Illustrations of Torture Methods Used to Persecute Falun Gong Practitioners (Part IV)
Torture Illustration 28: Injected with Anti-Psychotic Drugs as Torture
Some practitioners were sent to mental hospitals, even though they were mentally very healthy. The practitioners were injected with drugs that damage the nervous system, and some suffered mental collapses resulting from this torture. When practitioners asked the officials of the mental hospitals why they were doing this, they replied, "We have no choice, Jiang ordered us to do so."
Torture Illustration 29: Sexual Abuse
The police shock female practitioners' breasts and genitals with electric batons, and even insert electrical batons into the practitioners' vaginas to shock them. Even unmarried female practitioners have been subjected to this torture.
Torture Illustration 30: Rape or Group Rape
One police officer, or a group of officers, rape female practitioners.
Torture Illustration 31: Locked to a Ground Ring
A steel ring is secured to the ground. The handcuffs, shackles, and the ground ring are then tied together to a lock on the floor. Under such torture, the victim can only sit, and is unable to lie down. The police often lock practitioners this way for several consecutive days. When the practitioners need to use the bathroom or eat meals, they require the help of other people. In the winter time, the victim is not allowed to wear warm clothes.
Normally many people collapse under such torture in no more than two weeks.
Torture Illustration 32: Intentional Suffocation
The police put a plastic bag over the Falun Gong practitioner's head so that he or she cannot breathe. Then they kick and beat the person while shocking him or her with electric batons. This torture technique is extremely cruel, and the victims tortured in this way can easily die from suffocation.

This torture method was used in early 2002, in the Xuchang City No. 3 Forced Labor Camp in Henan Province. The practitioner was deprived of sleep, with prisoners monitoring him around the clock. If the practitioner dozed off, the torturer would pull the thin string, causing severe injuries to the practitioner.
Torture Illustration 34: "Roast Whole Lamb"
This torture method was used in Xuchang City's No. 3 Forced Labor Camp in Henan Province. After the torture, the practitioner was unable to leave the bed for several months. The wound filled with pus and festered.

Torture Illustration 37: "Tying with Rope"
This torture method is used at Shibalihe Women's Forced Labor Camp in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. The practitioner's arms are tied tightly with thin nylon string behind the back, and the string is tied so tight that it cuts into the practitioner's flesh. The practitioner is forced to squat with lower legs positioned vertical with the ground. The torturer inserts a wooden stick below the practitioners' upper arms, causing excruciating pain. The practitioner is deprived of sleep for several days. Some practitioners urinate blood after enduring this torture, but they are nonetheless not released.
