Beijing Regime Ringleaders Reward Police Crimes
(Clearwisdom.net) Beijing's Communist Party Committee and the Municipal Government have rewarded police officers who participated in persecuting Falun Gong. On top of huge expenditures to build forced labor camps and prisons, the ringleaders have provided all-expense-paid tours, and subsidies for housing, as well as pay raises, to reward police officers employed in labor camps and prisons. The material rewards are considered enticements to continue committing crimes against Falun Gong.
The Beijing forced labor camp and prison system officers were handsomely compensated in 2007. The monthly base salary for team heads was 3,800 yuan, and the average monthly overtime and duty pay was 1,000 yuan. On each of the four major holidays, New Years, Chinese New Year, May 1, and October 1, team heads were paid an extra 1,000 yuan as holiday pay. In addition, each police officer was issued 8,000 yuan merit pay in 2007. Counting all the extras, a team head' s collective average monthly salary was up to 5,800 yuan in 2007. Heads of middle teams and divisions made even more.
To intensify the persecution of Falun Gong, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) established incentives in 1999, to solicit police support. Forced labor camp and prison administrative levels were raised to Deputy-Bureau Level from the Division Level, thus raising police officers' salary ranks accordingly. The depraved communist regime used tax-payer's money to finance their persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and rights activists.
Beijing's forced labor camp and prison system police officers also enjoy favorable housing benefits. Most police officers have at least two apartments in the Daxing District's Tuanhe, Tiantanghe, Xinanli, Xinjuli residential complexes that belong to the Beijing Forced Labor and Prison Administration, meaning they are regime-owned. Certain police officers own three, four or even more apartments they rent out for 2,000-3,000 yuan extra monthly income. The officers can also buy these apartments at rock-bottom prices. In the Xinanli Complex, a two-bedroom apartment sold for only 80,000 yuan. The same sized apartment in the Xinanli, Xinjuli, Tuanhe and Tiantanghe complexes is now worth as much as 400,000 yuan, according to information from police relatives. Their homes in the city are worth even more.
In early 2009, Beijing City regime leaders built a "Legal System Housing Complex" in the Daxing District, located adjacent to the Xinhe Forced Labor Camp, next to the Xinanli and Xinjuli Complexes. The new housing complex, each consisting of dozens of buildings, was sold to police officers working in the Beijing political and legal systems. Many police officers from the forced labor camp and prison systems bought units.
Officers in Beijing joined yearly, all-expense-paid seven-day sightseeing tours, representing an additional bonus, on top of an annual vacation. On December 22-27, 2008, thirty-three police officers went to Xiamen City for the third segment in the Beijing Prison System's annual tour. In March 2009, the Beijing Forced Labor Camp System organized the administration and labor camp employees into two tour groups. Several dozen people went to Chongqing for a week-long sightseeing excursion. The current economic crisis had no impact on them. Taxpayers' money paid all their expenses.
Why does the Chinese Communist regime compensate police officers so lavishly? For having made great contributions to society? For outstanding personal performance? Not so! Prior to the communist-ordered onset of the persecution of Falun Gong, working in Beijing's forced labor camps and prisons was not a good job. Police officers' salaries were not high, and not that different from other workers in Beijing. But after 1999, Beijing went on a heavy spending spree to build labor camps and prisons. Two camps were built in Daxing District alone - the Xinhe and Xinan Forced Labor Camps. Daxing now has six labor camps, as well as the Tuanhe Labor Detainees Dispatch Division, as well as two prisons - the Beijing Prison and Beijing Women's Prison, along with one detention center.
In the recent years, depraved regime ringleaders not only gave police officers huge pay raises.. Raises were also given to all personnel in public security, the armed police, the military and [certain] regime employees. But there was little change in other common workers' incomes. The gap between the rich and poor in China is widening. What is the purpose of this new policy? A citizen said, "Such high income is an incentive to suppress the people."
Many police officers and government employees, lured by the regime's monetary rewards and urgings, have contributed to the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners against their conscience, although they know that Falun Gong practitioners are good people. Chinese people are now keenly aware that workers and peasants who create the source of social wealth are not at all at the soul of China--they are indeed slaves.
Regime ringleaders dangle a financial carrot - handsomely rewarding police brutality of Falun Gong practitioners. The head of Masanjia Forced Labor Camp received a one-time award of 50,000 yuan for her role in persecuting Falun Gong. Another incident, reported on the Minghui website, described a policeman who received 50,000 yuan for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.
During the peak persecution era, the Chinese Communist regime used one quarter of the state's resources in the persecution of Falun Gong, and handsomely rewarded its persecutors, particularly police agents. It also praised as "heroes," those officers who died from karmic retribution due to their acts of persecuting Falun Gong.
As an example, Zhao Zhenjin was a political head at the Huanghai Road Police Station, at the Dalian Business Development District Police Department. Falun Gong practitioners had approached him to clarify the truth to him. He refused to listen, and continued persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. One day after an angry quarrel with his wife, Zhao stormed out and went to his office, where he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest and died, at age 55. On October 25, 2006, China's Personnel Ministry and Ministry of Public Security named the late policeman as a "China Public Security System First Class Hero." But as expected, the regime's story of Zhao's death is different - to make themselves shine. According to CCP propaganda, "On September 9, 2009, due to fatigue from overwork, comrade Zhao Zhenjin suffered from sudden cardiac arrest. Maximum efforts at the hospital failed to revive him. He died a heroic death at 9:23 p.m. while carrying out his duty." Zhao was named a posthumous "hero model." The regime also awarded his wife over a million yuan, as the Minghui website previously exposed. The whole fiasco was designed to fool people, as well as police officers and their families. It was also an effort to cover up for persecuting Falun Gong, and to conceal that many police officers had been punished by karmic retribution. Such propaganda was to encourage the police to continue committing their crimes against Falun Gong.
