(Minghui.org) The director of the local police station had been involved in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners for years. After I was released from prison in 2006, I went to see him to clarify the facts about Falun Gong.

I also asked for a prison release document, so that I could return to my previous work. The first question he asked me was whether I still practiced Falun Gong.

“I survived numerous torture methods, which reinforced and strengthened my belief in Falun Gong,” I told him.

He shouted, “These torture methods are not strong enough. I will have you killed if you don't change your mind!”

It was shocking to hear that. What a miserable life! I waited until he was alone with me and said, “The persecution against Falun Gong practitioners is also persecuting you. Do you know why?”

“The persecution is not legal. Have you, as the director of this police station, received any orders in writing when it comes to persecuting practitioners, or were they all verbal orders?”

I continued, “Article 54 in the Civil Servant Law indicates explicitly that civil servants are held legally responsible for actions and orders that are against existing laws. Since there are no laws enacted that state that practicing Falun Gong is illegal, the persecution of practitioners is unlawful and individuals are held accountable for such persecutory actions.”

I then asked him if he would arrest and take me to a prison without orders from his supervisors?. He replied that he would not do so.

“Right. That is your knowing side that knows what's right and wrong.”

“Against your conscience, you have become a tool manipulated by others to harm innocent people. Isn't that sad? Now, people who follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are tortured and imprisoned. Organs are harvested from living practitioners. This is a crime. Don't you feel guilty?”

“When I first arrived at the prison, inmates that were under criminal detention for murder threatened to torture me without mercy and said that I would not leave the prison alive. They were following the warden's orders. When I left the prison four years later, some inmates shouted 'Falun Gong is good' to show that they were convinced about the beauty of Falun Gong and my steadfast belief. It was a miracle that I had survived the torture without compromising my belief.”

“I could have taken revenge on those that persecuted me. There were techniques I had learned from being locked up with murderers.”

“But I did not yield in my belief of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I talked about Falun Gong so the criminals would stop committing evil deeds and avoid a disastrous future. My Master said,”

“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in spring.” (“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos” from Hong Yin Volume II)

“You will continue to receive orders requiring you to persecute practitioners. But, I believe you can apply different strategies to protect practitioners, and follow your conscience. Do not do or say anything bad about Falun Gong anymore. Obviously, I am telling you this for your own good.”

He nodded constantly. I heard that he had changed jobs to avoid being held responsible for the persecution of practitioners shortly after we had our talk.

I am hoping that individuals working in the legal enforcement system can follow the example of the police station director – protect practitioners and withdraw your membership from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. It will bring you a bright future and peace of mind.
