Gerry Realin says he wishes he had never become a police officer.
Realin, 37, was part of the hazmat team that responded to the Pulse
Nightclub shooting in Orlando on June 12, 2016. He spent four hours taking
care of the dead inside the club. Now, triggers like a Sharpie marker or a
white sheet yank him out of the moment and back to the nightclub, where they
used Sharpies to list the victims that night and white sheets to cover them.
