The data merely shows that the percentage of cases that are actively prosecuted has gone down. This could be due to a multitude of reasons, including: the actual percentage of civil rights crimes has gone down, the previous percentages of civil rights prosecutions were high due to overzealous prosecutors, better coordination during investigations leading to cases with little merit/proof not being drawn into the court system.

So you might want to reconsider your stance Chicken Little.

As you say there are a multitude of possibilities, but protecting minorities or enforcing Civil Rights are not among them.

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?
