MELBOURNE, Australia (LifeSiteNews) — In a bombshell interview Friday, Acting Police Sergeant Krystie Mitchell resigned effective immediately from Victoria Police after 16 years of service. Mitchell revealed that the state government’s policy of violently suppressing Australian citizens was due to the growing influence of Victorian Premier Dan Andrews’ over law enforcement, using it as a tool to maintain authoritarian public health orders on the “most locked down city in the world”.
In her interview, Mitchell also warned that hundreds of fellow officers are finally refusing to cooperate with unethical orders from their superiors and are ready to resist.
In her interview with host Matthew Wong from The Discernable Interviews, Mitchell spoke about her hesitation to express her discontent due to fears of retaliation, stating, “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.”
“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,” she added.
The Australian state of Victoria has transformed into an Orwellian police state following ongoing protests against lockdowns and vaccine mandates. As a consequence, Victoria Police have gained international notoriety due to their violent suppression of protesters and dissidents who dare to criticize the government’s descent into authoritarianism.
Mitchell alluded to Victoria Police’s use of unprecedented tactics on Australian citizens. These 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.
In response to these authoritarian displays, Mitchell stated, “I think that the reason or the issue in why perhaps police feel are either feeling more emboldened to act the way that they are in relation to these CHO directions is because of the messaging that comes from Dan [Andrews]. He’s the premier of our state and he tells us what to do on a daily basis.”
Please SIGN this critical petition which urges the Catholic Church to demand that Big Pharma develop, produce and distribute ethical (non-abortion tainted) COVID vaccines for Catholics...and, anyone else who feels morally obliged to refuse abortion-tainted vaccines!
Over the past 10 months, the Catholic Church's teaching office (the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith - CDF) has quietly directed the Catholic faithful to protest against the use of aborted babies in the production or testing of available COVID vaccines in the West -- all of which use aborted fetal cell lines in either their development or testing phase.
Sadly, this direction has been so quiet that almost no-one knows about it.
At the same time, however, the Pope (see below), along with many other senior prelates, has been loudly promoting the uptake of these same unethically-produced vaccines amongst the Catholic faithful with only a whisper of protest.
It's clear that there is a major disconnect in the Church between word and action on this major moral issue.
But, instead of being a follower, the Church should be a leader in this area -- demanding the development of ethical vaccines (and, other ethically-developed products) for Catholics.**
In fact, there are already Catholic scientists, like Dr. Alan Moy, who are working with adult stem cells to help achieve ethical alternatives, but they have received "very little interest" from the Church, to-date.
And, to be fair, some individual bishops, like Archbishop J. Michael Miller of Vancouver, Canada, have vocally supported non-abortion tainted vaccines, with Archbishop Miller going so far as to donate towards ethical research.
But, it's time to try again and ask Church leaders in the Vatican and its US counterpart, the USCCB (the Catholic bishops' conference in the United States), to be fully consistent in word and deed on the issue of aborted fetal cell lines used to produce vaccines.
Jews have kosher foods and Muslims have halal foods. And, people from both traditions demand such foods - and, their demands are respected. As an example, please click and scroll down here to see all of the halal certificates which McDonald's needs to operate in Saudi Arabia.
So, certainly the Catholic Church could and should loudly demand that pharmaceutical companies develop and produce ethical vaccines for Catholics.
Indeed, the Church could and should ask the faithful to loudly demand ethical vaccines from Big Pharma (by providing phone numbers and email addresses, for example). And, or, the Church could and should commit to sponsoring the development of pro-life pharmaceuticals.
It should be noted here that the Catholic Church teaches that there is NO moral obligation, whatsoever, to accept a vaccine.
But, regrettably, for those who wish to take an ethically-produced COVID vaccine, even the Church's direction is hard to understand, precisely because it is contradictory.
On the one hand, the CDF says that acceptance of an abortion-tainted vaccine constitutes passive/remote material cooperation in the evil of abortion.
On the other hand the CDF also says that the acceptance of abortion-tainted vaccine is morally permissible when no ethically developed and tested vaccine is available.
At the same, however, the CDF paradoxically says that those who accept an unethical vaccine have the moral obligation to protest against it.
But then...there's the recent video of Pope Francis and other senior bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals promoting the COVID vaccines, without protesting against their gravely immoral development and testing, nor calling on Big Pharma to produce an ethical alternative.
So, where the current slate of COVID vaccines is concerned, the Church is apparently saying that you can cooperate with evil if some good may result...if you have no ethical alternative...but, you have to protest the evil...while participating in it.
And, well, the very people who are telling us to protest the unethical vaccines are, themselves, actually promoting them as, "an act of love."
This kind of contradiction - saying one thing and doing another - is unacceptable because it assumes as normal the situation where only unethical vaccines are available for Catholics.
We are asking the Church to stop this seeming servility towards Big Pharma, and start a loud and active campaign promoting the development and production of ethical vaccines.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging Pope Francis and other Vatican authorities, as well as USCCB authorities, to loudly demand that Big Pharma develop and produce ethical vaccines for Catholics, untainted by abortion.

**Actually, to be fully consistent with the Church's teaching on this issue, the Catholic Church should demand that Catholics be offered an "ethical" choice for every major product, from food to cosmetics, from to clothing to medicine, and beyond.
Mitchell continued, “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. 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.”
Mitchell referred to growing discontent among police officers who are being forced — and even threatened — to comply with Andrews’ public health orders. Mitchell explained that police officers have been silenced, and that officers risk being terminated if they express insubordination or show support for anti-government positions. In addition, due to recent changes to their code of practice, Mitchell revealed that police officers have been effectively banned from posting political content on personal social media accounts.
“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,” stated Mitchell.
The growing discontent among police officers was captured in live footage during a heated exchange between a protester and a police officer whose identity was concealed by paramilitary equipment.
After facing a barrage of questions regarding the justification for the violent police response, the unidentified police officer stated, “Just go home, alright. 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 continued, “My wife’s in the same position. She’s out of a job at the moment. I understand,” then reluctantly concluded, “That’s what I get paid to do.”
The violent suppression of anti-lockdown protests and authoritarian public health orders have been attributed to Victorian Premier Dan Andrews, who is currently under investigation by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commision (IBAC). It is alleged that Andrews is involved in the misuse of public funds to branch-stack the Labour party, which is in the process of recruiting and positioning large numbers of loyal individuals within a party in exchange for support for a particular policy or agenda.
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.
