Before everything was on film this is exactly the kind of defense that would have worked. Total deference has been the norm. If not filmed we would have heard about how this giant of a man, crazed on drugs assaulted these poor officers and killed hiself with his exertions. It probably wouldn't have even made to a grand jury.
