Riverside County will pay $1.9 million to settle a lawsuit from the family of an unarmed Coachella man who was fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy on Christmas morning three years ago. Omar Rodriguez, 35, was shot by Deputy Michelle Rodriguez, who told investigators she was “really scared” of the suspect because he was acting erraticly and approached her aggressively inside the Bella Canto neighborhood.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will not appeal a court decision requiring the agency to rehire a former Palm Desert deputy who was fired in 2015 after he did not help a sickly man who was too weak to walk back to his apartment. Sheriff’s department leaders wanted to appeal the ruling and fight to keep Mark Franks off the force, said attorney Anthony Snodgrass, but decided the appeal was too much a longshot to pursue.
A Palm Desert woman has been charged with murder this week for a car crash that killed her passenger in October 2016. Shelley Ann Bunn, 65, crashed her sedan into the back of a trailer in Sunrise Country Club shortly after midnight on Oct. 13, 2016, according to a declaration by a Riverside County Sheriff's deputy. She and a passenger, John Boyd, both suffered broken bones in the crash. Boyd died at Desert Regional Medical Center 10 days later.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
