Domestic Security Team Leader Thanks Practitioner
(Minghui.org) My wife and I went to visit my brother this May. On our way back, we were illegally searched by police at a security checkpoint of the train station. As soon as they swiped her identification, information about her practicing Dafa showed on her records. The officers pulled her to the side.
Our family members looked worried, and I turned around to see what happened. The officers then took us both into the office. They searched my backpack and found Dafa books and other materials inside. They took pictures to use as evidence against us.
I thought, “Practitioners are good people. Dafa books are for teaching people to be good by following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The informational materials are for saving people. They shouldn't be used as proof of a ‘criminal offense.’ We should not acknowledge any harassment or persecution from the evil. Since I am here, I will let them know the facts.”
So the battle began to unfold between good and evil.
“What law or regulation did I violate?” I asked.
The officer who took the written notes said, “Falun Gong.”
“What law or regulation does Falun Gong violate? Can you please show me?”
Other officers on site heard our conversion and began to mumble, but it seemed that they could not show us anything.
“Okay,” I said. “Then please show me the relevant legal documentation. After I read them over, I'll be ready to answer your questions.”
One officer made a phone call to his supervisor.
An hour later, they still could not show any legal proof. They contacted a nearby police station and took us there. At the station, a female officer began to chat with us and had a fairly good attitude. She mentioned that she first learned about Falun Gong back in 2000 and that she still didn't have a negative attitude toward it. We were able to carry out our conversation in a much more relaxed way.
The commander came in, so we began to clarify the facts to him. He raised two questions: the first was about the staged self-immolation incident on Tiananmen Square; the second was why Jiang Zemin, the former Chinese leader, wanted to persecute Falun Gong. I answered his questions clearly. He understood and then left.
After that, the team leader of the Domestic Security Division came in.
“I know some people your age, who are also in their 70s, and who are still able to think as logically as you. But it is very rare,” he said. “Jiang Zemin stepped down about 14 years ago. How come the government policy hasn't really changed toward Falun Gong?”
“In 2002, before Jiang stepped down, what concerned him the most was the Falun Gong issue,” I said. “Jiang launched the persecution of Falun Gong and also forced other high-level officials to agree to it. There was no legal grounds for the persecution, so he tried all means to prevent the Falun Gong issue from being redressed.”
After that, I gave a few more examples of how Jiang had the military under his control, so he was still in power behind the scenes. Only after Xi Jinping took power did the situation change dramatically. The government began to fight corruption and move toward a more law-abiding society.
As a result, in 2013 the labor camp system was abandoned. Some regulations also came up. For example, in 2015 the regime stated that every legal case would be registered and processed, leading to the movement to sue Jiang Zemin by victims in China and abroad.
Under Teacher's empowerment during our conversation, I felt that my mind was clear and my thoughts were very logical. I sincerely advised the team leader not to participate in the persecution so that he could have a bright future.
After the team leader finished listening to me, he pressed his hands together in front of his chest—a gesture of respect—and thanked me. When I asked him to return the Dafa books to us, he asked me if he could first have a look at them himself.
In the end, he had someone take both my wife and me to the train station. He came as well and saw us off there. My wife and I soon arrived home safe and sound. When our friends heard about our experience, they were shocked as well as pleasantly surprised!
I knew that it was our benevolent Teacher safeguarding us all the way; it was our wonderful Teacher who gave us wisdom so that we were able to save those who have persecuted practitioners but still have one last chance to be saved—in this case, the police officers.
