Neighbors Protect a Practitioner from the Police
(Minghui.org) We heard that the local 610 Office set up a special division to investigate the appearance of banners with information about Falun Gong.
Therefore, our local group of practitioners decided to spend more time sending forth righteous thoughts. I sent righteous thoughts from 6:00 a.m. to 7:20 a.m one day at the end of January and then I was about to go out to hang clothes when a group of nine police officers arrived in the hallway outside my apartment. They tried to enter my apartment, but I had locked it before leaving.
Neighbor Warns: “There are police officers at my home.”
While I was out hanging clothes, the police officers went to a neighbor's home to find out if there was anyone else in my home.
My neighbor came to find me and whispered into my ear, “There are police officers at my home.” I was then able to leave quietly and escape to another building.
I had talked to this neighbor and her husband about Falun Gong and gave them informational materials. Two weeks later my neighbor told me that they had read the materials and destroyed the photo of communist dictator Chairman Mao, which had been hanging in their living room. I continued to give them Falun Gong materials. They believe that Falun Dafa is good and the husband read Zhuan Falun and learned the exercises.
Another Neighbor: “Stay at my home”
When I arrived at another building, there was a ladder all the way up to the roof. I climbed up, sat on the roof in the full lotus position and sent forth righteous.
I climbed down after half-an-hour and knocked at another neighbor's door. I had talked to them about Falun Gong and gave them calendars with information about Falun Gong before.
I told them my reason for stopping by. The grandmother, Ms. Yu, said: “Stay at our home. You are in your 60s and can climb to the top of the building, which shows how capable a practitioner can be.” She had a good impression of practitioners and wanted to help. I gave my key to her and asked that she turn off the gas valve in the kitchen.
She talked to another neighbor who had also learned about the persecution from me. They got my computer and took it to their home to keep it safe.
That neighbor understood about the corruption of the authorities and later said to me, “These officers wanted to harass you before the Chinese New Year. It's because they wanted a bonus.”
I said to my neighbors, “This group of people trespassed into residents homes, which is a violation of existing Chinese law. There is a Chinese proverb, 'Long ago, bandits were in the mountains, but today bandits are among the police.'”
During the nine hours I stayed at Ms. Yu's home, I sent righteous thoughts often. I sang a Falun Gong song for Ms. Yu's grandson and taught him to say “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Officers Threaten to Arrest Neighbor
Those officers searched the home of another one of my neighbors who lives across the hall from my home, and found a Falun Gong DVD. They thought she had warned me and suspected she was a practitioner as well. They said if they could not find me, they would take her away. Her husband would not let the police take her.
My neighbors all know that Falun Gong is good and will not let anything happen to me. They protect me when the need arises.
