August 1, 1966, is a day that will live in infamy in the United States, particularly at the University of Texas. That's the day Charles Whitman, Jr., spent hours sniping down innocent students, professors, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, and children from the top of the tower on the University of Texas campus. While many people know of the shooting, very few learned what caused Charles to snap or why it took so long for police to stop his massacre. Many also don't appreciate what dark legacy Whitman's evil left on this world.
