The Hardships I Endured in Linan Police Station, Jinzhou, Liaoning Province
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a female practitioner from Jinzhou, Liaoning province, who began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. On three occasions, I went to Beijing and appealed to the central government to stop persecuting Falun Gong. For appealing, I was imprisoned in the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in 1999 to serve two years. While in the labor camp, I suffered various tortures such as beating, electric shock and physical punishment along with prolonged heavy labor.
At approximately 8pm on December 28, 2001, while on my way to visit a friend, five plainclothes police officers (three men and two women) stopped me outside my door. They proceeded to push me back into my home for a body search. I asked them to show proper identification. One policeman (whose name I discovered was Jia Wenxiang) came up to me and slapped my face and said that that I could take their slapping me as their police identification. I was then forcefully taken to Linan Police Station because while searching me, five truth clarifying flyers were found in my bag. When we arrived at the station, I was cuffed to an iron chair and body searched. I requested them to release me because their acts were illegal, but they just beat me up.
I tried to swallow the mini telephone book I had so no more innocent people could be persecuted. In response, several policemen immediately ganged up on me, pushed me to the ground, and started to kick and punch me. They strangled me until I lost consciousness. When I woke up, they had retrieved the now blood stained phone book from my mouth. The police were enraged and beat me fiercely. Some grabbed and stretched both my arms and ankles and forced me to lie on the ground face down. Then a six-foot tall policeman weighing over 200 pounds jumped up and down on my back and kicked me heavily in the lower back. I thought he meant to kill me. I was unable to breathe under the heavy weight. After torturing me like this for a while, they made me turn over so that I was lying on my back. Several policemen then held me tightly to the ground. Policeman Zhang Keshan slapped my face with all his strength. He slapped my face with the heel of a shoe. I don't know how long he slapped me, though eventually my swollen and bruised face lost all feeling. Under both of my eyes, it bled for fifteen days. Next, I was cuffed in a very painful posture where both hands were tied behind my back with one hand over the shoulder, and the other against the lower back. The handcuffs cut my skin and dug into the flesh. The policemen threw me to the ground and left me there for more than half an hour. It felt as though both my arms were broken. When the handcuffs were finally opened, both my hands and arms were without feeling. They then cuffed me again and forced me to sit on the ground for two or three hours. During that time, I was menstruating.
The unbearable pain in my chest and my sides gave me great difficulty breathing. I was unable to get up or lower my head. I requested an examination of my wounds and then showed the results to the so-called "chief of the police bureau." I also reported the illegal interrogation and torture his policemen had undertaken to him. He said a few meaningless words and left. A tough-looking policeman slapped me and threatened that this was the result of my appeal. Policeman Zhang Keshan said, "If you're going to die, don't die here (Jinzhou Linan Police Station). Go to the detention center and die there. You can even kill yourself there." Around midnight, I was sent me to the Second Detention Center. I asked the people there to exam my wounds but I was just ignored. In the detention center, I never saw anyone handling my case. I also wrote a petition to them, but still there was no response.
On the morning of January 30, 2002, I was handcuffed and sent to the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp to serve a three-year term.
