A Police Officer Who Arrested Practitioners Regrets His Actions
(Minghui.org) I met a man who was asking for directions in Shenyang on March 21, 2018. As we were talking, he showed me his police ID. I was stunned because he was the same officer who had illegally arrested a Falun Dafa practitioner nine years ago. I remembered him because I was the one who had reported his misdeed on the Minghui website.
From our conversation, I learned that after he participated in arresting Falun Dafa practitioners in 2009, he experienced a series of misfortune. One day, he lost consciousness after drinking alcohol. When he woke up several days later, he lost the ability to speak, followed by a loss of memory. He eventually recovered his speech, but still had partial loss of memory and became completely illiterate. He also has difficulty balancing himself when walking.
After meeting him after all these years, I told myself that I should tell him the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
I said, “Being a police officer in China can have its drawbacks. They are used as a tool to do the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) bidding. They're not allowed to think for themselves and many have lost their sense of right and wrong. For example, during the cultural revolution, a group of policemen fabricated many cases for the CCP, but got secretly shot and became the scapegoats afterwards.”
“The Party has carried out many movements. The cultural revolution happened in the past, but now it’s the persecution of Falun Dafa and the police are told to arrest practitioners. It is wrong for the communist regime to persecute Falun Dafa. It orchestrated the self-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square and blamed it on the practice. The Party incited public hatred against people who practice it. Falun Dafa teaches Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, helps people to become healthy and the social morality has rebound. There is nothing wrong in practicing it. Do you think Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good?”
He replied, “Now that I have heard you explain it, yes, it is good.”
I took his arm and said, “You know, when a person participates in the persecution, he will get punished. Your illnesses have something to do with this. I actually remember you. I practice Falun Dafa. It’s such an interesting arrangement that you and I meet again in this vast world. I wish you well. I hope that you are healthy and safe. Whether you believe in retribution or not, I want to tell you that everything happens for a reason.”
“After practitioners are arrested, they get sent to forced labor camps and prisons. There, they suffer from cruel persecution. Innocent, good people are being tortured. Think about it, who is responsible for that? It’s the people who arrested them. They must bear the responsibility. This is retribution.”
I then showed him a photo of a practitioner who was tortured and became disfigured in a forced labor camp. I told him that practitioner's story. He examined the photo carefully and said, “This person was made to be like this? He’s finished.” I replied, “He got persecuted to death. So many police officers have been deceived and instigated by the Party to persecute good people. They’ve done so many wrong things in ignorance!”
I also talked about how communism began and how to withdraw from the CCP. I said, “Only when you do the withdrawal will you will have a bright future. Let me help you withdraw from the Party and its youth organizations.” He excitedly shook hands with me and said, “Thank you! All I can do is to say thank you!”
I said, “Please remember Falun Dafa is good, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He shook my hands and we bid farewell to each other.
