(CNN)– The videos, photos and tweets are chilling. An image of a girl hanging limply from the arms of 2 young men. Other boys, laughingly saying the girl had to be dead since she didn’t flinch as her body was violated. An alleged rape, made into a joke. The images and social media messages are at the heart of criminal costs against 2 high school football players implicated of sexually attacking a 16-year-old girl throughout a series of back-to-school parties in August. Both boys are charged with rape. One also is implicated of “illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material.”. Their trial prior to a juvenile court judge is arranged for February 13. CNN is not recognizing the girl or her supposed aggressors, who are juveniles. CNN’s policy is also not to launch the names of alleged rape sufferers.

  • 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.
