In August 2005, Warden He ordered five inmates, including Xu Mingyi, Huang Zetong, and Liu Huihai, to assault Mr. Peng Huisheng. Mr. Peng sustained injuries to his head, face, and neck. Warden He watched this beating. Instead of stopping it, he turned a blind eye, permitting the inmates to continue. Those five inmates dragged Mr. Peng to the bathroom and threw him on the floor. They then fiercely kicked Mr. Peng in the chest and legs, popping the buttons off his shirt. His head, face, neck, chest, and legs had multiple serious injuries. Mr. Peng has not yet fully recovered from the beatings. After the beating, Mr. Peng had difficulty eating and walking, and could not urinate for several days.
Later on, seeing that Mr. Peng could not be brainwashed, Warden He ordered three inmates--Liu Huihai, Huang Zetong and Zhu Haitong--to repeatedly strike and kick Mr. Peng in the head and chest in the dark. Mr. Peng's head bled heavily, and his chest was injured.

After Warden He persecuted Falun Gong practitioners, he fell into a trance and started to worry. He suffers from chronic insomnia. Finally, He stopped persecuting Falun Gong and asked to be transferred to a different post. Other correctional officers participating in the persecution knew they would become scapegoats if they followed the CCP. They could not put up with the mental stress, and all of them asked to be transferred to other posts where they would not be persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.
Inmates Xu Mingyi, Huang Zetong, Liu Huihai, and Xie Zhenguo received retribution for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Some got very sick and were hospitalized. Others suffered from a bleeding anus, even after several surgeries. Some developed rectal problems. Yet others became humpbacks. Another almost suffocated from choking while eating. Others contracted malignant cancers. These persecutors live in fear every day.
