It's been seven years since America was shaken by terrorist attacks. One Gainesville police officer was an eyewitness to history. The officer worked for the New York Police Department, but he left less than a year after the attack, worried about what might come next.
David Reveille worked for the N.Y.P.D. for more than 10 years. He was at a golf tournament on September 11th, 2001. When he heard that a plane had crashed into the world trade center, he got to a TV just in time to see the second plane crash.
On September 12th he got to Ground Zero, and what he saw is something he never wants to see again.
"It still bothers me, still upsets me," said Reveille, "you know, that someone thinks they can come here and do this in our country and think they're gonna get away with it."
Reveille says it's less exciting being a Gainesville police officer than it was when he worked in New York City, but after September 11th, 2001, he's ok with that.
