Changtu County Police in Liaoning Province Panic and Flee After Brutally Gang Beating a Female Practitioner
(Clearwisdom.net) Feng Bailin and Hou Wenge are the Jinjia Town assistant police chiefs in Changtu County, Tieling City, Liaoning Province. On February 3, 2002, at around 9:00 p.m., they were driving around in a vehicle, hunting for Falun Dafa practitioners who had distributed truth-clarifying materials. They constantly pursue practitioners in Changtu County, all the way to Bajiazi Village in Daxing Town. In the course one such chase, Bajiazi Village practitioner Ms. Zhai Shuzhen tripped and fell, whereupon Feng Bailin, Hou Wenge, and a few accomplices brutally beat Ms. Zhai about her head and body with steel clubs and wooden bats. When Ms. Zhai suddenly passed out, they assumed that they had beaten her to death. In a panic, they all piled into the vehicle and sped away from the scene of the crime.
Upon regaining consciousness, Ms. Zhai slowly and arduously crawled home. When her family saw her, they realized that she had been severely beaten, and was at the very brink of death. They rushed her to Changtu County First People's Hospital, where x-rays revealed four fractured ribs on her left side that were causing severe bleeding into the pleural cavity, and a collapsed lung. Ms Zhai underwent surgery to remove the fluid from her chest cavity. She required hospitalization for eleven days, which contributed to a bill for over 6,000 Yuan in medical expenses [500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China]. Finally, she had to leave the hospital early because she could not afford to remain there. Due to the severity of the beating, Zhai Shuzhen still endures lingering symptoms of chronic dizziness and headaches that are sometimes severe enough to cause her to lose consciousness. Her family is distraught over her condition.
