[China] The Righteous Mind of A Paralyzed Senior Man
A senior man, who has been paralyzed for over ten years, always carried a tape-player with him. During the already 18 months of suppression of Falun Gong carried out by Jiang Zemin, this senior man was suspicious about the news reported from the government. Why has the government put in so much effort to crack down on Falun Gong while ignoring the corruption in the party? He felt it was necessary for him to learn more about Falun Gong. So he asked his son to find the audio-tapes of "Master Li Hongzhi's lecture in Jinan [City, Shandong Province]". He listened to the tapes everyday. He was totally convinced by the great connotation of Falun Dafa. He told his son, "There is nothing wrong with 'Truth, Compassion and Tolerance.' Why would they prohibit people from being a good person while they themselves keep on corrupting the country? Is it a sin to become a good person?"

[Yantai City, Shandong Province] Middle School Students Were Doubtful About the Lies
After the Spring Festival, all working units in Yantai City received yet another directive from "higher level of government" to study the "Self-Immolation Event" collectively. Even the students in school had to do the same. However, recently something happened in a middle school in Yantai City that made people ponder about this. When a teacher talked about the "Self-Immolation Accident in Tiananmen Square," in accordance to what the mass media propagated, she said that Falun Gong practitioners put themselves on fire. At the moment, a student raised his hand and asked a question, "Teacher, I can't understand one thing. There are two aunties (kindly older women) in my neighborhood who practice Falun Gong. I know their cross-legged posture. If the self-immolated person also practices Falun Gong, why is his cross-legged posture not correct?" While the teacher kept silent, another student asked, "Teacher, don't they inspect the passengers very strictly to ensure no inflammable material is brought on the train? How could those people have brought gasoline to Beijing?" This led to a heated discussion in the class. The teacher's face became flushed and the teacher didn't know what to say.

On January 21, a distant relative of a practitioner (who has not been unable to stay at home for more than one year) visited his home from the Shijiazhuang Railway Sub-Bureau Office. He stayed for a long time. Finally, a family member of the practitioner questioned him whether he is a special agent. He finally told the truth. "I will be promoted and get rich if I can catch a Falun Gong practitioner." His assignment is to watch the passengers on the trains traveling between Shijiazhuang and Shanghai trains. He usually inquired around and tried to find any Falun Gong practitioner. Once a Falun Gong practitioner was identified, he would arrest the practitioner illegally.

This is another crime conducted by the head monster, Jiang Zemin, in his persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners and the people.
The special agent's employee ID number is 990755, issued by Shijiazhuang Railway Sub-Bureau Office. Please take special note of this situation.
