Texas To Execute 15 For Charity

DALLAS (CAP) - Texas officials are reportedly mulling over plans to turn its energetic execution program into a lottery-type system that would benefit state charities, according to an anonymous Texas Corrections Department source.

The lottery would only cover 15 executions, initially.

"Nothing is set in stone at this point, but yes, it is being considered," said the official. "The current plan on the table is to use the state lottery structure to sell tickets, then we'd have a drawing, then we'd get an Executioner For The Day."

The EFTD would be responsible for pushing the buttons necessary for the lethal injection mechanism to work.

"This would be a great opportunity for those looking to see the process up close, and charities like Toys For Tots would benefit greatly," he added.

The official denied that the program would be called The Slaughtery or that the electric chair would be reintroduced to increase ticket sales.

If approved by the Texas Corrections Department and the governor, the first tickets could go on sale within six months.
