Around 50 people rallied in front of the Los Angeles Police Department's Hollenbeck Division Saturday morning to protest a shooting that killed a 22-year-old man. "We demand justice for Christian," shouted the large crowd. The crowd was calling for justice for Christian Escobedo, who officers shot and killed Jan. 14th while responding to a call in Montecito Heights.
When Brandon Dufault came home from his shift at Home Depot on Oct. 12, he didn't expect to come face-to-face with a shooter. "It's almost like being in a scary movie, where you see a picture of somebody and you can see the face, but everything else is blacked out," he told NBC4. Brandon is one of only two survivors in a shooting rampage that left two others dead in Aliso Viejo last fall. He was showering when he heard shots fired in his home. Then, the gunman came for him.
Some Southern California residents are not impressed with Attorney General Jeff Session’s threat to end the policy that let legal marijuana flourish just days after sales began in California. Sessions announced on Thursday that he intends to vanquish an Obama-era policy that shields state-legalized marijuana from federal prosecution. Session’s movement now leaves the fate of recreational pot in the hands of the U.S. Attorneys across the nation.

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".
