These policemen then broke down the door. From the start, they beat and kicked Mr. Chen while they dragged him out and forced him into their van. Policemen pulled Mr. Chen and at the same time cursed, "We will beat you, the stubborn Falun Gong member to death when we go back today." When Mr. Chen was dragged into the van, they shoved him face down under the seat, and police held him down with one foot on his body. Witnesses to this event were numerous as the policemen were quite loud, causing a big disturbance.

Later I had to write down what I wanted to say. Political chief Li Shuhuan ordered four to five people to carry me to the hospital.

Afterward, police would write a guarantee statement and force Dafa practitioners to stamp their fingerprints on it.

She said, "The most regrettable thing is that I cannot get a copy of Zhuan Falun [The main book of Falun Dafa]."
