Victoria police officer reveals locked Melbourne and exits power

A senior Victoria police officer has quit her job after condemning the harsh tactics used in her state to enforce the lockdown in an explosive interview.

Acting senior sergeant Krystle Mitchell announced she would hand over her badge after 16 years with police during an interview with Discernable.

Acting Sergeant Mitchell said she had seen relations between society and police deteriorate while Melbourne was stuck in the longest and toughest lockdown in the world.

She claimed that the heavy police presence had even made her nervous about walking the streets while wearing plain clothes.

‘When I’m in plain clothes and training, and when I walk past the police, I have the same anxiety,’ she said.

‘I have a medical dispensation and I do not wear a mask. My partner and I were out walking during our two hour exercise on the weekend and there were police everywhere.

‘There were just police doing their’ insurance patrols’. They are not ‘insurance patrols’. You do not reassure anyone in the community. You scare people that there are so many police in the community. ‘

Melbourne has been hit by home bookings six times since the pandemic began in early 2020.

Residents have endured a total of 251 days of lockdown. The figure breaks a 244-day record in Beunos Aires, Argentina.

Acting Sergeant Mitchell said tensions had reached the boiling point between the community and police.

‘It has grown since March 2020,’ she said. ‘The way we are politicizing now has changed completely.

‘And the vast majority of the police are on their way, there are violations of your everyday freedoms and rights to just live freely in a democratic society.’

Melbourne has been at the center of several major anti-vaccination and anti-lockdown rallies throughout the pandemic.

Demonstrations against mandatory vaccinations for construction workers became ugly when hundreds of protesters clashed with police in September.

“There’s an air of discomfort at it all,” said Acting Sergeant Mitchell.

‘I used to like making foot patrols. I loved it. It was a great way to connect with communities. ‘

Sergeant Mitchell claimed she was likely to be fired by police because of the interview. She then made the decision to quit to get a start.

‘The consequence of me being here today is that I withdraw from Victoria Police effectively at the end of this interview because the consequence of me coming out in public would be dismissal,’ she said.

However, it has been reported that Mitchell resigned from Victoria Police on Friday morning before the video was released.

It is understood that she is being investigated by the Professional Standards Command.

She is currently on personal leave and will not return to work.

Mrs Mitchell has claimed to be the founder of a group of police officers who are opposed to mandatory force vaccination.

Prior to her resignation, she worked in a non-operational role as part of the Gender and Inclusion Command.
