Larkin: This one's done it all; robbery, kidnapping, murder, extortion. His name is Cyrus Grissom, aka, Cyrus the Virus. Thirty-nine years old. Twenty-five of them spent in our institutions. But he's bettered himself inside. Earned two degrees including his Juris Doctor. He also killed eleven fellow inmates, incited three riots and escaped twice. Likes to brag that he's killed more men than cancer. Cyrus is a poster child for the criminally insane. He's a true product of the system.

Larkin: Nathan Jones, aka, Diamond Dog. Former general of the Black Guerrillas. He blew up a meeting of the National Rifle Association saying, and I quote, "they represented the basest negativity of the white race." He wrote a book in prison called "Reflections in a Diamond Eye." New York Times called it a wakeup call for the black community. They're talking to Denzel for the movie.

Larkin: That's William Bedford, aka, Billy Bedlam.
Simms: The mass murderer?
Larkin: The same. He caught his wife in bed with another man. Left her alone. Drove four towns over to his wife's family's house. Killed her parents, her brothers, her sisters, even her dog.

Plot hole: All pilots are carefully trained and have the technology to secretly transmit a code that tells air traffic control there is a hijacking in progress, without having to say a word. They also have a hijack code, something that sounds completely innocuous to you or me, but would be instantly recognisable to the airport authorities.

Question: Why is there a cache of weapons in the belly of the plane? Is there some reason in US Marshall rules?

Answer: If there was ever an emergency landing the weapons would be needed with the prisoners as they most likely will have to exit the plane at some point. There doesn't seem to be any information around that says that every prisoner transport plane would have the same amount of weapons or in the same spot but it seems likely most would have backup weapons for situations like that.
