A 26-year-old Marine veteran suffering from PTSD after serving in Iraq died in front of his family when a Wichita police officer shot him on the Fourth of July. That was more than three years ago. Thursday, the city went to court trying to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the estate of Icarus Randolph. Before the family sued, they filed a notice with the city that they were seeking $5 million. It’s a complicated, heavily fought case.
An unarmed Barber County man “in fact did comply” when officers “simultaneously shouted inconsistent commands” at him right before the undersheriff fired a fatal bean bag round, the man’s widow contends in a court document. That contention is at odds with a news release issued Oct. 7 by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation saying that Steven Myers “did not comply with all verbal commands given by deputies” when he was shot in Sun City on Oct. 6.
A prominent Wichita woman accused in a lawsuit of embezzling millions of dollars from two medical businesses has admitted to it, and she and her husband have indicated they can’t pay back the money, a court document says.
City's attorneys contend fatal shooting of Marine vet was 'objectively reasonable'; Randolph family lawyers contend officer wasn't following training on dealing with mentally ill and escalated the situation.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
