Monday marked the 50th anniversary of the mass shooting on the University of Texas at Austin campus that took the lives of 17 people. The daughter of one of the men who stopped the rampage is now a police officer herself, patrolling the same area of Austin that her father was once assigned. As VOA's Greg Flakus reports from Austin, she represents both her father's legacy of public service and today's professional law enforcement standards.
