A Chicago police officer has acknowledged that he knew a 55-year-old woman was standing close to a bat-wielding teen in 2015 yet still opened fire, killing both, court records show. In the latest twist in what has been an unconventional case, a stipulation signed by Officer Robert Rialmo’s attorney indicates that the officer knew Bettie Jones was in “close proximity” to 19-year-old Quintonio LeGrier and that he opened fire “without regard” to that fact.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has appointed a former top aide to the Chicago Police Board, the panel that decides the most serious police disciplinary matters. Andrea Zopp, who was deputy mayor before Emanuel picked her late last month to take over as CEO of the city's public-private economic development arm, would join the board pending City Council approval. The council’s Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider Zopp’s appointment on Friday, according to an agenda.
An administrative law judge has recommended that the Illinois Labor Relations Board throw out the Chicago Police Department’s new disciplinary guidelines, dealing an early loss to the city as it attempts to standardize the punishments of an erratic and often toothless police disciplinary system. The finding in favor of the city’s largest police union, the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, determined the department violated labor law by failing to bargain with the union over the new guidelines.
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".
