Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 562 – Creating a Hero from the Police force
Wen Dongjun suddenly stops eating. Feng Yu was surprised. He turned around and saw a man in his 50s. He seems familiar.
“Dad, you are here too?” Zhang Han stood up and timidly asked.
This was Zhang Han’s father? The boss of Beijing’s police force?
“I thought you said you have some activities in your school? This is your so-call activity?” Zhang Han’s father asked coldly.
“Uncle.” Wen Dongjun greeted. He was now like a kid being caught by the farmer for stealing apples on a farm.
Wen Dongjun and Zhang Han stood up. The young girl also stopped eating. But there was still a young man who was still eating slowly like nothing had happened. Zhang Han’s father was curious. All of Zhang Han’s friends knew who he was and his position in the government. This young man was not simple.
Feng Yu took out a handkerchief and wiped his mouth and hands. He stood up and extend his hand to Zhang Han’s father: “Hello, Minister Zhang. I am Feng Yu. Nice to meet you.”
Feng Yu addressed him as Minister Zhang and not Uncle Zhang. His attitude was like speaking to someone on the same level. Zhang Han’s father frowned. Who was this young man?
Wait, did he say he was Feng Yu? Could it be that Feng Yu?!
“You are that Feng Yu from Bing City’s Tai Hua Trading?” Zhang Han’s father shook his hand.
“Uncle Zhang have heard of me? If you are not busy, how about joining us for dinner?”
All the officials from Bing City had heard of Feng Yu. Maybe those small fries might not know, but all the top leaders knew who Feng Yu was.
Feng Yu had even met both the Premier and old Premier. This was why he was not afraid of Zhang Han’s father. He just treated him as a regular government official.
Wen Dongjun saw Zhang Han’s father shaking hands with Feng Yu and was shocked. He had met Zhang Han’s father before and knew his temper. Since when did he become so friendly?
But what was Feng Yu doing? Why did he invite Zhang Han’s father to join them? Shit. Zhang Han’s father really sits down?
“I happen to have some free time now. I can chat with you all, but there is no need for dinner.” Zhang Han’s father sat down, and Wen Dongjun immediately pours a cup of tea for him.
“Uncle Zhang, just call me Xiao Feng will do.” Feng Yu politely said. There was no need for him to act like some official here.
“Ok. All of you are classmates?”
“We were in the same class in High School. Later we went to separate classes because we picked different subjects.”
“Oh, then are you also studying in Beijing?”
“Yes. I am studying at Beijing University. But recently, I am studying at Hong Kong University as an exchange student.”
Exchange student? What’s that? Although Zhang Han’s father does not know what’s that, it sounds important.
“Then why are you back?”
Zhang Han’s father chatted with Feng Yu like friends, and Wen Dongjun and the rest were sitting at attention. They did not even continue eating.
“I got some work at CCTV, so I came back. I will return back to Hong Kong in a few days. Exams are around the corner.”
“I heard from Zhang Ruiqiang that you are a smart person. When he has some issues at work, he will look for you, and he will have the solution.”
Eh? Zhang Ruiqiang had mentioned about me? He said good things about me? Not bad. At least helping him getting those political credits were not wasted.
“On-lookers see most of the game.”
Zhang Han’s father nodded. It’s rare for him to meet humble young men. Zhang Ruiqiang had told him that Feng Yu was a genius. But he could not tell from this meeting. But he noticed Feng Yu was a modest and matured person.
When Zhang Han’s father thought about this, he looked at Wen Dongjun. These two people had grown up together and why was there such a huge difference? Wen Dongjun was an only bigger size than Feng Yu. What other uses does he have?”
Wen Dongjun was the too big size, and it will not be easy to arrange jobs for him. No leaders would want an assistant that’s 1.9 m tall. They will need to look up with telling him instructions. Zhang Han was so pretty and why did she like him?
“Yes, Uncle.” Wen Dongjun immediately straightens his back.
“If a branch bureau’s case-solving rate is low and the civilians were worried about their security, what should you do?”
Wen Dongjun frowned. This again. I do not want to enter the police force. Can you stop testing me every time we met? But Wen Dongjun also knows that Zhang Han’s father was trying to groom him. If he enters the police force, Zhang Han’s father would be able to help him get promoted.
Obviously, Wen Dongjun does not know how to answer Zhang Han’s father. If the case solving rate was too low, then punish the head of the branch!
But Wen Dongjun dares not to answer him this way. Suddenly he remembered about the variety program recording this afternoon. Why can’t there be a variety program about law enforcement? Feng Yu had mentioned that his Happy Dictionary was to create a hero from commoners. Why not create a hero policeman?
Wen Dongjun had heard Feng Yu telling him that many of the stories about Lei Feng were created to portray him as a national hero. It should not be a problem to create a model policeman.
“Uncle Zhang, I think we can work with the TV station to create a program about law enforcement, to showcase the policemen crime solving. In a way, this will serve as a warning to those criminals and promote the Police force’s good image. Just like Lei Feng.”
“Lei Feng?” Zhang Han’s father looked at Wen Dongjun curiously.
“Lei Feng’s stories are mostly fake. For example, the donations he made was several times more than his income. Also, he needs to do a lot of things every day and where did he get the time to train? If you look at the stories carefully, there are many loopholes. But there are still many people who believe in Lei Feng’s stories and look up to him as a role model……”
Wen Dongjun became softer as he said. Lei Feng was portrayed as a model citizen, and he was talking bad about him. It does not seem like this was the right thing to do. Even Chairman Mao had said everyone should follow Lei Feng as an example. But this was the truth.
“You are saying that we should create a “Lei Feng” from the police force?” Zhang Han’s father looked at Wen Dongjun expressionless.
“But what if the police force does not have someone like him?” Zhang Han’s father asked.
“I know. As long as we credit of everybody’s good deeds to one person and that person will be made into a hero.”
Feng Yu nearly choked from his tea when he heard this.
I was talking rubbish in the past, and you remembered everything I said? I thought you were a good listener. I didn’t know you have such a good memory. These things can only be said between us. Although this was a VIP room, the door was still open!
Zhang Han’s father looked at Wen Dongjun and narrowed his eyes. “You are telling me to create a fake hero?”
“No need to be fake. You can just exaggerate some small incidents. Many officers had lots of achievements under their belts which the public was unaware of. You can just publicize and promote what they had done and their achievements. At the same time, let the public know how difficult it was for them to solve the crimes. This way, the public will not blame the policemen for low crime solving rates, and they will know that there were some Super Cops around. They will feel more secure.”
“You are the one who thought this up?”
“Yes. I am the one.” Wen Dongjun replied. He cannot say it was Feng Yu who told him these.
“In the future, stop thinking of these unorthodox methods. Han Han, are you done with your dinner? Come home with me now. You all can carry on with your dinner. I will bring Han Han home first.”
Zhang Han’s father stood up and left with the unwilling Zhang Han. Using marketing strategies to create a Super Cop from the Police Force was a good idea. Zhang Han’s father wanted to think it through and see if this idea would work.
Wen Dongjun saw Zhang Han leaving with her father. He was depressed. Was there anything wrong with my answer just now?
Feng Yu noticed the excitement in Zhang Han’s father eyes when he left. Seems like Wen Dongjun’s had inspired Zhang Han’s father a lot.
Government Officials need to know these tricks too!
