The Brutal and Shocking Persecution of Practitioners in Tianjin City Women's Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) Prison guard Li Hong (female) joined in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. She works in the No. 4 Ward in Tianjin City Women's Prison as the deputy ward director. She ordered "personal cangues" (1) to torture practitioners who refused to accept the brainwashing. She tortured the practitioners through "Three Straightenings and One Bench" method (referring to sitting on bench, straightening the waist, straightening the chest, then the legs are straightened together for an extended period of time). If one did not conform to the requirement, they were beaten. When a practitioner sat there until her whole body started to tremble, she was still not allowed to change position. The regular prisoners escalated their torture towards the practitioners in order to reduce their sentences and please the prison guards. Some practitioners' lower limbs were almost paralyzed due to long periods of forced sitting. They were paralyzed below the waist and therefore had trouble walking.
Ms. Xue Guiqing is a Falun Gong practitioner over 50 years old. She is from Wuqing County and went on hunger strike for ten months. The prison guard Li Hong ordered regular prisoners to force-feed her. Afterwards, she was not allowed to use the toilet, forcing her to stain her trousers. During the winter, when the nights were extremely cold, Ms. Xue Guiqing's face was frozen to the point of becoming purple and blue, and her whole body was trembling, but she was not allowed to use quilts, and was locked up for 24 hours. Ms. Xue Guiqing's physical body became very weak and very emaciated. Since June 2005, no one has seen Ms. Xue Guiqing. It has been over four months, and no one knows whether she is still alive.
In the prison cell, if there was one Falun Gong practitioner who refused to be "transformed," then everyone in the cell had to labor, study, and hold meetings for criticism all day long.
The guards from the Fifth Ward of the prison enslaved Falun Gong practitioners. They punished practitioners by forcing them to stand from 5:00 a.m. in the morning until 12:30 a.m., after midnight. The over-loaded labor caused practitioners' fingers to deform, and their joints were all swollen and could no longer stretch. What is even more vicious was that the guard ordered four people to hold a Falun Gong practitioner to the floor to beat her violently. Later the prisoners in Gong's team even hung the beaten practitioner, Ms. Guo Yuqian, from the upper level of the bunk bed.
This is the so-called "Humane Management" of the Tianjin City Women's Prison. The most evil and violent persons are: Xu, Li Lan and Gong (all female). The most severely persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners are Ms. Guo Yuqian, Ms. Liu Jinfeng, Ms. Wang Fan, Ms. Wang Guangjuan, Ms. Lin Fuhua, Ms. Li Weizhen, Ms. Shi Zhenhua, and others.
