(Clearwisdom.net) Editors' Note: Each time we publish news of this nature, 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 have been different.

Wei Zhaotian was a former Political Security section head with the Fucheng County Police Department. He was also a member of the 610 Office.. He died suddenly one evening in early April 2009, in the Dongli Resident Area Security Office of Fucheng Town. He was 57 years old. Wei had closely followed Jiang's regime to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. He personally arrested and brutally tortured practitioners many times, and also extorted money from them.

When the persecution began on July 20, 1999, Wei intended to gain political recognition by actively persecuting Falun Gong. He arrested practitioner Ms. Liu Shuxiang from Cuimiao Town and took her to the police department. He beat Ms. Liu so brutally that her clothes were soaked in blood. On October 10, he arrested several practitioners, including Wu Jinhong, Guo Xingfen, and Liu Jianguo. Wei then illegally interrogated them at the police department. He beat practitioners with a broom, and one practitioner's nose was injured. The practitioner had blood and bruises on his face. Wei arrested Ms. Wu Jinlian twice and beat her with a broom, and also deprived her of sleep and access to the bathroom. Wei detained Ms. Wu for more than a month and extorted 570 yuan from her.

On July 20, 2000, Wei beat practitioners Wu Jinhong and Si Yanfen in the county detention center. De to the beating, Si Yanfen lost two teeth. She was detained for more than a month and wasn't released until she paid 4000 yuan. Wei also detained several other practitioners at the county detention center. These were practitioners who went to Beijing to appeal, including Xi Surong, Song Canzeng, and An Rongqing. Wei defamed Falun Gong's Master, swore at practitioners, and beat them. He pulled out one third of Song Canzeng's hair. He also twisted a wire onto a broom handle and beat An Rongqing with it until there was blood everywhere. Wei also detained An Rongqing's son--who was less than ten years old at that time--for several days when An's wife was detained at the detention center. An's parents were already in their eighties and they had a difficult life together with An's son. After detaining practitioners for several months, Wei extorted 2000-4000 yuan from each practitioner before releasing them.

Practitioners' relatives, as well as Wei's relatives asked him many times to stop persecuting Falun Gong, and to stop acting as a thug for the Jiang regime, but Wei didn't listen and continued doing bad deeds.

It is a heavenly law that good is rewarded and evil meets retribution. One evening at about 9:00 p.m. in early April 2009, there was an accident in Dongli Resident Area of Fucheng Town. Security officers contacted Wei, who was head of the Hengshui Security Company, Fucheng Branch. When reviewing the videotape, it appears that Wei suddenly lied down and died before he could say anything.

Falun Gong practitioners do not want to see people receive karmic retribution for persecuting Falun Gong. The reason practitioners risk their lives to clarify the truth to people is to stop them from doing bad deeds.
