Inside hellhole prison where ISIS Beatles could be shut off from ALL contact with outside world for rest of their livesAugust 24, 2020
THIS is what the hellhole prison that two members of the infamous ISIS "Beatles" will be extradited to.
El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Kotey – known as "George" and "Ringo" – finally will be extradited to the US as prosecutors agreed they will not be put to death.
ISIS fanatic Kotey revealed both he and Elsheikh are living in fear as they face potentially being shipped to ADX Florence – also known as the "Alcatraz of the Rockies", reports The Mirror.
The terrorists said being locked up in a US jail would be the "worst thing that could happen".
ADX Florence has a reputation as one of the US's toughest jails as prisoners are locked up alone for 23 hours a day in 12ft by 7ft cells without windows.
It houses some of the world's most infamous criminals and terrorists, including drug baron El Chapo, hate preacher Abu Hamza, and shoe bomber Richard Reid.
No one has ever escaped the jail since it was built in the late 1980s, and it is one of the highest security complexes in the world.
And if the terrorists do not behave they could face being banished to H-unit, an even more secure and darkened part of the prison.
Kotey moaned: "I have already served four years, maybe five. I was told I was in a kill or capture list after my name and picture was put out in the media.
"It has not been easy for me.
“Shafee was also asked about it too –he said he would not like to spend time in an American prison. No, that would not be good.”
DENIED HUMAN CONTACT
Located outside an old mining town about two hours south of Denver, ADX Florence houses the nation's most violent offenders.
Burl Cain, a former maximum-security warden said: "It's the prison of all prisons.
"If ever there were an escape-proof prison, it's the facility at Florence.”
Many of its 400 inmates are held alone for 23 hours a day in 7-by-12-foot cells with fixed furnishings made of reinforced concrete.
An Amnesty International report found prisoners spend years in solitary confinement and often go days "with only a few words spoken to them”.
One former inmate, in an interview with The Boston Globe, described the lockup as a "hi-tech version of hell, designed to shut down all sensory perception".
Most are given a TV, but their only actual view of the outside world is a 4-inch window.
Human interaction is virtually non-existent.
Meals are eaten in the solitude of their own cells, within feet of their toilets.
Outside razor-wire fences, gun towers, armed patrols and attack dogs make escape attempts futile.
Should a prisoner escape, the remote area means they can be located very quickly.
It houses some of the most notorious criminals to set foot in an American courtroom.

But El Chapo, the most prolific narco in history, is one of the most notorious inmates who is serving to life plus 30 years in the "supermax" prison.
Joaquín Guzmán, 62, was found guilty of 10 charges, including drug trafficking and money laundering, by a federal court in New York in February.
He escaped a Mexican jail through a tunnel in 2015, but was later arrested.
In 2017, the drug lord was extradited to the US where he was found guilty and sentences following his trial.
His rep has been gained not just for smuggling enormous amounts of narcotics into the US and having a hand in dozens upon dozens of murders, but also for breaking out of jail.
That includes a sensational 2015 escape from the maximum-security Altiplano prison in central Mexico.
Here he communicated with accomplices for weeks via a mobile phone who burrowed a tunnel and escape hatch beneath his shower.
When complete El Chapo hopped on the back of a waiting motorcycle and sped through a mile-long, hand-dug tunnel to freedom.
