The black assassin who targeted white police officers during a Black Lives Matter protest was sent home from Afghanistan after being accused of sexually harassing a female soldier
Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, who fatally shot five officers and wounded seven more before police killed him with a remote-controlled bomb in early hours of Friday, was described as a loner who followed black militant groups on social media. Johnson lived with family members in the blue-collar suburb of Mesquite, Texas, where he played basketball for hours at a time. But for six years starting in 2009, he served in the Army Reserve as a private first class with a specialty in carpentry and masonry, the military said. In May 2014, six months into his Afghanistan tour, he was accused of sexual harassment by a female soldier that involved him reportedly buying her underwear from Victoria's Secret.
