The following is an account of the persecution some Falun Dafa practitioners have suffered.
Ms. Zhao Dongmei was 28 years old. She was a former employee of the Housing Reform Office in Linfen District, Shanxi Province. She was illegally dismissed from her job because she refused to write a "guarantee statement" [to no longer practice Falun Dafa]; the responsible supervisor was Han Jiazeng. In December 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, but was illegally arrested and brought back to Linfen City Detention Center, where she was severely beaten by policewoman Xin Fuxiang for doing the Falun Gong exercises. Her hands were forcibly cuffed behind her back, resulting in severe swollen arms and hands, to the extent that she could not take care of herself. She later went on a hunger strike. After about 5 or 6 days, the police, including Wang Baoshe, Head of the Detention Center, Dong Wenjie, Deputy Head of the Detention Center and policewoman Xin Fuxiang, ordered several male prisoners to force-feed her, and they made the food go into her windpipe. She started having difficulty breathing right on spot, but the police in the detention center ignored the fact that her life was in danger, and did not do anything about it. They only sent her to the hospital for emergency rescue on the second day after she was already in critical condition. But it was too late. Zhao Dongmei left the world on the night of December 27, 2000, at only 28 years of age. However, the cowardly police department tried to deny their crime, and claimed that she died of high fever.
Mr. Zhang Zhongjie was in his 30s. He also was a former employee of the Housing Reform Office in Linfen District, Shanxi Province and was illegally dismissed from his job by Han Jiazeng because he determinedly kept up his Falun Dafa cultivation practice. Because he distributed Falun Gong truth-clarification materials, the police were looking for him, so he was forced to become homeless in order to avoid further persecution. At the end of 2000, the police suddenly notified his family to identify his body. His family members found that his body had already been buried once. To this day, no one knows exactly how he died.
Ms. Yang Meiying was 53 years old. She was a former employee of the Service Company in Linfen City, Shanxi Province. Since July 20, 1999, she had been arrested twice by Yaodu District Police Department, and had been sent to Linfen Detention Center for more than 60 days, during which time she held a hunger strike for 13 days. In December 2000 she went to Beijing twice to appeal, but she was beaten up by the police and sent to a detention center in Tangshan City, Hebei Province. She went on a hunger strike for 17 days; later she was taken back to Linfen City by Linfen police. Linfen City Judicial and Public Security Division tried to sentence her to jail and illegally ransacked her home many times. In August 2002, she was reported when she went to a friend's home, and was arrested by police from Xiangfen County Hongwei Police Station. Along with her, Falun Dafa practitioners Zhang Guifeng and Gao Ansheng were arrested as well. She was beaten for 6 or 7 hours while her hands were cuffed together and hung up. She was illegally detained at the Xiangfen Detention Center, where she went on a hunger strike of seven days. Her family members were extorted 3,000 Yuan to bail her out. Long-term persecution made her extremely weak, and she passed away in January 2003.
Mr. Wang Shiyuan is 32 years old. He is an employee of Sanwei Group and a PhD graduate. In October 2000, he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, but was arrested by police from a police station in Tianjin City, and was sentenced to two and a half years of forced labor. In a detention center in Tianjin City, he suffered many tortures such as having hot pepper solution stuffed down his throat, hung up with hands cuffed behind the back [with both hands cuffed behind the back, both feet off or only toes touching the ground. Both hands and arms soon lose sensory perception. In addition, both hands atrophy from lack of blood circulation], and being shocked with electric batons. He held a hunger strike to protest the persecution for six months, became extremely weak and was brought to the verge of death. The police were afraid to take responsibility and allowed him to go home in spring 2002. In March 2003, because truth-clarification materials appeared in Shanxi Province Coking Factory, his home was illegally ransacked by police led by the deputy chief of Hongdong County Police Department, Zhao Deli. He was taken from home and sentenced to three years of forced labor.
Ms. Liu Yuxia is an employee of Sanwei Group. She went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong in December 2000 and was arrested by Zhao Deli and Shi Hengliang, head of the Political Security Section. Her home was illegally ransacked twice. She was illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor.
Mr. Tian Zhishun is from Xiayue Village of Xiangfen County. One day after July 20, 1999, when he was doing farm work, he was arrested and taken to Xiangfen Police Department by police sent by Liu Shuangqin and Chai Jishan from the Political Security Section of the County Police Department. A policeman commanded a German shepherd to bite him, and he was bitten more than 60 times on his way from the police department to the gate of the detention center.
Mr. Sima Shou is 70 years old, from Fujian Province. He was reported by someone when distributing truth-clarification materials in the residential area of Linfen Iron Company, and sentenced to three years in jail. He is now imprisoned at Qi County Prison.
Ms. Zhang Ruihong is 37 years old, and a university graduate. She was an employee at Yaomiao Credit Association, but was dismissed by Lu Tianlu, the director of the association, for practicing Falun Gong. She was sentenced to four years in jail for distributing truth-clarification materials. Hou Peng, who was in charge of the trial, ignored the lawyer's defense and vigorously aggravated the sentence.

Later, Guo was detained in a solitary cell for over 6 hours.
Ms. Wang Xiumin, a 36-year-old Dafa practitioner, is a university graduate. She used to work in the Agriculture Department's office in Fenxi County.

It is a heavenly principle that the good is rewarded with good and evil met with evil
Over the past few years, many individuals in China have been punished by heavenly principles. Here are just a few examples of such cases:
Ma Baoshan, former head of the Political and Judiciary Committee in Linfen City, who was in charge of the "610 Office," had participated in the brutal persecution of Falun Gong. He was largely responsible for illegally sentencing Linfen Dafa practitioners, sending them to labor camps, and detaining them. In May 2003, he suddenly died of a serious illness, when he was just in his 40s.
Shao Jianwei, Linfen City Police Department Chief, has participated in persecuting Falun Gong. He was arrested in April 2004 for his involvement with organized criminals and other issues.
Liu Xima, former head of the Political Security Section in Huozhou Police Department, enthusiastically participated in persecuting Falun Gong. He is suspended now and is waiting further investigation.
Tang Xiaochuan, former head of the propaganda department of Sanwei Group, had utilized the company radio station to viciously slander Falun Gong. In the summer of 2003, he died from cancer, although he was only in his 40s.
Qiao Fuji, former deputy chief of Fenxi County Police Department, had uncontrollably tortured Dafa practitioners when he was still in office, including forcibly parading Falun Gong practitioners through the streets. He has now been dismissed from his position and is waiting for further investigation.
Zhao Desheng and Yan Yuxi, former deputy heads of Fenxi County Detention Center, had viciously slandered Falun Dafa and persecuted Falun Gong practitioners when they were in office. Zhao suddenly died from a severe illness, while Yan became partially paralyzed.
Ren Huming, former head of Fenxi County Detention Center, had uncontrollably tortured Falun Gong practitioners. He has now been dismissed from his position and awaits further investigation.
Guo Hucheng, former Party Secretary of Nangu Village, had cooperated with the police many times in ransacking Dafa practitioners' homes. He suddenly died after drinking alcohol, when he was only in his 40s.
Deng Changming, former chief of Xiangjie Police Station in Linfen Township, who had participated in ransacking Dafa practitioners' homes, confiscated their books, and persecuted the practitioners, suddenly died from an acute illness.
Each time we publish news of people receiving karmic retribution, we do so with heavy hearts. These people started off as public servants, but under the intense pressure applied by the Jiang regime, they were pushed into persecuting Dafa disciples. In the process of destroying the lives of kind, law-abiding citizens, they have sealed their own fates and inevitably faced karmic retribution as punishment. If it weren't for Jiang's wicked orders, perhaps their fates would've been different.
