Default Transitional Housing Unit?

Hi all,

I tried to post in the KVSP Newbie thread about my question but now I can't even find it to see if anyone replied so I'll try it this way and hopefully get some responses. 😀 My boyfriend was transferred to KVSP Transitional Housing Unit three weeks ago. He has written me once from there and sounded really nervous about getting killed. Granted, he has been in solitary for 17 years before this so I know being in a general population Unit is really new for him (and starting the debriefing process after all this time!) but I would love to hear from you all about your loved one's experiences with safety in this yard and maybe the debriefing process in general? I mean, I recognize prison is ALWAYS dangerous and there are NO guarantees but have your loved ones had really bad experiences in this yard? Or in KVSP in general? I haven't gotten a phone call yet either, so I don't know if they have really long orientations there?

Anyway, I'm struggling right now and would love some support/feedback/info. As you all know, it's really hard to sit here not knowing (but of course way harder for them)! Thank you in advance!

Rather than remove your post as a cross post, I did move it to the Newbie thread....there seems to be more questions in this 2nd post than your other one, which has a reply on the previous page

Thank you so much! This I should exactly what I needed! I saw some statistics about so many more deaths in SNY yards so I freaked out...and of course it sucks not hearing from him. I will just keep praying! Thanks again!

My husband spent the majority of his time on an sny yard. Few issues there.
