Beijing Policemen's Brutality: Stripping Female Practitioners Naked, Putting Them In Snow, Burning Their Private Parts with Cigarettes
I am a female Dafa practitioner from Henan Province. I went to Tiananmen Square at the end of the year 2000 to validate Dafa, and I still can't forget what I witnessed and heard there at that time. I would now like to expose it and use these facts to describe how Jiang's evil political gang of scoundrels and the policemen that Jiang's political group manipulates, use brutal and vicious means to persecute Dafa practitioners.
On December 29, 2000 I went to Beijing with two other Dafa practitioners to appeal on behalf of Falun Dafa. Right after we entered Tiananmen Square, several policemen in plainclothes started questioning us, "Do you have your ID with you?" I said, "No, we camr here to visit." "Get into the car if you don't have your ID!" they shouted, and at the same time they attempted to forcibly drag us into a police car. We refused to cooperate with them and resisted going to the car, so they beat our heads with police batons. As a result, I felt very dizzy and my mouth had blisters from the beating. Eventually they dragged us into the police car. In the car, we took out the Falun emblem banner that we had made and displayed it to the people on the square through the window. The policemen grabbed the Falun emblem. Because there were many Dafa disciples going to Beijing to validate Dafa, including people from Sichuan, Shandong, the Northeast, etc., after a while the police station was full of Dafa disciples. We were sent to the Tiananmen Detention Center. Policemen asked our names and addresses one by one. Those who refused to tell their name and address were sent to the back of the detention center and then dispatched to different detention centers in Beijing.
I was transported with other Dafa practitioners to the Chaoyang District Detention Center in Beijing. On our way, I took out a banner from my sleeve which read "Falun Dafa is Good," and displayed it in the window along with another practitioner. Policemen pulled us back a few times, and then the banner was taken away. What could we do without a banner? Another practitioner told me, "You sit beside the window and shout Falun Dafa is good whenever you see someone outside and then all of us will shout together with you!" Then we started to shout, "Falun Dafa is good!" "Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance) is good!" "Falun Dafa is a righteous Fa!" "Restore our Teacher's reputation!" We kept shouting until we came to the door of the Chaoyang District Detention Center.
When we arrived at the Chaoyang District Detention Center, the policemen asked us to squat down. One practitioner moved a little bit slowly and she was kicked in her lower back by the guard, causing her to almost fall down. We then received physical examinations. All the healthy people were taken to the backyard to have their pictures taken by force. Finally, the policemen ordered the regular criminals made up of drug addicts and prostitutes to take us to a big room where we were stripped naked. All of our money, personal belongings, and Dafa articles were confiscated. In the process, some practitioners were beaten and kicked, and I was slapped twice across the face. After are belongings were confiscated, we were sent to various cells completely naked.
In the evening, the police started interrogating us, and they also questioned me. At that time, my righteous thoughts were quite strong, and I firmly refused to cooperate with the evil. After finishing the interrogation, I was sent back to the cell.
One practitioner who was interrogated during the daytime on the second day was a girl about 20 years old, but because practitioners didn't divulge their names, addresses or ages, we didn't know where this girl was from. This practitioner's clothes were neat, and she looked calm and beautiful before the interrogation. But after she came back from interrogation, her clothes were messed up and her hair was disheveled. She seemed to have changed into another person, and she was seriously hurt physically and mentally. I asked another practitioner what had happened to the girl, and she said, "The police took off all of her clothes and forced her to sit in the snow for 2-3 hours. The most evil thing was that the policemen ordered drug-addicts and prostitutes to burn her private parts with lit cigarettes..." This practitioner was overcome with grief and could not continue to describe the torture that happened to the young girl.
How can it be wrong for a simple and pure girl to live by the principle of "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" and try to be a good person? And the so-called "people's police" order criminals to torture her using such obscene means. After I heard this, my brain was totally blank, tears kept falling, and this incident became an unforgettable memory for me. This is genuine evidence Jiang's declaration of, "The period of the best human rights situation" hypocrisy that "Jiang's gang of scoundrels" attempts to promote to the world.
Several practitioners and I went on a hunger strike for three days to protest the mistreatment and were sent to a very big room where the door was open to the outside. The room was extremely cold, and there were six wooden crosses lying there. The policemen ordered female criminals to remove our coats and pull up our sleeves. Then the policemen, together with the drug-addicts and prostitutes, used adhesive tape to firmly fix our arms onto the "crosses" one by one. They then used ropes to tightly tie our legs onto the bottoms of the "crosses," and then force-fed us using rubber tubes. One evil policeman also stomped on my hands. We were tortured from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., and my two hands still have bruises from that abuse. Another female practitioner's trousers were taken off and she was freezing cold and shaking. One policeman nonetheless walked around her and said obscene words. Still another female practitioner refused to cooperate with them, and they beat her with police batons 40 times on her buttocks. Her buttocks became black and blue and she could not lie down or sit. She asked for help, but the policemen completely ignored her. The food that they gave to Dafa practitioners was yellow steamed bread and vegetable soup that the drug-addicts and prostitutes refused to eat. These are facts of the persecution that took place in Mainland China, and the events exposed here represent only a small percentage of the actual events occurring in China today.
[Author's note] Because I have not cultivated diligently enough, I always waited for other practitioners to expose these persecution facts and announce them to the world, but I have not seen such a report. Therefore I have taken it upon myself to write these experiences today.
