With some of the strictest "stay at home" orders in the world, Melbourne, Australia's second largest city, has become a full-fledged medical police state virtually overnight. Locals are no longer allowed to even leave their homes after dark without fear of persecution by the police, which have been given radical new police-state powers to keep everyone in check.
After local politicians recently declared Melbourne to be in a "state of disaster" due to the plandemic, the hammer quickly dropped on the public's ability to live, work and play. A curfew is now in place between 8:00 pm and 5:00 am, and people are only allowed to leave their houses for "work and essential health, care or safety reasons."
During non-curfew hours, Melbourne residents have been given permission by the government to shop for food or other "essential" items, as well as to receive or give care to others, exercise or work. But under no other circumstances are people allowed to leave their homes – and if they do, they could be raided by police or have their personal property destroyed.
"On at least three or four occasions in the past week we've had to smash the windows of people in cars and pull them out of there so they could provide their details because they weren't telling us where they were going, they weren't adhering to the chief health officer guidelines, they weren't providing their name and their address," stated Victoria police chief commissioner Shane Patton unapologetically about the horrors his police force is inflicting on otherwise innocent "violators" of the state's lockdown provisions.
"This is clearly the biggest job, the biggest commitment that we have at the moment, it's the most important commitment for Victoria police and that is enforcing the chief health officer guidelines," he added.
Similar totalitarian behavior is taking place in the United States as well, including in Los Angeles where area residents are now being told that their utilities will be shut off if they violate the city's social distancing guidelines.

Residents of Melbourne are also prohibited from going to school, attending church services, and even visiting their friends and family members for any reason except to provide "care." Face masks are also mandatory at all times outside the home, even when a person is all alone in a park or open field.
People caught not wearing a mask without a "lawful excuse" are subject to a $200 on-the-spot fine, reports indicate, while those who breach the "stay at home" orders are being ticketed for $1,652 a piece. Anyone who breaks quarantine after testing positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) faces an on-the-spot fine of $5,000.
"The Constitutions of the 'Free World' have been systematically violated, with almost no concern from the people (and even with their support!)," lamented one LifeSiteNews commenter about how freedom is being abolished under the guise of protecting "public health."
"Freedom is gone," this same commenter added. "It may be already much more serious and irreversible than most think."
"Instead of solving real crime, the police are being used to undermine civil liberties under the false pretense of public health," wrote another. "It's the state causing the problem, not Covid-19."
