One bloody scrape trailed from her left eye to the corner of her mouth, where it met a wide bruise on her chin. More blood-red patches marred her nose, forehead and the skin between her eyes. Bobbie L. Mael of Lockport says in legal papers that her arms and legs were bruised, too, and she suffered a concussion when an Erie County Sheriff's deputy threw her face first onto the Transit Road parking lot she had pulled into because she felt sick.
An inmate hanged himself at the Erie County Correctional Facility in Alden early Wednesday, according to county sources. Efforts to revive the man failed, and he was pronounced dead. A prison source, who asked to remain unidentified because he is not authorized to speak publicly, told The News that the inmate appeared distraught when he ended a telephone conversation. He then went into the shower of his housing unit and apparently hanged himself.
An Erie County Holding Center inmate died days ago under mysterious circumstances, even as federal authorities continue to monitor the jail they described as brutal and inhumane. “It’s difficult to say what happened,” said Matthew A. Albert, an attorney for the family of India Cummings, 27, who had lived in Lackawanna for three months before being jailed Feb. 1.
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".
