Editors' note: In both Western and Chinese cultures, 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 acts that are in harmony with this principle, while doing things 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.

Cao Youzhen, a policewoman from Wuhan Police Sub-bureau, died of cancer

Cao Youzhen was a police officer from Yijiadun Police Station, Qiaokou Police Bureau, Wuhan City. After the Chinese government began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, Cao Youzhen participated in the persecution many times. During the first half of 2000, she went to Etouwan Brainwashing Center in Qiaokou to use all her strength to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. In order to earn more money, anytime someone was needed to cover the night shift in the brainwashing center, she always volunteered. Later on she was transferred to Zhipingshe District, Chenjiadun, Qiaokou District. She confiscated practitioners' books, tapes, and so on, but she never provided a list of confiscated items or showed a search warrant. Practitioners clarified the truth to her, but she did not listen. In September 2007, during the the 17th CCP Central Committee meeting, Cao Youzhen illegally searched and tried to take practitioner Xiao Yingxue into custody. Because the practitioner resisted and the neighbors had righteous thoughts, her attempt failed.

After that, Cao Youzhen developed cancer. Less than half a year later, she met died on April 3, 2008. She was just over forty years old.

Villagers hostile toward Dafa from Xincheng, Han Dian Town, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province, experience karmic retribution

  1. Qiao Zhiguo, a villager from Xincheng Village, followed Jiang's regime to persecute Falun Gong ever since July 20, 1999. In order to make more money, he monitored what practitioners did every day, abused them, took down truth clarification banners, scratched out truth-clarification messages, and tore up flyers. He also threw copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party into a toilet. Dafa disciples told him the truth many times, but he did not listen to them. In the spring of 2005, he had cerebral thrombus and was confined to a hospital. He spent several thousand yuan but did not recover.

  2. A villager, Sun Chengzhi, always acted as a CCP accomplice, tore up Dafa flyers, and scolded Dafa disciples on the street many times. In the winter of 2001, he and his sons chased down several practitioners and beat and abused them. In a short time, one of his two sons was arrested and the other one was sentenced. They are both still detained. At the beginning of 2008, he saw several practitioners and said to them, "In 2008 during the Olympic Games, the CCP will persecute you to death." Only a few days later, he died suddenly.

  3. Brothers Wang Yongguo and Wang Yongbang suffered much persecution during the Great Cultivation Revolution because their family were landlords. They unfortunately forgot the pain of their own experience. When the CCP began its persecution of Falun Gong, both of them followed along. Wang Yongbang took down banners, tore up flyers, and abused Dafa disciples. Later on, he had a serious disease, which cost him almost 10,000 "yuan". Wang Yongguo did not listen when practitioners went to his home to clarify the truth to him many times. Each time, he threw them out and heaped abuse on them. Not long after, Wang Yongguo drove a horse-drawn vehicle to handle matters in town. The vehicle turned over in a ditch and he broke his leg. After this, he had a quarrel with another person who stabbed him with a knife. On April 27, 2008, the brothers Wang Yongguo and Wang Yongbang had a dispute over money. Wang Yongguo's nephew hit him in the head with an iron tool. He is still confined to a hospital. Wang Yongbang was detained.

Yu Guanghong, a policeman from Changchun Road Police Station, Chuanying District, Jilin City, accidentally shot himself and died

Yu Guanghong is 54 years old. Since July 20, 1999, he followed Jiang Zemin to act as a vanguard to persecute Dafa disciples. Up until last year, over 20 Dafa disciples had been illegally arrested, persecuted, sent to forced labor camps, imprisoned, and sent to brainwashing centers due to his actions.(He was on the list of evil people in 2005.) On the evening of April 24, 2008, when Yu Guanghong was on-duty and trying to stop a fight, he fired a shot in the air. In the confusion, he fired a bullet through his own neck and died instantly. We hope more police officers become clearheaded, cease doing evil, and quit the CCP and its associated organizations as soon as possible to be saved.
