: Yes u couldn't have no contact with family on communication through glass. Which also sucked cuz u couldn't rly hear I hated it suck man
Cody: They had to stand outside til the door opened then wait in line then sit for an hour so usually it was about a two and a half hour process just to get into me at least.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Eric: phone both style
Paul: 5inch glass an phones what u think It was a walk in the park hell no. It fucking depressing seeing ur family though 5 inch glass heartbreaking never wanna go though that again I was very depressed I thought I was heart wrenching to see my friend an my "father" did not help
Cody: It was rows of seats on each side of the glass. The lights give u a head ache and its cold. The phones don't work well so many have to speak loudly which makes other people have to speak louder.the rooms are dirty they need to be cleaned more regularly or have some type of hand Sanitizer at least for the visitors they should.
