Released from Detention with Strong Righteous Thoughts
(Minghui.org) I have been illegally arrested four times since the persecution of Falun Dafa began in 1999. My most recent arrest was for filing a criminal complaint against former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin, who initiated the persecution that resulted in my arrests, wrongful imprisonment, and being tortured for my belief.
At that time, the local police took me to a detention center to detain me for five days. There were many people at the gate of the center, so I took the opportunity to let them know about the unjust persecution by saying, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and abide by the principles of Truthiness-Compassion-Forbearance. You are following Jiang Zemin to persecute innocent people. How will you face your own conscience?”
Inside the dentition center, I saw people being bullied, insulted, harassed, and shoved by the guards. I said, “I won't allow you to insult me in those ways even if you beat me to death.”
A short while later, the deputy director of the detention center approached me and asked, “Did you develop heart-disease?” When I answered no, he then asked, “Did you get a blood pressure reading?” I replied I hadn't, so he told me to quickly go get my blood pressure checked.
After getting my blood pressure results, the guard on duty said, “Go back home now.” I was taken aback, but realized that the deputy director had released me.
On my way home, I continued to tell the police officers about the practice and the persecution. One of them said, “I really admire Falun Dafa practitioners like you! We are indeed cowards.”
