A select North Carolina Patrol team, assigned to intercept illegal drugs on Interstates 95 and 85, charged black male drivers at nearly twice the rate of other troopers working the same roads -- mostly with minor traffic offenses when no drugs were found. All 12 troopers on the Special Emphasis Team charged minorities more often than the average for the 1,355 member patrol. One team member charged 27 minorities in a row, many of them for seat-belt violations or driving without a license.
