The Houtari(spellling?) Militia who have been arrested under the 1790 law against sedition (Remember being taught about the Whiskey Wars). The declared plan was to kill a police officer, and then bomb the funeral in order to kill more police officers with the hope of provoking some species of anti-government uprising.

After being arrested, they asked for something unusual. Government supplied and paid for legal representation. If they don't believe in American Government, why do they believe they will receive fair representation, and if the do, haven't they indulged in the supreme example of an oxymoron. Certainly the last two syllables are appropriate judging by the information coming out of the 9 peculiar men arrested.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
