El Chapo Is NOT A Happy Man In Brooklyn

El Chapo was extradited from Mexico to the United States earlier this year, and his early stint in Brooklyn prison has not been a great one for the man also known as  Joaquín Guzmán.

He has been held on solitary confinement, and his lawyer is trying to make sure he is treated what he considers fairly, and have him put in general population.

According to TMZ:

Chapo’s lawyers say the conditions are horrendous … he’s confined to a closet-sized cell 23 hours a day, 5 days a week. Weekends are even worse … he’s in his cell 24 hours a day. He never sees daylight unless he passes by a window when he meets with his lawyers.

As for the one hour when he gets out … Chapo gets to run on a treadmill or ride a stationary bike in a cell with a cadre of guards.

Chapo is fed through a slot in his cell door. He complains he can’t sleep because the lights are always on and he shivers because the AC is cranked up too high.

And the famed escape artist says he can’t tell if it’s day or night because the clock he bought at the commissary was confiscated.

Looks like law enforcement is trying to ensure he doesn’t escape…again.

He was captured in a raid back in 2016 weeks after a rare interview was published in the Rolling Stone.
