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.

Fu Juan was a guard at Bangbu City Second Detention Center. Between 2000 and 2001 she tortured many Falun Gong practitioners. She said, "There is no one I hate more than those who practice Falun Gong."

Many Falun Gong practitioners were imprisoned at the detention center in 2000. Fu Juan was very cruel. She verbally abused practitioners and ordered them to squat and listen to her lecture them. Before entering the prison cells, she made practitioners recite the detention center rules. The practitioners were wrongfully detained so they refused to cooperate. As a result, she made each practitioner lie on their stomachs in turn on the big bed, in only their underwear. Then she used a bamboo stick and brutally beat their hips. Everyone in the detention center could hear the beating. Even those in cells some distance away shuddered from the sounds of the beating.

Fu Juan was devoid of any sense of kindness even toward older practitioners. She tortured them even more brutally. More than a dozen practitioners suffered black and purple bruises on their hips from the ruthless beatings. Fu Juan used to be a national gold-medal judo sportswoman. She was 1.74 meter (5.7 ft) tall and used her judo skills to torture the Falun Gong practitioners.

When she walked into the prison cell, as a routine everyone had to line up. She wore white gloves and black boots and had a wicked look on her face. She walked slowly and would stare at each one in line. Pausing before a particular person meant this individual was in trouble. Any person would become a target for her verbal abuse. She forced two practitioners who were in their sixties to squat in the yard and asked them whether or not they would continue to practice Falun Gong. When they responded "Yes," Fu kicked them in the head with her boots. She kicked each of them more than a dozen times. The common cell inmates could barely keep from crying out while witnessing this horror. These two practitioners might have died from the beating had Falun Gong not protected them.

Even though Fu Juan constantly abused the practitioners, they still treated her with compassion. They warned her about karmic retribution and patiently told her the facts about Falun Gong. However, Fu did not listen, but tortured practitioners even more.

One day, Fu Juan and a Falun Gong practitioner had the same dream at the same time. They both dreamed that while Fu was beating the practitioner, the bamboo stick hit Fu's body instead of the practitioner's body. She became afraid and said she would not beat the practitioners again. However, she had done too many evil things and been awakened too late. Karmic retribution was already happening to her.

In May 2005, Fu Juan was involved in a bribery incident with inmates and an unscrupulous guard, a man named Sun. She was sentenced to four years in prison.

Policeman Sun had a nickname "Sun Sanpi" (which means one who could beat an inmate three times resulting in torn skin and gaping wounds). He had verbally abused the practitioners, although he was not the guard assigned to the cell where practitioners were held. He once beat a practitioner from Hunan Province. Sun has since been sentenced and dismissed from his workplace.

Those who serve as officials in the public security sector, the procuratorate, the courts, and the National Security Departments, and any others who continue abusing and persecuting Falun Gong practitioners: examine your conscience, treating practitioners well equates to treating yourself well!
