Yueyang City, Hunan Province
Over the past two years that Falun Gong has been persecuted, all the police officers who have got to know practitioners are aware in their hearts that Falun Dafa practitioners are good and virtuous people. However, some officers don't have any sense of justice. They have publicly stated that they would do anything to keep their official posts. Zhang Yaofei, Director of the Luowang Police Station, threatened Falun Dafa practitioners saying, "We have no problem with you Falun Dafa practitioners' moral behaviour. But my parents supported me for my education so that that I could keep a job. If you go to Beijing and I lose my job because of it, you won't be able to live in the community we are in charge of [meaning that the practitioners will be sent from the community to the detention centre]." The Luowang officers in charge of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners privately said to their subordinates, "It doesn't matter how many people die in Luowang. You know the murder case in the Xiangbei Market? We don't have any responsibility for the two deceased. But for Falun Gong, it is different. If they leave for Beijing, all our "rice bowls" [i.e., jobs] will be gone." Therefore, in order to keep their jobs, the police often monitor practitioners' homes 24 hours a day, harass or illegally detain practitioners for no reason.
Because some of their local policemen are notorious thugs, the people sadly sigh, "What a society this is! The vicious are in charge of the good." An officer in the Yueyang Detention Centre said, "I am happy with whoever else comes here but Falun Gong practitioners. I don't like Falun Gong coming here. I can't gain anything from them, not even a pack of cigarettes."
Hereby, we remind those officers who cannot tell benevolence from cruelty that, "Never in history has someone who persecuted those with upright faiths ever succeeded" (From Teacher Lis article "Coercion Cannot Change People's Hearts," March 2001) and never has anyone who aided and abetted those infamous criminals ever come to a good end. We hope that you cherish your own lives. To protect benevolence is to create a bright future for yourselves.
