Interview with Carlos

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Carlos: I had no difficulty getting along with other inmates, because Nueces county is almost always on lockdown. That means there is so much fighting going on between gangs that the doors are always locked. This county has the most amount of prison gangs that I have encountered thus far, same rules apply here as in any other county. I was sent to something called the farmers tank right on the outskirts of the city.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Carlos: Stay clean, follow the dorm rules, stay out of other peoples business. Also it wasnt very difficult to stay out of trouble with other inmates because there is a gaurd on duty right in the middle of the dorm room, and we were all trustees in the farmers tank the best place to be in Nueces county.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Carlos: All beds are assigned, but if you know someone there is no problem mingling with other inmates, its an open dormroom, with an indoor basketball court seperated by plexiglass, smoking is allowed.
