A Change of Heart by Criminals Condemned to Death

This is a true story from Baishan City in China. A Falun Gong practitioner was arrested and taken to the city detention centre and detained in a cell where the cell leader was a criminal condemned to death. (This criminal killed a person, chopped up the corpse and was then sentenced to execution. Because he had several cases still pending, he had now been held in the jail for four years). The criminal tortured this practitioner under the supervision of other policemen. However this practitioner had a compassionate heart and took the effort and time to talk to them about Falun Gong and the persecution so that they could learn the truth, but he was tortured till he vomited blood and was sent to a hospital for emergency rescue.

Despite being subjected to so much persecution the detention centre did not stop its torture of this practitioner. The next day the police sent him to a cell for sick people, where the leader was another criminal on death row. This criminal asked him several questions, after which he understood instantly that the Chinese Communist Party had lied, and that Falun Dafa had been wronged. Seeing this practitioner firm and non-resentful character towards his captors even though he was on the verge of death, he was very touched. He told the practitioner frankly: "Three days before you came, I was told they would send a Falun Gong person here. They asked me to treat you viciously if you were not already dead. Now I realise that Falun Gong teaches people to be good and is a righteous Law. I can tell you I have done all kinds of bad things, but I will not take part in persecuting Falun Gong. I would not be where I am today if I had known about Falun Gong earlier. If I have a chance, I will learn Falun Gong so that I too can be a good person."

Upon seeing that this practitioner was not persecuted by his inmate guard but instead treated with respect, the other criminals listened to him clarify the truth and talk about the meaning of life. Many people said they wanted to learn Falun Gong if they were released. The police were frightened by this situation and moved the practitioner to a different cell.

Because the first inmate head followed the instructions of the police and persecuted practitioners, the police sent another practitioner to this cell. Surprisingly, one day this person asked suddenly: "What are the facts of the Tiananmen Square self-immolation?" The practitioner told him that the Falun Dafa books clearly state that practitioners cannot take lives, and to kill others and to kill oneself are both sinful. Real practitioners would not do such things. It was a frame-up. The practitioners continued to point out fallacies in the set-up: "People with a little common sense should also realise that a burned patient cannot be wrapped with cloth, since that would cause infection in the wound area. How could it be possible that the patient was wrapped tightly as shown on TV? The little girl, Liu Siying, was burned at the throat and her trachea was cut up, how could she receive the interview of the reporter? The organiser Wang Jindong's cotton clothes were burned while the plastic bottle filled with gas that was between his legs was intact. Think about it, and you will know the truth!" The guard took a hard look at this and said: "I have known for a long time that the Chinese Communist Party is good at lying, but I was still cheated this time! I know you are good people; I support your going on a hunger strike. If everyone is like you, China will have hope." This big turnaround surprised everyone. This was another example of the power of righteous thoughts and righteous actions.
