Mr. Zhang Guochen, 33 years old, is a worker in Tangshan City's Kaiping District in Hebei Province. In January 2001 he was illegally sentenced to two years of imprisonment due to appealing for Falun Dafa in Beijing and was detained at Tangshan City's Detention Center. Zhang Guochen staged a hunger strike to resist the persecution. Several policemen beat him up. He was shocked with electric batons and twice "tied with ropes"* as punishment for reading Master's articles. As he was very determined in his faith in Dafa, he was taken to a brainwashing class far away from his place of residence. After 40 days of inhumane torture he was so emaciated that police had to send him back by car. Once, he and several other practitioners shouted pro-Dafa slogans in a meeting slandering Dafa, and as a result, he was beaten up and his detention term was extended. In February 2003, after his detention term had expired, he was illegally held in his workplace and not allowed to go back home.

For those practitioners who did not cooperate, policemen forcibly pried their doors open. Longtan District's Yushugou Police Precinct persons ransacked every practitioner's house.

What is the most vicious about her is her extremely cruel force-feeding of practitioners with a great amount of saline solution. She even accused those practitioners whom she tortured to the point of twitching and death that they were pretending. She simply ignored those who were diagnosed with diseases and said that there was no problem.
[China] Get Rid of the Attachment to Fear; Let's Walk Well the Last Part of the Fa-Rectification Path
A police officer in Mainland China told a Dafa practitioner this story: during the three-day Lantern Festival this year, while he and his colleagues were on duty, when they saw Dafa practitioners distributing truth-clarifying materials in an open and dignified manner, they didn't do anything because they knew that Dafa is good. Later they saw two female Dafa practitioners looking a little scared while distributing materials. They took them to the police station, hoping the two can clarify the truth about Falun Gong to them. The practitioners, though, didn't even say a word for several hours. The police officers let them go with their materials, but expressed pity that they didn't hear any stories about Falun Gong.
* Please Note:
- "Tying the ropes": The police tie up the practitioner with a thin rope, circle the rope around his neck, and tie his hands behind his back. Then the police would use all the force they could muster to tighten the rope. The rope becomes tighter and tighter around the body of the practitioner, and makes it more and more difficult for him to breathe. There are instances when the rope was tightened enough to break a practitioner's arm.
- The "610 Office" is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute powers over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems."
- These "guarantee statements" compel the practitioner to sign his name on a piece of paper that states s/he will give up the practice of Falun Dafa and is remorseful for ever having practiced; promises never to go to Beijing to appeal and divulge all the names and addresses of fellow practitioners.
