( 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.

Twenty-three year old male Wang Kunchang lived in the Hougan village of Changyi Taibao town in Weifang, Shandong province. He was hired by the corrupt local officials to be a muscleman for the Changyi Taibao police station, and directly participated in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Almost every Falun Gong practitioner in the police station suffered severe beatings from him. He sometimes beat practitioners with a homemade, waxed pole, making no exception even for young practitioners. One day he rode a bicycle over a young practitioner's toe. The toe immediately became black and swollen. Wang took pleasure in seeing the young practitioner suffer.

Falun Gong practitioners have tried many times, with great compassion and tolerance, to persuade him to give up his evil ways and become good again, but he continued his vicious behavior. While driving one day in early August 2002, the vehicle Wang Kunchang drove suffered a head-on collision with another moving vehicle. Wang Kunchang died on the scene, but everyone in the other vehicle escaped without injury. Insiders say: this is indeed retribution!
