A Dafa practitioner was twice awakened in the middle of the night and taken to a brainwashing class. On the evening of May 10, officers from Baisha Police Station of Wuhan City and the local "610 Office" once again attempted to send her to a brainwashing class. The practitioner refused to go with them and went upstairs. The lawless officials then kicked the stair door open and used a hoe to pry open her bedroom door.
