(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.

Liu Rongyou, an evildoer with the 610 Office in Qingzhou City, Shandong Province, suddenly suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on January 21, 2009. After undergoing major surgery, he remains unconscious. According to a doctor, if he survives at all he will be brain-dead.

Liu Rongyou was previously the Party branch secretary of the Qingzhou City Foundation. He used to "study" Falun Gong using the ways that he employed in the bureaucratic jungle. At that time, he studied Falun Gong very actively but with strong attachments to pursuing fame, self-interest, and showing off. Many practitioners advised him about that, but he was presumptuous and opinionated. In 2000, after being brainwashed in a forced labor camp, Liu Rongyou joined the 610 Office and persecuted practitioners with unmitigated frenzy. In order to show his "capabilities," Liu Rongyou used methods such as sleep deprivation, freezing with cold water, beatings, etc. to force practitioners to give up their belief.

The method that Liu Rongyou used most often was to randomly state that somebody or other was possessed by animal spirits. Claiming to be "taking away the evil," he pressed practitioners onto a bed or to the ground and wildly pinched, touched, squeezed, and dug his nails into their sensitive parts. After having been persecuted for many days by sleep deprivation and other means, these practitioners would have no strength to resist. Liu Rongyou even madly yelled, "Die now or die later, everybody has to die sooner or later." Over the past several years, in forced-labor camps and brainwashing centers, he worked himself to exhaustion for the regime that persecutes Falun Gong. He used many malicious tactics to persecute practitioners. He persecuted Mr. Zhang Xinzhong and Ms. Li Xiumei to death, and he tormented several other practitioners, leaving them physically disabled and near death.

Liu Rongyou has committed numerous atrocities. Many practitioners again and again clarified the truth to him, advised him to accumulate virtue, and spoke to him about the principle of cause and effect wherein good deeds bring rewards and bad deeds meet with retribution. He did not listen at all and kept committing crimes.

We again advise those who commit crimes against Dafa to immediately stop before it's too late. Otherwise, the consequences will be tragic. For the sake of oneself and for the sake of one's family, please no longer commit crimes against good people, please no longer commit crimes against Falun Gong and Falun Gong's practitioners.
