Food and Commissary
JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Zach: Do not talk back to any hacks, do not let anything get worse than it really is by making it bigger than it really is/was. Do not trip on the TV or the phone and even if who-ever is running it seems unfair, its not yours, its not your home, its theirs. Lastly all this will pass, just hang in there and deal with it, try not to whine about it
Trevor: HAVE SOMEONE PUT MONEY ON YOUR BOOKS OR YOU WILL STARVE, IF YOU CAN HELP A HUNGRY NEIGHBOR, DO IT!
Andy: First week in there might be rough but eventually you'll get use to it also if you want a little creature comfort make sure you have money on your books so you can at least get commissary aka food and other things.
JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Zach: Keep your head held up, and do your own time not every ones else’s.
Trevor: Don't share with those who seek out the weak. Follow suit but don't kiss anyone's behind and DON'T EVER SNITCH ON ANYONE EVER. You have the option to say, 'I DON'T KNOW AND I DON'T REMEMBER. There is no way for them to know if you are telling truth. If it isn't any of your business, KEEP AWAY FROM IT.
Andy: Don't do the crime...
