(Clearwisdom.net) 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.

In the beginning of this year, Pang Shuai, a policeman of the Public Security Bureau of Jianchang County, Liaoning Province, led someone with him to Beijing to arrest a practitioner. They chased the practitioner into Beijing's Fangshan District, but were unable to catch the practitioner. On the way back, Pang Shuai stretched his head out the window while a vehicle was passing his car. The passing vehicle decapitated him instantly.

Li Weimin was the general secretary of the Political and Judicial Committee of Sanfu Township. Li harbored hatred toward Dafa and arrested Falun Gong practitioners illegally. During the Spring Festival of 2002, he suffered an illness and died after failing to respond to any medical treatment.

In June, an elderly woman spent 5 Yuan and hired a young man to follow a Dafa practitioner who passed a flyer to her. She received retribution when her stomach became so swollen that she was unable to even walk.

A man in his 60's in Jianchang County, Liaoning Province, reported the practitioner who had given him a flyer to the police. Two months later, he died of an illness. The practitioner is still detained in the notorious Masanjia Forced Labor Camp.

In March of 2002, Sun Dongli, head of the Construction Department of Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province, together with his subordinates Sun Ying and Ge Yuhui, they plotted an arrest of a Dafa practitioner who worked in their department. Sun Ying, however, suffered a fall and fractured his arm on the way to arrest the practitioner. More recently, Sun Ying has been diagnosed with throat cancer.
