This is the fate of not practicing Falun Gong, if this man practice Falun Gong, he would not be such a punishment. Master Li's Falun Dafa have infinite power ,it will protect the disciples from harm.

You have to be joking. The news is that a human being was killed. A nameless "unidentified male" to you is someone else's loved one.

What a jerk.

The post below by fanting11 is bogus. As a long-standing practitioner of Falun Gong in the UK, this is a tactic used by Chinese Communist Party agents in a further effort to slander Falun Gong to aide their 11-year long illegal persecution of the practice. For any queries or questions pertaining to Falun Gong please contact a bona fide practitioner from the Falun Gong Association DafaEnglish@Faluninfo.net. Many thanks, Joanna.
