The State finds that the South Carolina Highway Patrol has promoted troopers who have shot and beaten motorists for little apparent reason. The internal affairs unit has cleared troopers cited in brutality and false-arrest cases. Some have been transferred to other parts of the state; some have been allowed to resign without investigations of charges against them. The patrol has kept few records on its rogue officers, and even purged a massive amount of records during an administrative housecleaning several years ago. (Sept. 1-2, 1996)
