[Editors' Note: In both Western and Chinese culture, the principle of karmic retribution, that is, being held ultimately accountable for one's own actions, is widely accepted. The fundamental teaching of Falun Gong is the characteristic of the universe, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The universe will reward actions that are in harmony with this principle, while actions such as beating, torturing and murdering people will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds will be rewarded with good, while evildoings will meet due retribution. Articles such as this one are meant as a compassionateáreminder of this principle to those who would commit wrongdoing. While many of those who persecute Falun Gong are merely "following orders," the universal law requires that they, too, be held responsible for their actions, and that only by reversing their course of wrongdoing may they escape retribution.]

The vice-section chief, Liu Wanzheng, from Jingyuan Ore Goods Bureau, Baiyin City, Gansu Province, died in the middle of last September after persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. An official named Sun Jie in the Pingchuan District of Baiyin City did all he could to persecute Dafa practitioners. In this regard, he was even acclaimed as having "rendered meritorious service" and was given a bonus of one level of wages. However, he was recently removed from office.

The leader of an elementary school in a village in Weifang City, Shandong Province instigated students to keep watch on teachers who practiced Falun Gong. During a certain time of year, most students in this school experienced an epidemic of parotitis. Some of these infections spread to become meningitis, hepatitis, myocarditis and others. The school was compelled to suspend classes. Two of these students were sisters, and their condition was serious. Their grandparents, a retired party secretary of the village and his wife, had recently participated in monitoring Dafa practitioners; thus, their evil doing was brought to bear on later generations. However, one student of the school was not only safe and sound, but also appeared especially healthy. His grandmother practiced Falun Gong, and often told him to not say bad things about Dafa and not tear down truth-clarification slogans.

Wang Huanda, the director of the "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) in Zhaodong City, Heilongjiang Province, persecuted Dafa practitioners and destroyed Dafa materials. In May 2002, while walking, he suddenly collapsed onto his knees with his leg broken in three places.

Zhang Zhenyang, a political committee member at Anshan City Labor Camp in Liaoning Province, personally directed the program rehearsed by collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture]. Between the Chinese Spring Festival, 2002 and before May 1st, the program was performed several times. The main actress, Dong Weihua developed a large uterine tumor.

Li Hua, the chief of the local police station in Dayubo Township, Yi County, Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province, sent several Dafa practitioners to jail who had planned to go to Beijing to appeal. After a few days, Li Hua had a car accident, and several of his ribs were broken. Police officer Zhou Fuli rushed into a practitioner's home late at night and forcefully carried away the practitioner on his back. After a few steps, he fell down and suffered a stroke. He is now paralyzed.
