[Jiutai City, Jilin Province]
The Education Brigade of Jiutai Forced Labour Camp applied a number of methods to torture the Falun Dafa practitioners detained there. Common tools include electric batons, police truncheons, and the "Dead Person' Bed" ["Dead Person' Bed" or "Big Letter Board:" This torture technique is used to torture practitioners who have gone on hunger strike to protest their mistreatment and illegal detention. Practitioners who are on hunger strike are tied to the "Dead Person' Bed" so that their hands and feet can' move. Jail guards and prisoners then attempt to force-feed through the nose. The guards and prisoners are often untrained in such a procedure, resulting in the deaths of many practitioners.]
The painful screams of practitioners can often be heard in cells near the torturing place, but the practitioners face the evil and use their great forbearance and compassion to move and clarify the truth to people while in detention. Through their contact with practitioners, many criminals have realised the truth and now don' believe the lies and the staged news programmes that slander Falun Dafa. Some criminal inmates have begun to take the practitioners' side and either openly or secretly speak up for them. The evil forces therefore devised another persecution ploy and published a policy of rewards to encourage criminal inmates to torture practitioners. Criminals who betrayed their conscience and followed these instructions were rewarded by the guards with points (points are directly related to early release in the Chinese prison system). For example, guards awarded 15 points to Zhu Yonggang and four other criminals every month and let them torture practitioners who didn' sign the so-called "Break-away letter" [whereby the practitioner renounces Falun Dafa]. Zhu Yonggong was completely irrational and was encouraged by the policy that "beating to death will count as a practitioner committing suicide.
