Because I am a Falun Gong practitioner, and in late 1999, I spoke up for Falun Gong, I was arrested by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) police and sent to a prison in northern China. When the guard put me in a cell, he told the head prisoner: "This Falun Gong practitioner's court hearing will be televised. Don't hit him for the time being." In other words, if I wasn't going be on TV, they would beat me. They pretended to be lenient because they were afraid that I would expose their criminal acts during the court proceedings. The head prisoner was a local man. Because he was an underworld member, he had been arrested and sentenced to five years in jail.

After the head prisoner asked me a few questions, he told me, "I won't hit you. However, you still have to go through the rest of the procedure. You will have to go out into the windy field after taking a cold shower first." He ordered one of the inmates to fetch a bucket of water. After I took off all my clothes, the inmate started pouring cold water over my body using a plastic cup. He knew that I am a highly-educated person, and possibly for this reason, he showed me some lenience. Instead of slowly dousing my body with the cold water, he did it quickly and finished in fifteen minutes. He said, "If the guard didn't say anything, this bath would last at least thirty minutes." At that time, the room temperature was about minus five degrees Celsius (23 degrees F).

I was regarded by the guards as a "die-hard" element, and as such, they didn't want to detain me with other Falun Gong practitioners. They were afraid that I had access to information from the outside world that could be passed to the imprisoned practitioners. So because more practitioners were being arrested and more cells were needed to hold them, the police put non-practitioner inmates in my cell.

Recently, there was a "hide-and-seek" incident that took place in China. Many people still don't know why the head prisoner beat some inmates to death, but none of the guards seemed to care. On the contrary, they tried to cover up the crimes. In fact, when a new person comes into the center, the head prisoner will use a variety of tactics to extort money out of him. When his family brings in the required money, it is put into his account. The money is supposed to be used for food, but out of the $1,000 his family brings in, only about $300 to $400 is spent on food. The rest is shared by the head prisoner and the guards.

Over the past decade, many practitioners have died because of the constant persecution, because the tyrannical CCP, under Jiang Zemin, has ordered its local governments to forcibly "transform" Falun Gong practitioners. The CCP has said that such deaths are to be counted as suicides, and no domestic media is allowed to report on these deaths or the persecution.

One day, as I was about to leave my cell, I saw that a criminal inmate who was sentenced to death was pulled from his cell and shot. When the head prisoner saw the scene, he looked as if there was something on his mind. Later, he seemed to be in a bad mood. I asked him, "Did you know that man?" He said, "No!" "Then why are you so depressed?" He shook his head and didn't answer me.

That night, he came to me and whispered, "I am very regretful. If only I was more ruthless and I had killed someone before I was sentenced, I would be out of here, too." I was very shocked and asked, "Are you crazy? How's it possible that you could get out of here if you are sentenced to the death penalty?" He said, "You know nothing. My boss is a high-level government official in the local political consultative conference. There is a rule in the underworld, if I help my boss do something, like beating up or killing someone, and if I am arrested, my boss will keep paying my salary while I am in jail. After I come out, I can still work for him. If I am sentenced to the death penalty, my boss will "buy" someone to die for me." I was very curious and asked, "How does your boss buy someone to die for you?" He replied, "Take my case as an example. There were four people involved, I am the third-place defendant. The first two are prisoners who have been sentenced to death. I am sentenced to five years and the fourth one to three years.

"The first two culprits in my case are not immediately pulled out and shot. They have an appeal period. During this period of time, my boss makes a deal with the detention center. He will pay $3,000,000 to "buy" two lives (This was the market price in 1999). The detention center will then go to a shelter to find two vagrants or beggars who have no identities. They pay the shelter a few thousand or ten thousand dollars. Since there are many people in there, the people who run it don't mind handing over two people in return for the money. Thus, the poor vagrants or beggars will be taken to the detention center. They are called the "little fat goats." On the day of execution, the guard orders the "little fat goats" to come to the office, and gives them an injection. After that, they immediately become speechless and vague, but they can still walk. The guards then go to the cell and take the two inmates who are supposed to be executed to the office and tell them to get changed. The people who go to the execution site are indeed the "little fat goats." After the inmates are disguised as police officers, they will be escorted to the back door where a person sent by their boss is ready to pick them up. After leaving the detention center, they are sent to southern China where they will live normal lives under different names.

I asked, "How about the prosecutor and execution site personnel? Don't they have to examine the bodies and verify that they are the correct people ?" He said, "You are really stupid. The $3,000,000 doesn't all belong to the detention center. That money is shared by the police, prosecutor, judge, and everyone else involved. Even the family gets a share." "Why is that?" I asked him.

"The family knows that the person who is executed is not their loved one, but a substitute. When the family goes to pick up the corpse, they tell the doctors that they want to sell his organs. They can sell them for tens of thousands of dollars." I was so shocked, "My goodness! The CCP is so wicked. They treat the pitiful Chinese people as pigs, killing them and selling their organs at will." I have also learned that the CCP treats the Falun Gong practitioners even more viciously. They harvest their organs while they are still alive.

Since the CCP's harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners' organs was exposed to the world, they have tried to cover up the fact, saying to the public that the organs were taken from executed prisoners, in an attempt to divert the attention of the international community. Nevertheless, Heaven is watching. So not only can't the CCP explain the original sources of the large number of living organs, but also their dirty transactions of "buying lives" in detention centers are exposed. Lies can't be concealed. The CCP's harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners' organs will be fully revealed one day in the near future.
