AKRON - The nephew of Akron’s embattled former police chief says his concerns of wide-spread police corruption were ignored for months by city officials. Some of those claims boiled over last weekend when Police Chief James Nice abruptly resigned amid a trio of misdeeds and allegations. City leaders now acknowledge Nice used racial slurs – including the N-word – directed at Public Safety Director Charles Brown and that the chief had a year-long affair with a high-ranking and married officer.
Former Akron police Chief James Nice allegedly made racially-charged comments about the city’s public safety director, multiple sources told Channel 3 News. The former chief’s racially charged comments were directed specifically at Charles Brown, an African-American and former police captain now serving as a member of Horrigan’s cabinet, sources said.
Marty Flynn still remembers the silence...33 years later. The eerie silence belied the horror waiting inside an old Brooklyn duplex. "I walked upstairs and looked in her room and found her on her bed." It was his sister. The scene was disturbing. Mary Anne Flynn, a 33-year-old nurse, was raped and strangled. Cleveland Police quickly focused on neighbor Tony Apanovitch, a roughneck drinker with a sordid past of sex offenses. He once painted Flynn's home, but she feared him.
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".
