(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.

Lu Xiutian Diagnosed with Cancer After Becoming Wealthy from Persecuting Practitioners and their Families

Between July 20, 1999 and December 31, 2004, Lu Xiutian, chief of the Political Security Section at the Junan Police Department in Linyi, Shandong Province, was an active participant in the persecution of Falun Gong. He followed closely the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) directives and was one of the main instigators and participants in the persecution of Falun Gong. He tortured practitioners by using rubber clubs and electric batons to beat and shock them. He stole a lot of money when searching practitioners’ homes and sent the practitioners to prisons and forced labor camps. He also extorted money from practitioners’ workplaces and their families.

Lu Xiutian received what he deserved. He was diagnosed with cancer of the spleen.

Lu Xiutian, male, in his fifties, lives in Junan County, Shandong Province. His hometown is Big Laopo Village, Laopo Town in Junan County. He has three brothers and three sisters, and is the second in the family. He is known to be very unfriendly and selfish. He is also known in the local Police Department for being brutal and vicious, and his nickname is “Lu who dares to take.” He is not liked within the bureau, and other departments didn't want him on their teams. Eventually he became a member of the National Security Brigade, formerly called the Political Security Section.

Taking Six Year Old Child Hostage and Breaking up a Family

On the morning of May 31, 2001, police officer Lu Xiutian took a group of people to practitioner Ms. Fu Guiying’s home in Zhujia Village, Fangqian Town. Ms. Fu was not at home, so they unlocked the gate and stole all the valuable items in Ms. Fu’s house, including a television, VCD player, cellphone and charger, 3,000 yuan in cash, and Falun Gong related materials. They also arrested her husband, who was on his way to fetch his daughter at school. The six-year-old girl was taken from school by police officers and held hostage so the police could arrest her mother. Ms. Fu became homeless to evade persecution. Her daughter was raised at her sister-in-law’s home.

Ms. Han Guanglian Beaten for Over Four Hours Until the Rubber Club Broke

Ms. Han Guanglian, in her forties, became a practitioner in 1999. She lived in Hot Spring Village, Crossroad Town, Junan County. After many years of suffering a number of illnesses she became healthy after she began practicing Falun Gong. She also became good-tempered and her family became harmonious. Her relationship with her mother-in-law improved because she knew that she should no longer mistreat people. She lived by the Falun Gong principles “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”

Ms. Han was at home doing chores with her husband on November 17, 1999, at around 1:00 p.m., when Lu Xiutian and Qizheng Yang from the Junan Police Department, and ten people from the East Town Police Station came to her home and ransacked it. They found several pages of truth clarification flyers, so they took Ms. Han to the East Town Police Station at 3:30 p.m.

At the police station, Ms. Han was forced to sit on the cold concrete floor, with her legs and arms stretched forward. Lu Xiutian then took a rubber club and cruelly beat Ms. Han, especially below the knees. Three to four people joined the torture session, including Xu Tianzhong. They beat her while demanding she tell who gave her the flyers. Lu Xiutian beat her with the rubber club on one side, while Xu burned her hand with a cigarette. When her hand was up, he burned the back of the hand; when her hand was down, he burned her palm. Sometimes, all four to five people beat her together and some stood on her feet.

Ms. Han was beaten black and blue. When she was sweating, they took off her coat and continued with the beating until the rubber club broke. Lu Xiutian fetched another club and continued beating her head and shoulders until 8:00 p.m., a total of five hours.

The officers were hungry and tired and went to have a meal. By that time, Ms. Han could no longer stand up. Before Lu Xiutian left, he said, “I will take off your muscles, your bones and your skin tomorrow!”

Lu Xiutian and Others Beat Ms. Qian Jinhua’s Legs and Shock Her Face With Electric Batons

Ms. Qian Jinhua, 40, is a practitioner from Pengjia Shigou Village, Dadian Town, Junan County. She started to practice Falun Gong in July 1998. Before practicing Falun Gong she suffered from many illnesses, including heart palpitations, anemia, low blood pressure, nervous system weaknesses, drooping eyelids, as well as stomach and gynecological problems. Not long after she started the practice she became healthy. Her family life also became harmonious and she understood how to be a good person. She once found money on the street and spent a month finding the owner.

On the evening of November 18, 2000, Ms. Qian went to a village to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa with fellow practitioners. They were reported to the police and arrested. On November 19, police officer Lu Xiutian, Ma Zongtao, and a few others ransacked Ms. Qian’s home. They confiscated all Falun Dafa books and a tape recorder. The former secretary of Shigou Village became scared and invited Lu and Ma and others for a dinner which cost about 300 yuan. After the dinner, Ma forced Ms. Qian to sit on the concrete floor. He beat and cursed at her in an effort to find out where she got the materials, but was unsuccessful. They then used a rubber club to beat her legs every time they asked a question. Later, they stepped on Jinhua’s feet and bent her feet towards her instep. Lu also used an electric baton to shock her face. At the same time, Li Mi from the Dadian Police Station beat her with a rubber club. Ms. Qian refused to give any information. They detained her for 15 days, and extorted 320 yuan for meals and 20 yuan as a deposit. At that time, Jinhua had a two-year-old child.

Mr. Qian Fajun Tortured

In late 2000, police officer Lu Xiutian and Yang Qizheng drove to Junan and beat practitioner Mr. Qian Fajun because of a petition. They asked him unsuccessfully who organized the petition. They shackled his hands and forced him to sit on the cold concrete floor with legs and arms stretched straight. Lu used all his strength to beat Mr. Qian's arms, elbows, wrists, fingers, thighs, knees, front legs, ankles, and feet. As Mr. Qian screamed in pain, Lu and Yang stuffed a cloth in his mouth. Lu shackled Mr. Qian to the leg of the desk and used a rubber club to hit him. That night, two officers on duty dared not watch how Lu tortured Mr. Qian. Mr. Qian's legs were dark blue and he could barely walk.

Lu Xiutian Receives Retribution for His Deeds

Police officer Lu Xiutian violated existing Chinese law. Because of his misdeeds, his family also suffered misfortune. Lu never felt remorse for his misdeeds.

Lu used the money to open a restaurant named Yanping after his wife. However, he failed in this business endeavor and had to sell the restaurant.

Lu was diagnosed with spleen cancer and has to undergo frequent chemotherapy. He spends 800 yuan daily for medication.

Practitioners warned him of the consequences of participating in the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners, but he refused to listen. He has thus ruined his and his family’s happiness and future.

In addition to the above, it has been learned that more practitioners were recently arrested in Linyi City, Shandong Province. I hope those people who work in the 610 Office and public security offices who continue persecuting practitioners will awaken, change their ways, and ensure bright futures for themselves.
