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.
Tyson and Cirbie Bishop said they can't understand how they've paid a higher price than the police officer who entered Tyson's home illegally and assaulted him with a Taser. (CBC)
"I was fearful for her life," said Bishop, a GM salesman. "I was watching them pick her up and drop her face on the floor. She was crying."
"Absolutely unreal," said Cirbie Bishop, 31. "Under no circumstances would anyone ever believe that two police officers could just enter your home illegally and do that to you."
