(Clearwisdom.net) 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.

Inmate Wang Yanbin in Wangchun Labor Camp Receives Karmic Retribution

Shandong No. 2 Labor Camp (formerly Wangchun Labour Camp) has been using prisoners as hatchet men to persecute Dafa disciples. Prisoners there beat Dafa disciples and torture them in the staff break rooms. Many prisoners have received karmic retribution for persecuting practitioners. Some suddenly fell sick and some of them lost their voices soon after they verbally abused practitioners. Among the many cases of karmic retribution the most shocking example was when thief Wang Yanbin from northeastern China suddenly died on February 21, 2008.

This was how it happened: On the night of February 21, Wang Yanbin seemed healthy and energetic before he went to bed. According to the video guard Li Gongming played, he even smoked a cigarette on the toilet after everyone had gone to bed. After that he climbed up to the upper bed and went to sleep. At half past five the next morning when everyone was up, they discovered that he was still not up. Someone tried to wake him up and discovered that his body had already gone stiff and his face had turned purple. He was no longer breathing. Later Li Gongming announced that Wang Yanbin passed away around midnight.

The so-called general education team leader Shi Changhong (from Changle, Weifang) nervously ran toward the isolation door and reported this matter to guard team leader on duty Luo Guangrong. Luo Guangrong quickly ordered everyone to go back to their dormitories. Later, the camp doctor on duty, the administration management section leader (whose surname is Liu) and political commissar of the labor camp (whose surname is Xin) went to the office of the 7th team to check the data on the computer.

After checking again and again, the doctor on duty and Luo Guangrong took several people and carried Wan Yanbin out of the 7th team on a stretcher. The guards connected oxygen to Wang Yanbin's dead body, putting on an act as if they were trying to resuscitate him. Wang Yanbin's roommates were driven away to another room and not allowed to watch.

Luo Guangrong returned to Wang Yanbin's dormitory to search Wang's clothes and things left behind. Wang's roommates were allowed back to their room. Just then, a sad cry of "Oooh, oooh, oooh ..." (like a ghost sound) appeared in the quiet corridor. Everyone in Wang's room including Luo Guangrong and many others in the next room all heard it. The sound happened twice, at such an early hour in the quiet corridor, sending cold shivers down one's spine. Luo Guangrong ordered someone to check who was in the corridor. That person returned saying no one was there. Luo ordered another prisoner Sun Changhui to have a look. He also said there was no one there. Luo Guangrong didn't say anything any more. His face turned blue in fright!

Wang Yanbin, a north-easterner, 29 years old, had a strong physique, and was once a soldier. During those days in the labor camp he was the leader of the 6th class of the 7th team. He used to verbally abuse people and repeatedly beat Dafa practitioners under instigation of the guards. Not long before he died, it was said that he had beaten Wu Kejian, a Dafa practitioner from Weifang and others who were on hunger strike to resist the persecution. He had also beaten practitioner Xu Yunhua.

Hengyang Political Consultative Conference Vice-President Under Investigation for Corruption

The primary person responsible for persecuting Dafa disciples in his area is Cai Duncheng, the former Qidong County Party Committee Secretary and the current Political Consultative Conference Vice-President for Hengyang City. He has recently been under investigation for corruption by the Commission for Inspecting Discipline of the province. Former party secretary of the Politics and Law Committee of Qidong County Xiao Guansheng (retired for two years) was also arrested.

Director of Bagualing Police Station in Hebei Province Dies from Cerebral Hemorrhage and Other Retribution Cases

Wang Tiejun, male, over 40, was formerly the director of Bagualing Police Station in Xinglong County. When he was at his post, he repeatedly participated in the persecution and arrested Dafa disciples. At the end of 2004, he suddenly died from cerebral hemorrhage.

There is also a peasant Li in a small village at the northern mountain area of Tangshan who loves money. The village cadre discovered that Dafa disciples there had been putting up truth-clarification signs in the area. The cadre found him and asked him to tear up the signs. He did so accordingly for the money. But not long after that, he felt uncomfortable all over his body and started to get sick. He spent over 1,000 yuan for a check up in the hospital. Later, Dafa disciples told him about the goodness of Dafa and how it is persecuted unjustly. They told him not to do things like that again so as to avoid receiving karmic retribution. He said that he would never do such things again for any amount of money.

There is a doctor in a small village in a mountain area of Xinglong County who was seriously deceived by the CCP and didn't have a good understanding of Dafa. He wouldn't listen when Dafa disciples clarified the facts to him. He got rid of all the truth-clarifying signs Dafa disciples put on the wall of his clinic. He destroyed signs three times and verbally abused Dafa, and also said, "I don't believe in retribution." Not long after that, he caught an incurable disease. He spent over 100,000 yuan but still could not cure it. He died within a year.
