The fact that this case made it this far says a lot about the lack of personal responsibility in this country. Did anyone force these people to hand over thousands of dollars to this new-age fraud? Was there a gun to their heads forcing them to sit in a big, hot tent with a bunch of simple-minded "followers"? If you can answer "YES" to these questions than by all means, find the defendant guilty!

You don't have to put a gun to someone's head to be charged with reckless manslaughter. Three people died while using the services at his business.

You expect this kind of thing of young Marines going through rigorous battle training at 29 Palms, but these deaths were just plain bonehead negligence. A sweat lodge? What was that supposed to do? Put these new age wanks in some kind of spiritual synchronicity with Native American mysticism? He'll probably be sentenced to 10 years and do 4 or 5. Maybe he'll get off. He's a "celebrity", right?
