(Minghui.org) A Henan resident visiting Shandong was greeted with police brutality for refusing to renounce Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.

Mr. Li Maitun from Yuzhou City, Henan Province was arrested in Zaozhuang City, Shandong Province on August 2 of this year, after being reported to police for talking to locals about Falun Gong.

The elderly man, nearly 70, was brutally beaten during police interrogation. He firmly refused to give up Falun Gong, and was then brought to a restroom with no surveillance camera. Two officers, one of them a deputy chief of the police station, rolled their leather shoes against his thighs back and forth.

Mr. Li screamed in pain, but the deputy chief exclaimed, “I don’t care even if you die! At most we will just give your family a bit of compensation!”

Mr. Li is being held at Taierzhuang Detention Center.
