An 18-year-old man was convicted of second-degree murder Wednesday for taking part in the mob beating of a Vietnamese-American student who objected to being called racist names. Bradley Mills was one of seven people charged with murdering Luyen Phan Nguyen, 19, and the first to go on trial. He faces a maximum of life in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 23. Nguyen, a University of Miami pre-med student, was attacked after he objected to the racial slurs made at a party.

Nguyen has disciplined himself to look away, not to react. "I don't like to give them the satisfaction of getting angry," he explains.
