Violent Acts at Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp: Using Poisonous Snakes, Lizards and Five-Clawed Electric Batons
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Wang Chunmei, about 50, is a resident of Hezhuangzhi Village of Zunhua in Tangshan City, Hebei Province. Because Wang Chunmei persisted in practicing Falun Gong, being shocked with an electric baton in Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp became a regular treatment for her. Everyday she had to face this cruel torture. The guards rolled copper wires around her wrists, enabling the electric current to pass through her whole body. On one occasion, she lost consciousness during one of these torture sessions. When she regained consciousness she found blood around the edges of her fingers and experienced a heart-piercing pain in her hands. She discovered that the guards had used needles to jab the undersides of her fingers. She lost consciousness again while the guards were torturing her session. After they revived her, she felt a hot and tingling sensation on her face and mouth. She realized that they had sprayed spicy ground pepper on her.
In the Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp, the guards did many horrible things. They placed a thick wooden stick on top of both of her thighs. Then the guard Zang Haili stood on the stick and rolled it around on her thighs. Her thighs turned black and blue and swelled so badly that she had difficulty standing up. The guards also handcuffed her out in a remote area and three times twisted a poisonous snake around her neck. Each time she grabbed it and threw it down. They also placed a lizard on her. Then they used the electric baton to shock the lizard and chase it over her body until the lizard was dead. Then they shamelessly said, "We're shocking the lizard not you."
Wang Chunmei went on a hunger strike to protest this persecution. She requested that the persecution cease. Instead, the police used five-clawed electric batons to shock her one after the other and then force-fed her. If she refused to eat, they kept shocking her with the electric baton. Not only did the common prisoners find her strong character admirable, but all the prison police were very impressed by her steadfastness.
