Police Involved in the “Knocking-on-Doors” Issue Come for Help
(Minghui.org) I received a phone call from an officer from the police station of my registered residence in August of this year. He said he was outside my residence and wanted to talk about Falun Gong.
“Jiang Zemin's minions have persecuted Falun Gong for 18 years,” I said. “As someone on the front lines of the persecution, you are well aware that we follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Your leaders, Zhou Yongkang and Li Dongsheng, have been imprisoned. Why do you still harass us?”
As usual, the response was that they were following orders.
I told him, “I have moved. Even if you come to see me, all I can tell you is that 'Falun Dafa is good.' I will not listen to any of your requests, nor will I sign anything. Do you still think that the meeting is necessary?”
He still wanted to see me and hear me say that Falun Dafa is good, so I gave him my address.
Cordial Police Visit
I burned incense before Teacher's picture and asked Teacher to strengthen my righteous thoughts. I asked for his help to do well and not miss this opportunity to tell them the facts about Falun Gong. I sent forth righteous thoughts for a long time to clear away my fear, as well as the resentment and disgust I had developed against them over time.
There were three policemen. I shook hands with them warmly. Then, I saw that one of the officers was videotaping. I quickly stopped smiling and said, “I invited you to my home as my guests. Why are you doing this? It is illegal. Why don't you turn it off?” He complied, and we went upstairs.
After offering tea, I told them that Zhou Yongkang's arrest was a punishment from heaven for his persecuting Falun Gong and that Jiang Zemin would soon receive his punishment too. It is the law of reaping what one sows.
They listened and again stressed that they were only following orders.
I told them that I had been a soldier. Obeying orders came naturally to me. But, one must be able to tell if the orders are legitimate. If one carries out an order that is illegal, one needs to bear responsibility for it. Particularly now, the government has a policy of lifetime accountability concerning important issues.
I told them that they had changed a lot since I last saw them and were no longer aggressive. This meant that they had learned the facts and would treat practitioners nicely. So, I was happy to answer their questions.
They wanted to know why I practiced Falun Gong.
I said, “I served in the military before I was transferred to a civilian company as a manager. I studied at a military academy when I was young. I had a good future. But I developed serious heart problems that forced me to leave. I treated my illnesses for many years and got nowhere.”
I continued, “I began practicing Falun Gong in 1998 and recovered from all my illnesses without any treatment. I have not had any medicine or injections during the past 20 years.”
One officer asked in a roundabout way about the persecution initiated by Jiang Zemin.
I responded, “You are referring to Jiang Zemin's persecution of Falun Gong, practitioners' telling you that heaven will destroy the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and that quitting the CCP will save you. The full truth is that heaven's destroying the CCP is inevitable.”
One officer laughed and said that he did not believe in divine beings. I urged him to change his view, believe the truth that practitioners told him, and quit the CCP.
They then asked me to express my view of the current leaders and the Communist Party's 19th National Congress.
I answered, “The current leaders and regime did not persecute Falun Gong. They don't want to persecute Falun Gong. The persecution that is currently going on is the work of the remaining forces of Jiang Zemin and Zhou Yongkang. Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang [current president and premier] not only did not persecute Falun Gong, but they also arrested Zhou Yongkang and Li Dongsheng. I applaud them on this point alone,” I said. “As for the 19th National Congress, it has nothing to do with us, since practitioners do not get involved in politics.”
I continued, “Although we do not involve ourselves in politics, I know very well what the Party is all about, since my job was in politics when I was in the military. I studied Marxism and Leninism. So I hope you will be clear-minded and not follow in the footsteps of Jiang’s minions.”
“Falun Gong has not been declared a cult by the Ministry of Public Security. This means that the persecution of Falun Gong over the past 18 years has no legal basis. It is against the law.” I showed them the publication by the Ministry of Public Security. They were surprised. I suggested that they read more about it online.
The last question they asked was how my family felt about my practicing Falun Gong.
“Let me answer this,” my wife jumped in. “First, practicing Falun Gong improved his health. Secondly, he no longer has a temper. Just these two points are enough to show that Falun Dafa is good.”
The three police officers smiled, stood up, and left after we shook hands.
