If so, please explain why it is that you deem one life more valuable than the next person's life.

Thanks, but I disagree because no person can know what future deeds another might do. In other words, having done something wrong in the past does not mean someone must forever be defined by that past ill action.
To hold yourself equal to a rapist, serial killer, or child abuser is a disservice to yourself. We are all equal until we aren't.
Well actually those are some of the least valuable individuals to the Earth and the people that live on it, but does anyone on Earth provide LESS value than a banker? I think not.
The value comes into play when there is interest for a specific item. Bankers create the possibility of exchange, but there should be something to be exchanged, bankers are only one side of the equation, without the other variable they are nothing.
Which is why mass media is forever telling us how those people are more important than others...when the truth is...they are NOTHING.

Hypocrisy invalidates discourse.
Of course it does, but your example doesn't show it. Rather it stoops to cheap (and typical) mudslinging which does nothing to address her argument and is harmful, rather than helpful, to advancing the debate.
No, it reveals a rather common statist hypocrisy. Blind, are ya?
Name-calling makes you irrelevant. You will never be in the room with adults who are making the decision. Your welcome to your irrelevancy. I really don't care.
LOL! You're welcome to your authoritarian nonsense, but I exist to reveal it for what it is.
So to be clear, you think everyone should have the exact same security over their persons regardless of who they are? A celebrity, a soccer mom, a CEO, a money courier, or the President? And disagreeing with you makes one a hypocritical autocrat?
You're an inventive feller...but you're not very good at it.
I didn't invent it. It's your argument.
People do not hire bodyguards because they feel their lives are worth more than someone else's, but because the threat on their lives are greater.
True, but the person in question feels you do not have the right to defend yourself.
