After arriving at the station and explaining the situation, the missionary was subjected to harsh verbal abuse by the officers who often like to feel their authority. They stated such things as, “You are a murderer!” “You were probably driving recklessly!” After completely berating and humbling the missionary and the other Christians, the officers then went out to the scene of the accident to make their report.
