About this submission

"Dregs," is a project unraveling the internal conflict of Sergeant Leung, a minority officer. As a Chinese living in the U.S., the tale of a conflicted Asian police officer hits close to home.

Sergeant Pleads Guilty to Assault Charges in Violent Arrests," and his apathetic face during the trial has been etched in my memory, despite his apathetic face.
