This is what Dems must dream about when they talk about the lockdowns and other restrictions they want to impose on Americans. Australia had put forth strict COVID restrictions to the point that police are now practically hall monitors preventing mingling and gatherings. And it’s been going on for a while now. Victoria’s capital, Melbourne has been in lockdown for 252 days. So it’s no wonder that Officer Krystle Mitchell is throwing her career away just to speak out against the harsh restrictions.
“The consequences of me being here today is that I will be resigning from Victoria Police, effective at the end of this interview, because the consequences of me coming out publicly would be dismissal,” she said. “So I’m choosing to quit, and I’m quitting because I can’t remedy in my soul anymore the way in which my organization that I love to work for is being used and the damage it’s causing in the reputation of Victoria Police and the damage it’s causing to the community.”
“My partner and I were out walking during our two hours of exercise on the weekend and there were police everywhere, I live in the city,” Mitchell explained. “There was just police everywhere doing their ‘reassurance patrols.’ They’re not ‘reassurance patrols.’ You’re not reassuring anybody in the community. You’re scaring people in the community that there’s that many police out in the city trying to stop mass gatherings or what have you.”
“The police don’t want to look you in the eye; you don’t want to look the police in the eye,” she added. “There’s this air of comfortability about it all.”
“But behind that is all of my friends that are police officers, that are working the front line and are suffering every day enforcing [the Victorian chief health officer’s] directions that a vast majority, or certainly a great majority, don’t believe in and don’t want to enforce,” Mitchell continued.

Acting Senior Sergeant Krystle Mitchell quits Victoria Police.
"I can't remedy in my soul anymore how the organisation I love is being used…and damage it’s causing in the reputation of Victoria police and the damage that it's causing in the community."
“The Victoria Police issued a statement on Mitchell’s bold and public resignation.
“The comments in this interview in no way reflect the views of Victoria Police,” the statement reads. “The CHO directions are based on health advice and set by the Victorian Government. Victoria Police cannot pick and choose what laws it enforces. We acknowledge this has been an extremely difficult time for all Victorians who have had to give up so much. Just like the community, Victoria Police looks forward to the easing of restrictions and the eventual return to pre-COVID life.”
Mitchell is of course under investigation now for daring to speak out. She wants just wants things to get back to normal. COVID numbers in Melbourne are not improving because of the lockdown, in fact, they hit an all-time high just recently. So why don’t they just let the people live their lives, and tell them to wear masks if they want… Because policing people like this is beyond excessive and infringes upon their freedom.
