Interview with Carlos

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Carlos: In the downtown jail there are two tier L shaped rooms that house 2 inmates per room, about 50 per unit. In the farmers tank which is seperate and in a different location has 3 big dorms that has a more army bunk style and houses about forty inmates per unit.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Carlos: The main was called lockdown central and the trustee tank was called the famrmers tank, this is what the inmates called it, I dont know the real names.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Carlos: All inmates are blended here, except for the females and the transvestites.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Carlos: The nicest thing would have to be that we went out monday through friday and had weekends off of work. We worked 8 hours a day and came home do some chores and do it all over again the next day. Also the showers always had hot water. The worst was that when using the restroom everyone could see and some people did stare.
