We must have concrete answers as to why an unarmed black man died at the hand of two IMPD officers, for the sake of justice, for the sake of his family, for the sake of our city. It's been nearly two months since Indianapolis police shot and killed an unarmed black man. And with all that is happening in our country, it would be easy to forget about Aaron Bailey. But we must not.
When you're anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-LGBT, anti-immigrant, anti-Jew and anti-everything-not-white, then you're pro-hate. "You will not replace us." "Jews will not replace us." Does that sound like the America you know and love? Does that sound like the country that boasts on its iconic national symbol, the Statue of Liberty: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..."But this is our America today. This is where we are as a nation. This is how we hate.
IMPD Deputy Chief James Waters wanted a better Indianapolis. He wanted a better world for those he loved and for those he didn't even know. "Don't worry about the things you can't do anything about." Those were the words Indy's Deputy Chief of of Investigations James Waters often said to members of his family. At Waters' funeral Wednesday it became evident that while he may not have worried about the things he could not change, he worked tirelessly to change the things he could.
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".
