On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn spoke with Patricia Adames, the mother of David Ruiz, a 32-year-old member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and father of two young children who is reportedly being denied the
basic human rights of nutrition and adequate hydration by hospital staff in Tucson, Arizona.
According to Patricia, David was admitted to St. Joseph's Hospital after he suffered a stroke on New Year's Eve. David was declared brain dead after less than two weeks and has since been denied nutrition and adequate hydration. Patricia claims her son has responded to her voice several times and, though he is now extremely emaciated, still struggles to respond.
She said David was not given enough time to heal before hospital staff decided to let him starve to death. Patricia's daughter said on a GoFundMe page that her brother has responded to family members on multiple occasions by "twitching, raising his toes [and] feet, and twitching his left hand [and] fingers."

Glenn pointed out the glaring hypocrisy between the way the liberal media and "social justice warrior" lynch mobs reacted when the Covington Catholic High School students smiled the wrong way at Native American Nathan Phillips, compared to this Native American who is literally being allowed to slowly die from starvation.
"For those of us who care about justice, let me take this apart," Glenn said. "Today, there is a Native American in a ... Catholic hospital and he's being denied food and water. And the press is silent.
"Where's your social justice now? Your social justice falls apart because you're not really serving justice," he added. "The media has chosen a side. And the media is now for social justice, not actual justice."
