Out of respect for Sgt. Johnson, it seems like the headline and lede could have been phrased a bit more tastefully. The English language sometimes has usages that are normally innocuous, such as terms for labor shifts, that can take on unfortunate and ironic twists in uncommon contexts. Perhaps "late night" instead?
