At around 8:00 p.m. on March 5th, 2002, Falun Gong videos exposing the persecution including "Falun Dafa Around the World," and "Self-immolation or Staged Act?" were broadcast for about fifty minutes on eight channels of the Changchun City cable TV network. The Changchun City Cable TV Network Company has 300,000 subscribers and more than one million viewers. The incident created shock waves in the public, and many people learned the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong. Jiang Zemin, who started the persecution, was frightened and issued a secret order "kill [those responsible for the incident] without pardon." Soon, police officers from Jilin Province arrested more than 5,000 Falun Gong practitioners in Changchun City. During the arrest, at least six Falun Gong practitioners were beaten to death, and fifteen practitioners were sentenced to between four years and twenty years in prison.
|March 2002 - detained Falun Gong practitioner Lei Ming|
Thirty year-old Dafa practitioner Lei Ming lived in Baishan City, Jilin Province. In order to explain the true situation of Falun Dafa to people deceived by the CCP's propaganda, on March 5th, 2002, Lei Ming and other Dafa practitioners broadcast Falun Gong videos exposing the persecution in Changchun City. Police arrested him and savagely tortured him after Jiang Zemin issued the secret order, "kill without pardon." Lei Ming was unlawfully sentenced to seventeen years in prison by the Changchun City Intermediate Court. He was sent to Jilin Prison, where he was barbarically tortured for two years until he was on the brink of death. In 2004, Lei Ming was released on medical parole but was disabled from torture. Currently his muscles are still atrophied and he cannot walk, nor can he take care of himself.
Cruel Tortures at the Changchun City Police Department
Lei Ming was taken to the Qingming Street Police Station on March 5th, 2002. Within less than one hour many officers from the Changchun City Police Department came to Qingming Street Police Station. They put Lei Ming in a car and drove him to the Changchun City Police Department, took him to a room on the sixth floor, and tied him to a iron chair. The metal iron chair is much taller than a regular chair; one needs assistance to get on it. After he sit on the bench, Lei Ming's feet were off the ground and affixed to the legs of the torture device. A metal bar was inserted through the two holes on both arms of the chair and pressed tightly against Lei Ming's abdomen. The police officers locked the metal bar in place and handcuffed Lei Ming's hands behind his back to the back of the chair. One officer suddenly shocked the back of Lei Ming's neck with an electric baton with a sharp tip. [The photo below is a re-enactment of the torture by Falun Gong practitioners]
