(Clearwisdom.net) I am not a practitioner, but I was once detained in the Chuanxi Prison, and I personally witnessed how the evil police persecuted Falun Gong practitioners who were jailed there. In 2005, a Falun Gong practitioner was tortured to death in the Chuanxi Prison.

In 2000, the police transferred 16 Falun Gong practitioners from the Yangmahe Women's Prison in Jianyang, Sichuan Province to Miaoxishan Forced Labor Camp in Sichuan Province. Miaoxishan Forced Labor Camp is also known as Chuanxi Prison. Practitioners were forced to perform slave labor, and if they didn't listen to the guards, they weren't allowed to buy necessities or use the toilet.

In order to "transform" Falun Gong practitioners, the police physically tortured them. They hung the practitioners by their handcuffed wrists from window frames for ten or fifteen days and didn't let them down. The practitioners were also deprived of sleep.

In 2001, Falun Gong practitioners detained in Miaoxishan Prison were transferred to the newly-built 12th Cell Area of the Sichuan Prison in Longchuanyi. The prison guards instigated criminal inmates to beat Falun Gong practitioner Su Nan, and they knocked her teeth out. The guards forced practitioner Gao Hongxiang to write a "transformation" statement and wear a prisoner badge, but she refused. They tied her with rope and tortured her. Practitioner Zhang Hongqiong said, "Falun Dafa is good." For this she was beaten and tied up with ropes.

Before dawn arrived each day, the guards forced Falun Gong practitioners to run in a circle around the yard until they were completely exhausted. Then they ordered inmates to drag them while running. They rewarded inmates for doing this by giving them additional performance points. Some practitioners went on hunger strike to protest this abuse. The guards force-fed them using the excuse, "It is for the sake of Falun Gong practitioners' lives." They ordered criminal inmates to force feed practitioners or forcibly put them on an intravenous drip.

Chuanxi Women's Prison was later renamed Chengdu City Women's Prison. Policewoman Wen Xiujun put Falun Gong practitioner Fan Ying, who was detained in the 6th Cell Area, into a solitary confinement cell several times. Criminal inmates often beat her. If there were visitors or inspectors in the prison, Fan Ying would say loudly, "Falun Dafa is good," to validate the Fa and tell people from outside that many Falun Gong practitioners were detained in the prison. Wen Xiujun slandered Fan Ying by saying that she became excited and shouted when she saw male inmates. Upon hearing this, I knew that the policewoman was lying because in the prison everyone knew that Falun Gong practitioners upheld high moral standards.

Policewoman Wen Xiujun also taught homosexual inmates how to torture Falun Gong practitioners. Practitioner Jiang Yanli was hung up and handcuffed. Wen Xiujun instigated a homosexual inmate to insult her. Wen instigated criminal inmates to beat practitioner Li Xiaoyu and she herself also beat Ms. Li regularly.

In 2005, a Falun Gong practitioner who had been transferred to our prison was tortured to death. The guards then sent her to the hospital and told the person in charge that no one was allowed to know of the incident.

In prison I saw that Falun Gong practitioners were severely persecuted and lived in a miserable environment, but they were very steadfast in their beliefs. Their strong wills when facing tyranny and their peaceful minds and pure hearts in adhering to Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance greatly touched me. I even want to become a Falun Gong practitioner - a member of the pure lotus land in the future.
