(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.

Deputy Chief of the Pinggu District National Security Group in Beijing Died of Karmic Retribution

The Deputy Chief of Pinggu District National Security Group in Beijing City, Zhang Daming, died about one month ago from a heart attack. He was only in his 30s. His death was a great shock to the Pinggu District Police Department.

After transferring to the National Security Group in 2001, Zhang Daming became directly involved in all aspects of the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. He was promoted to Deputy Chief for this very reason. Practitioners from the Pinggu District clarified the truth to him several times, and he had even shown some regret. Unfortunately, he could not let go of the control of the evil party and received karmic retribution.

Dong Wenyi of Zibo City, Shandong Province Died of Karmic Retribution

Dong Wenyi from the Zichuan District in Zibo City, Shandong Province, was about 45 years old. He rented an apartment on the 4th floor of the Nanlin Building #2 of the Affiliated Kindergarten of Banyang Elementary School. During the day, he worked for the motorcycle maintenance department of Zihonglu Automotive Service Center, which has since moved to the suburbs. In the evenings, he was a "police assistant" and, as such, directly involved in monitoring and following local Falun Gong practitioners. In November 2007, Dong Wenyi followed practitioner Ms. Sun Xia, who was retired from the Zichuan Fuel Company, and was directly responsible for her arrest by the Zichuan District 610 Office, which led to her detention in Zibo Detention Center. This incident created a lot of difficulties for her family and relatives.

Around 4 p.m on November 29, 2009, while waiting for a bus in Lingzhao Village in the Zichuan District, Dong Wenyi was hit by a car and died instantly.

Would that everyone who has followed the CCP to persecute Falun Gong could learn from other people's experiences, be able to distinguish good from evil, treat Falun Gong practitioners well, and have a bright future.
