Elgin Police Chief Jeff Swoboda announced Friday he plans to release police body camera and squad car video in the fatal shooting of Decynthia Clements at the end of next week, when Illinois State Police investigators are expected to be done interviewing officers. "Although the investigation is expected to last several months, we recognize that the public has a right to know what happened.
Elgin council members Wednesday are expected to discuss ending the city's 45-year-ban on ice cream trucks. Jim Cremeens, an ice cream truck owner and Elgin resident, had approached city officials last summer asking for loosening of regulations. A discussion about a draft ordinance initially was expected in the fall. Cremeens said he followed up several times and finally was told the discussion would take place next week at the city council's committee of the whole meeting.
A group of Elgin activists is planning to protest every day in front of the police department until body camera video in the fatal shooting of Decynthia Clements is released. "We don't want to lose momentum and we want to let them know this is a serious issue," organizer Corey Battles said. Police Chief Jeff Swoboda told protesters Tuesday he's consulting with Illinois State Police, which is conducting the investigation as per state law, about a time frame to release the video.
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".
