Interview with Tawnie

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Tawnie: I don't know.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Tawnie: Yes, A,B,C

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Tawnie: Don't know. We had 8 women in 6 person cell, downstairs. I think it was supposed to be trustee tank, but jail is overcrowded (gee, I wonder why, there are far too many people in jail, like I was, for absolutely nothing) The system is corrupt, and targets poor oppressed people.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Tawnie: The upstairs women's block had a walking area, outside area, and separate shower area we could go out to once in awhile. At least we could walk almost daily (pace). Downstairs was cramped and no privacy whatsoever. We only got exercise or outside if the jailers felt like taking us out (rare).
