Every State besides possibly Alaska have Supermax Prisons or Seg Units.
The Colorado ADX supermax holds a lot of *media celebrity* inmates though.
Larry Hoover of the Gangster Disciples, and Barry Mills and Tyler Bingham of the Aryan Brotherhood. ADX also houses foreign terrorists, including the
only person convicted in civilian court of the September 11 attacks, Zacarias Moussaoui, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Ramzi
Yousef; as well as domestic terrorists, including serial bombers Ted Kaczynski and Eric Rudolph. Timothy McVeigh, who carried out the 1995 Oklahoma
City bombing, was housed at ADX before he was sentenced to death in 1997 and transferred to the United States Penitentiary, Terre Haute, which houses
federal death row inmates. McVeigh's co-conspirator, Terry Nichols, is serving a life sentence at ADX. Robert Hanssen, the former FBI agent who
betrayed several spies to the Soviet Union and Russia, is serving a life sentence at ADX for his crimes.
Some of these inmates might have been seen as political prisoners by extremist groups.
The Huffington post conspiracy angle didn't make complete sense to me, the inmate involved was convicted of sexual slavery and was trying to get his
sentence served in Saudi Arabia. The letter from Tom Clements denying the transfer looked like typical "press kit" rather than an actual
investigation leak. Presumably Al-Turki would be more comfortable serving time in a Misogynist state?
Guess I was expecting Clements to have intervened in a political action against an inmate with a murder MO like Kaczynski. For example allowing his
property to be sold at public auction or something.
The story this morning just link the murder back to that new Colorado gun legislation.
