What Happened To Broken Tooth?
What Happened To Broken Tooth?

AIR DATE: March 11, 2013

Broken Tooth was one of Macau's most notorious gangsters when he was locked up in 1998, shortly before Portuguese authorities handed the territory back over to the Chinese government. In the years since, the city has tranformed from a lawless backwater to an international gambling destination. There's little use for a gangster like Broken Tooth in today's Macau. We'll talk about the city's transformation, and how the triads have evolved to stay in business.
