This is the final part of a series of articles exposing the crimes of police in Yilan County, Heilongjiang Province against detained Falun Gong practitioners.
16. "Pasting Wallpaper"
The police force practitioners to face the wall and stand as close as possible to the wall with their arms up against it for a long time period. The police also instigate inmates to torment practitioners who are on hunger strikes with this torture. If the practitioners resist, they are forced to the wall and brutally beaten. This type of torture causes severe muscle pain, swelling in the arms, paralysis and pain in the legs and feet. It can also cause dizziness and confusion (Fig. 26).
17. Locking up the Throat
The police direct criminals to use their fists and forcefully punch the practitioner's throat or use their fingers to tightly choke a practitioner's neck so that the practitioner is in severe pain and can't talk (Fig. 27).
The police force practitioners to squat with their feet apart and their bodies bent down while their arms are stretched out in front of them. Practitioners are forced to stay in this position for a long time period, which causes the muscles to ache and the whole body to tremble. (Fig. 28).
19. Standing on One Leg
The police instigate inmates to force practitioners who are on a hunger strike to stand on one leg for a long time period. If the practitioners resist, they are brutally beaten (Fig. 29).
20. Squatting on One Leg
Police instigate criminal inmates to force practitioners who are on hunger strike to squat on one leg for a long time period. If the practitioners resist, they are brutally beaten (Fig. 30).
21. "Flying an Airplane" (also known as "Flying" or "Sticking Up")
Policeman Lin Zhong directs inmates to force practitioners to face the wall and bend their heads down until they cannot go down any further. They then pull the hands up and force the practitioners to hold them at the highest point against the wall. Practitioners are forced to hold this position unchanged for a long time period. Some practitioners were forced to put their heads into the toilet while in the "flying" position. If practitioners do not obey, they suffer cruel beatings and other types of humiliation. This torture causes paralysis of the practitioner's feet and severe pain in the arms. It also causes dizziness, waist, spine and ankle pain, and can cause the body to tremble (Fig. 31 and Fig. 32).

22. Choking with a Towel
Policeman Lin Zhong instigates inmates to use a towel to wrap around the practitioner's neck to suffocate the practitioner. One inmate pulls the two ends of the towel to tighten it with full strength, while other inmates either tightly hold onto the practitioner's body to not let him or her move, or they brutally beat the practitioner. The practitioner is usually choked until his or her face turns dark-purple and the tongue is sticking out. Mr. Song Ruiyi suffered this as well as other tortures that included being cruelly beaten. He passed away soon after his release because of all the torture he suffered in prison (Fig. 33).
