After they are sentenced for their crimes, what happens to the worst of the worst? What should we do with them? How should they spend the rest of their lives if they are spared the death penalty?
It is here in Florence, Colorado that people like Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Marathon bombers, and Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera will find refuge.
No one has ever escaped the prison since it was built in the late 1980s, and it is one of the highest security complexes in the world. ADX Florence has a reputation as one of the scariest prisons in the US as prisoners are locked up alone for 23 hours a day in 12ft by 7ft cells without windows.
