I was shocked to learn on the Minghui website about a talented Qinghua University student named Ms. Liu Zhimei. She was persecuted to insanity in a prison under the Chinese communist regime. I witnessed other practitioners being persecuted while I was imprisoned over the last few years. I recall two in particular.
1. A Kind Female Peasant Became Completely Insane after Being Tortured
Ms. Chen Xiaoyue, 60, is from Rushan, Weihai City, Shandong Province.
When I was held in the Second Women's Forced Labour Camp of Shandong from 2001 to 2004, we stayed together for a brief period of time.
-Falun Gong improves her life
She was pessimistic, easily angered, and wanted to commit suicide before she practised Falun Gong. Fearing that she might kill herself, her husband had to take leave before his service ended. He was a soldier stationed far from home. After she began to practise Falun Gong, she became optimistic, kind, and gentle and was very respectful of her in-laws. They lived together in harmony under one roof.
When another practitioner in the village was taken into custody, Ms. Chen selflessly tended the practitioner's field. After the practitioner was released, she was happy to see that all the crops had done well. Due to Ms. Chen's help, she did not have any losses. Ms. Chen was also very hospitable to practitioners who delivered leaflets exposing the persecution of Falun Gong to her from other villages.
-Brainwashed by the authorities
Later on, Ms. Chen was arrested and sent to a forced labour camp for clarifying the facts to people and advising them to live good lives. Due to the intense persecution, Ms. Chen was “reformed” [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] by the communist regime and gave up her faith in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The police then forced her to help reform other practitioners and torture them if they refused to cooperate.
Practitioners yearn for kindness and inner peace. Imagine the torment to their conscience if they are forced to persecute their fellow practitioners!
After she was forced to follow police orders, her bad temper quickly returned, and she became very irritable. When she was with me, she would recall her fellow practitioners. They had listened to Falun Gong lectures together. She would then smile at the good memories.
-Forced to persecute other practitioners
During the first half of 2004, Ms. Yang Wenjie, a practitioner from Zhaoyuan City, was held in a solitary cell. Police chief Chen Suping ordered several inmates to hit her. Sun Jieying, one of the inmates, later quietly told me that the beating of Ms. Yang was very brutal and she did not want to watch it.
According to Sun, Ms. Yang was handcuffed to a Death Bed1. The police then ordered her to grab Ms. Yang by the hair and bang her head against the bed railing. Sun refused to do it. Chen Suping shouted at her, “Take her away! Get another one.” But no one wanted to hit Ms. Yang. Then Chen ordered Ms. Chen Xiaoyue to hit her.
Poor Ms. Chen had been detained in solitary for a long time. She was already mentally incapacitated by the time she was taken out and ordered to hit Ms. Yang. Ms. Chen ran down the hallway, shouting, “All of you will be sorry you listened to Li Hongzhi [the founder of Falun Gong]. If you do not 'reform,' you will die.” When I was folding the bed sheet in the cell, she came in and said, “Please rescue me!”
Ms. Chen Xiaoyue was taken to Jinan City for a checkup and diagnosed with "manic psychosis." A few days later, she was released. According to a practitioner from Weihai City, the local 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) did not spare Ms. Chen even after she was released. The agents from the 610 Office attempted to take her to a brainwashing centre, but she refused to go. One night, her psychotic symptoms recurred, and she almost strangled her husband in bed.
2. Forced to Eat Faeces, a Practitioner Becomes Mentally Disordered
Ms. Tang Xiumei is a practitioner from Weifang City. One night, I heard a sharp scream from one of the supervision units. The next morning, guard Song Hong came to the office and lied to us, saying, “There is a practitioner eating her own faeces. Officer Li Xi was on duty and saw it. She has lost her appetite for days. Now she cannot come to work.”
A few days later, I was told by an inmate who had witnessed Ms. Tang being locked in a solitary cell. She was not allowed to use the bathroom. Officer Li Xi ordered her to tear a Falun Gong book in exchange for use of the toilet. Ms. Tang refused to do it. Li then made her eat her own faeces. After that, Ms. Tang became mentally disordered.
The Nazi regime took the lives of many people, but the Chinese Communist Party has been destroying people's conscience and humanity and "transforming" them into ghosts.
1. "Death Bed" torture: A practitioner is tied to a bed with his hands handcuffed above his head to the bed rails, and his legs tied with thin nylon ropes. The rope is then tightly wrapped around the practitioner's body and the bed, from his legs to his chest. The rope is wrapped so tightly that the practitioner has difficulty breathing and eventually loses consciousness.
