An unassuming, petite, and stoic-looking Asian inmate blends into the McNeil Inmate Corrections Center (MICC) scenery well. With his eyes cast to the floor, with neatly shined shoes, and a well-kept outer appearance, only a name — in small sized font on an inmate badge — hints at a more complicated past: Wai-Chiu Ng.
