Excerpt:

Well before the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre called for an armed police officer at every school in America, Jon Hayden had given the recommendation long and serious thought. As a former detective and current sheriff of Kentucky’s McCracken County, Hayden remembers the 1997 school shooting at Heath High School in Paducah, a tragic precursor of the school shooting in Connecticut last week that prompted the NRA’s call. The scene Hayden responded to is still fresh in his mind, and as sheriff, he makes sure every school in his jurisdiction is guarded by an armed police officer. “I saw parents of the wounded and of the dead. I just remember their grief – their unbearable grief,” Hayden said.

We didn’t have one school shooting. We didn’t have two. We’ve had several across the country.”

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
