How valuable is a human life? What grants it value? How harmful or beneficial can the loss of a life be?

It is curious to note mankind is the only animal, as far as I know, that kills animals of their own species with emotion. It is true there are other species in which the female eats the male after mating, but that is already established in their genes, and it is done to assure their offspring will be well nourished. But in the human realm, things are quite different.

Throughout history, reasons to kill another man have been various: from defensive to religious and all in between. But there is something slightly paradoxical and more interesting when the State can condemn its citizens to death.

This issue touches moral, theology, legitimacy, legality and even the purpose and limits of the State.

I would like to know if you are in favor of the death penalty or not. If yes, why and in which cases is its execution viable? If not, why?
