(Minghui.org) I was arrested in the spring of 2017 while talking to people at a market about the persecution of Falun Dafa.
The market is close to the village government, and a government official saw us and reported us to the local police. We were taken to the police station. The officers handcuffed me to a metal chair for interrogation. They yelled at me and hit me on the face with books.
I was not scared at all and didn't answer any of the police's questions. I just told them how wonderful Falun Dafa is and how the Communist Party is persecuting it and the practitioners without any legal basis. They tried to prevent me from talking.
I wasn't intimidated by them and continued talking. I told them how practicing Falun Dafa cured my many diseases and taught me to be a good person. I also told them about the Tian'anmen self-immolation hoax used to frame Falun Dafa and the persecution’s lack of legal basis.
I kept on talking and they listened, without interrupting me. I noticed a young man listening very carefully without saying anything.
They left after a while. I didn't want to stay there any longer, so I shouted out, “Let me go. I need to use the bathroom.”
The young man came in. I said to him, “All I am doing is following the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance, and being a good person. Your keeping me here will generate a lot of karma.” He unlocked my handcuffs.
On my way to the bathroom, I saw many police officers standing in the yard. I walked to them and told them that many high ranking officials had been jailed for participating in the persecution.
They listened attentively. After a while, a tall officer dragged me into the room and handcuffed me to the metal chair again. Then the young man came and unlocked me, “Please come to my office,” he said.
I went to his office and continued to talk to him about Falun Dafa. He listened carefully. I could tell that he agreed with what I said. He was especially interested in the stories of good and evil receiving their due retribution. I talked to him for more than an hour, and I thought he was fully aware that Falun Dafa is good and the persecution is wrong.
I was very happy for him and further asked him to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its associated organizations. He agreed immediately. At that time, someone came in and called him “chief.” Only then did it occur to me he was the director of the police station.
My son came and took me back home after lunch. He even became friends with the police chief.
When a few practitioners were reported to the same police station several months later for distributing truth-clarifying materials in nearby villages at night, the police chief asked his officers to turn on the high beam headlights and scare the practitioners away. He meant for his officers to just go through formality without arresting any practitioners.
While most of the practitioners returned home safely, two practitioners mistakenly got onto the police car and were taken to the police station. They were detained there overnight and extorted of 2,000 yuan each by the officers before being released the next morning.
After some practitioners heard about this, they wrote a letter to the police chief. He talked to the officers and asked them to return the money.
Because of his righteous protection of us, the chief received blessings and was promoted to the city Police Department one year later.
