NEW YORK – In the world of corrections, there are prisoners who are at risk of security, and then there is El Chapo.
Drug ruler Joaquin Guzman has an unrivaled record of jails, escaped security of two-level Mexican prisons before his final catch and extradition in the United States
. rather than a life-like cartridge with Houdini
Experts say Guzman seems to be the ideal candidate for the federal government's Supermax prison in Florence, also known as ADX for "administrative maximum".
"El Chapo is perfect for an account," said Cameron Lindsay, a retired supervisor who led three federal blockades, including the Metropolitan Arrest Center in Brooklyn. "I would be totally shocked if it wasn't sent to ADX."
Supermax-built buildings in the old mining town, about two hours south of Denver, are the nation's most violent criminals, with many of the 400 prisoners alone. 23 hours a day in 7 – 12 foot (2.1 – 3.7 meter) cells with fixed reinforced concrete
Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, September 11, Conspiracy Zacarias Moussaoui and Oklahoma City Bombing Terry Nichols
But Guzman, who was convicted in June of a large-scale drug smuggling to the US and dozens of murders, stands out even from Supermax's sad journal because of his almost mythical reputation when he divorced.
This includes sensational 2015 escape from the biggest prison prison in Central Mexico, where you communicate with your mobile phone partners, slip d in the gate, shower, back in the back of the motorcycle and freed through a long, hand-crossed tunnel.
Usually there is a bribery that allowed it to be done, and in 2001, it was bribing. Gzman was escorted from another high security Mexican prison laundry basket
"There had to be a secret agreement from within," said former US drug control administration spokesman Mike Vigil, who worked in Mexico in secret. "Of course, corruption has played an important role in both impressive getaways."
Can this happen to Supermax?
Supermax prisoners spend a year in single prisons and often spend days “with just a few words on them,” a message from Amnesty International was found. One former prisoner described a lock as a "high-tech version of hell high technology to shut down all sensory perception" with an interview with the Boston Globe.
Most Supermax prisoners have a TV, but their real world view is a 4-inch window designed by does not allow them to even determine where they are indoors. Human interaction is minimal. Prisoners eat all their meals in their cellular loneliness, in their toilets
The room itself is protected by razor fences, arms towers, heavily armed patrols and assault dogs.
"If you have ever been imprisoned in a prison, this is an office in Florence," Burl Cain, formerly the longest security officer of Louisiana State Security Service in England, said. "It's a prison for all prisons."
Although the federal authorities did not say where El Chapo would be populated, he looked at a "no escape and no return," said US prosecutor Richard Donoghue on Tuesday's verdict.
Guzman's birth to his three-month trial included a number of security measures that reflected his huge flight risk. He was settled in a large security metropolitan corridor, the Manhattan lock, called the Little Gitmo Wing, known to terrorists and crowds,
. El Chapo is a federal court police motorcycle with a SWAT team and ambulance tracked by helicopters. Very armed federal officials and bomb spy dogs patrolled the federal court house in Brooklyn. Officials were very concerned about security, in fact, Guzman was forbidden to hug his wife in his case.
This will probably not be a problem if it goes to Supermax, where all visits are unrelated, and prisoners
