The Persecution Against the Disabled Mr. Wang Guangqi by the Communist Party of Taoxu Town in Mengyin County, Shandong Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Wang Guangqi, 55 years old, lived in Jiuquanyu Village, Taoxu Town, Mengyin County, Shandong Province. In the past, he was disabled and could not take care of himself. After he obtained Falun Dafa, his health improved immensely. He was able to stand up, walk around, and even do some light chores.
On January 19, 2000, Mr. Wang Guangqi was arrested and taken to the Division of Finance of his town and tortured there by Party officials from the Taoxu Town just because he participated in the collective signature to appeal for Falun Dafa. On the night of March 6, 2000, Mo Guangli (male), Bao Xitang (male), Qin Zhicheng (male), Lai Xianlu (male), and twenty or thirty others from the town government beat Mr. Wang Guangqi so brutally that he was covered with bumps and bruises. He could not move for weeks from the pain.
In 2002, to seek justice for Falun Dafa and Master Li, Mr. Wang Guangqi went to Beijing to appeal and was arrested on Tienanmen Square. Later, Li Changxiang (male), the deputy head of the local police station, Shi Yunduan (male), the head of the 610 Office of the town, and Fang Guoming (male), the party secretary of his village, took him back from Beijing. On the way back, Shi Yunduan said, "We will spend 5,000 yuan to hire a gangster to kill you. You will disappear, and nobody will know who did it."
After arriving at the police station, policeman Diao Chuanjun handcuffed Mr. Wang facing the wall. One policeman said behind him, "Have you finished digging the hole?" Another person replied that the hole was over three feet deep now. They had planned to bury Wang Guangqi alive on Meng Mountain. However, afraid that their plan had been discovered, they transferred Mr. Wang Guangqi to the town government and detained him there for seven days before releasing him. Back at Wang Guangqi's house, Shi Yundaun, policemen Wang Zhaoxiang and Li Xiangyan, and Fang Guoming destroyed everything they could find. By the time they were done, nothing was salvageable. Wang Guangqi had been unable to care for himself for over twenty years because of his disability, and he now had to go live with his oldest brother, who was paralyzed when he was very young and lives in a house made of four stone walls with a plastic cover over the top. All the two had to share were straw on the floor used as a mattress, a very old worn-out blanket used to cover them at night, and an old broken bowl.
Shi Yunduan and Fang Guoming directed people to block the windows and door of this structure , and Fang Guoming sent people to watch so that Mr. Wang Guangqi did not leave and that no one brought him food or water. At this point, Wang Guangqi was unable to stand up anymore from the abuse sustained from the police. Every day Fang Guoming broadcast via a speaker system to the villagers that whoever sends food or water to Mr. Wang Guangqi will get punished. Later, Mr. Wang Guangqi said that he did not know who the kind person was who left pancakes and water out for him and his brother, but it enabled them to survive the twenty days of torment.
Fang Guoming also confiscated Mr. Wang Guangqi's land that he used to grow his own food. His chestnut orchard, which was worth 15,000 yuan, was sold off. Mr. Wang Guangqi lost everything and had to beg for food to save his brother's life. During this time, he received a lot of help from the other villagers. Even now, Wang Guangqi still doesn't have any farmland to sustain himself. Mr. Wang Guangqi's second oldest brother exposed the deeds of Li Zhengguo and Wang Zhaoxiang from the 610 Office. As a result he was beaten, choked until he lost consciousness, and fined 2,000 yuan.
