Ms. Sun Shuxiang from Changchun City, Jilin Province on the Verge of Death Due to Torture
(Clearwisdom.net) One evening in October 2006, Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Sun Shuxiang from Changchun City, Jilin Province, visited another practitioner. She was arrested by police who were lying in wait for her. The policemen grabbed her backpack and confiscated her address book, cell phone and more than 500 yuan. She was first taken to the Changchun City Economic Development Zone Police Division and later to the Changchun City Number Three Detention Center. Nine days later, she was illegally sentenced for a year and six months of forced labor. Because she was already in critical health condition the guards at the forced labor camp did not accept her.
Two months later, before she had completely recovered, she was again arrested when out for a walk and taken to the Hongqi Street Police Station in Changchun City. Police confiscated the three Falun Dafa books and truth-clarification materials she had on her. Police from the Chaoyang District Police Sub-Station and Changchun City Police Station interrogated her. One policeman who had tortured her with an electronic baton before yelled, "Tell me where you have been and who gave you these CDs!" Then the policemen surrounded her. One started pulling her hair out. Others tried to make her to sit on Teacher's picture. She refused. Then the police slapped her face. Blood came out of her mouth. Her lips became swollen. Then, the police director asked for a rope. They tied her arms tightly to the back of a chair. A policeman moved her legs so they would reach her head. The great pain made her unable to breathe. Then he put her legs back. She was tortured like this repeatedly. The torture lasted for the entire night, but she refused to cooperate.
The next day, they took a picture for her. A policeman pulled her hair and knocked her head against the wall. Then the police tried to take her fingerprints. She refused to cooperate. The police started twisting her arms. She screamed from the pain. The police did not stop torturing her until they had taken her fingerprints. She was then taken to the Changchun City Number Three Detention Center for more torture.
The torture of practitioners at the Number Three Detention Center was very brutal. On her second day, she was force-fed. She heard beating and screaming from the next cell. The inmates told her that the guards was asking some inmates to press tooth picks into practitioner's nails. Sometimes the guards covered practitioner's head with a plastic bag (for details of this torture, please check http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/11/17/54624.html). Screams of pain could be heard every night. After being force-fed for a week, Ms. Sun Shuxiang was in critical condition. She was taken to the Police Hospital. There, she was taken into the Emergency Room twice the first night. She kept vomiting and passing blood. Her heart beat was 170 per minute and her voice was very weak. And sometimes she went into a coma.
Her family asked that she be released. But, the hospital refused and did it allow them to see her. Then, the police went to her home and tried to extort money. Her family did not have money. So, the police did not release her. After more than twenty days, despite being on the verge of death, police at the Changchun City Police Station sentenced her to a year and six months of forced labor. She was taken to the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp, Changchun City. However, staff at the forced labor camp did not dare to accept her given her health condition. Therefore, she was finally released.
