(Clearwisdom.net) At around 9 a.m., May 23, 2008, I passed by the Street Neighborhood Council of Fengyutan in Shenhe District, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. I witnessed six policemen arrest three practitioners.

There were many people surrounding the neighborhood council. I approached them to see what was happening. I saw a young man pushed into a police car and a policeman guarding him. A young policeman grabbed an old lady by the arms and dragged her around. The old lady pointed to the young man in the police car and said, "Let my son get out of the car. My son does not practice Falun Gong. Why did you arrest him?" The officer said, "As long as your son is with you, we will arrest him."

After a couple of minutes, another police car came by and stopped near the old lady. The policeman pushed her roughly towards the car. She resisted getting into the car and asked, "Why are you arresting me?" He answered, "To ask you some questions." She said, "What kind of law did I break? I practice Falun Gong, but I did not do anything wrong. How can you arrest me? Whatever you want to ask, just ask me here, in front of all these people." The policeman said, "I will ask you after you get into the car." The old lady said, "There is no need for me to get into the car, just ask me here."

The old lady turned around and saw two policemen pushing another old lady, her relative, into a police car. "Why are you arresting my relative? Leave her alone!" The policemen said, "She was with you. Whoever is with you, we will arrest them as well." They lifted her relative into the car. The old lady asked, "You are arresting people so casually. Do you have ID?" One policeman showed her his police ID and said, "We are from the Shenhe Branch of the Police Department."

The police pushed and dragged the old lady into the police car and took her away. We don't know where they went.

After the police left, I heard people around me saying, "That practitioner lives nearby. She had just left her home with her son to do some business, then she got arrested. These policemen are crazy! They not only illegally arrest Falun Gong practitioners, but also arrest anyone with practitioners!"

Others said, "The Chinese Communist Party only exercises its power over common people. This kind of suppression will definitely make many people indignant."
