Mr. Feng Kui Sentenced to Life in Prison after Being Shot
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 5, 2011, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Feng Kui was arrested and shot in Shuangchengbao Town, Siping City, Jilin Province. His left ear was injured when Shuangchengbao Town Police Station deputy director Zhang Zhengpeng and officer Wang Ping opened fire on him. Mr. Feng's wife, Ms. Song Xiuwei; Mr. Zhao Baoshan; and Mr. Yang Bin were arrested at the same time. All four practitioners were sentenced: Mr. Feng was given a life sentence, Ms. Song and Mr. Zhao were given five-year sentences, and Mr. Yang was give a three-year sentence.
On June 5, the four practitioners were distributing Shen Yun DVDs in the Shuangchengbao Town Market. Mr. Feng broke free from the officers from the Shuangchengbao Town Police Station, but found himself in a dead-end alley. During the ensuing chase, police shot him as he ran, and he lost consciousness. A stab wound in his right cheek bled profusely, and his head, neck, and right hand were covered in blood.
According to the police, Mr. Feng was taken to the Gongzhuling Detention Center; Ms. Song, to Siping Women's Prison; Mr. Zhao, to the Changchun Second Detention Center; and Mr. Yang, to the Changchun Third Detention Center.
Officers from the Luyuan Police Sub-Bureau, the Gongzhuling Domestic Security Team, and four other police stations ransacked Mr. Feng's and Mr. Zhao's residences. Mr. Yang's car was also confiscated by the Gongzhuling Police Department.
Mr. Feng was a strong and healthy man but is now emaciated. His wounds have not yet healed. He disagrees with the court's sentencing decision and is requesting an appeal.
After Mr. Feng was shot, the police began spreading lies about the incident. According to the laws governing the police, officers cannot open fire at will in the course of their duty unless their lives are endangered by the criminal suspect. This incident is a significant example of police officers violating the law.
