Dallas Shooter Sent Home From Afghanistan After Sexual Harassment Allegation
Micah Johnson, the man who opened fire on police officers Thursday night in Dallas, was sent home from Afghanistan after an alleged sexual harassment claim. The May 2014 accusation from a female soldier led to an Army recommendation of an “other than honorable discharge,” according to the military lawyer who represented Johnson. The alleged victim said in a court filing that she wished Johnson would “receive mental help.” Johnson, 25, served in the U.S. Army Reserves and sympathized with black militant groups. He killed five police officers and injured seven others at the conclusion of a Black Lives Matter protest.
