Yeah, that 'cell' may be 10K sq ft or more too, furnished with a big screen tv, personal fridge, hot tub, etc etc. LOL

Perhaps that the answer. Given his severe limitations the adjustment may have been far easier for him than it would be for more able people.

Yes and he will still wield enough power on the outside that no one will mess with him.

Each cell is 7'x12'. Hardly the lap of luxury you are making it out to be. Plenty of big names are in this supermax prison and NO ONE gets preferential treatment. Not sure why you think he will be any different. That's why they call these supermax prisons. LOL!!!

No one will mess with him because he will basically be in isolation. Why do people think guys like this go to supermax prisons? Because they are the worst of the worst and will NEVER see the outside and be alone pretty much for the rest of their lives. Do some research and read who is in this prison. He is going to be miserable and rightly so.

It might interest posters to know that this has not come up in the C-D Philadelphia thread at all.

No one cares enough, I suspose, to bring it up.

I'm a native Philadelphian like he is and am very familiar where his Elkins Park house is and where he is serving his time.

I never liked his kind of comedy so there's no loss for me there.

If he dies in prison, fine.

It has nothing to do with whether I think he's scum or not, everyone is free to make their own prison experience their own, and find their own lessons in it.
He is still challenging the verdict and claiming he's innocent. He isn't accepting it.

He’s accepting the present moment is what I meant.

Yep, exactly.

For those who don't know, Sci Phoenix is the new replacement for Graterford
