A Hundred Tortures Illustrated (16 - 18)
16 -- Electromagnetic Shock
Falun Dafa practitioners are peacefully resisting government sponsored persecution in China in order to stay true to their faith. Electromagnetic shock is one of the many forms of torture they are subjected to in detention centers, labor camps, and brainwashing centers.
In order to torture steadfast practitioners, police place a type of electronic device onto the practitioners' heads or chests, which results in their instant collapse. This torture device can severely damage the brain and internal organs, resulting in loss of memory, confusion, lack of energy, extreme pain, but no visible injuries to the surface of the body, because the damage is inflicted by sound waves or vibrations.
The device includes an electric needle, like an electric baton, connected to either large or small needles, which can cause convulsions of all the muscles in the body. Ms. Zhao Ru in Jilin City, Jilin Province was tortured with this device. She collapsed instantly, and had to be carried off.
17 -- Exposure to the Baking Sun
Practitioners in China are peacefully resisting violent coercive methods used by the government in order stay true to their beliefs. Exposure to the baking sun is one of the tortures to which they are subjected in detention centers, labor camps, and brainwashing centers.
Police shackle steadfast practitioners outdoors under the baking sun, which results in dehydration, fainting, sunburn, etc.
During some of the brainwashing classes, police lock practitioners inside a poorly ventilated, stifling cell, and then turn on the heat to torture them.
18 - Dragging Behind a Vehicle
Falun Dafa practitioners peacefully resist these torture methods, staying steadfast to their beliefs. Being dragged behind a vehicle is one of the tortures to which they are subjected in detention centers, labor camps, or brainwashing centers.
Police officers and camp guards drag practitioners with ropes behind a speeding vehicle, resulting in tragically deep, bloody flesh wounds that sometimes expose the bones.
