(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioners Zhang Xiaochen and Zhang Bo from Houshuikou Village, Dianbu Township, Laixi City, Shandong Province, were being monitored by local police officers. The police saw the two practitioners hanging up Falun Dafa banners, and in their vehicles, the policemen chased the practitioners, who were riding motorcycles. After a short while, the policemen started to shoot at the two practitioners. Many villagers heard the shots, awakening them to the harsh reality of Jiang's orders: "Kill them without mercy" and "Any death will be counted as a suicide."

The policemen then caused the two practitioners to crash into a ditch. Zhang Xiaochen, bleeding from his nose and mouth, was arrested. Zhang Bo managed to escape. Instead of going home, he went to a practitioner's home in another town. The following morning the police arrested Zhang Bo there. They also ransacked the other practitioner's home, taking with them a color television, VCR, motorcycle, and other valuables. The police might have discovered Zhang Bo's whereabouts by tapping his home phone, because Zhang Bo had called the practitioner the night before.

The two practitioners have been brutally beaten numerous times while in police custody. The police recently disclosed that Zhang Xiaochen has a head injury without giving any further details. The two practitioners are still being held at the Laixi City Detention Center, where they have been for the past 40 days.

Kind-hearted people, make sure that you understand what is right and what is wrong. Falun Dafa practitioners are telling you with all their heart about the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," and that Falun Dafa is good and righteous. To cherish the practitioners is to cherish you own being. One day, you will understand.
