OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla -- It is an effective, albeit dangerous way to end a police pursuit. Stop sticks are deployed thousands of times a year across the country. Just last month -- an OHP trooper was killed while putting out stop sticks. It is a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Tens of thousands of passengers, pedestrians and police are injured each year in police pursuits, including OHP Trooper Heath Meyer. Former colleague, Bill Hughes said, "It really hit home.
OKLAHOMA CITY - It was one of the most unifying and anticipated events in nearly 100 years. And, Oklahomans were over the moon for Monday afternoon's total eclipse. “It’s so cute. It looks like a crescent sun instead of a crescent moon. How about that?” said Elizabeth Luecke. Hundreds of folks gathered at the Myriad Gardens for the premiere watch party. From school field trips to skipping work, there were spectators of all ages. “I’m taking a day off. Hope my boss doesn't see this,” Luecke told us.
STILLWATER, Okla. -- It's pretty clear, Jason Jermaine Gray didn't want to go back behind bars. The ex-con had only been out about six months when Stillwater PD's Special Projects Unit spotted him leaving a suspected drug house. "When they turned on the emergency equipment to stop him, the subject fled. That led to a six-and-a-half minute pursuit," said Capt. Kyle Gibbs, with the Stillwater Police Department. The speeding SUV plowed through yards, past pedestrians and through several intersections.
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".
