Helping Police in China Change Their Attitude Toward Dafa
(Minghui.org) Usually when I clarify the truth, I don't pick specific people to talk to—I talk to everyone. The only ones I put extra effort into, however, are police officers, because they have been deceived the most and have caused practitioners direct and lasting harm.
I feel that those who are still causing harm while also refusing to listen to the actual situation regarding the persecution are the saddest. They will suffer terrible retribution for persecuting the Buddha Fa and the people who practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Because of that, we have a great responsibility to help these people come to clearer understandings.
Even if police officers were following me, watching me, or running into me by chance, I’ve rarely missed the opportunity to talk to them about Falun Dafa, in hopes the knowledge will help them stop committing crimes against humanity. I inform them for their own good.
With wisdom Master has given me, I can easily identify plainclothes officers. I believe that running into them is a unique opportunity for them to learn the truth and be saved. According to my encounters, more than ninety percent of them agree that Falun Dafa practitioners are good people.
I'd like to share a few of my experiences in this regard.
Warning from a Plainclothes Police Officer
One day, after talking about Falun Dafa in someone's home, I went downstairs and saw a man standing at the entrance to the building. I knew he was one of the plainclothes officers who had been following me. I stopped and said, “Brother, you do know that the CCP is wrong to persecute Falun Dafa, right?”
He said, “Aren't you afraid you'll be arrested?”
“In what world would good people arrest other good people? Falun Dafa practitioners are all good people.”
“That's true,” he admitted.
“The persecution of Falun Dafa has lasted for 19 years,” I said. “Outside of China, the entire world welcomes Falun Dafa, including Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan. You will see it yourself if you ever leave the country.”
He listened to me and then replied, “A summit is coming up and security will be tight. You should be careful!”
“More than 300 million people have quit the Party and its affiliated organizations. Are you a Party member?"
He said he was.
“Let me help you quit the Party, then, with an alias. This way, neither of us will have regrets when the Party is no more. But you must remember that 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”
He agreed and we were both convinced he’d made the right decision.
Life Is More Important
When I go shopping, telling people the facts about Falun Dafa is my focus. One day, I walked into a store and saw a man come in after me. He casually looked at the tomatoes and left.
I knew he was another plainclothes officer assigned to follow me, so I quickly bought something and left the store. I saw him standing not far away, cracking melon seeds. I walked straight up to him. He looked at me and quickly walked away.
I followed him. When I caught up to him, I patted him on the shoulder and said, “I have something to tell you.”
He pushed my hand away and said, “Don't talk to me. I don't want to listen. I don't want to believe anything you say.”
“You don't have to believe in anything,” I said. “But you cannot disbelieve Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. How would you behave if you didn’t believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance? I don't care what your profession is—you work to provide for your family. Money is important, but life is more important.
“Plus, we are the sons and daughters of China, not the offspring of Marxism-Leninism. The CCP is corrupt, murderous.”
He no longer glared at me. He just slowly walked into a crowd and continued cracking melon seeds. But, no matter who was there, I had to save this officer. I couldn't let him continue doing evil and ruining himself, so I followed him.
“You know, I had an accident on this very road. The other car was damaged, but I was not hurt. We common folks look for nothing but peace and health. That’s what Falun Dafa provides. Falun Dafa is Buddha Fa cultivation practice, and whoever attempts to harm it is actually harming themselves. What this means is that the CCP is doomed for persecuting good people who cherish the Buddha Fa.”
He looked at me and I asked, “Are you a Party member?”
He said he was.
“Then let me help you quit using an alias,” I said. “Don't follow the CCP to its doom.”
He looked away with a concerned look on his face. He then told me to finish the deed and help him to separate himself from the Party.
I said wholeheartedly, “Bless you.”
