In this picture, taken in May 1998, Wan Kuok-koi (popularly known as Broken Tooth), the then-criminal king of Macau, enters a courthouse, where he was charged and convicted for involvement in triad activities. When Broken Tooth was released from prison on Dec. 1, 2012, he bashfully told a reporter that "I don't want to affect the stability of Macau. There's absolutely no way I want to do that. I want to be left alone."
