Cover Your Mouth When You Yawn

You want some boring old dog-bites-man? “A 46-year-old resident of Henan province who was abducted in March 2009 while talking to people in public about Falun Gong died in Zhengzhou prison camp last month . . .” Who was this dead kook? “Mr. Tian Yun was from Houguolei Village of Henan in Central China.” And what happened?

Shortly after being detained on March 27, 2009, Tian was “sentenced” in a sham trial at Hui County Court to three years in a prison camp. He was subsequently taken to Zhengzhou Prison in Xinmin. According to sources inside China, Tian was beaten, shocked with electric batons, and deprived of water at the prison camp. The camp guards tried to force Tian to denounce Falun Gong but he refused. He continued to be tortured and died in custody as a result of the abuse.

Being a ChiCom means being able to torture and kill at will — while the world simpers at your feet.
