VIC Police Officer Resigns, Claims Andrews Has Politicised Police Force

Veteran police officer Krystie Mitchell has sensationally quit Victoria Police, criticised Dan Andrews’ politicisation of the force, and claimed hundreds of colleagues silently share her views.

In a bombshell interview last week, Acting Police Sergeant Krystie Mitchell has resigned from Victoria Police.

She took direct aim at Dan Andrews for politicising the police force, making protesting illegal, and handing down COVID rules that many of her colleagues do not believe in and do not want to enforce.

Mitchell, who was interviewed by Matthew Wong from Discernable, is a 16-year police veteran.

She claims the Andrews government now wields undue power over law enforcement in Victoria, using it to enforce draconian lockdown policies in Melbourne, now the most locked-down city in the world.

“The consequences of me being here today, is that I will be resigning from Victoria Police, effective the end of this interview, because the consequences of me coming out publicly would be dismissal,” Mitchell told Wong, explaining that hundreds of fellow officers felt the same but were afraid of jeopardising their career by speaking out.

She added:

“I’m choosing to quit because I can’t remedy in my soul anymore the way in which my organisation — which I loved to work for — is being used, and the damage that it’s causing to the reputation of Victoria Police and the damage that it’s causing to the community.”


Over recent weeks, international media outlets, foreign MPs and protesters in New York City have strongly criticised Australia for its human rights abuses, mainly over the events that have taken place in Melbourne.

As LifeSiteNews reports:

Victoria Police’s use of unprecedented tactics on Australian citizens … include the indefinite closure of businesses, the closure of state borders, the imposition of a no-fly order over the city of Melbourne in order to prevent live footage of police activities by media helicopters, the use of agents provocateurs to subvert protesters, the use of heavily armed paramilitary police and counter terrorism units, the parading of armored vehicles within the Melbourne CBD, police brutality against unsuspecting or incapacitated victims, the firing of rubber bullets indiscriminately at unarmed protesters at close proximity leading to serious injury, and the arrest of protesters or political dissidents using facial recognition technology or social media activity.

“I hate this divisive language that is being used. Calling protests illegal I just think is ridiculous. The only reason that protests are illegal is because Daniel Andrews made it so,” Mitchell explains in the interview.

“By Daniel Andrews making protests illegal, he is responsible for the increase in violence that has occurred as a result from police and from protesters. By making it illegal, Daniel Andrews, in my opinion, has escalated the violence.”

Among the most concerning claims Mitchell made is that Victoria Police officers risk being terminated if they show support for anti-government viewpoints.

Recent “code of practice” changes have made it impossible for police officers to post any political opinions on social media.

“All of my friends that are police officers working the frontline and are suffering every day enforcing CHO [Chief Health Officer] directions that the vast majority, certainly a great majority, don’t believe in and don’t want to enforce,” Mitchell said.

Her words are corroborated by a recent undercover video filmed of a VicPol police officer who was out on the street enforcing Andrews government policies even though he disagrees with them. “We get paid to do this mate. I’m just as over this f—ing protest as you are. And by protest I mean lockdowns,” the officer said in the footage.

“My wife’s in the same position. She’s out of a job at the moment. I understand.”

Dan Andrews is currently being investigated by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) over allegations of branch-stacking within the Labor Party.

As reported by LifeSiteNews:

“Critics have speculated that this investigation may extend beyond COVID-related public health orders, and may expose Dan Andrews’ ‘Belt and Road’ deal with the Chinese Communist Party.”

The hearings are expected to run for five weeks.
