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.

Yue Yang, the former Chief of Wuxue Cities Public Security Bureau, has been torturing Dafa practitioners with cruel methods since he started to work at the Huangmei County Public Security Bureau. After been promoted to the Chief of Wuxue City Public Security Bureau, he continued following Jiang's directives to persecute Dafa practitioners who believe in the principle of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance." Because of his direct involvement in the persecution, many Falun Dafa practitioners were illegally sentenced to forced-labor camps or they were taken to brainwashing centers to suffer mental and physical torture. Some practitioners received sentences and some passed away as a result of the brutal abuse. Some were persecuted to the point that they suffered mental collapses. Some practitioners' families were broken up, while others were forced to go from place to place. Many families were fined, their homes were ransacked and their family, relatives, colleagues, and friends suffered as well. Because Yueyang committed numerous evil deeds, he received karmic retribution. In 2003, he was arrested for being involved in a financial crime.
