Time off for good behavior
Food and Commissary
JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Karl: There were some inmates that I did not like and they did not care much for me, but we just generally avoided each other and everything worked out.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Karl: Generally, just avoidance seemed to be the most effective. Usually, they would cause their own demise by escalation of their anti-social behavior and be taken to the SHU (Special Holding unit).
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Karl: No. On the block I was assigned to, which was a Protective Custody unit, you were just put in with whoever you were put next to and could only change cell assignments if there was something wrong with the accommodations in that cell ) broken toilet, water would not shut off, biohazard from a person with AIDS or other disease such as MRSA, etc.
