In response to the Jason Stockley verdict, some protesters in St. Louis are taking a different approach. "The format is changing," says protest organizer Meldon Moffitt, "from ‘No Justice, No Peace’ to ‘No Justice, No Profits’"—a refrain heard as protesters marched through area malls this weekend. Moffitt is a member of a collective of activists who joined the protests immediately after the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.
On Monday night, hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the St. Louis City Justice Center, on Tucker Boulevard, where they believe approximately 50 protesters arrested downtown on Sunday night are being held. Around 6 p.m., the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department announced on Twitter that the final arrest tally from Sunday was 123, and later said all but three of the arrests were for failure to disperse. Demonstrators chanted, "What do we do? Stand up fight back!"
An aerial video captured by Fox-2 (KTVI) shows police in full riot gear walking over, then arresting, a woman during protests downtown Friday afternoon that followed the announcement of former police officer Jason Stockley's acquittal. The video has been circulated online by protesters. SLM has acquired additional on-the-ground footage of the moment from a protester who says he attempted to help the woman.
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".
