Milwaukee police are still searching for three armed men who broke into a south side home with a woman and her son inside during a terrifying encounter that was captured by private security cameras. Three men armed with guns broke into a home in the 3000 block of S. 33rd St. about 10:20 p.m. Saturday and stole electronics, Milwaukee police said. The men fled the scene and authorities are continuing to look for them, police said Thursday.
The Milwaukee Police Department has a backlog of open records requests and internal investigations after the previous chief left the agency "in shambles on almost every level," according to the chairman of the city's Fire and Police Commission. Steven DeVougas, chairman of the civilian oversight board, said Interim Police Alfonso Morales has uncovered backlogs, raised questions about how grant money was used and identified other possible problems in first his few weeks on the job.
The City of Milwaukee has sued another landlord, accusing this one of turning a blind eye to drug dealing at two of her properties on the south side. Leticia Gomez owns at least 28 properties in the city, but the lawsuit focuses on two: 2478 and 2479 S. 5th Place. The complaint was filed last week in Milwaukee County Circuit Court after police searched those houses in February.
I asked Interim Chief Morales, who has strong support from the MPA (last night at the FPC, the union advocated he get at least a 2 yr term), about this proposal. He said he is "indifferent" to it: "The unions are looking at it. There's positives and there's negatives to it."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
