In the eyes of social structure should every life be of equal value. For example, should a scientist's life be held equal to a criminal's in constructing and maintaining society?

Yes.

I disagree with the notion that braking the law can only be a bad thing.

All men are CREATED equal, what they do/say/experience thereafter makes the person more or less valuable to society as a whole. And we, as society, decides who has demonstrated value and the criminal comes up lacking.

If you use a criminal as the example, no. They tear down society. If you take a pipe fitter and hold him next to a college professor, both are law abiding people, both are equal. In your example, no. In mine, I believe yes. Bill Gates is of no more or less value as a human being than some law abiding guy working on a road construction crew.

not equal - some contribute far more to society than others - the best far more than they take

No because criminals do the opposite of “constructing and maintaining” a society.
