You know that Parks and Rec where the judge makes Tom Haverford give up all his electronic devices and stop using social media to protect the public good?  Is that ever a real thing?  ‘Cause I think there’s someone who really needs that kind of intervention.

The Twitter trending topics worldwide show an interesting trend—outside of Mark O’Mara, most of the people-related topics here are tangential to the Trayvon trial, touching on prior “trial of the century” touchstones (OJ Simpson, Casey Anthony) and other civil rights cases (Emmett Till, Rodney King). Not mentioned? Trayvon Martin or George Zimmerman. (via @nycjim)

One reason some of these names might be relevant is they refer to cases in which the accused were found not guilty of the initial criminal charges but later were found liable for civil damages (OJ) or found guilty of federal charges (some of the cops in the Rodney King case).
