OC Sheriff Investigated Over Capitol Riot Connection


Yet another police officer is being investigated for participating in the capitol riot Jan. 6.

Special Officer Monica Alston is under local and federal investigation in connection with the riot.

Alston posted photos of herself on social media during the Trump speech outside the Capitol and , undaunted, videoed herself inside the capitol.

She was placed on paid (why?) leave Jan. 21 by the department pending an internal investigation.

According to published accounts the FBI last month searched her Irvine home.

A special officer is not a full deputy and does not retain a deputy’s police powers when off duty.

Alston is not the latest sheriff’s employee investigated for right-wing activity. Last year, a 13-year deputy was investigated for wearing an Oathkeeper patch on his uniform as well as the logo of the “Three Percenters.”

Experts say right-wingers are pervasive among our police forces.
