Officer John GaleIt was Tuesday morning; the sun was just on the brink of shinning on the great beautiful city of Miami. Sitting in his car, Officer John Gale was sipping his early morning coffee, getting ready for a long day ahead. Gale was tall, by his appearance he seemed to come from a Cuban background.
