Australian Police Officer Throws Away Her Career To Speak Out Against...
If you thought it was bad here, just imagine if you were living in Australia where police are patrolling the streets trying to stop any sort of mingling to prevent the spread of covid. That's a liberal's dream. Australian police officer Krystle Mitchell had enough of bullying her neighbors and decided to speak out against the oppression her government was imposing. She appeared on The Discernible Interviews to give a career-ending interview.
"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.

"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."
This is worse than the lockdown we had here in the United States. This is next-level nanny state behavior. Mitchell is right to speak out. Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, has been under lockdown for about 252 days now. Can you imagine policing your neighbors for that long just for the hell of it, as covid cases continue to rise?
