Police Officer Zhou Zhong Continues to Persecute Falun Gong Practitioners in Zhucheng City
(Minghui.org) Zhou Zhong and a police officer surnamed Jiao recently led several officers from the Chenggezhuang Police Station in Zhucheng City to go door to door to local Falun Gong practitioners' homes to interrogate and harass them. They arrested Ms. Zheng Xizhen and confiscated her Falun Gong books, a printer and other personal belongings.
Ms. Zheng was detained in the Chenggezhuang Police Station for two days before she was transferred to the Zhucheng City Domestic Security Division. She was handcuffed and held in an office. The police informed her family to come to visit her and bring 10,000 yuan in ransom money.
On the fifth night, Ms. Zheng escaped from the Domestic Security Division. Zhou Zhong and others are searching for her.
Since 2003, Zhou Zhong and officers from the Domestic Security Division have gone to local Falun Gong practitioners' homes or workplaces to arrest them and confiscate their personal belongings. They detained the practitioners and then extorted money from their families before releasing them. If the practitioners couldn't afford the ransom money, they were sentenced to prison or forced labor.
On December 31, 2006, when Zhou Zhong and others were driving to Jinan, their car crashed. Zhou Zhong's vertebrae and arms were injured, but the driver and others were unscathed.
After Zhou Zhong recovered from his injuries, he was transferred to the Chenggezhuang Town Police Station. He continued persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. He often broke into local practitioners' homes and ransacked them. Many practitioners were held in the Zhucheng Detention Center for more than a month, and each of them had between 8,000 to 10,000 yuan extorted from them.
On the afternoon of April 28, 2008, Zhou Zhong, who was drunk at the time, drove out of the Chenggezhuang Police Station along with four other police officers. When they arrived at a village, their car collided with a large truck, and rolled underneath it. Four people were seriously injured and the car was demolished.
After experiencing two serious car accidents, Zhou Zhong still did not wake up and pay attention to the warnings. He continued persecuting Falun Gong, arresting practitioners and extorting their money. Local people became indignant and condemned the criminal deeds committed by CCP agents.
