Dallas Morning News: Remarkable ‘Tower’ returns us to a fatal day in Austin history

The remarkable new documentary Tower takes us back to a time before school shootings were a national epidemic, a time when America’s innocence could be blown to bits by a deranged citizen with a rifle. That was 50 years ago, when engineering student Charles Whitman perched atop the University of Texas Tower and unleashed 96 minutes of terror. By the time he was done, 16 were dead and 33 injured.
