I think I know what the difficulty is. I am guessing that you didn't do an "axis equal" following the 'plot' function. That would distort the image and make the it appear as though V3 were not a bisector. Do this:

plot([p2(1),V3(1)+p2(1)],[p2(2),V3(2)+p2(2)], 'g-',...
[p2(1),p1(1)],[p2(2),p1(2)],'r-',...
[p2(1),p3(1)],[p2(2),p3(2)],'b-')
axis equal

This looks like a good angle bisection to me.
