Second, and this is important, you'll note that nobody, including yourself, has bothered to actually answer my question.
Your first point isn't a fair comparison at all. It's pretty widely accepted that if you attack a cop, you're gonna have a bad time.
As for your second point, your response is "whatever a jury decides," so I'm not sure that's really any better of an answer.
