Put yourself in his place, Joe

That piece of technology may be the only place he can store and transmit photos, videos, and audios for his personal record and his public free-speech use. When he is told that power to recharge that phone isn't available, consider how many ways he is limited in it's uses.

Even though his monthly contract payments may have him with some service for a while, what are his options when he might not be able to afford that? Then all he will have is a high tech tool with no power to record or access files and no way to transmit them to others, much less talk to loved ones or find work.

It seems that your phone envy is skewing your compassion levels a bit, my friend.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
