Police Officers Support Falun Dafa Practitioners Despite the State-Sanctioned Persecution
(Minghui.org) Despite the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) campaign against Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) that was instigated 16 years ago nationwide in China, there is an increasing number of people who are becoming clear on one fact: Falun Dafa is a great practice that teaches people to conduct themselves according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Illiterate 80-Year-Old Can Read Zhuan Falun
Ms. Li is 80-years-old and illiterate. She has never attended school, but is able to read the main book of Falun Dafa Zhuan Falun. When Ms. Li was detained, police officers and employees of the 610 Office told her to read a bit of Zhuan Falun for them. “It's true,” they said in amazement, as they witnessed this illiterate woman read.
The police stopped harassing her after she told them about the many merits of Falun Dafa. A little while later, Mrs. Li was reported to the police for distributing flyers pertaining to the persecution of Falun Dafa. The police initially didn't come to the scene. A little while later an officer showed up and told Ms. Li politely. “Although someone just reported you, we know Falun Dafa is good, so we didn't want to come. Would you like us to give you a ride home?” Mrs. Li said that she was fine to go home on her own.
Police Officers Promise Never to Arrest Falun Dafa Practitioners
On one occasion, a Falun Dafa practitioner was asked to get into a police car while she was outside distributing materials about the persecution. As the police officers drove onto a quiet street, they told her the following before letting her go. “Tell *name omitted* (another Falun Dafa practitioner) she can do whatever she wants. We won't arrest her again.”
The above-mentioned practitioner used to be the area's coordinator prior to the persecution. Her husband died as a result of persecution, and she herself almost died from being severely tortured in police custody. While in police custody she was diagnosed with cancer. The police were in awe when she fully recovered after being released.
There are many police officers in the area that don't comply with the CCP's order to arrest Falun Dafa practitioners. Some police officers have approached practitioners and promised that they'd never arrest a practitioner again.
“I Actually Sympathize with Falun Dafa”
One young lady, also a practitioner, was distributing software which allows the user to access uncensored information by breaking through the Chinese internet blockade. She happened to give this software to an off-duty policeman. She told him, “This software will allow you to access censored facts about China and the world.” The policeman accepted the software and commented, “Falun Gong does things so openly now. I actually sympathize with Falun Gong.”
Police Officer: “Why Do You Still Report on Falun Dafa Practitioners?”
Three Falun Dafa practitioners were reported as they were talking to people about the persecution in a Changchun department store. Once the police arrived, they allowed two other practitioners to walk away, and took the third practitioner with the informer to the local police station.
As soon as they arrived at the police station, the police chief exclaimed: “Falun Dafa is great!” The other police officers nodded in agreement. They then scolded the informer, “What are you doing? Why do you still report on Falun Dafa practitioners? Don't you know how many people have received karmic retribution for fueling the persecution?”
Before letting the practitioner go, the police officers told her to take care and look out for her safety in the future.
