How strange.

Masai's blow was so forceful it actually took the camera out before it even landed.

How strange.

It's shocking that a police department with a racist history would pull shenanigans.  I grew up in a policing family.  I'm absolutely done with the nonsense that goes on.  If your camera goes off I 100% think the police are lying at this point.  Too much corruptions and next to no accountability.

Maybe he's building a giant box fort!

The tax-rate factor and how it can impact the situation:

Quote
While Ontario’s top combined federal/provincial marginal rate is high at 53.53 per cent, California’s combined tax rate comes close, at 52.65 per cent, consisting of a 37 per cent U.S. federal rate, a 2.35 per cent medicare tax for high-income earners and a California state income tax rate of 13.3 per cent.

Based on a five-year, US$189.7 million max contract the Raptors could give Leonard, his annual income works out to US$38 million. Adam Scherer, a tax partner at Crowe Soberman LLP who wrote a recent blog about the subject, estimated that Leonard’s additional tax bill from playing for the Raptors versus playing for a California team (assuming the same annual salary) would be a mere $300,000 — chump change for Leonard and less than one per cent of his gross income.

Quote
Being a Canadian tax resident, however, would subject Leonard’s worldwide income, including endorsement and investment income, to Canadian tax. That’s why many U.S. athletes who play for Canadian professional sports teams often choose to remain non-residents of Canada. Their tax rate payable, then, depends on of which state they are considered to be tax resident.
