A controversial bill that would have denied the public access to police body camera footage is dead for 2016, but the device itself is very much alive for the Alcoa Police Department. "We want the court ,most importantly, to understand what the officers are confronted with," said Captain David Carswell, of the Alcoa Police Department. The bill would have kept the recordings from public view for at least a year.
If gang members want to get out of the life, Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch wants to help. "If you don't want to be in a gang, let me know; let me know," said Chief Rausch. The thought of 12-year-old JaJuan Latham's death has Chief Rausch begging to help anyone that wants to leave that lifestyle for good. "I want to talk to them," said Chief Rausch. "I want to talk to them because when they tell me they want out, I will help them," he added.
A pregnant, Knoxville woman is learning to walk again after she was caught in the middle of gang gunfire. "I'm sitting in the car with my boyfriend, and next thing I know, I hear gunshots, thinking they're fireworks," said 21-year-old Jeanesha Chandler. Chandler can't get up from her wheel chair on her own. Gunfire in her neighborhood put her there, shots she said came from the guns of gang members in a drive-by shooting. "I got hit in my back," said Chandler.
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".
