[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.]

According to the News report, in February of 2002 the mayor of Macheng City, Hubei Province, Zhang Jiaguo sustained severe brain damage when something went wrong with the anesthesia during a simple operation on his vocal cords.

China Central Agency reported this shocking news from Baiguo Town, Macheng City, Hubei province. On the afternoon of April 18th, 2001, female Falun Gong practitioner Wang Junhua was beaten to near death by a local government official. She was then dragged to the front of the local government building at Jinyuan Square and burned to death. The police falsely told the bystanders that she immolated herself. At the same time, they were dragging two other Falun Gong practitioners on the ground with motorcycles. The scene was ghastly to behold.

We strongly advise the officials who follow Jiang's regime in persecuting Falun Dafa: Don't throw away your own future due to temporary benefits gained by doing bad deeds.
