(Minghui.org) 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.
Zhang Jianmin, male, 42, is from Hanxilou Village, Xiong County, Hebei Province. He worked as officer in police stations in four places before recently being transferred to the Longwan Police Station.
Zhang Jianmin has participated in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners many times. Falun Gong practitioners have repeatedly advised him not to get involved in the persecution, but he refused to listen, and he did not believe that “good will be rewarded, and evil will receive due retribution.” He arrested and extorted practitioners in order to make monetary gains.
On the evening of May 21, 2012, Zhang and other officers arrested four practitioners in Longwan and Daowu villages. Zhang maliciously shined a bright flashlight into the eyes of an elderly practitioner, causing the practitioner to suffer blurred vision. Zhang extorted 1400 yuan from the practitioner's family. Zhang and others also extorted 1800 yuan from another practitioner's family.
In late August 2012, Zhang Jianmin had an upset stomach and diarrhea. He went to Xiong County Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital to have a physical examination, and was diagnosed with cancer. He then went to the Beijing Cancer Hospital where he was diagnosed with spleen cancer. Just five days after he was found to have cancer, Zhang Jianmin died, leaving behind his wife and three children.
This is another tragic example of someone who betrayed his conscience and worked himself to the bone for the CCP's evil deeds and ultimately received retribution.
