On August 1 1966 Charles Whitman ascended the University of Texas Tower and committed what was then the largest simultaneous mass murder in American history. He gunned down forty-five people inside and around the Tower before he was killed by two Austin police officers. In addition to promoting the rise of S.W.A.T. teams to respond to future crises the murders spawned debates over issues which still plague America today: domestic violence child abuse drug abuse military indoctrination the insanity defense and the delicate balance between civil liberties and public safety.
