Raymond Peterson was one of the most notorious officers in the STRESS unit in the early 1970s. According to the Detroit Free Press, by 1973, Peterson had been involved in eight fatal police shootings. All the shootings were of black men. Raymond eventually earned the nickname Mr. STRESS. He was charged with second degree murder after crime lab technician Mary Jarrett Jackson discovered evidence that he had planted a knife on a shooting victim.

Raymond appears in the episode “Stop the Robberies, Enjoy Safe Streets.”

We had the bad guys running scared. Which is just where the fuck we wanted them.
