Mr. Wu Simin, age 63, was a Falun Dafa practitioner who lived in Zuosuotun, Yongning Town, Yanqing County, Beijing City. He went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa on December 25, 2000. He was then escorted back by local police, and sent to a detention center. He was beaten to the brink of death, and was sent to the Yongning Hospital on January 5, 2001. He died after rescue efforts failed. His body was covered with bruises.

Wu Simin's older brother found the Director of the local police substation, and told him that he would sue them. The former Assistant Director Zheng Jianmin said, "Can you afford a lawsuit? You can't win no matter what the circumstances. We officials look out for each other."
