JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Ian: The nicest part to me is the handball court. You also can meet a lot of good people in there. The worst part is going in there and not knowing where they are going to put you. First time you come in they go to R&O which you're by yourself just waiting to see what will happen.
Ron: Nice??? that is tough. It was fairly clean. The worst was the "yard" was enclosed in cement there was no way to see any nature or out side.
Bodie: each block has restrictions the higher the level the more privelieges you have . Nice to be out til 9pm in level 4 where in 3 you are locked down by quarter to 6 i believe for the rest of the night. where in 4 you dnt have til 9pm and then level 5 you can come back out after count til 11pm and you pretty much dnt get watched in level 5 they trust you enough to know what to do. Level 4 is 12 man cells that 12 females to one roon (and vice versa males) two toilets two sinks and 6 bunks thats alot of noise and girls to room with and I didn't like that set up at all the other levels are 2man cells level 4 got most inmates as level 5 got just a few. you get better commisarry you can order and more classes you can attend.
