(Minghui.org) When the persecution of Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) practitioners started in 1999, many people in China were deceived by the lies put out by the communist regime. Tempted by money and self-interest, they have actively participated in the persecution over the past 20 years.

However, some police officers and law enforcement officials have had opportunities to hear personal experiences firsthand from Falun Dafa practitioners themselves. They now understand that Falun Dafa is good and they are choosing to follow their conscience.

“We Are Leaving”

Two police officers and a village official visited the home of a Dafa practitioner in Cuihuangkou Village, Tianjin City. One of them asked, “Didn't you used to practice Falun Gong?”

“I have been practicing for over 20 years now. I have regained my health and am able to help out at home,” replied the practitioner.

One officer said, “You are not sick, that's good. But don't practice it anymore and don't go out and talk about it to people either.”

The practitioner said, “Let me tell you, when the police picked me up in 1999, a police chief asked me, 'Tell me the truth. Was your illness cured by the hospital or by practicing Falun Gong?' I told him, 'I got better from practicing Falun Gong.' The chief told me right then, 'You go home and practice it as you wish!'”

The other officer said, “We'll let you get back to what you were doing. We're leaving.”

“I Knew You Were a Good Person the Moment I Saw You!”

Two officers from Huanzhu Police Station visited the home of Pei Lian, a practitioner. When asked why they were there, one of them said, “We just want to see how you are doing. Do you still practice Falun Gong? Who are you in contact with? How are you organized? You ought to listen to some music and go dancing or something. You know...go out and have some fun.”

Pei replied, “This practice is so good, why wouldn't I do it? I have been practicing this for 20 years. I haven't taken any medicine. We follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. If you don't believe me, ask my neighbors if I am a good person.”

The first officer said, “I knew you are a good person the moment I saw you.”

Pei said, “The law grants us freedom of religion. I hope you are not listening to all of the false propaganda.”

The second officer said, “You can practice at home if you like—don't make trouble for yourself.”

Pei said, “I hope you remember 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Those words can bring you blessings.”

They waved and thanked him as they they left.

“Use Your Own Discretion”

Two elderly practitioners, one 86 and the other 84, were telling people about Falun Dafa in a public place when the police picked them up and took them to the station. The practitioners were not afraid or worried, and just talked to the officers and security staff about how evil the Communist Party was and advised them to withdraw from it and its affiliated organizations. Over 30 people at the police station agreed.

Later they heard a police calling his superior officer, “We have two female Falun Gong here. One is 84 and one is 86. What should we do?”

“Nice job! 86, huh? Why don't you get someone who is 860 years old?” the officer said sarcastically over the phone, “Use your own discretion, use your own discretion.”

The officers released the two practitioners.
