Recalling the Days When I Was Illegally Detained
(Clearwisdom.net) One month ago, I was arrested by policemen while clarifying the truth to the public, and they sent me to a detention center that same day. On the way there, I explained the truth to the policemen in the car. Once we got to the detention center, I was locked up right away. I told the policemen who had taken me to the detention center to remember "Falun Dafa is good", "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good", and they thanked me.
Since I would not wear the prison uniform, the head of the prisoners said: "You have to wear it, tomorrow the instructor (a policewoman in the detention center) will speak to you." The next day, a policewoman wanted to speak to me, and I still did not wear the prison uniform. When I walked into the office, the first thing I said was: "Remember 'Falun Dafa is good'." She made a groaning sound,and then started to ask me questions, but I did not answer any of them. She then screamed loudly: "Do you think I am afraid to beat you?"
My heart was very calm and I looked straight into her eyes, and she did not say anything else. After a while, another policewoman came in to talk to me, I also said to her: "Remember 'Falun Dafa is good', heaven is exterminating the CCP, withdraw from the CCP to save your own life. Have you withdrawn from the CCP yet?" She did not say anything at that time, but later she said: "I know you Falun Gong practitioners like to help others, you don't waste food, and always think of others first. You may not wear the prison uniform during these few days, but you still have to wear it later." She then asked some other things, but I still did not answer any of them.
I also did not memorize the prison rules, do the prison exercises nor wear the prison uniform. On Monday, a visitation day, a policewoman told me that I was not allowed to see my family without wearing a uniform, thus they forced the uniform upon me. I thought about it afterward, and realized that I had not gotten rid of my attachment to family, and thus allowed the evil to take advantage of me on that one.
Right after I was sent to the detention center, I noticed so many prisoners there (more than fifty or so), and my first thought was to save them. At first, I only persuaded two of them to withdraw from the CCP.
Every day, except when doing the Falun Gong exercises during my lunch break, I interacted with the other prisoners. I told them the truth about Falun Gong, and to withdraw from the CCP. I persuaded forty-three people within fifteen days. During this time, at every moment, I recited the Fa in my heart, sent forth righteous thoughts, and did not think of anything else.
With the support of my fellow practitioners as a whole body, I was able to go home. "It is extremely dangerous to add anything human to cultivation practice." ("Digging out the Roots" from Essentials for Further Advancement)
