5 teens killed on New Orleans street

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Five people ranging in age from 16 to 19 were killed in a street shooting early Saturday, the most violent crime reported in this slowly repopulating city since hurricane Katrina hit last August.

All were believed to have been gunned down in a volley of bullets on a street in the Central City neighbourhood just outside the central business district. Three of the victims were found in a sport utility vehicle rammed against a utility pole and two were found nearby on the street.

Authorities said they were looking for one or more suspects but did not elaborate.

Capt. John Bryson said police think the shootings were either drug-related or some type of retaliation attack. A semiautomatic weapon was used and "multiple, multiple rounds" were fired, he said.

they have people in custody, they'll be charged, if found guilty, they go to jail, and look for a penpal.

with a molotov cocktail, or a broken 12 volt lightbulb placed in the neck of the fuel tank awaiting only the functioning of the switch one chooses to attach the wiring to (dome light, headlights, brakelights, backup lights, left turn signal, right turn signal, windshield wiper, and the list goes on).

Or with a machete, bolo, Assagai, bow, cinderblocks and overpass, etc. (the potential possibilities are quite numerable including a balloon of ether and a razor blade or ice pick or yes, even a box cutter!)

The tool is not responsible for the actions of the user as any user can misuse any tool (look how Liberals misuse the court system to make law by judicial fiat rather than as the Constitution mandates).

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?
