Two siblings are speaking out for the first time about how Halifax police “invaded” one of their homes in the middle of the night, then assaulted him as he tried to protect his sister from getting seriously hurt.
“It was just like Cops. Or like a movie. The house was dark. The house was quiet … then bang-bang-bang! on my upstairs door,” said Tyson Bishop, 36, recalling the 2008 encounter.
“It was a home invasion. They invaded my home.”
Within seconds, it escalated to one of the officers shooting Bishop with a Taser stun gun when he tried to stop police from hitting his sister in the face.
