1) You could kill an innocent person
Thank you for your time.
For. The replacement could just be the target resolution without the capital punishment part.
But considering the target resolution does very little of substance in regards to capital punishment, while the rest of its clauses are acceptable, and apparently the author has acted dishonestly and the replacement is insufficient, absolutely against.
Don't get me wrong ‒ I do think the death penalty isn't something to be proud of and should be avoided whenever possible, but I can understand that sometimes, in the most exceptional and severe of cases, lifetime imprisonment wouldn't be considered to fully bring justice. I'm therefore very much in favor of having this policy of allowing (not requiring or encouraging or similarly valuing approaches) the individual member-state to determine for itself its legality as a compromise ‒ which I believe to be the best approach to settling such morally highly controversial debates ‒, also keeping in mind that GA#443, the resolution passed following the cited precedent, already puts very sensible restrictions on executions (so far even that some call it a de facto ban on capital punishment!) and thus very effectively ensures due process as humanely as possible and watches closely on capital convictions being doubtlessly airtight.
