Teenage Boy Shocked with Electric Baton and Severely Beaten  
Print  E-mail 


Men Ying and Men Long are sister and brother. They are teenage Falun Gong practitioners from Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province.


On November 16, 2000, they went to Tiananmen Square to appeal to the central government to stop persecuting Falun Gong. Several police officers grabbed their banner that read “Falun Gong Is Good,” and beat them.


The police officers dispersed the crowd that had gathered. Using extreme force, they dragged the practitioners to a police van and took them to the Tiananmen Police Station. At that time, 30 practitioners were detained there. At midnight, the practitioners were transferred to the Anshun Police Station. Men Long was sent alone to a secret room. Several police officers then took turns severely beating this teenage boy. They stripped off his clothes and forced him to stand on the cement floor, which was covered with cold water. They poured cold water down his body, exposed him to a cold wind, and beat him with a leather belt all over his body.


After beating him, the officers prepared another basin of cold water. They forced Men Long to put his hands in the water, and then put an electric baton in the water to shock him. When he took his hands out of the water, the officers handcuffed his hands behind his back and beat him viciously. The police officers even said, “If you still do not give up practicing Falun Gong, we will beat your penis until it is useless.”


Then these police officers forced an electric baton into Men Long’s mouth and shocked him, rendering him unable to speak for several days. Later, they transferred him to the Tongzhou Detention Center of Beijing. There, the police officers instigated two prisoners to beat his face with their shoes; they stopped only when they were exhausted. When the police officers took Men Long out of the detention center, a policeman stomped on his chest very hard. Finally, they handed him to police officers from Shuangcheng City. He had been beaten so severely that he could not walk and had to be carried by others.


In just two days, the police had turned a healthy young boy into an unrecognizable one who could not even walk on his own.
