Tangshan Domestic Security Police Arrest Six Falun Gong Practitioners
(Clearwisdom.net) On May 28, 2011, approximately eight officers from the Tangshan Domestic Security and Diaoyutai Police Station in Hebei Province broke into the home of Ms. Cao, a retiree from the Electricity Factory. The police took Ms. Cao, her personal property, her husband, and four other family members to the Fujiatun Police Station. The next afternoon, five of them were transferred to the Tangshan Detention Center.
Ms. Cao was entertaining guests at home at around 3:00 p.m. on May 28, 2011, when someone knocked at the door, and pretending to be her neighbor, complained about her toilet leaking. Ms. Cao's husband said there was no leak at all. The police outside covered the security peep hole so people inside couldn't see who was knocking. The elderly couple opened the door and about eight police officers broke in and said somebody reported that Ms. Cao was holding a party. Ms. Cao questioned the police, “You don’t have permission to break into my home. You tricked us into opening the door for you. Please show us your ID.” The police searched the entire home and took away the computer, printer, Falun Dafa books, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other Dafa materials, Master’s picture and 800 yuan in cash. They later called for officers from the local police station to bring the confiscated items and the group of six people to the Fujiatun Police Station. Ms. Cao’s husband was released that night.
At the Fujiatun Police Station, a police officer was taking notes. He gave orders to detain Ms. Cao for 15 days and detain the other four Falun Gong practitioners, including Mr. Li Qiang and his father in-law, Li Guocai, along with the other two female practitioners for ten days. He then asked them to sign his note. The practitioners refused to sign because they believed they were innocent.
The officer, Zhang, was very ferocious. He shouted at the practitioners, “Don’t even dream about getting out!” The practitioners smiled at him, “What you say does not count!” Officer He Tao and the director of the police station put on gloves to take blood samples from the practitioners. The practitioners immediately pointed out, “Why are you going to take our blood? Is it to use in organ harvesting?”
The fingerprints and blood samples of some practitioners were forcibly taken, and the practitioners were photographed.
At around noon on May 29, five practitioners were put in the Tangshan Detention Center. Ms. Caos’ blood pressure reached as high as 260, and she was taken to the Ankang Hospital for a checkup. Her two blood pressure measurements were as high as 250 and the doctor was very surprised.
The 68 year-old Ms. Cao told them of her personal experience benefiting from practicing Falun Gong. At around 4:00 p.m., the police from Fujiatun Police Station released Ms. Cao to go home, after being held for two days and one night.
According to her neighbors, a police officer from the Fujiatun Police Station who lives in the same building as Ms. Cao often parked his car in front of Ms. Cao’s door. There was recent police undercover monitoring downstairs.
Those involved include officers from the National Security Team in Lubei, Tangshan City, and a few officers from the Diaoyutai Police Station who persecute Falun Gong frequently.
