Mr. Wang Shize was born on April 2, 1946. He was a resident of Bazhou District, Bazhong City, Sichuan Province. He was a self-employed handicraft worker. Mr. Wang began to cultivate Falun Dafa in 1997. After the persecution started in July 1999, he remained firm in his cultivation. On April 4, 2001, the persecutors illegally sentenced him to two years of forced labor and detained him in Bazhou District Detention Center. Because he refused to give up his cultivation and did not cooperate with the persecutors in the detention center, the police beat him many times. On January 29, 2002, staff member He from the State Security Team of Bazhou District Police Department kicked Mr. Wang's head and body several times with his leather shoes. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Wang Shize passed away. Later the perpetrators lied about the incident, claiming that Mr. Wang died of a stroke when he was using the restroom. They also had the nerve to ask Mr. Wang's family members for the funeral expenses.
