Suite Life: Nie ma to jak statek (seria 2)

Seria druga amerykańskiego sitcomu młodzieżowego Suite Life: Nie ma to jak statek składa się z 28 odcinków. Została ona oryginalnie wyemitowana przez amerykański Disney Channel od 7 sierpnia 2009 do 18 czerwca 2010. W Polsce zaś premierowa emisja rozpoczęła się 16 stycznia 2010 i trwała do 30 stycznia 2011. W dziewiątym odcinku serii, do głównej obsady dołączył Doc Shaw wcielający się w Marcusa Little. Oprócz tego, począwszy od niej serial kręcony jest w HDTV. Premierowe emisje kolejnych odcinków spotykały się z wysoką widownią, zazwyczaj przekraczającą 4 miliony widzów, osiągając rekord w przypadku godzinnego odcinka „Lost at Sea“ (7.6 miliona widzów).

W grudniu 2008 potwierdzono, że Disney Channel pracuje nad drugą serią serialu kurtki bogner, liczącą trzynaście odcinków. 11 maja 2009 Disney wydał oświadczenie, w którym znalazła się wiadomość, że druga seria będzie składać się z większej ilości odcinków niż planowane trzynaście. Gary Marsh, prezes Disney Channels Worldwide, powiedział: „Wraz z drugą serią, obsada ‚The Suite Life‘ przechodzi do historii Disney Channel jako najdłużej pokazywani w naszych serialach bohaterowie – 138 półgodzinnych odcinków. Jesteśmy podekscytowani dzięki nim i dzięki wspaniałej, inspirującej grupie producenckiej, która to umożliwiła”.
7 sierpnia 2009 na amerykańskim Disney Channel wyemitowano pierwszy odcinek serii, „The Spy Who Shoved Me“. Wraz z jego premierą serial rozpoczął emisję w HDTV (na Disney Channel HD, na ścieżce SD wciąż pozostano przy SDTV). Oprócz tego wtedy zaprezentowano nową czołówkę. 2 października wyemitowano ósmy odcinek kurtki bogner, „Lost at Sea“, który jest odcinkiem godzinnym. Jego premiera przyciągnęła 7.6 miliona widzów, co jest rekordem serii i plasuje się na drugim miejscu w ogólnym rankingu całego serialu (pierwsze miejsce należy do „Double-Crossed“ z pierwszej serii). W kolejnym, dziewiątym odcinku, zatytułowanym „Roomies“, w serialu pojawiła się nowa postać i tym samym nowy bohater pierwszoplanowy, Marcus Little grany przez Doca Shawa. Odcinek 17, „Any Given Fantasy“, został premierowo wyemitowany w USA przez Disney XD, a na Disney Channel został pokazany 4 dni później. Ostatni odcinek serii, „Breakup in Paris“, został wyemitowany 18 czerwca 2010 i również jest odcinkiem godzinnym. W Polsce pierwszy odcinek został premierowo wyemitowany na Disney Channel 16 stycznia 2010 (w rok po premierze pierwszej serii). Ostatni odcinek 2 sezonu został premierowo wyemitowany 30 stycznia 2011 na kanale Disney XD.

North Carolina State Highway Patrol

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol is the highway patrol agency for North Carolina which has no per-se „state police“ agency. The Patrol has jurisdiction anywhere in the state except for federal or military installations. The Highway Patrol was created in 1929 and is a paramilitary organization with a rank structure similar to the armed forces. NCSHP personnel at times conduct formations, inspections, honor guard activities and drill similar to the armed forces drill and ceremonies. Troopers have a reputation in North Carolina for immaculate uniform and grooming standards. The primary mission of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol is to reduce traffic collisions and make the highways of North Carolina as safe as possible.
The Highway Patrol is one of the largest divisions of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety other than the Department of Correction (DOC). The patrol’s headquarters is located in the DPS headquarters in Raleigh in the Archdale Building downtown. This department also includes the NC State Bureau of Investigations (SBI), NC Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE), NC Department of Corrections (DOC), which includes probation and parole (Community Corrections), NC Civil Air Patrol, Emergency Management, NC State Capitol Police, and the NC National Guard.
Proposals to merge all state law enforcement: current legislative moves in NC advocate a consolidation of agencies within the state, possibly all under the highway patrol, as was done with the DMV Enforcement Section in 2002 (see below), though this is unlikely. Two of the state’s three natural conservation law enforcement agencies as one agency and then possibly to put them under the DPS in the same manner that the DMV Enforcement Section was consolidated with the SHP: The NC Marine Fisheries Law Enforcement (Marine Patrol-Fisheries Inspectors) enforces salt water conservation laws mainly in coastal regions, though they occasionally check seafood businesses, shippers and restaurants statewide and pilot boat laws, in addition to powers for other law enforcement. The larger NC Wildlife Enforcement (game warden protectors) enforce inland fish and game laws statewide and all laws on game lands. If the two agencies are consolidated, they would potentially then be put under the DPS. A third conservation agency, the NC State Parks law enforcement rangers may eventually be eyed for consolidation too. Another large state law enforcement agency, the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI), which was part of the NC Department of Justice and answered to the State’s elected Attorney general, historically a Democrat, was merged under Public Safety in 2014. SBI agents investigate arson, state civil rights, child daycare crimes and assist local law enforcement agencies as requested. This previous separation of agencies caused political tension when there was a Republican Governor who has no control over the SBI. Most Republican Governors shed SBI protection details and instead use plainclothes troopers who fell under the Governor’s direct control. The SBI now answers directly to the governor. The last large state agency is the DMV License and Theft Bureau which has plainclothes special agents (Inspectors) of the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) of the State department of Transportation who investigate license, registration, title, auto theft and inspection cases, with police powers similar to the SHP. DMV License and Theft Bureau is also being eyed for consolidation with the DPS, possibly as agents or investigators within the SHP. Officials in other agencies fear while they would mostly be sister agencies (not a division of SHP), they could become politically subservient to the SHP, if a total consolidation occurs. Proponents of the move point out that this would save money and resources by consolidating equipment, facilities, badges, weapons, training, uniforms, vehicles and markings and policies.
The Highway Patrol has many responsibilities. The primary job of the rank and file trooper is road safety through state revenue generation employing the enforcement of laws and the issuance of citations for traffic violations, including traffic collision investigation, issuing warning tickets, and finding, arresting, and processing impaired drivers. Troopers also routinely assist local police and sheriff’s departments on serious calls and back up other agencies. With a request made to and approved by higher headquarters, troopers also assist local officers and agencies with search warrant executions, mass arrest warrant service and „round-ups“ and other requests for help from various agencies. Troopers also set up road checks for drunken drivers. These „checkpoints‘ result in arrests and citations for drug and weapon charges, DWI, suspended licenses and other crimes. The patrol’s air wing and its helicopters routinely assist with manhunts, pursuits and lifesaving emergencies.
Because a state trooper is a sworn peace officer, and although their primary duty is traffic enforcement, they assist in the aforementioned duties as they also can perform other law enforcement functions. Troopers are referred to as „members“ if they are commissioned, sworn troopers and it is a breach of internal traditional protocol for a NC trooper to claim to „work for“ the patrol. Rather, they are taught to proudly state: „I am a member of the Patrol“ and refer to themselves only as „Trooper“ NC Troopers bristle at being referred to as an „officer“.
Since its inception in 1929, the NC State Highway Patrol has suffered the most deaths of any law enforcement agency in North Carolina, with 61 Troopers, Patrolmen and DMV Officers having been killed in the line of duty; a large proportion of those have been killed by gunfire. Traffic accidents and aircraft accidents also have claimed numerous lives. With the Patrol being a rather new police agency, this makes the per capita death rate even higher. The Title of Trooper was instituted in 1977, when women were admitted into the ranks and it is considered to be earned by completing and graduating from basic school. DMV Officers were absorbed into the NCSHP by a 2002 legislative change, with DMV enforcement section was previously a separate law enforcement agency. Troopers work alone in an assigned, take-home patrol car and often patrol desolate and isolated multi-county regions with no readily available back up. Training is harsh for recruit cadets to ensure they will be able to meet the rigors of working „the road“ alone throughout North Carolina. Troopers serve at locations designated by the patrol commander or his designee. They can be transferred at state expense to any location in the state at any time. Additionally, troopers may pay their transfer expenses and transfer to a vacancy anywhere in the state, if approved by the appropriate commands. Troopers who resign and later are accepted to return to the Patrol must complete the entire basic school again. Several troopers have done so two or even three times in recent history.

The State Highway Patrol shall be subject to such orders, rules and regulations as may be adopted by the Secretary of Public Safety, with the approval of the Governor, and shall regularly patrol the highways of the State and enforce all laws and regulations respecting travel and the use of vehicles upon the highways of the State and all laws for the protection of the highways of the State. To this end, the members of the Patrol are given the power and authority of peace officers for the service of any warrant or other process issuing from any of the courts of the State having criminal jurisdiction, and are likewise authorized to arrest without warrant any person who, in the presence of said officers, is engaged in the violation of any of the laws of the State regulating travel and the use of vehicles upon the highways, or of laws with respect to the protection of the highways, and they shall have jurisdiction anywhere within the State, irrespective of county lines. The State Highway Patrol shall enforce the provisions of G.S. 14-399.
The State Highway Patrol shall have full power and authority to perform such additional duties as peace officers as may from time to time be directed by the Governor, and such officers may at any time and without special authority, either upon their own motion or at the request of any sheriff or local police authority, arrest persons accused of highway robbery, bank robbery, murder, or other crimes of violence. The only criminal offenses troopers may not make a warrantless arrest for by statute are non-traffic misdemeanors and non-highway crimes that occur out of the trooper’s presence. The clause of the trooper’s powers to arrest for bank robbery was specifically inserted during the early 1930s, at the request of the federal government, so that state officers could assist the FBI in combating the rash of bank robberies during the gangster era of the Great Depression. The NC Highway Patrol was issued close to 100 Thompson .45 caliber sub-machine guns by the FBI during this period, but they were never issued or fired and remained locked in the patrol’s armory at the Training Center in Raleigh, until they were returned to the federal government in the 1980s.
The clause allowing for troopers to „have full power and authority to perform such additional duties as peace officers as may from time to time be directed by the Governor“ gives the patrol the ability at the governor’s orders to function as a de facto state police agency, though this clause has never been fully implemented. The NC Alcohol Law Enforcement Agency (ALE), a sister agency of the NC Highway Patrol, however, functions as a true state police agency.
Other famous ceremonies, crimes and incidents have resulted in massive trooper deployments to various locations statewide and even outside North Carolina. Troopers provide a large contingent at the ceremony inaugurating the NC Governor in Raleigh every 4 years and have worked civil protests at various times. One famous incident was in Warren County, when toxic waste was dumped at a waste site there in 1982. A mass force of troopers was deployed to suppress a bloody prison riot at Central Prison in Raleigh on April 17, 1968 in which 6 inmates died and 75 were injured. In the 1980s, troopers were deployed in contingents in excess of 500 to manhunts for suspects who murdered or shot troopers and law enforcement officers in separate high-profile incidents. Halifax County saw two manhunts on different occasions; one a prison escape from adjacent Virginia concluded in North Carolina, the other the murder of a trooper on a traffic stop on Interstate 95. Other high-profile modern manhunts were conducted involving over 500 troopers in McDowell, Haywood, Madison and Henderson Counties following murders or shootings of troopers in each case, with the suspects fleeing in rugged areas on foot for days. The 1979 murder by rifle fire of 2 Rutherford County sheriff’s deputies who answered a domestic disturbance call in Rutherford County near Rutherfordton also claimed the life of NC Trooper R. L. „Pete“ Peterson, who was also shot and killed by the suspect after a brief chase. Peterson was unaware of the murder of the deputies and tried to stop the suspect James W. Hutchins, thinking he was a speeder and not knowing he had just murdered 2 deputies. That incident also resulted in hundreds of troopers deploying to Rutherford County for a manhunt and was the largest one-day murder of peace officers in NC history. The tragedy inspired a motion picture „Rutherford County Line“ and also changed the way domestic disputes were handled by NC law enforcement officers. The suspect in that case, James W. Hutchins, an unemployed textile worker and former Air Force rifle marksman, was the first NC inmate executed when the death penalty was reinstated by the US Supreme Court in 1977. The Halifax County escape incident was shown on the Discovery Channel in 2009.
In 1985, then-NC Governor, Jim Martin mobilized a contingent of over 150 troopers to the western NC mountains in Graham County to assist 50 deployed state wildlife officers, in support of federal forest service officers at an 8-week long, illegal mass-gathering in the Nantahala National Forest involving the „Rainbow Family.“ The incident resulted in over 18,000 persons illegally gathered on federal lands. Hundreds of criminal incidents including rapes, kidnappings, blatant drug and alcohol violations, breaches of the peace, the presence of numerous fugitives, nudity and widespread dangerous moving traffic offenses prompted police intervention and massive media coverage locally, regionally and nationally to the otherwise quiet region. The incident culminated in a violent confrontation with federal and local officers by family members who illegally blocked a USFS road with a fallen log, denying officers access to patrol areas. The Graham County sheriff who had deputies assigned from 3 neighboring counties was still overwhelmed and called the Governor for emergency help. This resulted in a deployment of state troopers and state wildlife officers to assist federal and county officers in retaking control of the Slickrock Road USFS Recreation Area and making mass arrests. A Prison Department bus was deployed to handle the volume of arrested prisoners

, who filled local county jails in the western part of the state. Local Graham County residents had never seen so many troopers ever as hundreds of highway patrol cars and wildlife trucks raced through Robbinsville with lights and sirens en route to Slick Rock. The Rainbow people eventually largely left and officers arrested the final group that refused to leave. The 87 Rainbow gathering was the largest non-manhunt deployment of troopers in Western NC history.
In the early 1990s, a Highway Patrol helicopter assisted Gastonia police officers in a neighborhood shooting incident, in which the suspect exchanged gunfire with the helicopter. Over 100 troopers and a SHP helicopter from the Asheville airbase deployed to Avery County in 2003 for a standoff with a man charged with murdering an Avery County sheriff’s lieutenant and wounding his partner. Troopers work security and traffic control annually at the NC State Fair in Raleigh and at the Western State Fair in Asheville. They also direct traffic at major college football games and at the Charlotte Motor Speedway NASCAR races. A large contingent of troopers were also used as a presence to deter unrest at a special hearing at the Avery County Courthouse in Newland in 2000, when the Sheriff, who was convicted of corruption-related charges was dismissed from office by a superior court judge, resulting in anger by the sheriff’s supporters.
9-11 response: The entire sworn staff of the NC Highway Patrol was mobilized and alerted on September 11, 2001, following terror attacks in VA, NYC and PA. The patrol was later tasked with being alert to safeguard nuclear plants, military installations and critical infrastructure in North Carolina. NC Troopers were also been given the distinction to be selected by the US government to deploy to Washington DC and be deputized as special deputy US Marshals, to assist with security at Presidential inaugurations.
The Secretary of Public Safety shall direct the officers and members of the State Highway Patrol in the performance of such other duties as may be required for the enforcement of the motor vehicle laws of the State.
Members of the State Highway Patrol, in addition to the duties, power and authority herein before given, shall have the authority throughout the State of North Carolina of any police officer in respect to making arrests for any crimes committed in their presence and shall have authority to make arrests for any crime committed on any highway.
Regardless of territorial jurisdiction, any member of the State Highway Patrol who initiates an investigation of an accident or collision may not relinquish responsibility for completing the investigation, or for filing criminal charges as appropriate, without clear assurance that another law-enforcement officer or agency has fully undertaken responsibility, and in such cases he shall render reasonable assistance to the succeeding officer or agency if requested.
The NCSHP is the state’s ready-response force and can mobilize at least 800 troopers anywhere in the state within 6 hours. Troopers are trained to respond to strikes, disasters, mass protests, riots and other emergencies. Troopers carry an assortment of issued equipment in their vehicles at all times. Troopers all carry a Sig Sauer P226 .357 Sig semi-automatic sidearm, a .12 gauge shotgun and in certain cases, semi or fully automatic weapons. Troopers are currently in the process of transitioning to Smith & Wesson AR-15 rifles. Troopers also carry Oleoresin capsicum OC defensive spray, expandable baton and TASER Electronic Control Device as defensive weapons, which they are trained to use. Troopers are „tased“ at the basic school to carry the Taser and are sprayed with OC spray.
Troopers are issued individually assigned patrol vehicles which can be a motor cycle with trailer in addition to a patrol car, a patrol car only which may be marked and in some cases unmarked (no more than 17% of the SHP fleet can be unmarked) or SUV-type 4X4 vehicles, especially in mountain regions prone to bitter cold, ice and snow. Troopers‘ vehicles are routinely inspected along with equipment and troopers take pride in keeping their vehicles and equipment clean and functional. Each troop of the 8 headquarters complexes have a communications center (with certain outlying radio sub-centers in some areas) and patrol garages that solely care for and maintain trooper’s vehicles and radios. The used patrol vehicles are well known in the state to be cared for and well-maintained and are sought after by smaller law enforcement agencies for bid purchase in a second life as a local police or county patrol car.
The NC Highway Patrol, like other state and county law enforcement agencies, does not have territorial jurisdiction on Cherokee Indian tribal lands in western North Carolina. Because this land is exclusively under federal law enforcement and tribal police jurisdiction, troopers who are assigned to that area are commissioned as „special officers“ of the US Bureau of Indian Affairs, allowing them to assist tribal police and federal authorities as needed and to make arrests and issue citations in tribal or federal court. The Patrol also does not have jurisdiction on federal military installations in North Carolina except for concurrent jurisdiction on certain state highways that pass through Fort Bragg and on several inactive Marine Corps Airfields in the Eastern part of the State. The NCSHP has full police powers on the NC portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway, in all US Park Service and Wildlife Preserve lands and on all US Forest Service lands in North Carolina. Troopers often assist US Park and Forest Service law enforcement rangers in the performance of their duties.
The patrol’s statewide radio system was the first such system in the state and was first one way and then two-way. Today, troopers use little verbal communication by radio and instead use mobile data terminals (MDT’s) which include portable laptop computers which allows troopers to check NCIC national criminal records, to complete collision reports, issue citations and perform other work electronically which is transmitted to area headquarters, alleviating hand-written reports. The NCSHP radio system is also used by other state agencies except the NC Wildlife Enforcement Division, which has its own statewide radio system for wildlife officers and state park rangers. It is headquartered in Raleigh. Federal agencies such as the FBI, US Marshals and US Secret Service also use the NCSHP radio system.
Established in 1929, the NC State Highway Patrol’s mission is to reduce collisions and make the highways of North Carolina as safe as possible.
North Carolina, like many Southern states, was distrusted by the federal government from starting a „state police“ agency, due to concerns that the department would be used for political motives to intimidate blacks from voting in the late 1920s, at a time when lynchings and Ku Klux Klan activities were on the rise following the end of World War I. The vast majority of the 100 NC Sheriffs also did not want to lose political power to a state police agency. These issues were alleviated by establishment of a traffic enforcement agency to police the ever-expanding highways with the enforcement of motor vehicles laws primarily. The original members of the Highway Patrol were the command staff and they were sent to the Pennsylvania State Police Academy for training. Upon their graduation and return to North Carolina, these men established the first basic school at Camp Glenn, an abandoned World War I Army Camp in Morehead City where Carteret General Hospital is now located. Several extra recruits were brought to the original basic school and were sent home as alternates, in the event that original members quit or were fired. Most of these men were never recalled to duty after 8 weeks of training. Over the years, the agency obtained semi-state police powers with the authority of the Governor to implement it, but this has never been fully done by any NC Governor. Changes in the regulations by the general assembly were made in response to political appointees being names as commander. The changes ensured that the commander of the SHP must meet all trooper requirements, including completion of the grueling basic trooper training school, thus preventing unqualified political appointees from being named commander.
″In 1921, 150,558 motor vehicles were registered in North Carolina. By 1929, the number of registered vehicles increased to 503,590. As the number of vehicles increased, so did the number of people killed in traffic accidents: 690 deaths in 1929.
Traffic control was of such concern that in 1929 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the establishment of a State Highway Patrol. The new organization was given statutory responsibility to patrol the highways of the state, enforce the motor vehicle laws, and assist the motoring public.
The organization was designed as a division of the State Highway Commission. The Highway Commission initially sent ten men (later designated as a captain and nine lieutenants) to Pennsylvania to attend the training school of the Pennsylvania State Police. Their mission was to study law, first aid, light adjustments, vehicle operation, and related subjects for use in North Carolina’s first Patrol School.″
The SHP was transferred to the department of Revenue until in 1941 becoming part of the newly formed NC Department of Transportation, but was again transferred to the newly formed Department of Crime Control and Public Safety in the mid-1970s. This agency more recently became the Department of Public Safety, which expanded to absorb other agencies including the Department of Motor Vehicles, State Bureau of Investigation and other state departments dealing with statewide law enforcement.
An office was established in Raleigh to serve as state headquarters, and a district office was established in each of the nine state DOT highway districts. A lieutenant and three patrolmen were assigned to each district. All patrolmen were issued Harley Davidson motorcycles and the lieutenants drove Model A Ford Coupes. The Patrol commander was issued a Buick automobile. The new patrolmen and command staff made a cross-state introductory riding tour on July 1, 1929 to show off the new agency’s personnel to the state. On the following day, the first officer death occurred when Patrolman George I. Thompson who was driving his motorcycle in the procession was killed in a traffic collision in Anson County (see below for line-of-duty deaths)
In 1931, the General Assembly increased the Patrol to 67 members and reduced the number of lieutenants to six. The Patrol was increased in size in 1933 to 121 members. Patrolmen were relieved of gasoline inspection duties and given responsibilities for issuing driver licenses and enforcing the new driver license laws.
Without vehicular radios, patrolmen were issued 2 rolls of dimes each week so they could phone in for calls on a regular basis. Though the legislature authorized the patrol to establish a one-way statewide radio system in 1937, it had many areas of no reception (dead spots), especially in the far eastern coastal areas and more so in the rugged western mountains. The system was flawed in that patrolmen could not answer back. Poor reception made it hard for patrolmen to tell which patrolman was being called, even when they could hear the radio. If dispatchers could not locate a patrolman, they would call certain selected stores, gas stations and post offices in the particular patrolman’s district and ask the employees or personnel to watch for and to flag the patrolman down the next time he was seen passing by and to tell him to call in. If patrolmen arrested a violator, they would have minor offenders follow them to the justice of the peace office or courthouse. If they physically arrested a violator, the patrolmen would hide their motorcycle in brush and drive an offender to the local jail in his own vehicle.
All patrolmen were assigned individual vehicles in 1937, and over the passing decades, numerous executive, legislative, and administrative changes have occurred since the Patrol’s creation. The duties and responsibilities have varied, different ranks have been designated, and the organizational structure has been modified to improve efficiency, to address the needs of the state and in response to changing technology. Examples included an expanded air wing after World War II, implementation of two-way radios, use of helicopters, abolition of fixed-wing aircraft, use of breath testing devices, K-9 dog units, body armor, pursuit vehicles such as Mustangs and Camaros, speed measurement instruments such as the „whammy“ in the 1950s, later RADAR, VASCAR and LIDAR and more recently computerized dispatch through in-vehicle terminals.
In World War II, a number of Patrolmen who had served in World War I were recalled to active duty and others enlisted, taking leave of absence from the SHP. Many others had served in the Guard or Reserves. Patrolmen assisted the military by being alert for saboteurs and spies by reporting suspicious activity to the FBI. Deserters and AWOLS were also arrested. By 1946, all personnel on military status had returned to duty with the Patrol.
As of 2008, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol had an authorized strength of over 1,800 sworn law enforcement officers.
In 2008, the NC State Highway Patrol arrested 23,199 people for Driving While Impaired, seized $10 million worth of drugs, and investigated 1,081 fatalities on North Carolina highways. The Motor Carrier unit fined thousands of truck drivers for various violations.
The NC Highway Patrol is a paramilitary organization, with a rank structure similar to that of the armed forces. Rank denotes grade while title denotes special duties. Not all special duties include a title. Title is reserved for more permanent, semi-permanent or time period assigned assignments or skills, while some duties and assignments are adjunct to primary duty and may be part of the trooper’s duties for much of or all of his-her career.
The ranks of Captain and above are appointed by the Governor and exempt from the jurisdiction of the State Personnel Commission. Commissioned officers of the patrol with ranks of lieutenant or higher have gold badges, while first sergeants and below have silver badges. All titles of rank are now reflected on the trooper’s badge.
Vehicles and agency colors: By NC Statute, all NCSHP patrol vehicles must be black and silver to be considered marked, though up to 17% of patrol vehicles can be unmarked. Many patrol vehicles have full markings but no light bar on the roof. The lack of a roof light bar increases fuel conservation by improving aerodynamics and makes the vehicle less visible on patrol, allowing troopers to surveil violators while being less detected. This also prevents ice and snow from clumping on the roof in the cold and often-snowy mountain districts in winter, keeping patrol vehicles from becoming top-heavy (roll-over threat) and also improves fuel efficiency. These vehicles are referred to as a „slick top“ for better use in traffic enforcement. The „slick top“ patrol vehicle will have lights inside the vehicle and front grill similar to the unmarked vehicles. The vehicle color scheme is historically similar to the uniform of gray and black, a historic reference to the gray of the Confederacy and the black of the damage done to the state by the fires of the Civil War.
NCSHP Officers were originally titled as „Patrolmen“ and were not called „Troopers“ until 1977, when females were accepted to patrol School.
Of the uniform items, only the trooper’s hat badge, a diamond-shaped badge and dress coat collar insignia (NC state seals) have remained unchanged since 1929, though the overall design of the badge is similar to its original design from 1929. Troopers originally wore „kepi“ style caps and later pith helmets in the 1950s. They went to campaign-style „smoky bear“ hats in the late 1950s and this headgear is a symbolic source of pride to all troopers. Troopers are noted for wearing long-sleeve shirts and clip-on ties (for safety) year-round. On several occasions since the 1970s, troopers have been given the option of voting to be able to wear short sleeve shirts in warm weather months and to have mustaches. These ideas were rejected by rank-and-file troopers overwhelmingly.
Until 2002, there were two state-run law enforcement entities patrolling the highways of North Carolina; the Highway Patrol and the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles Enforcement Section. This branch of the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles, which itself is a division of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, was primarily responsible for ticketing and weighing commercial traffic, and enforcing federal motor carrier laws on truckers. DMV Enforcement was structured similar to the Highway Patrol, with districts and even similar model patrol cars (DMV Enforcement cars were light blue and white with „State Owned“ license plates, as opposed to the gray and black Highway Patrol colors and distinct Highway Patrol license plate). This division, also, ran the state’s interstate weigh stations and oversaw the plainclothes „inspectors“, special agents who conducted inspection, license, theft and title fraud investigations concerning vehicles. After several attacks on citizens at NC rest areas, DMV enforcement was assigned to patrol state rest areas. Over the years some tension and animosity developed between the two agencies because of their overlapping authority, since both agencies, ultimately, had the power to pull over all vehicular traffic in the state and write citations. Several high speed chases occurred and in two instances, DMV officers were killed In another incident, a DMV officer was shot at in a chase in Davidson County. In time, DMV began running RADAR to control truck speed and to assist in commercial vehicle accident investigation, which further frustrated troopers. After several scandals and a multitude of state and federal corruption violations rocked the DMV and its Enforcement Division, the state finally decided to restructure the Division of Motor Vehicles and concluded that the Highway Patrol and DMV Enforcement were in fact too similar and more money could be saved by having one agency performing all highway law enforcement duties. DMV Enforcement was merged into the Highway Patrol, and is run as the Motor Carrier Enforcement Section of the Highway Patrol.
Former DMV supervisory and command personnel such as sergeants, lieutenants, captains and majors kept their rank when they merged with the NCSHP, though they were originally prohibited from commanding troopers. Also, a number of DMV officers in various positions had been fired previously as troopers and were resented upon returning to the SHP, with some troopers commonly referring to them disparagingly as „trooper-rejects“. They were issued badges and vehicle markings different from troopers. After all of these officers completed a special trooper conversion training course, they were fully integrated into the NCSHP chain-of-command and rank structure and given the title of trooper. That move, which included a special DMV officer-only basic course was referred to by irate troopers as the „instant trooper“ or „shake and bake“ basic school, which was not nearly as long or strenuous as normal basic schools had been. All of these factors combined to cause additional resentment with basic school graduate troopers. That merger caused some troopers to lose placement to DMV officers for seniority as troopers and for promotional purposes and hence, some tension still lingers somewhat to date. Overall, the integration process has largely transitioned completely.
Though the NC Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) under the NC Department of Transportation (DOT) transferred the weight and commercial vehicle law enforcement uniformed officer personnel to the Highway Patrol in 2003, the DMV Inspectors were retained under DMV in the License and Theft Bureau. These officers „Inspectors“ are tasked with investigation of motor vehicle title fraud and investigation, motor Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) alteration, motor vehicle safety inspection sticker fraud, license and theft investigations, drivers license fraud and related identity theft, along with other similar crimes. These officers have general police powers related to their duties and are empowered to enforce traffic laws throughout the state. They have the same territorial jurisdiction as troopers. All NC weight scale stations are now staffed by uniformed NC troopers.
As of November 2009, the NC Center for Missing Persons merged into the North Carolina State Highway Patrol. The N.C. Center for Missing Persons serves as the clearinghouse for information regarding missing children and adults and is charged with issuing AMBER Alerts and Silver Alerts. Each year, more than 10,000 people are reported missing to the N.C. Center for Missing Persons. The problems of non-custodial abductions, runaways, stranger abductions, and missing adults transcend socio-economic, racial and ethnic boundaries. Reasons for these disappearances may include problems at home, health or mental issues, snags with the law, or a taste for adventure. Most eventually return or are found by law enforcement officers and do not involve foul play. Many adults who disappear do not want to be found, or they may have other problems such as memory loss, mental illness, or a history of drug use or alcoholism. Since its creation in 1985, the Center has worked with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to locate missing persons and reunite them with their families. North Carolina is one of the few states with a clearinghouse for missing adults as well as children.
Highway Patrol Commander: Colonel William J. Grey
The Patrol’s aviation unit was expanded in the 1990s with the acquisition of several surplus Army OH-58 (civilian Bell Ranger) helicopters. The patrol has aviation bases throughout the state and is helicopters with pilots and copilot crews are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist in pursuits, rescues, manhunts, missing persons and other special details such as Presidential visits, counter-terrorism, surveillance and emergency response.
The NC Highway Patrol is broken down in geographical areas known as troops. These troops are lettered A through H, The troops are broken down further by district. These districts are responsible for anywhere from 1-5 counties depending on geographic size.
The NC Highway Patrol Basic School for cadets with no prior law enforcement training is twenty-nine weeks long and is fully accredited by the NC criminal justice standards commission. Military veterans can receive VA benefits while attending the basic school. All trooper recruits must pass the NC state basic law enforcement exam to graduate. The basic school is located at 3318 Garner Road in Raleigh and cadets live in the paramilitary, residential setting for the duration of the course, which includes rigorous physical training (PT) each morning, drill and ceremonies, classroom courses, range training and practical courses. Cadets are subject to detailed uniform, dorm and room inspections at any time or by scheduled inspections. Cadets wear a uniform different from troopers and a military-style „overseas“ cap while they are cadets. They only wear trooper uniforms for their graduation week, in the last week of training, which includes a graduation banquet the night before the graduation and a swearing-in ceremony at graduation. Cadets who are already trained as peace officers may be eligible to attend an abbreviated portion of the course, which caused some resentment with veteran troopers when the program began. During this intensive training the cadet class will typically lose 40% of its members. It is in this live-in environment where the cadets learn about state and federal laws, firearms marksmanship, and high speed driving. Early every morning the cadets rise, rain or shine, for physical fitness training before starting a full day of classroom instruction. The cadets will form a tight-knit bond and learn to never leave one another „in the ditch witch“.
Following these months of effort, the cadets are sworn in as Probationary Troopers and are assigned to their respective troops and districts. Once in their assigned district, they will participate in on-the-job training for an additional twelve weeks with an experienced trooper who is trained as a Field Training Officer toms shoes uk, or FTO.
Special facilities: The Basic School is located at 3318 Garner Road in East Raleigh, near the Garner city limits, on the site of the old Governor Morehead School for the blind. The site also houses the NC SBI headquarters. This facility is where recruits attend the 6-month basic school, as do troopers for annual in-service training for one week each year to receive updates on agency procedures and legal changes, as well as tactical training updates. Firearms training and qualification is provided at local district ranges biannually. The Patrol also operates a pursuit driving training track facility nearby in Raleigh, to simulate interstate and highway driving and pursuit driving, at high and low speed. This facility replaced a former World War II Army Airfield near Maxton, used by the patrol from the 1950s, until the early 1990s. Other law enforcement agencies also train at this facility on a limited basis. All NC peace officers must complete a precision driver training course as part of basic training but only troopers must attend and satisfactorily finish pursuit driver training in addition to the precision driver training in order to graduate. Troopers are given extensive high-speed pursuit driving training on a dry and wet skid pad and are taught evasive operation, precision driving, high-speed operation and other specialized driver training that far exceeds the mandates of state law enforcement training standards. Executive protection troopers on the governor’s security detail also conduct protective driver training, to simulate protecting VIP’s from vehicle attack or assault while mobile or in traffic at the pursuit driver training facility.
In addition to the Training Center located at the former Governor Morehead School for blind children which is shared with the State Bureau of Investigation on Garner Road in Raleigh, the NCSHP has also used the Main NC Justice Academy (NCJA) Campus at Salemburg in Sampson County and the NCJA Western Campus at Edneyville in Henderson County as training schools for basic cadet classes when the main campus is full. In-service training is also conducted at these locations for troopers in the field annually, to update personnel on agency and legal changes, as well as to meet state-mandated training requirements.
Prior to the establishment of the current trooper basic school in Raleigh in 1977

, the NCSHP used the Institute of Government (IOG) campus at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill for a basic school, which also trained NC Wildlife Enforcement Officers for many years. Veteran troopers reminisce of wanting to talk to UNC female students, but living in fear of dismissal for being caught doing so during training. Other locations for early basic training schools were Hendersonville, Henderson County and originally in Morehead City at the site of a former World War I Army facility, Camp Glenn, in the Mandy Farms area of the city in Carteret County. The current training center was taken over by the Highway Patrol in the 1970s with half of the campus operated by the NC State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) for administrative officer.
Polygrapher: Specially trained and certified troopers conduct polygraph exams for pre-employment screening of applicants, employees and in certain internal investigations.
Accident reconstructionist: Specially trained investigators handle major or complex traffic collision investigations such as major damage, serious or multiple injury or any fatality. Reconstruction is a phase beyond reporting and investigation, which general troopers handle.
Law enforcement dog handler: Specially trained troopers handle SHP drug detection dogs.
Internal affairs investigator: Specially trained sergeants and lieutenants conduct investigations into misconduct (serious violations of SHP policies and minor criminal offenses) involving SHP sworn personnel. Minor allegations are investigated by immediate supervisors, while more serious and firing offenses are handled by internal affairs. Trooper-involved shootings and serious internal criminal matters are generally investigated by agents of the NC State Bureau of Investigation (SBI). By policy, all SHP troopers and employees are required to take and report any complaint made to them and to provide their name and registry number to anyone when asked.
Instructors: All NCSHP instructors must complete the NC Criminal Justice Training and Standards Commission „Instructor“ course of 80-hours to be a general instructor or any specialized instructor. These can include the following: Instructor rating: This person trains troopers and other personnel on basic courses at in-service annual training or for cadets in basic school.
PT Instructor-specially-trained, state-certified trooper instructors train cadets at the basic school for fitness and general daily training life.
Firearms Instructor-Specially-trained, state-certified trooper instructors, proficient with firearms, train cadets and sworn personnel in initial and semi-annual firearms qualification training and retrains personnel on new firearms as they are adopted.
Time-distance instructor: Trains and recertifies troopers in use of speed measurement instrument (SMI) instruments (RADAR, LIDAR and VASCAR to state standards.
Driving instructor-Specially-trained, state-certified trooper instructors, proficient in vehicle operation, train cadets and other agency personnel in pursuit driving on the NCSHP’s pursuit driving track in Raleigh.
Pilot-After the NC General Assembly abolished the statutory prohibition on aerial enforcement of speed laws in the 1990s, the patrol greatly expanded its aviation arm. Pilots of the NCSHP are FAA-certified Commercial/Instrument rated helicopter pilots and fly the Patrol’s Bell 206 JetRanger, Bell OH-58A+ and Bell 407 helicopters from the various aviation centers throughout the state. The aircraft are used in pursuits, manhunts, rescues, training and other critical missions. Pilots respond to requests for aviation based mutual aid from Federal, State and Local public safety officials throughout North Carolina. Pilots are highly screened medically and for aviation aptitude. They train constantly to maintain their instrument ratings. Therefore, pilots are generally not expected to perform vehicular traffic enforcement and drive unmarked vehicles, except in serious cases. Pilots have a wing insignia on their uniform and wear flight suits for flying duty. The patrol made headlines in 1994, when a patrol helicopter assisted Gaston county and Gastonia city police officers in a fierce gunbattle in a suburban housing area. The helicopter was hit several times and a trooper copilot returned fire with a rifle from the helicopter. The suspect, a murder suspect committed suicide in that incident. The aviation unit is a separate command within the NC SHP, led by a lieutenant pilot

Motorcycle: In the 1990s, the SHP reinstituted the motorcycle program, which was disbanded for safety reasons in the 1930s. Harley-Davidson and BMW police cycles have been the models used. Specially-trained troopers patrol on motorcycles and are also issued a patrol car and trailer. They must complete US Park Police motorcycle officer training. This program has a long waiting list and is extremely competitive to enter. Motorcycles are generally assigned to urban areas, though they can deploy anywhere as needed for funerals, ceremonies or special events statewide. „Bike“ troopers are issued a marked car with a trailer hitch, a trailer and motorcycle. Motorcycle officers wear a wheel and wing insignia on their uniform, high boots and helmet while on motorcycle duty. These select troopers attend the US Park Police motorcycle training unit’s basic school to be on the „bike“ units.
Administrative or training center assignments: These troopers and other ranking personnel such as the command staff are assigned to the SHP state headquarters at the DCCPS building, the Archdale Building, located in downtown Raleigh, at the training center or at other non-enforcement duty assignments. They often are issued unmarked patrol cars and are not expected to take enforcement action except in serious situations.
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s): Certain troopers are additionally trained as NC-certified EMT-Basic level (EMT-B). They wear a star of life insignia of their sleeve and have a star of life insignia on the back windshield of their patrol cars. EMT troopers are equipped with a trauma bag and automated external defibrilator (AED). Shortly after being issued these devices, a trooper was credited with saving the life of a heart attack victim at the Charlotte races in the early 2000s, a wealthy businessman, who gave the SHP grant money to expand the program.
Executive Security: A select and specially-trained detail of Troopers are assigned to protect the Governor’s Mansion in Raleigh and to drive and protect the Governor and his/her immediate family, the Lieutenant Governor and his/her immediate family and other designated VIP’s. These Troopers work with other state Executive Security Details and the SBI, to assist when out of state Governors or Dignitaries visit North Carolina. These troopers also augment the US Secret Service during Presidential or VIP visits to North Carolina. They receive special training from the US Secret Service.
The NCSHP previously maintained a sniper program through the early to mid-1980s.
The SHP also has an honor guard team as a volunteer additional duty with a horse caisson team to carry caskets for fallen members, to receive a formal burial. These selected honor guard troopers wear special dress uniforms and white gloves. This team was trained by the US Army’s „Old Guard“ honor guard at Ft. Myer Va.
Drivers licensing: NC Troopers originally gave driver license tests in the early years of the patrol. After World War II, this task is now done by DMV license examiners, though they often share facilities with the NCSHP.
The NC State Highway Patrol has a fallen trooper memorial monument at the training center, with the names of all troopers, patrolmen and enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty since the agency was chartered on July 1, 1929. The first Trooper to die in the line of duty was killed on the first day the agency was chartered in a collision during a statewide ride to introduce the new officers to the state. The first trooper murdered in the line of duty was shot in 1937. As of March, 2013, since July 1, 1929, 61 NC Highway Patrol members; patrolmen, troopers and enforcement officers have died in the line of duty: 4 by aircraft accident, 13 by automobile accident, 1 by drowning, 19 by gunfire, 1 by heart attack, 5 by motorcycle accident, 2 struck by vehicle, 12 in pursuits and 4 by vehicular assault.

; French: Groupe d’action municipale) was a municipal political party that existed from 1978 to 1985 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The Municipal Action Group was formed in 1978 as a breakaway from the progressive Montreal Citizens‘ Movement (MCM), which had become the official opposition on Montreal city council in the 1974 municipal election. The MCM was initially supported by a heterogeneous community that included trade unionists, Parti Québécois and New Democratic Party supporters, and a variety of social activists. The party later became divided between its radical and centrist members, with some of the centrists forming the nucleus of the MAG. Both parties were regarded as being to the left of mayor Jean Drapeau’s Civic Party, which dominated city politics in this period.
The MAG’s founding members included two sitting councillors who had been elected for the MCM — Nick Auf der Maur and Bob Keaton — and Liberal Member of Parliament (MP) Serge Joyal, who was nominated as the party’s candidate for mayor.
Both the MAG and the MCM ran full candidate slates in the 1978 municipal election. The parties initially pledged to run respectful campaigns against one another

, and their mayoral candidates speculated about forming a coalition government after the election. By the end of the campaign, however, relations between the parties had broken down into animosity. On election day, the split in the progressive vote resulted in a landslide victory for the Civic Party; Joyal finished a distant second in the mayoral contest, while Auf der Maur was the MAG’s only candidate elected to council. The MCM also suffered a serious defeat; Michael Fainstat was the party’s only successful candidate for council.
Joyal initially pledged to remain with the MAG but ultimately returned to federal politics. The MAG and MCM remained rivals on council, and in September 1982 Fainstat sued Auf der Maur for unfairly branding him as a communist

. The two parties nonetheless held coalition talks prior to the 1982 municipal election, but these ended in failure.
The Montreal Action Group again ran a full slate of candidates in the 1982 election. Drapeau was re-elected to another term in office and MCM candidate Jean Doré finished a credible second in the mayoral contest, while the MAG’s Henri-Paul Vignola placed third with just over 15 per cent of the vote. The MCM won sixteen seats on council, re-establishing themselves as the official opposition. Three MAG candidates were elected: Auf der Maur, Sofoklis Rasoulis, and Sam Berliner.
The MAG suffered a decline in party contributions after the 1982 election, and in 1984 the party was $373,777 in debt. On December 13, 1985, Sofoklis Rasoulis indicated that he would resign from the party to start a new political grouping called the Montreal Liberal Municipal Party. Auf der Maur effectively dissolved the party five days later, announcing that it would discontinue operations and that its members would sit as independents. He was quoted as saying, „We don’t see the purpose of continuing the MAG. Rather than drag it out (until next year’s election), we’re putting it out of its misery now.“

Hillsborough (film)

Hillsborough is a made-for-TV drama film written by Jimmy McGovern and starring Christopher Eccleston and Ricky Tomlinson. Set between 1989 and 1991, the film tells the story of the Hillsborough Disaster, which saw 96 football supporters lose their lives at Hillsborough in Sheffield.
The drama was produced by Granada Television and aired for the first time on 5 December 1996. It was directed by Charles McDougall and produced by Nicola Schindler.
The drama was produced after the death of the final victim, Tony Bland, who died in March 1993 after being in a coma for nearly four years, but the time setting of the film concluded two years before Bland’s death, when the death toll still stood at 95

In April 1989, Liverpool and Nottingham Forest met in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. The match was played at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield but was abandoned shortly after the match had started when it became clear that the fans packed in to the Leppings Lane end of the ground were being crushed against fencing. 94 fans died that day, with a 95th victim dying a few days later

The drama starred Eccleston as Trevor Hicks, whose story formed the focus of the script. Hicks lost both of his daughters (19-year-old Sarah and 15-year-old Victoria) in the Hillsborough disaster, and went on to campaign for safer stadiums, as well as helping form the Hillsborough Families Support Group. The trauma of Hillsborough contributed to the collapse of his marriage to wife Jennifer during 1990. Other families featured were those of Ian Glover (20) and Adam Spearritt (14). Tomlinson was another notable actor to appear in the film, portraying the father of Ian Glover

, while Mark Womack played the part of Adam Spearritt’s father Eddie. The story starts as the events unfold and ends in the spring of 1991, some two years after the tragedy, when the inquest recorded a verdict of accidental death on the 95 victims (Tony Bland was still alive at the time), much to the outrage of the families of the victims.
The film was generally well received by the public and television critics. The Independent Television Commission praised Granada for the drama in its annual programme review

, describing it as ‚arguably the most powerful drama on the screen in 1996‘. It won the BAFTA Television Award in 1997 for Best Single Drama, Best Editing and Best Sound. In 2000, the British Film Industry placed Hillsborough at number 54 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes. The film has been screened on three further occasions in the United Kingdom: in 1998 and on the 20th anniversary of the disaster in 2009. Also on 15 September 2012 (shown 30 September in southern regions of the UK) after the report by the Hillsborough independent panel was published.
Five months after the twentieth anniversary of the tragedy, on 7 September 2009, the Hillsborough docu-drama was released on DVD.

, hatte Johannes Poigenfürst bereits während der Tage der Rumänischen Revolution von 1989. Ende Dezember 1989 traf er mit einem Hilfstransport mit Ärzten, Medikamenten und medizinisch-technischen Geräten in Timișoara ein.
In die orthopädische Klinik am Bulevardul Mihai Viteazul in Timișoara waren am 26. Dezember 76 Personen mit schweren Schussverletzungen eingeliefert worden. Die rumänischen und die österreichischen Ärzte operierten einige Tage gemeinsam; die schwierigen Fälle wurden nach Wien gebracht, wo die technische Ausstattung und die Rehabilitationsmöglichkeiten besser waren. Zurückgekehrt nach Wien startete Johannes Poigenfürst eine großangelegte Kampagne zum Sammeln von Spendengeldern für den Bau einer Unfallklinik in Timișoara nach neuesten EU-Standards. Zu diesem Zweck gründete er die Stiftung Casa Austria und brachte durch erfolgreiches Fund-Raising 2,54 Millionen Euro ein. Die Osthilfe der Caritas steuerte noch einmal so viel bei

. Am 16. Mai 2003 wurde das Unfallkrankenhaus Casa Austria feierlich eröffnet.
Die Unfallklinik Casa Austria verfügt über 60 Betten und behandelt jährlich 1.500 Patienten stationär. Die laufenden Kosten werden von der rumänischen Krankenkasse getragen, die Kosten für die medizinischen Wirkstoffe werden über ein von der Caritas Timișoara verwaltetes Spendenkonto beglichen. Mittlerweile ist das Casa Austria in Timișoara nicht nur ein hoch modernes Krankenhaus, sondern auch ein Ausbildungsort und ein Fortbildungszentrum für Ärzte und Pflegepersonal. Das Casa Austria brachte ein völlig neues Behandlungskonzept nach Rumänien, das Poigenfürst als Chef des Böhler Unfallkrankenhauses in Wien entworfen hatte. Das Kernprinzip besteht darin, nicht der Schwerstverletzte wird zum Arzt in die einzelnen Abteilungen gebracht, sondern vor Ort betreut a priori ein multidisziplinäres Experten-Team.
Das Krankenhaus Casa Austria hat drei Abteilungen:
Kreisklinikum für Notfallmedizin Timișoara • Universitätsklinik für Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe Bega • Klinik für Psychyiatrie • Unfallkrankenhaus Casa Austria • Klinik für Orthopädie und Traumatologie • Poliklinik für Sportmedizin • Studentenambulatorium
