Shi Xiaomin, director of Handian Village Police Station in Zhuanglang County, Gansu Province, has been following Jiang to persecute Dafa practitioners. He illegally sent Dafa practitioner Liu Yonghong, a teacher at the Handian Middle School, to a labor camp after catching her distributing Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials. On July 14, 2002, Shi Xiaomin went on a trip with his wife and a commissioner from the county police department. The police van they were driving rolled over. All three people were seriously injured and rushed to hospital for emergency treatment. Shi Xiaomin was paralyzed. His wife and the commissioner were hospitalized for several months.

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.
