I bought it at Butler Drug on 26th and Nicollet using hoarded lunch money. It was a Wasp 8-shot, all black, with a metal cylinder that snapped out for easy loading. The toy cap gun had an orange plug at the end of the barrel to distinguish it from a real gun, but I quickly learned that you could take a screwdriver to remove the cap or simply paint it black using leftovers from my model car kits.
Mike Quinn broke in and trained new Minneapolis cops back in the 1980s. They were mostly young and idealistic, eager to be in a job where they could serve the community. But they were also aware of an often suspect public and the notion that bad cops exist. "When rookies came into the department they always said they wanted to be an ethical cop," said Quinn, author of "Walking With The Devil," a book about the police code of silence. "They asked how they would know which cops are ethical.
When Jonathan O'Shaughnessy turned 18, his father, Brian, bought him a tattoo of the Celtic cross. "Johnny," as dad called him, couldn't wait until spring when he could wear a tank top and show off the forearm tattoo and a slogan in Gaelic: "Loyalty to the end."
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".
