As for Santa Prisca, it's known for being somewhat corrupt (in the comics at learst), and the Team may not have had any authority to apprehend anyone there. So it's possible that even if the cultists were taken in, they may have been let go immediately after.

That being said, I got the sense from the story that Hal didn't kill the guy as much as disrupt him. I think it was the feeling that the guy was so much more powerful than a single GL that Hal couldn't kill that guy if he tried. But that's a grown-up reading this comic and the ambiguity isn't something I care much for now that it's pointed out.
Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this comic. The GL story was OK but felt somewhat inconsequential and borderline non-sensical. The YJ story was so slight that it was completely unsatisfying. The Superman Family story was cute, but just a kid-friendly recap of Superman. Well done for what it was, but also extremely well-worn material.
