Stranger than Fiction

The readings for Criminal Law are always the most fun, and by that I mean most horrifying.

Well, after reading a number of cases about children being beaten to death, I got one a about an Arabian guru, who came to New York after spending some time in China.

Anyway the guru basically has a cult. They believe in mind over matter. The guru says he has the ability to stop his followers blood flow and the like allowing him to stab them multiple times with no injury. Apparently he has done this before and there was a witness.

Well this time it didn't go too well and and after the guru stabbed one of his followers in the heart and a few other places he died. Oh, he dies. Anyway the gurus defense is pretty much "well it worked last time."
