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.

In February 2008, Yang led several policemen in an attempt to arrest a practitioner, which caused this practitioner to go into exile. In the middle of June 2008, with the excuse of checking farm chemicals, Yang tried to find out about a practitioner's whereabouts in order to arrest him. Several days later, Yang had an accident on Hwy 308, near Nangong Rd, Luancheng County while he was on duty. His car rolled over into a ditch at the side of the road and he was severely injured. Currently, he is still in the hospital and had to have two surgeries.

4. A village official in Xinzaidian Town was involved in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. He had harassed practitioners and claimed to have punished anyone who even just practiced the Falun Gong exercises. In 2002, he was diagnosed with cerebral thrombosis, which caused him to be unable to speak clearly. Practitioners followed the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and clarified the facts to him.
