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 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.
Since 1999, a police officer named Chen Haiyin from Gucheng County, Hebei Province has been actively persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners, always taking the lead in arresting and detaining practitioners.
The detention center in Gucheng County held hundreds of Falun Dafa practitioners, and most of them had endured brutal beatings at Chen's hands. Many practitioners had told him the facts about Falun Dafa, but he refused to listen and beat them anyway. A 50-year-old practitioner named Zhang Guizhi was beaten so severely that her face was badly deformed. Every morning, Chen Haiyin beat and cursed at anyone found doing the Falun Dafa exercises. Those who did not stop the exercises immediately were dragged outside and forced to kneel or stand while the beatings continued.
Chen Haiyin previously worked exclusively at a detention center, but because of his role in carrying out the persecution, he was regularly assigned to the Public Security Bureau. He stopped at nothing in arresting, beating, and robbing Falun Dafa practitioners. He beat practitioners who refused to give up their beliefs relentlessly and viciously.
Chen Haiyin committed a huge sin by persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners, and he was struck down by Heaven’s vengeance. In 2011, Chen Haiyin quit his job because he was severely ill. His face was yellowish, and his appetite was gone. Falun Dafa practitioners once again told him that Falun Dafa is good, and that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. They also told him that if he had positive thoughts toward Falun Dafa, he could still be saved. Despite their efforts, Chen Haiyin refused to listen and once again cursed them. His health gradually declined, and he died on August 29, 2011.
