That'll draw 'em in, I'm sure

US town plans mock execution to attract tourists

Doug Ellison, 49, has asked the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission for permission to build the attraction, and intends to stage a mock hanging - with his own neck in the noose. [...]

The commission is expected to vote on the proposal next month, and Mr Ellison said he was hopeful of securing approval.

“My vision is to stage a shooting, where I'd gun down someone in the street, have a trial and a hanging, all within 20 or so minutes,” he said. “Anything longer than that and the tourists would lose interest.”
