(Clearwisdom.net) 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 invite due retribution. Articles such as this 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 courses of wrongdoing may they escape karmic retribution.

Sun Shuwen was the former director general of the Lalin Police Branch Office. Before he took the post, the branch office had a debt of 100 thousand yuan.

While investigating a case this year, Sun Shuwen was injured by the people he was investigating. After that, it was discovered that he had set up private gambling places.
