The Persecution Experienced by A Disabled Person in Da'an City, Jilin Province (shocking images)
(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Wang Fudong. I am disabled, and I'm only thirty years old. I am originally from the No. 388 Village, Chagan Town, Da'an City, Jilin Province. I now live in Zhongjia Village, Ershili Town, Jinzhou District, Dalian City, Liaoning Province. Because I spoke up for Falun Dafa, the police tortured me and injured me, causing me to become disabled.
I have been disabled since being tortured by police in 2002. Besides having been personally caused great mental and physical harm, the persecution against me has also greatly pained and burdened my family and friends, especially my mother. She had already suffered through the horror of my father being tortured during the Cultural Revolution until he was permanently disabled. And now, as an added burden, she has to face the horror repeating itself, with her son becoming disabled as a result of police torture, simply for practicing Falun Dafa. Her anguish and suffering are hard to describe.
When I was nineteen years old I developed necrosis of both of my thigh bones. My body was stiff and I couldn't take care of myself. Because of the expenses of the medical treatment I required, my family, already poor, became even poorer. It was difficult for me to walk. Every step I made was equal to a normal person's half step. But in order to maintain a living, I had to herd cattle and sheep to the pasture. I often tripped and fell then couldn't get up from the ground until a passerby came to my aid and helped me get up. My situation was very difficult.
But then something wonderful happened! I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998 and my health improved gradually. The pain I suffered was gone, without my having to take any medication! This saved my family a lot of medical expenses.
Yet best of all, the benefits from practicing Falun Dafa was the change in my moral character. I used to want to retaliate against those who had bullied and taunted me before, but after practicing Falun Dafa I came to understand the principle at "good meets with good and evil with evil," so I eliminated those bad thoughts of revenge from my mind.
On July 20, 1999, Jiang's regime launched a brutal persecution against Falun Dafa. During the 2000 Spring Festival I went back to my hometown and clarified the truth to my family and fellow villagers and posted signs reading, "Falun Dafa is great!" and, "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance are great!"
After I returned to Dalian City I wrote a letter to Wang Kai, the chief of the Chagan Township Police Station. I had heard that in his zeal to persecute a schoolteacher who practiced Falun Dafa in his area, he ordered her under force to walk to work every day instead of riding a bicycle. In the letter I told him that what he did was illegal. But Wang Kai used my letter as evidence to persecute me. Along with another policeman named Zhao from Linjiang Police Station, they traveled from Jilin Province to Dalian City to arrest me. Wang Kai ganged up with the police of the Ershili Town Police Station, citing the Political and Judiciary Commission rules, and together they came to my home and arrested me in violation of the Chinese Constitution. They ransacked my home and confiscated my Falun Gong books.
My mother tried to stop the police from arresting me. The Ershili Town police chief intimidated and threatened her. He deceived my mother by saying that they were going to question me at the police station for a couple of days and that they would send me back home afterwards. They did not show us any legal arrest warrant when they ransacked my home and took me away.
I resisted when the police tried to make me sit in the car, so they used force and crammed me into the trunk! It was very uncomfortable. I had a leg injury from a small shovel a few days prior to this, and it was still bleeding and oozing pus. My mother showed them my wounds, trying to arouse the police's conscience, but they were not concerned at all. They took me all the way from Dalian City, Liaoning Province to Da'an City, Jilin Province. Eventually we went on a train. On the train I lost consciousness. Wang Kai shoved me under the seat. It became obvious from their conversation that the real reason for them arresting me was so they would get a promotion. Wang Kai paid no attention to the fact that he and I are related to each other.
I was illegally incarcerated at Da'an City's Prison in Jilin Province for over two months. The prison's dilapidated conditions made my wounded leg worse and it started to develop gangrene. The bed in the prison was very low, therefore I could not get up off the bed. It was like torture. I struggled and lived through those two months in the presence of my verbally abusive cellmates. Then, my health suddenly deteriorated. Both of my feet became swollen, causing me great pain when walking. The prison authorities did not want to take responsibility, so they sentenced me to three years of forced labor, in another location so they wouldn't be responsible for my condition. Somebody else signed the verdict for me with the charge of "disturbing social order." How could an injured person like me, who had difficulty walking, do something to "disturb the social order?"
The police left me at a relative's home. I stayed there for a few days before I attempted to return home to Dalian City. When I was struggling to walk at the Da'an Railway Station before the train arrived, a woman asked me what happened. I told her that because I practice Falun Gong and follow the principle of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance," to be a good person, I was arrested and injured to this degree. While I was clarifying the truth, two plainclothes police overheard my discussion and arrested me. They took me to the Railway Station police office and later sent me to the Da'an North Police Station. My feet were aching very badly by that time and I could hardly walk. But the police weren't concerned at all, because for every Falun Gong practitioner they arrested, they could get a 1,000-Yuan (1) bonus. In the interrogation record in the Da'an North Police Station I found words describing me as a "criminal." I tore the record up, because I am not a criminal nor am I guilty of any crime. In retaliation, the police beat me severely, using a wet towel to cause internal injuries without leaving any marks or bruises on my body. They also called the police from Linjiang Police Station and illegally imprisoned me again at Da'an Prison for two weeks. My health became even worse. The prison did not want to take any responsibility for me due to my deteriorating physical condition and therefore allowed me to go home. Two officers from the Linjiang Police Station put me on the train, told the train police a few words and left. Now I have returned home to Dalian City, Liaoning Province.
I am a law-abiding Chinese citizen. I spoke the truth about Falun Dafa, exercising my constitutional rights. I was unreasonably persecuted, and because of the severe abuse under the persecution, I became disabled. I am accusing Jiang's regime: Accusing them of savage mental and physical cruelty under the persecution, and I am holding them responsible for the pain and suffering my family has to endure because of the treatment I have received. I ask kind people around the world to join with me to help stop this persecution.
