When I was in Apod back in June, my cell mate was this old man named Tardiff. He had just had back surgery & was all messed up. He was with me in the cell & after a day he just stopped talking. He was in so much pain he couldn’t move. I called the COs in & they called a code blue & dragged him out of there like a dead deer on a sheet! He was back a day later! He was all gnarled up & wasn’t making no noise! When he fell off his bed, they just put his mattress on the floor, said he’d be more comfortable there! He wouldn’t talk & I was bringing food to him. Finally they took him away again. He just showed up again in the dorms so you can interview him. He says he don’t remember nothing, though…
