(Minghui.org) Mr. Li Zewen from Pingdu City, Shandong Province was arrested on October 19, 2015 for telling the public about the persecution of Falun Dafa in Shahe Town, Laiyang City.
Based on a tip from a worker who heard Mr. Li, two Shahe police officers arrested Mr. Li. At the police station, officers performed a body search and took his watch, cell phone, and cash.
Mr. Li maintained that practicing Falun Dafa is his constitutional right, and that Falun Dafa teaches people to be improve their morality.
Police removed his handcuffs at 3 p.m., so he could use the toilet. One young officer said, “You Falun Dafa practitioners are really determined.”
Back from the toilet break, Mr. Li asked the officers not to use handcuffs, but they refused. After Mr. Li continued defending his innocence, seven officers punched and slapped him. One of them landed a heavy blow on his jaw and knocked him unconscious.
After Mr. Li woke up, he told the officers, “I did not do anything illegal. You should not treat practitioners this way. You should stop doing evil for your own good.”
An officer told him at 4 p.m., “You can go now. Come back tomorrow.” Mr. Li replied, “I am not coming back. What you did is illegal.”
An officer smiled and said on his way to the front entrance, “You should stay home and read your books.”
At the time of writing, Mr. Li’s left shoulder still had a big bruise.
