(Clearwisdom.net) Fu Chunsheng, male, age 51, lived in Fengman District of Jinlin City, Jilin Province. At a little after 8 p.m. on December 28, 2001, Dachangtun Police Station in Fengman District started a massive wave of illegal arrests of Falun Gong practitioners. At that time, Fu Chunsheng was out of the house. Around 9 p.m., when Fu returned to his home, policemen rushed up and arrested him, illegally searched his home and confiscated many Falun Dafa materials. They even arrested his wife and did not release her until the following day. The local policemen sent Fu to the Public Security Bureau of Jilin City, and they in turn transferred Fu to the Third Detention Center of Jilin City. There, the police questioned Fu about the source of his Falun Dafa materials. Because Fu refused to tell them in order to protect his fellow practitioners, the police beat and tortured him mercilessly. With a righteous mind, Fu Chunsheng did not give in and told his vicious captors sternly, "I know the source, but why would I tell you? I won't tell you anything even if you beat me to death."
By midnight on January 1, 2002, the police had beaten Fu to death. After that, they irreverently sent Fu to a hospital for "emergency rescue" and asked a doctor to write a medical certificate claiming Fu died of a heart attack (myocardial infarction). Fu had never shown any signs of heart disease before his arrest. Moreover, he had been perfectly healthy since he started practicing Falun Gong.
Fu Chunsheng's family members did not receive notification of Fu's death until January 3, 2002, though Fu had been beaten to death on January 1. The policemen told Fu's family that Fu "died of a heart attack and had no external wounds." His family members disbelieved this explanation. On January 5, 2002, Fu's family members went to the postmortem room to dress Fu's body. They wanted to check whether there were any external wounds on him to see if Fu had been beaten to death. After removing a torn cotton coat from Fu's head, Fu's family members were shocked by the horrible sight of the corpse. Fu's feet were bare, his hands were bent in a crooked position and his head was swollen. His face and ears were black and blue and blood covered his body. There was blood and some yellow liquid inside his nose and mouth. There was not a single unwounded spot on his torso, back or legs. His eyes were still open and signs of torture were everywhere.
When Fu's family members went to question the director of the Public Security Bureau, he responded indifferently, "This was classified as a natural death according to a legal medical expert's examination." The so-called "postmortem expert," who had cooperated with the police, even added, "These are 'corpse spots.' They are on every dead body, some lighter and some darker." The Public Security Bureau and the legal medical experts tried to cover the facts of Fu's death and even used the term "corpse spots" to try to deceive Fu's family. The director of the Public Security Bureau told Fu's family sardonically, "If you think Fu was beaten to death, you can sue us. We can be defendants. You can go to the court to sue us." Fu's family cried out, "You and the court are the same group. How could we get a fair hearing?" Fu's family members later requested to take a photo of Fu's body. The police stopped them from taking any pictures by threatening them because the Public Security Bureau was afraid that their lies would be exposed and the truth about Fu's death would get out.
Fu Chunsheng, an ordinary Chinese citizen, was beaten to death simply for refusing to give up his faith in Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. Jiang's regime has claimed that they would "ruin Falun Gong's reputation, drain Falun Gong practitioners' financially, and destroy Falun Gong practitioners' bodies." They stated, "[There will be] No punishment for those who beat Falun Gong practitioners to death. If any Falun Gong practitioner is beaten to death, it is to be counted as a suicide."
Fu Chunsheng used his life to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa in order to awaken people's consciences and save them from destroying themselves, while the authorities inhumanely mistreat Falun Gong practitioners for the sake of their positions, power, and material gain.
We are calling for all international human rights organizations to help stop the Jiang regime's torture and killing of Falun Gong practitioners.
