A truck travels along the stretch of gravel road near La Joya, Texas, Friday Oct. 26, 2012, where a Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter and sharpshooter assisted the previous day in the chase of a suspected illegal immigrant smuggler. Two people in the fleeing vehicle were killed and a third was wounded.  / AP Photo/Chris Sherman LA JOYA, Texas A Texas state trooper who fired on a pickup truck from a helicopter during a deadly chase through the desert was trying to disable the vehicle and suspected it was being used to smuggle drugs, authorities said Friday. The disclosure came a day after the incident left two illegal immigrants from Guatemala dead on an isolated gravel road near the town of La Joya, just north of the Mexico border. State game wardens were the first to encounter the truck Thursday.

  • 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.
