|Even if the officers are officially exonerated, if they have a shred of decency they'll never be able to completely overcome the feeling of guilt.|

Totally bizarre, Dale and it just keeps on happening!
That said, there is a difference between institutional overreach, as in legislating people out of their own garages or unwarranted search and seizure, and tragic accidents, such as the shooting of the man on the porch.
Given the snippets of fact that came out of that latter situation's video, you had a drunk raising a gun-like device in an apparently threatening manner toward the police. They don't have the luxury of waiting to see what happens in a case like that. I don't know what additional information will come out of that case, but unless it's compelling I suspect the officers involved will, and should, be exonerated.
Still troubling, though.
