(Clearwisdom.net) In China today, people are spreading the following phrase: "In the past, bandits were found in remote mountains. Now they are found in the Public Security System." Some people even refer to them as the "evil police". We have to think about who turned the police, whose job is to protect the safety of the people, into bandits.

The brutal crimes committed against the appealers, discharged workers, people with different views [from the government], and especially the plight of Falun Gong practitioners are being exposed to the world. The facts are also widely being disseminated throughout China, and more and more people are beginning to realize the evil deeds done by Jiang's faction.

During the 5-year persecution of Falun Gong, those policemen used as beating and killing machines under the Jiang regime's policy of genocide are the direct murderers. To this day, they have tortured 1038 Falun Gong practitioners to death. Hundreds of thousands of practitioners have been illegally sent to labor camps. Thousands of others have been illegally sentenced to prison. Even more practitioners have been kidnapped, brainwashed, or forced to leave home. Those who have been affected are more than 100 million. So many people are still suffering from the persecution. How can they easily forget this?

In launching the crackdown against Falun Gong, Jiang's faction has brutally attacked practitioners who live by the principle "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" making those principles illegal. On the other hand, the crackdown has promoted widespread corruption, lack of restraint among the police, and an atmosphere of terror which has destroyed the remaining bit of morality in many people's hearts. It took advantage of some policemen's and officials' selfish desire and their greedy pursuit of money and power, and combined this with threats and inducements to manipulate them to betray their conscience and help a tyrant do evil.

Jiang's faction connects economic interests and job security to the degree of cruelty demonstrated against Falun Gong practitioners. There is a detailed list in terms of how much of a bonus award a policeman can achieve for forcing practitioners to renounce Falun Gong, arresting practitioners, etc. On the other hand, if practitioners go to Beijing to appeal, certain officials in that region will lose their jobs, etc. Jiang's circle's secret orders such as the "death of Falun Gong practitioners from beating is nothing and shall be counted as suicide," "the body shall be directly cremated without investigating the person's identification," gave many wrongdoing police a false sense of security. They then totally disregarded the law, justice and their consciences, using the excuse of "following higher authority's orders." As long as there is a profit to be made for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, they ignore the real criminal cases such as murder and arson, but beat, arrest, ransack, fine, kidnap, brainwash, and torture the innocent practitioners, to the extent that they stop at no evil. When questioned by practitioners, many police say words to the effect of, "Jiang pays me, so if he wants me to kill people, I kill."

Every day in these past five years, there has been news of the brutal persecution of practitioners coming from Mainland China. In labor camps, prisons or police stations, in order to achieve a good "transformation rate" [1] and earn bonuses, many police brutally torture innocent practitioners. From the list of cases that are continually being exposed, one can see the over 100 cruel torture methods used which include electric shocks, burning, Tiger Bench, [2] digging sharp bamboo sticks into the fingers, etc. Many don't want to believe it, but this is truly happening in China every day.

The notorious Su Jing, director of the infamous Masanjia Forced Labor Camp once ordered 18 female Falun Gong practitioners to be thrown naked into a men's cell. She is largely responsible for many of the cruel deaths suffered by practitioners there. Yet, she is favored by Jiang Zemin. Along with being proclaimed a model leader and receiving large bonuses, she has also given many lectures sharing her experiences on the methods of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.

Of course, there are many fair police officers at various levels of China's law enforcement, and they have refused to join this brutality. Some even try to help the oppressed resist the persecution and they will be remembered favorably in history. As for those police who followed Jiang and joined the persecution, their fate is assured as well. Despite the cover-ups and elaborate excuses, history will ultimately hold them responsible for all that they have done.


[1] Transformation rate: This refers to the number of people who are "transformed" by being forced to give up their practice of Falun Gong.

[2] Tiger bench: Prisoners are forced to sit on a small iron bench that is approximately 20 cm (6 inches) tall with their knees tied together. With their hands tied behind their backs or sometimes placed on their knees, they are forced to sit straight up and look straight ahead without movement for long periods of time.
