Demon Waterboarded, Woman Killed

Exorcisms might seem like good old fashioned fun (to the mentally disturbed), but they often result in injury and death. Unfortunately, a 22-yea-old New Zealand woman suffered the latter. Maori tribal elders were convinced she was possessed by a demon whose spirit was unleashed after a concrete lion was stolen from in front of a hotel. Makes perfect sense. What doesn't make sense, however, is the fact that they proceeded to try and wash the demon out of her body by pouring water into her mouth and eyes. This may have worked, but we'll never know. The woman drowned. Three men and six women have been charged with manslaughter in the incident, and some of them were also charged with child cruelty for similarly attacking a 14-year-old girl, who thankfully survived. My only question here is this: FUCKING MANSLAUGHTER?? What does a crazy person have to do to be tried for murder in New Zealand? More details here.
