Interview with Tim

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Tim: They called them pods. There was a lot of different types of pods. Some had single cell, some had eight men to a cell and others had an open dorm kind of a thing.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Tim: They just used A-100 A-200 and so on.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Tim: Actually no, they didn't seperate anyone. I was in with a murderer at one time.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Tim: They feed you pretty good and it's prety clean. That's the nicest part. The worst was we had a rec yard but it was all stone, no basketball court or anything. If the guards caught you exercising they they would put you in lock down.
