to ship all OUR child-sex offenders to VietNam so they can mete out the same punishment? Ship 'em out BEFORE trial here so there's no chance of double-jeopardy....send all the evidence with them, and have video taped testimony from the victims sent along with it so the kids don't have to travel for a trial.

Works for me, at least.

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?
