How Shandong Falun Dafa Practitioner Wang Yongdong Was Tortured to Death

October 22, 2001 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Wang Yongdong, male, was born in 1966, and was a resident of Yangxi Street, Yishui County, Shandong Province. He was the vice assistant in charge of the Falun Dafa Assistance Center in Yishui County. On the evening of National Day (October 1) of China in 2001, the Yishui County government started another wave of arresting and detaining Falun Dafa practitioners in the county. They also sent the arrested Falun Dafa practitioners to a brainwashing class in Yishui Town, Fengjia Village. Around 8 a.m. on September 21, 2001, the vicious police of the Administration and Security Section in Yishui County Police Station arrested practitioner Wang Yongdong on east market (near Yishui County Bus Station). In the market, the police ruthlessly beat him. Afterwards, six policemen including Zhang Jueyuan, Zhang Zhitian and Wang Jingwen took practitioner Wang to his home for a search. During the illegal search, practitioner Wang didn't cooperate with the unreasonable requests and commands. He also clarified the truth to the police and pointed out the illegal behavior of the police. Therefore the vicious police were flustered and exasperated, so they beat practitioner Wang again until about 10 a.m. Practitioner Wang was killed at his own home. Then the police threw his body from the fourth floor and attempted to stage the scene of his committing suicide by jumping off the building.

Wang Yongdong's relatives, neighbors, and the village leaders and residents saw that Wang's body had many scars. His body recorded that he remained faithful and unyielding. His body also recorded the torture and persecution that he endured before he died as well as the thug's craziness, fierceness and cruelty. None of his family members, friends, neighbors or leaders of the village believed the policemen's cover up. They were sad for the loss of such a compassionate life and were indignant over the police's illegal arrest, beating and torture. They were saddened by the disregard for the sanctity of human life.

The shameless atrocity of Evil persecuting Falun Dafa can not be ignored and tolerated by any compassionate human. The family members of practitioner Wang Yongdong endured great sorrow. They requested the postponement of cremating practitioner Wang's body. At the same time, they took legal proceedings against the police of the County Police Station hoping to punish the murderers.

After the Court of Yishui County received the complaint of Wang Yongdong's family, the legal medical experts of Shandong Province High Court, Linyi City Intermediate Court and Yishui County Basic Court had an autopsy completed on practitioner Wang's body. The result of the autopsy showed that practitioner Wang's skin was black and purple. His neck had obvious finger marks. His Adam's apple was protruding in a strange fashion. His clavicle was broken, three of his left ribs were fractured and two of his right ribs were fractured. There was a hole in his leg. The leg bone was fractured to pieces. His thighbone was also fractured.

The proof and the facts of Wang Yongdong being murdered were shown in front of the people, the government, and the court. However, the court still ruled that Wang Yongdong "jumped from the building to commit suicide." They also pronounced that the wounds on Wang Yongdong's body had been inflicted form falling. During the court proceedings, the police accused practitioner Wang of swearing at people. Immediately the village head of Wang Yongdong's village testified that Wang Yongdong never swore at people. After the judgment, Wang Yongdong's family and the villagers refused to accept the court's decision and appealed to the Yishui County Government, but to no avail. Wang Yongdong's family only received 40,000 RMB as compensation. After the lawsuit, Wang's family never received the results of the autopsy report, the defendants' reply, or the official documents of the court's decision.

People of the world please take note. This is what the Chinese police did; this is the judgment of the law. This is the experience of the compassionate people of China. The tragedy of Jiang Zemin Regime's "Killing is counted as suicide" happened again.

We have to ask, who left their fingerprints on Wang Yongdong's neck? Who made so many wounds on him and how? If Wang Yongdong really jumped out of the window to commit suicide, what were those 5 or 6 police officers doing at the scene? What was the 40,000 RMB compensation for? Why didn't they provide the legal documents according to legal procedure?

Everyone, please pay attention to what is happening in Mainland China! The evil people are using their power to practice violence and torture in order to abuse and murder compassionate people. Falun Dafa practitioners who pursue the truth of the universe, Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, are being persecuted. They have lost their families. Thousands of people have lost their lives. Tens of thousands of Falun Dafa practitioners have used their own bodies to endure the unreasonable persecution. They are using all kinds of peaceful methods to prevent the vicious violence from continuing. Are they doing this for themselves? You should know what they're supporting is the principle of the universe: Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance. Is this only one person's problem? Doesn't this involve all people? Can ignoring evil, tolerating evil, and being afraid of evil guarantee that one will not fall victim oneself? How long can people without conscience last?

I hope that every life that has righteous thoughts could earnestly resist the evil's violence, and move toward a beautiful future. This is what Falun Dafa practitioner Wang Yongdong wanted: to warn the people of the world and to help people wake up.
