KNOWN WOLF: Report shows that Army took away gun from Dallas cop shooter Micah Johnson.

A sergeant who supervised Micah Johnson, the man who killed five Dallas police officers in July, told the Army that his gun should be taken from him in 2014 because he posed a potential threat, according to a newly released Army investigation.

The report, finished in May 2014, was conducted after a female soldier complained that Johnson had sexually harassed her while they were stationed in Afghanistan and that he had stolen her underwear. Johnson knew the woman for years, and during a disagreement she recalled that he punched his hand through a car window and cut himself so badly he need to be taken to a hospital.

“The (first sergeant) told me we needed to separate” Johnson and the female soldier “as soon as possible,” the report said. “I asked if for safety reasons we should relieve [PFC] Johnson of his firearm and any bladed weapons in his possession. The (first sergeant) said that was a good idea so I had [redacted] retrieve all weapons.”

Johnson was a known issue to the Army, but apparently unknown to local police.
