ISIS Beatle El Shafee Elsheikh - USP Florence ADMAX

El Shafee Elsheikh, 33, kidnapped and killed four American hostages for ISIS. USP Florence ADMAX, is a “supermax” penitentiary in Arizona. He will be searched, shackled, and escorted by multiple officers each time he enters or leaves his soundproof cell, which is 7 feet by 12 feet. He is confined 23 hours per day. A window 42 inches high and 4 inches wide allows natural light but prisoners can't see beyond the building.
Cells have unmovable stools and desks made of concrete.

A recreation hour is allowed in an outdoor cage slightly larger than the cell. Inside the cage, only the sky is visible. Meals are delivered to cells.
Everything at USP Florence ADMAX is about control. El Shafee Elsheikh will be assigned to the Special Security Unit, also called the H-Unit. These cells are reserved for inmates with DOJ-imposed Special Administrative Measures intended to strictly limit all communications with the outside world.

"As soon as they come through the door ... you see it in their faces," former ADX warden Robert Hood said. "The Supermax is life after death, it's long term, it's worse than death."
