About a month ago I was spotting at EWR, and I saw a Red and White MD-82 taxi. Now I remember reading another post about it being seen in Chicago, so I knew it was a government aircraft. When I turned on my scanner its callsign was "JUSTICE", but with no flight number. And it wasnt listed on any arrival/departure websites, so you can imagine how happy i was to see this bird. Besides transporting prisoners which is obvious by the callsign. What else is this plane used for, and does anyone have any pics of it. I know Planet Airways also transports convicts.

Here's one, it seems that they have 2 ICAO callsigns which are DOJ & JUD, probably depends on what they're actually doing on the day.

They belong to the DOJ. Haul around Federal prisoners.

I’ve also seen a 737.

Gawd, the stories one could tell being cabin crew for Justice.
