What does make the comparison slightly invalid is that officers are trained and should theoretically be able to handle certain 'circumstances' much more competently than a normal person perhaps might, so really they should be treated in a harsher way when they mess up (murder innocent elderly people), but of course they get let off, while normal untrained people generally wouldn't be quite so "lucky"..
