Police and People in China Help Falun Gong Practitioners

October 07, 2015

(Minghui.org) Although the persecution of Falun Gong is still rampant across some areas in China, in other locales police and Chinese people are quietly making efforts to support Falun Gong, after realizing that practitioners are good people and how brutal the persecution is.

The following are some examples that illustrate the changes in attitudes people have demonstrated across different regions of China.

A practitioner in Heilongjiang Province chatted with an elderly man about Falun Gong at a local market. The man told the practitioner that his family had also been persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and he had been held in a forced labor camp where he suffered a great deal.

The man’s son works at a local police station. The man said he told his son to release as many arrested Falun Gong practitioners as possible because they are good people. He also told his son that the CCP is corrupt and that it orders the police to persecute good people.

Policeman Feels Protected After Quitting the CCP

Patrolling police arrested two practitioners who were talking to people about Falun Gong. The practitioners spoke to the officer who was assigned to watch them at the police station about Falun Gong and the persecution.

The officer told them that he knew that Falun Gong is good. He had quit the Party when an overseas practitioner called the station. “My life became easier after I quit the Party,” he told the practitioners, “I am protected.”

He told them he and his partner were traveling on a business trip when they had a car accident and the car flipped over. His partner was severely injured but he had no injuries at all. “Falun Gong is amazing,” he said.

The police captain who was doing the paperwork for the practitioners then told them he would call an acquaintance at the detention center and ask him not to give them a hard time.

Clearing Away Misconceptions

A practitioner took some fliers about Falun Gong to the local market one morning. A man in his 50’s called the practitioner over. Although the practitioner didn’t recognize the man they chatted anyway.

The man said the practitioner had given him a DVD about Falun Gong a few years ago. “I didn’t quite agree with you at the beginning, because I didn’t think the CCP is as bad as the DVD said,” he told the practitioner.

The man said he had gradually come to understand the content of the DVD and he realized that the Communist Party is totally corrupt. “Falun Gong is doing the right thing against the Communist Party,” the man said.

The practitioner told him that practitioners were not supposed to get involved in politics. “We just want to tell people what Falun Gong is and why the Party persecutes Falun Gong,” the practitioner said.

The practitioner gave the man two new DVDs about Falun Gong. The man happily accepted the DVDs and said he wanted to talk with the practitioner about Falun Gong next time.

The same practitioner talked to a man selling vegetables at the market and gave the man a Shen Yun DVD. The practitioner then changed the topic.

“What do you think about Falun Gong?” the practitioner asked the man.

“Falun Gong is so powerful,” the man exclaimed, “They have pulled down the Communist Party.”

The practitioner told him that Falun Gong didn’t pull the party down. The party destroyed itself by persecuting good people. “What goes around comes around,” the practitioner told the man, and he agreed.

The practitioner went back to see the man the following morning and helped him quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

Sichuan Police Officer: “That Pamphlet Scares Me. Everything in It Is True.”

September 28, 2015 | By a Falun Gong practitioner in Sichuan Province, China

(Minghui.org) An elderly female Falun Gong practitioner went to a farmers’ market to distribute truth-clarification materials in the afternoon on June 10, 2015.

Several security guards saw her and decided to take her to the police. She told them why she was distributing the materials and offered them a DVD. She also told them that Zhou Yongkang (a former high-ranking Chinese Communist Party – CCP – official) is serving a life sentence for persecuting Falun Gong. But they refused to listen and insisted on taking her to the police station.

When officers at the police station saw her being brought in, they looked in her bag and found DVD’s and pamphlets. One officer said, “Let me look at this more closely.” Each officer took a pamphlet about the crimes committed by Zhou Yongkang and Jiang Zemin (former head of the CCP) and began reading. Some of them took a DVD and went back to their offices.

After some time, one officer came back and said, “My goodness, that pamphlet is scary. Everything in it is true.”

The officer in charge of confiscated items told me that he did not submit the materials to his superior. Instead, he told each officer to take some home.

After all the materials were taken, the officer called the practitioner’s family and asked them to come and take her home.

Local Police Choose to Protect Falun Gong Practitioners

September 19, 2015 | By a Falun Gong practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) For over sixteen years, Falun Gong practitioners in China have been resisting the persecution. Many police officers in our area have stopped participating in the suppression, and some have even chosen to protect practitioners.

Police Chief: Practitioners Are Good People

A few years ago, a new chief was appointed to the local police station. He responded to many calls about Falun Gong practitioners from people conditioned to do so by the Communist Party’s propaganda, but he never had the practitioners arrested.

In one instance, he drove to a practitioner’s home and said, “This is the first time I’ve been to your home, but I know you. Someone reported you once before. I drove to where you were and parked. I saw you posting and distributing materials, but pretended I didn’t see you.”

“Today, I want to make friends with you. I am letting you know that this is my first official home visit and also the last. Do you know why? I know Falun Gong practitioners are all good people. Therefore, my rule is not to trouble Falun Gong.”

Officers Refuse to Arrest Practitioners

A while ago, the local 610 Office ordered the police to arrest practitioners on their blacklist.

A local police officer used to persecute practitioners, but they did not hold a grudge against him. They only patiently told him why the persecution was happening and how Falun Gong is far from how it’s portrayed in the government’s propaganda. They explained that practitioners do their best to live by the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”

When the officer was ordered to arrest practitioners in his patrol area, he refused. “They are good people. Why should we arrest them? I won’t do it.”

His superior replied, “If you don’t want to, I’ll find others to do it.” The officer warned the practitioners ahead of time, and they were able to avoid arrest.
