Silk, Pie Charts, and NFL Arrests

I stumbled into an interesting conversation yesterday on Twitter between a friend of mine and the twitter handle for Silk.co.  For those of you not familiar with Silk, it is a website that aggregates datasets that are relevant to current trends and events and provides some simple and easy to use data visualization tools for creating a stories using their data sets.

It all started when Silk published this tweet yesterday afternoon with a chart created from their site using a dataset of NFL arrests since 2000.
