(Clearwisdom.net) Officers of Division One of the Fushun City Police Department of Liaoning Province, have been arresting and persecuting Falun Gong practitioners since July 20, 1999. The perpetrators of these crimes are personally responsible for the deaths of several Falun Gong practitioners, and have also disabled many more. The basement of the Criminal Police Brigade building, which is referred to as the "Small White Building" by local citizens, is where the officers of Division One torture practitioners to coerce their "confessions".

The Murderers of Division One Have Stained Their Hands With the Blood of Falun Gong Practitioners
I. Torturing Falun Gong Practitioners to Death
1. Ms. Li Ying was a Falun Dafa practitioner in Fushun City, Liaoning Province. She lived on Xiuyan Street, Wanghua District. On March 31, 2003, Ms. Li was arrested by police from Division One and suffered severe torture while officers interrogated her. She died after enduring three days of torture.
2. Ms. Wang Xiuxia, was a 42-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner in Qingyuan County, Fushun City, Liaoning Province. On May 29, 2003, more than 20 police officers arrested her. On the evening of June 15, police notified Ms. Wang's family of her death. In 2005, while the officers of Division One brutalized several Dafa practitioners in their custody, they shamelessly shouted, "We beat Wang Xiuxia to death! Go ahead and try to sue us!"
3. Mr. Gai Chunlin was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Bawanggou Village, Nankouqian Town, Qingyuan County, Fushun City. On April 14, 2005, officers from Division One arrested him. On May 6, his family was notified of his death.
It is worth pointing out that although some practitioners passed away in other places, such as detention centers, after they were transferred from Division One, the police in Division One were the ones who were directly involved in arresting and torturing these practitioners. They are therefore directly responsible for these deaths.
II. Severely Injuring Practitioners
1. Mr. Dou Zhenyang and Mr. Wang Hongjun Suffered a Torture Method Called "Penetrating the Forest."
In 2000, Mr. Dou Zhenyang and Mr. Wang Hongjun were falsely charged with attempting to derail a train. The police used a torture method called "penetrating the forest" to torture them. They couldn't withstand the torture, so they confessed to the false charges, and were sentenced to life in prison.
2. Ms. Li Ying (a different practitioner from the Ms. Li Ying mentioned above) was illegally arrested from home in January 2001, just before the Chinese New Year. The police tortured her and caused nerve atrophy on her right arm. She can no longer take care of herself. Later, she was secretly sentenced to 11 years in prison and sent to Dabei Prison. Initially, Dabei Prison refused to accept Ms. Li. After the police officers of Fushun City bribed the prison authorities, they admitted her to the prison, where she has been held to this day.
3. In 2002, Ms. Sun Yongli was arrested along with several other practitioners, including Ms. Wang Xiaoyan, Yan Jun, Wang Shengtao, Zhai Xu, Meng Hua and Zou Shengrong (who was tortured to death). The officers of Division One tortured them ruthlessly. As a result, both of Sun Yongli's legs were disabled, and she is no longer able to walk. She can no longer take care of herself, but the officers of Division One still sent her to the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp.
4. Police officers from Division One arrested Mr. Wang Youcai during a mass arrest in March 2003. They beat his legs so violently that the flesh and bones were separated. His legs were severely swollen. The police brazenly shouted in front of other arrested practitioners, "We are the ones who crippled Wang Youcai."
5. Mr. Zhang Jinsheng is a Falun Gong practitioner from Qingyuan County, Fushun City. In April 200, he was arrested and the police officers of Division One tortured him in an attempt to force him to confess to the false charge of "conspiring with hostile overseas forces." Mr. Zhang Jinsheng's skull was fractured as a result of the torture he endured.
6. Ms. Lu Yan was arrested on March 15, 2005. Four policemen took turns beating her. They put handcuffs and shackles on her and hung her up to beat her, used high-voltage electric batons to shock her, pulled out her hair and stretched her legs sideways to the extreme points until she lost consciousness. Her face was distorted, swollen and black and blue all over. She was partially paralyzed and couldn't move her body. Later, Lu Yan was sentenced to imprisonment.
7. Mr. Zhou Shuyou lived in Beisanjia Township, Qingyuan County. He used to work at the Cangshi Train Station. On the evening of March 21, 2005 officers Guan Yong and Chen Daqing of Division One arrested Mr. Zhou and interrogated him on the evening of April 6. During the interrogation, Guan Yong and Zhang Tao beat him and shocked him with electric batons. Later Guan Yong and other policemen forcefully yanked Mr. Zhou's legs apart and struck him in the genitals. Mr. Zhou's testicle was swollen from the beating, and he was unable to walk. He is still suffering abdominal pain and cannot stand up straight. He is now detained at the Fushun Forced Labor Camp, serving a three-year term.
8. On April 14, 2005, police officers from Division One, working in collusion with officers from the Qingyuan County Police Department, went to Nankouqian Town, Qingyuan County, and arrested 56 Falun Dafa practitioners. The arrested practitioners were interrogated individually, one at a time. Everyone was savagely beaten; even the women, children and elderly practitioners were not spared. Oftentimes, they beat the practitioner being interrogated to the point of unconsciousness, and then they'd douse the practitioner with cold water to revive him or her. A female practitioner fainted on the spot during interrogation. She was immediately sent to the emergency room. She might have died without the emergency medical treatment. Currently, this practitioner is still unable to take care of herself. Police officer Guan Yong beat practitioner Ma Xijun and tortured him with electric shocks until he passed out. For ten days, Ma Xijun suffered nausea and vomited a lot; he couldn't walk and wasn't mentally alert, but his family wasn't notified and allowed to take him home until he was on the verge of death.
9. Mr. Zhang Huiqiang is a senior engineer in the instrument division at the Ethylene Chemical Corporation in Fushun City. On May 23, 2002, police from Division One arrested him at work and used torture to extort a confession from him. The perpetrators burned his hands with a lighter, used the hot metal part of the lighter to burn his nipples, and ripped his fingernails out. Later, he was sentenced to six years of imprisonment in Dabei Prison.
10. The police officers of Division One hammered bamboo sticks under Ms. Miao Shuqing's fingernails and pierced two of her fingers with toothpicks.
