First situation: Some police stations have especially hired women to answer the phone and screen calls.

Receptionist: "This is not the police station, please don't call again." (Some of them may even use bad language.)

Practitioner: "This is the number of the police station, if I am not mistaken. One month ago I called this number. I think you were especially hired since then by the police station to answer the phone, right?"

Receptionist: "Yes."

Practitioner: "It's not good for you to help to answer the phone for the police and curse at other people."

Receptionist: "What do you want to say?"

Practitioner: "I want to tell you the truth."

Receptionist: "I don't want to listen. Don't call again."

Practitioner: "Even so, you shouldn't curse at people."

Receptionist: "What do you want to tell the police?"

Practitioner: "The truth." (I started playing the 4-minute recording "Urgent telephone notice to the people of Changchun.") My guess is that she started recording our conversation. Three minutes later, the phone was disconnected.

Second situation: Some police stations had women that answered, "No, wrong number," and immediately hung up. Then we called again and told her it was an urgent call for the police chief. Then there was no sound. She probably started the recorder. I played the 4-minute recording "Urgent telephone notice to the people of Changchun." It is good to let her record our message.

Third situation: Some policemen picked up the phone and hadn't listened to the truth before. They still listened with patience. This situation is not as common as before.

Fourth situation: Many people have already learned the truth. Oftentimes there is such a situation. When someone picks up the phone, you could hear that there were many people in the background. Someone would say, "Ah, you're Falun Gong, don't say anything. Ah, don't say anything." The tone is kind, but downcast and sorrowful.
