In your last paragraph you said "murder of a police officer" as one of several instances calling for the death penalty. Why is their life anymore valuable than yours or mine? They chose that profession and the risks that go with it. The 14th amendment of the Constitution calls for equal protection for all under the law. All murder should be a capital crime. Anything less is manslaughter which is generally actions causing unintended loss of life.

The constitution guarantees equal treatment of everyone.

Logically therefore, the death penalty is necessary, since without it the life of the murderer is valued more highly than the life of his victims.

The murder of ANY human REQUIRES retribution. Murder, by definition, is the deprivation of the life of an innocent human. This inbalance MUST be adjusted by the offensive person, who, by justice, must DIE to satisfy the death of the innocent.
