May 15 - nekkid man shot and k!lled by cops, "being nekkid does not remove a threat"

The man Richmond police shot and k!lled along Interstate 95 during Monday night's commute was a high school science teacher who had graduated with honors from Virginia Commonwealth University.

The Richmond Police Department has identified Marcus-David L. Peters, 24, of the 6700 block of Dartmouth Avenue in Henrico County, as the man who they said charged one of its officers after hitting three cars, leading police on a short pursuit and dancing and rolling nekkid on the interstate.

"That was not my son," Barbara Peters, his mother, said. "This is just so out-of-character. Something went terribly wrong."

Shortly after 5:30 p.m., an RPD officer saw Peters driving a sedan that struck another vehicle at the intersection of West Franklin and North Belvidere streets, police said Tuesday. He continued driving and the officer followed him north and onto the I-95/64 ramp at Chamberlayne Avenue.

Peters lost control of his vehicle after striking two other vehicles on the ramp, police said. He emerged nekkid from the disabled vehicle and ran into the northbound lanes of I-95/64. Witnesses said they saw him dancing and rolling around on the interstate before running back to the on-ramp.

Police said Peters then charged the Richmond officer, who deployed his Taser in an effort to disable Peters. The Taser was ineffective, police said, so the officer fired his service weapon, striking Peters, who was unarmed.

Peters was transported to a hospital where he died shortly after midnight.

The 24-year-old grew up in Middles3x County, the third-youngest of 12 children. He graduated summa c*m laude from Middles3x High School in 2011, Barbara Peters confirmed Tuesday.

His high school class selected him as a student speaker at graduation, which was covered by the local Southside Sentinel. In his commencement address, Peters appeared optimistic and said he was "excited for our future."

"Each and every one of you has something special to offer the world," he said, according to the paper. "You have your own unique gift. We are all a.ssets to society."

He went on: "The trying times of life will only make us strong individuals. Nothing in this life that has value is going to come easy."

His family called the speech moving and caused "the gymnasium to erupt in a round of applause."

Peters went on to attend VCU, graduating in 2016 with a biology degree and c*m laude honors; he also minored in Spanish, psychology and chemistry. While at VCU, he attended the school's Honors College, served as a resident's a.ssistant and volunteered in doctor's offices, the family said.

"His pursuit for a career as a trauma surgeon would unknowingly take a detour as he discovered his passion for education," the family said in a statement.

He taught at Ess3x High School, according to his family. The school's website lists "Marcus Peters" among its science teachers. The family said he also taught a "life skills" class; school officials could not be reached Tuesday.

"The hopes for these additional lessons were to help students develop fundamental skills for overall success," Peters' family said. "He would often say, 'The students just need to know that someone cares about them and needs a role model to look up to.' He tried his very best to do just that."

His family said "his personality and big grin was so contagious. It was almost impossible to not befriend him."

Chief Alfred Durham spoke with the family Tuesday to offer his condolences.

"We are all deeply affected by what happened here – by the loss of life," Durham said in a statement. "Our officers do not take the use of deadly force lightly. I think it’s important to remember that being nekkid does not remove a threat. So far, the eyewitness accounts we’ve heard have been consistent: our officer tried using verbal commands, then used non-lethal force first by deploying his Taser before using his service weapon."

The department refused to answer additional questions about the incident citing the ongoing investigation.

RPD detectives are asking eyewitnesses to contact them and share their accounts and any photographs or videos they may have taken.

The officer who shot Peters had 10 years of service with the department. He has not been identified and was placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure while the department’s Force Investigation Team conducts its investigation. The officer’s name will be released once a risk a.ssessment has been completed, according to police.

Detectives will interview the officer and any other eyewitnesses that can be located. They will review the officer’s body-worn-camera video and any other video or photographs that can be located. Such images can be submitted to the RPD using the Crime Stoppers P-3 app, which has a category labeled "95 Incident" for this investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Major Crimes Detective R. Wigfall at (804) 646-6769 or contact Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or at visit this link www.7801000.com. The P3 Tips Crime Stoppers app for smart phones may also be used to submit still photographs or videos. All three Crime Stoppers methods of contact are anonymous.

its because they go steps to their action
1. if the person is empty handed= 1 step higher/taser
2. if a knife - 1 step higher is use of gun
3. if they cant subdue person with taser - 1 step above would go also

that is the way they work. always makes you wonder thou y not just gang tackle him/her and cuff em up

Shooting specific body parts isn't as easy as you think, when an object is moving.

Based on the story, I wonder if a firearm was the only option used, or if they tried a taser and pepper spray, hell even a bean bag shotgun/rifle.

If the cop went straight for a firearm in this situation shows clear lack of training, or willingness to take a human life at an "easily explained" opportunity.

Whoever sold him that sh*t needs prison time. Because weed, coke, crack, meth and heroin doesn't have you doing that sh*t unless its laced with pcp or some sh*t.

Because lawsuits. People were paralysed and handicapped and sued the police for millions of dollars.

n*gga. The shooting range don't even have knee shot options to practice on. Its all center mass or head.

Plus. You think the cop was worrying about saving the city a buck or 2 and just opt out for the k!ll shot in this situation that was in broad daylight with 100s of onlookers.

Da phuck.
