In November 2002, police in Chengdu City committed another kidnapping and extortion. Here are the details: Police had earlier tailed a Falun Gong practitioner who lives at Qinglongchang and followed him home. On November 8, personnel from the No.1 Section of Chengdu City's Police Department suddenly broke into this practitioner's residence. They forcibly pried the door open and confiscated some truth-clarifying materials. As the practitioner was not present, they ransacked everything in the room -- clothes, bedding and cleaning equipment. They then took the landlord, a gentleman by the last name of Luo, away. The personnel at the Qinglongchang Police Station coerced the landlord's family to submit 10,000-Yuan cash if they wanted him back. In addition, they would not allow the landlord to rent out his house in the future and even forced him to evict other tenants living in his house. (The average monthly income in Chinese urban areas is 500 Yuan; in rural areas it is 200 Yuan).

[China] Teachers and Students Feel Antipathy Toward Watching Slanderous Film
Several days ago a Dafa practitioner who had been forced to leave home to received a letter from his child who was away at secondary school. In the letter the child said, "Their despicable means would never fool me. Not only me but also all the teachers and students were against the school forcibly organizing us to watch a film slandering Dafa. That afternoon before we went to the cinema, the teacher in charge of my class said, 'Alas! We should not watch the film. With such good weather, we should rather go out and play.' After the film began, students were still talking with each other and no one watched the film at all. Several students even used laser pointers to aim at the so-called scientist who became famous by selling himself for political gain. And the teachers just stood by, doing nothing."
