Prison Reformer David Ruiz Dies

If you ever feel sorry for yourself because you're struggling against the odds, remember David Ruiz, the inmate who reformed the Texas prison system.

Thirty years ago Ruiz refused to accept brutality in Texas jail. Appealing for justice, Ruiz kept filing writs that argued that the state of Texas violated the United States Constitution.

NPR broadcast a remembrance of David Ruiz who died recently.
