So, some Cathoic priests abuse children, some Protestant ministers have affairs, some televangelists swindle their viewers, and some shaman Hmong shoot people while hunting. Which proves, for sure, that humanity is flawed...

The New York Times > National > Hmong Hunter Charged With 6 Murders Is Said to Be a Shaman: "The man charged with murdering six other hunters and wounding two in Wisconsin last week is a Hmong shaman who has called on the spirit world in trances that last up to three hours, his family and friends say.
The accused, Chai Soua Vang of St. Paul, seeks 'the other world' when he tries to cure sick people or invoke divine protection for those who request it, said his friend and former hunting companion Ber Xiong.
'He is a special person,' Mr. Xiong said. 'Chai speaks to the other side. He asks the spirits there to release people who are suffering on earth.'"
