Dafa practitioner Li Shouqiang, male, born on December 2, 1963, was a resident of Wusheng Dongli, Chaoyang District, Beijing. He was an employee of Beijing Automobile General Assembly Plant. He stepped forward many times to validate Dafa and appeal peacefully. He was arrested on March 8, 2000 when he went to appeal on Tiananmen Square and died on March 20, 2000, at the age of 37.

Since April 25, 1999, Dafa has been persecuted by a few evil people in China's Government. Li Shouqiang stepped forward to guard Dafa by writing letters, appealing to authorities and going to Tiananmen Square. On Chinese Lunar New Year's Day (February 16, 2000) this year, Li and his father (a Dafa practitioner) went to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa. He was arrested and detained in Guanzhuang Branch Police Station. Later he was transferred to Panjiayuan Branch Police Station to participate in the so-called "Transformation class". On March 8, 2000, police had a half-day holiday. Li took the opportunity and went to Tiananmen Square with Dafa material. He tried to tell the truth to the government officials during the Chinese People's Congressional session, and tried to let government leaders really understand Dafa. He was arrested again and escorted to his home by three policemen around 10:00 pm on the same day(one of the three policemen was a local policeman named Li Changsheng). The other two police forcibly took all his Dafa materials including Dafa books, cassettes, videotapes, and Master Li's photo. At 11:00 pm, Li Shouqiang was sent to Changping Detention Center where he was interrogated, brutally beaten, and tortured. He was not allowed to drink water. Police plotted to murder him and added a large dose of drugs that affect the central nervous system to Li's Coca Cola. Li was detained for 10 days in this horrible, evil environment.

On the evening of March 18, 2000, Panjiayuan Branch Police Station called Li's family to pick him up from the police station. His elder brother and his mother went there together. Li was detained in an iron cage at that time. On the way back, Li could not speak clearly and said disjointedly: "They (police) fed me drugs, they put drugs in my coke... ... They did not allow me to drink water... ...when I drank, I could not spit it out. They said it would make me die in two days... ... They ask you to pick me up and have me die at home... ... So they don't have any responsibility... ... I should not have gone home, I should die there!" After going home, Li was sometimes clear and sometimes confused. He looked dull and could not think normally. Once, he ran around in the middle of taking shower and others saw lines of brown wounds on the back of his neck, rear waist and on both sides of thighs. Later, he did not eat or drink for two days. On the morning on March 20, 2000, he was in a daze and fell from a balcony, which killed him.

After the incident, the members of the resident committee called the police. A police vehicle with police and two doctors arrived to do the so-called autopsy. One policeman said: "Ah, he was beaten quite hard!" The doctors did not write a single word, not to mention filing an autopsy report. Li's family planned to have his remains cremated and manage related issues locally. The police did not agree and insisted on taking Li's remains to Changping. Later, Sanlitun Branch Police Station called Li's family and asked them to deal with the death-related issues in three days. In order to get more money from Li's family, police did not allow Li's family to put his own clothes on his body but only clothes bought from the police. Li's family endured this insult and followed the police's arrangement. The police forced Li's family to send his remains to be cremated in Changping and buried there, for which Li's family spent more than 10,000 RMB Yuan (US $1,200, about Li's one and half-year's total salary). The government officials persecuted a citizen, directly caused his death and then extorted money from his family, which runs against the heavenly principles! However, this is the real reflection of current China's so-called "People's Police". They are similar to Hitler's Nazi's who killed Jewish people and stole the gold teeth and rings from the dead remains.

An honest, upright, kind young man with high morality died from the state sanctioned persecution in just a few days. The whole process was arranged well, left no trace, and was very "professional". Thus, the incident was "over" quickly. Probably, the police are spending the money in a bar or a restaurant, or looking for their next target. They think that no one knows what they have done, but they should know: "Good will be rewarded with good, evil with evil." Evil people will be punished. No evil people in history escaped the just trial and the righteous people will investigate to the end. Hell is waiting for these evil people that persecute Dafa practitioners!
