The all-male prison population at ADX Supermax includes inmates who experienced chronic disciplinary problems while at other prisons, those who have killed other prisoners and prison guards, gang leaders, high-profile criminals, and organized crime mobsters. It also houses criminals who could pose a threat to national security including Al-Qaeda and U. The harsh conditions at ADX Supermax have earned it a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as being one of the most secure prisons in the world. From the prison design to the daily operations, ADX Supermax strives for complete control over all prisoners at all times. Modern, sophisticated security and monitoring systems are located inside and along the outside perimeter of the prison grounds. The monolithic design of the facility makes it difficult for those unfamiliar with the facility to navigate inside the structure. Massive guard towers, security cameras, attack dogs, laser technology, remote-controlled door systems, and pressure pads exist inside a foot high razor fence that surrounds the prison grounds.
With a propensity for violence and access to near-unlimited resources, El Chapo was an obvious candidate for the ADX. Terry L. Nichols met Timothy J. McVeigh while the pair were serving in the U. They both became vehement anti-government conspiracy theorists, studied bomb making together at gun shows and, in , they conspired to destroy the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Their bombs ultimately killed people, including 19 young children and babies.

Edward Nellson, who is behind bars in Florence on the same compound as dangerous criminals including El Chapo , the Unabomber and the Boston Bomber says he should be moved out of his jail because he is vulnerable to exposure and is being subjected to cruel and unusual punishment.
