(Minghui.org) I went out after lunch one day last year to advise people that they should quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations, and to tell them the facts about Falun Gong.

I helped one person quit the CCP and was ready to leave when several people with red armbands surrounded me and pulled me off my bike. They shouted and called the police. Then, they pushed me into a police car and I was taken to a nearby police station.

A police officer took me into an office. He asked me to respond to several questions. Before he could begin interrogating me, I told him the facts about Falun Gong and asked him to quit the CCP. He was amazed by my confident attitude and didn't ask any question or take notes. Then, an officer with the surname of Zhao walked in.

No Reward for Arresting Practitioners

Zhao greeted me by my name, Lao Wang, and asked me why I was at the police station. The other officer told him that I was reported by several people wearing red armbands.

Zhao told him that he had known me for a long time: “He used to be in poor health and became healthy after he practiced Falun Gong. I know him and he is a good person. Let me handle this.”

Zhao walked out to talk to those in red armbands. He inquired, “Why did you bring in this practitioner?” They responded, “He was on the street and asked people to quit the CCP, so we arrested him.”

Zhao replied, “Falun Gong people are there every day and ask people to quit the party. How can you catch them all? You guys get out of here!"

In fact, these people came to the police station because they expected a reward. Speechless, they looked at each other and left dejectedly.

Zhao returned and told me to go home now and to be careful. I told him to quit the party; he said that he had noted my words.

This was totally unexpected. A couple of years ago, Zhao used to be one of the worst perpetrators of the persecution. He had beaten many practitioners, including me. Now, after he understood the truth – that Falun Dafa is an upright cultivation practice that should not be persecuted – he has made amends and protects practitioners.

Crowd Protects Practitioner

In mid-December 2014 Ms. Li was distributing DVDs with informational materials about Falun Gong, including the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.

Seven or eight people were there. She handed DVDs to them and told them about Falun Gong, how it is a good practice, and how it is being brutally persecuted. Suddenly two undercover police showed up and attempted to arrest Ms. Li. She resisted.

Quickly, people in the crowd stepped forward and blocked the undercover police. One shouted, “Ms. Li, please run away, be quick!” These people understood the facts about Falun Gong and knew that it is wrong to persecute practitioners.

With the help from the crowd, Ms. Li safely left.
