Parasiris Granted Bail


The Montreal man who killed a police officer who broke into his house during a 5am drug raid has been granted bail. It's believed to be the first time in Canadian history that someone accused of murdering a police officer has been granted bail. It's a notable ruling, and indicates that Parasiris, who claims he thought the invading officers were criminals, has a strong case.

The judge also ruled that police weren't justified in using a battering ram to enter Parasiris' home, and that the warrant didn't give them permission to enter at night.
