(Minghui.org) I am a farmer. One time when I was seeding a corn field, I spoke to the person working next to me about Falun Gong and the persecution. When I mentioned about self-immolation hoax on Tiananmen Square, she suddenly said, “I knew the self-immolation was fake.” I asked how she knew, and here is what she said.

When Falun Gong was first being persecuted (around 1999), even before the Tiananmen self-immolation, one time, I was at the village office. I saw a police car pull up and several policemen came out.

One policeman said to the headman of our village, “Go and get that lunatic from your village. Did he become crazy after he started practicing Falun Gong?”

The village headman said, “He has never practiced Falun Gong, but he's been crazy over ten years now.”

The policeman slapped his hand on the table, “I said he's been practicing Falun Gong, so he has!”

The headman was speechless. He looked at other village officials around him. Then he said, “Well, it might as well, nobody in his family wants to take care of him anyway.”

So the madman from our village was put into the police vehicle. The police commented, “See, see, practicing Falun Gong is how he became like this. He is so crazy that he doesn't know anything.” Then they drove the madman to a mental hospital.

Ever since then, no one in our village believes what the CCP says on TV. Everyone thinks the Tiananmen self-immolation was a hoax because even the madman in our village was used by the government to tell lies.
