Ms. Shi Xiuzhen and Other Practitioners Arrested to Meet "Olympics Quota" in Jilin Province
(Clearwisdom.net) At around 1:30 p.m. on March 18, 2008, officer Bai Mingku (male) from the Legal Office of the Jiaohe City Police Department and officers from the Xinzhan Town Police Station broke into Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Shi Xiuzhen's home located in Changjia Village, Minzhu Street, Jiaohe City. The police violently beat her, then arrested her and ransacked her home.
At 8:00 p.m. on March 19, 2008, the police ransacked Ms. Shi's home again and broke a lock to open a storage room. Her 78-year-old mother-in-law was also threatened by the police. It is said that these arrests and ransacking of homes is to meet the "Olympics Quota." The police from Jiaohe City 610 Office and Police Department are to arrest at least four Falun Gong practitioners to fulfill their "assigned task."
Ms. Shi Xiuzhen, in her 50s, is a retired employee of the Jiaohe City Bus Company. In September 1998, she was ill, but a diagnosis could not be given in Jiaohe City. On October 23, 1998, Ms. Shi was diagnosed at Jilin Province University Affiliated Hospital in Changchun City as having degeneration of the bones due to bone cancer. Professor Yang Changgeng concluded that her illness was incurable and she would not live past the New Year. Her family carried her home on a stretcher. Not long after that she learned Falun Gong, and her condition improved. After three sleepless months due to pain, she could sleep well without any pain. Gradually she was able to stand and then walk. Ms. Shi became a healthy person after practicing Falun Gong for only four months.
While processing her retirement papers, Ms. Shi's X-rays were examined by a doctor who said, "This is unbelievable! How can you walk? Anyone else would have been paralyzed long ago. Falun Gong has given you a new life!" This miracle strengthened her determination to keep cultivating Falun Gong. She worked hard to be the best person she could be and lived according to the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." She respected her mother-in-law and was kind to everyone. Her family lived in peace and harmony.
It is said that the Village Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Secretary went to Ms. Shi's home right before the arrest occurred. Not long after the secretary left her place, a black vehicle without license plates arrived at her home. Four plainclothes officers stormed into Ms. Shi's yard, beat her brutally, and confiscated her TV, a satellite dish, two cell phones, her residence registration, her ID, an MP3 player, e-books, Falun Dafa books, and many bank books. She was taken into custody and is being held at in the Jiaohe City Criminal Ward. They failed to arrest her husband, who also practices Falun Gong. He is employed at the Broadcasting Bureau. However, he had been forced to leave home to avoid being arrested. Ms. Shi's mother-in-law is now at home alone.
The Party's notification to intensify the persecution of Falun Gong in the run-up to the Olympics has now been passed down to the lowest levels of government, the neighborhood administrations. Two days after Ms. Shi was arrested and her husband forced to leave home, at around 8:00 or 9:00 p.m. on March 20, 2008, the police arrested practitioners Ms. Zhang Min and her husband, Liu Zhongchun, who were house sitting for others. The police also arrested Ms. Li Jinghua. The three practitioners are in custody at the Chang'an Street Police Station. On the morning of March 21, 2008, Ms. Chang Guiyun and Mr. Yuan (given name unknown) from Songjiang Town were arrested in a computer store. Mr. Yuan was released on March 22.
