Georgia Tech police officers were proud of their department's safety record. "No GTPD officer has ever been fired upon, nor has any officer ever had to fire upon anyone," a department investigator wrote in a July "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit. "That's a streak we'd like to keep running." Another commenter asked about Taser use for the department, which was founded in the 1940s.
"Outside agitators" were responsible for protests following a vigil on Georgia Tech's campus honoring a student killed in a police shooting, the school's president said. As the vigil for Scout Schultz ended, dozens of attendees broke away — participating in protests that left two officers injured and a police vehicle charred. The protesters were "intent on creating a disturbance and inciting violence," Georgia Tech President G.P. "Bud" Peterson said in a statement to the campus community.
The Georgia Tech police officer who shot and killed a student was on duty for one year and had not received crisis intervention training, according to officials and an attorney representing the victim’s family. Tyler Beck — identified Tuesday in a Georgia Bureau of Investigation statement as the officer who shot Scout Schultz — joined the Georgia Tech Police Department in 2016 after serving on the department’s Community Outreach and Engagement, or CORE, unit.
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".
