Crime & punishment, or, you might just call it K-A-R-M-A, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
A man, Wu, three years ago, was caught, stealing a car, the police took his DNA for comparison, and found that he was involved in the breaking and entering of a residence, along with raping of two women sixteen years ago; at first, he’d only admitted to auto theft, and claimed, “I’m exercising my right to remain silent”, until he was prosecuted by the prosecutors, did he finally admit to everything. The high courts maintained the judgments of his first trial, and gave him twenty years for robbery and forced sexual acts, and he’s still able to appeal.
The verdict stated, that on the noon of November 17, 1998, Wu had a pantyhose on his head, and broke into a residence in Shijr, saw two women reading the Holy Bible in the living room, used a knife and told them NOT to make a sound, then, he’d duct-taped them, took all their belongings, then, raped them separately, took them to the bathrooms to get cleaned off, then, ran off with the properties he’d stolen; the police managed to recover his DNA at the scene, but because there was NOTHING to compare it with, so, they couldn’t identify him.
In the afternoon of March 8, 2008, Wu used the same methods, broke into a residential area in Shulin, to steal a purse, and because he’d made loud noises, he’d waken up the man in the house, he’d stabbed the man, along with his friends, then, made his escape, and the pantyhose he’d left behind, the police were able to extract DNA from.
In the morning of July fourth, 2011, Wu stole a truck in Wanhua, after he was caught, the police cross-checked his DNA, and found him responsible for the breaking and entering, along with the rapes.
So, this man was “at large” for a very long time, but, eventually HIS own bad karma caught up to him, and, this time, he wasn’t able to break away from the consequences of his accumulated bad deeds, and that just tells you all, that IF you do something bad, you WILL get CAUGHT, maybe not now, today, tomorrow, or, in the near future even, BUT, you WILL get C-A-U-G-H-T, and, when you are, you WILL be forced to take whatever’s coming to you!!!
