No. Not at all.

The only instance where I could ever support it would be if a certain inmate were still a real threat to the safety of other inmates or (and probably more importantly) the outside world, despite the best prison technology available. If such a person were to exist, and no prison existed that would keep others safe, then I can see executing him to be okay. I don't really see this happening, though I suppose it is possible.

Otherwise, no.

I can think of several examples were the state killing another person is fine in my books, say if someone rapes babies.

Yes, but I wouldn't get all up in arms if it were eliminated.

I am pro-CP, but would gladly give it up if torture during a life sentence were permitted.

Mild no. Risk of executing an innocent man, expense, lack of deterrent effect outweigh whatever marginal increase in societal utility we get from increasing the level of vengeance we achieve through the penal system.
