Why do you have to have a cell mate in jail and prison ?

Don’t they know it adds tons of stress and adds to the danger and violence

    Its dumb. They might just do it to add stress. If you go to prison, you sorta are ment to be stressed.

      It's not even True. i have been in solitary and in dorms/quonsets with one-man Cubicles. More often than not.

    You Don't. What Idiot told you This?

    In Some county jails, you get one to 7 cell mates. Some, you are Solitary. Depends.

    In Prison, depends Entirely on Yard. Some are two man bunks; a new guy gets Upper bunk. If upper guy gets transferred to another yard or pod, the new fish gets the lower.

    In most yards, there are individual bunks, individual "cubicles".these have 12 men to a Quonset hut, or 200 to a pod.

    Sometimes, having a celly U get along with relieves stress,boredom.. Play gin rummy together. Especially a repeat offender who can tell you the rules. I had one, an ex-Aryan Brotherhood, who told me to stay away from them. He'd turned Christian, but still had his tattoos.

    Unless one gets put in solitary, they have one or more cellmates, depending on the size of the cell.

      Wrong. Many yards have one-man "cubicles".
