An update on Motherjones' website asks:
When Trayvon Martin was killed, all he had were Skittles, iced tea...and a cellphone, authorities told the L.A. Times. The phone has been mentioned in multiple reports in recent days, and journalists and concerned citizens are starting to ask: Where is Trayvon's phone? Why did the police on the scene of the shooting not use it to identify Martin, or contact his next of kin? "Trayvon's body was bagged and taken to the morgue, where he was tagged as a John Doe," writes African American affairs blogger Sandra Rose. "No one contacted Trayvon's family even though police had Trayvon's cell phone in their possession."http://motherjones.com/...
The lack of information about Martin's phone is feeding further skepticism about the police's conduct, and it's led New York Times columnist Charles Blow to start a new meme on Twitter:
Follow below for the twitter information.
Trayvon Martin had a cell phone with him when he was murdered. Other than mentioning that there was a cell phone, the police have made no mention of what was on it. Not only that, but Trayvon's body was bagged and sent to the morgue as a John Doe. His father had no idea what happened to Trayvon until he reported his son missing the next day. Only then did they send a cop with Trayvon's morgue picture to his father's house for identification. Apparently the police didn't make an effort to reach someone using information from Trayvon's cell phone after his death. Perhaps to give them more time to cover-up for Zimmerman??? So all of you who know how to tweet, please help out Charles Blow.
I know nothing about tweeting, Charles Blow wants everybody make the following question trend,
