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 compassionate reminder 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.

Policewoman Luo Xiurong suffers mental problems and cerebral hemorrhage

Policewoman Luo Xiurong, 44 years old, cruelly persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners while working in a detention center in Xiangcheng City. Soon after, she developed bone spurs in her cervical and lumbar vertebrae and heel bone, and she also suffered a cerebral hemorrhage.

Right after January 1, 2004, she started having mental problems. She sought medical treatment, but she didn't dare to tell those who knew her that she was ill, because she was afraid they would think she was receiving karmic retribution. Some Falun Dafa practitioners had told her to treat Dafa practitioners well. When she was asked why she persecuted Dafa practitioners, she said she had followed the orders of Xie Zhongzhou, a member of the "610 Office."

Chen Qingyi, Deputy Mayor of Xiangcheng City, killed in a traffic accident

Deputy Mayor of Xiangcheng City Chen Qingyi, 47 years old, was head of the propaganda department of Xiangcheng City and the director of the Office of the City Committee.

At the beginning of September 2004, Chen died when a big truck overturned unexpectedly and crashed right into his car as he was driving on the highway. By the time of the accident, two other main people in charge of persecuting Falun Gong in Xiangcheng City had been dismissed from their jobs. The former mayor Meng Weizhong was also killed in a traffic accident.

Police officer Ge destroys police vehicle and loses the ability to speak

Police officer Ge was a driver at the Doumen Village Police Station in Huaiyang County, Henan Province. He used to drive around and arrest Falun Dafa practitioners.

One day, he shocked a lot of people by arresting Falun Dafa practitioner Yang Dezhi, who was disabled and suffering from general paralysis. He refused to listen or to believe the compassionate advice of Falun Dafa practitioners, who told him not to treat Falun Dafa unfairly.

In the beginning of August 2004, he was badly injured when he collided with a cement pillar in his police vehicle. The vehicle was totaled and he bit through his own tongue during the impact, making it highly possible that he will never recover normal speech.
