Crime Museum: We'd Kill for O.J.'s Acquittal Suit

3/2/2010 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

O.J. Simpson's famous "acquittal suit" may end up in a museum after all -- we're told officials at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment are dyin' to get their Isotoners on it.

As TMZ previously reported, it's highly unlikely the Smithsonian Institution in D.C. will take the dirty laundry -- but a rep for the NMCP tells us the suit would fit perfectly in a temporary exhibit at their place.

The rep, Chief Operating Officer Janine Vaccarello, said the suit could be used as part of an "Assumed Guilty" or "Tried by the Media" theme.

Sounds nice ... but we'd suggest they go with "Got Away with Murder" or "What the Hell Was the Jury Thinking."

Just sayin'.

The attorney for the Goldman family, David Cook, tells TMZ, "We would look at any candidate who would hang this suit in a public closet."

Why pander to the lowest element of society that it would attract. Its a bad commentary on society and the direction its been going in for a long time.

If anything, they should add the uniforms of the Mob of Los Angeles police officers who beat the crap out of Rodney King on Video, but were found completely Innocent of All Charges! Talk about getting away with despicable, inhumane acts!

@Lisa-Centereach - if you would have taken the time to READ the post, it said that the Smithsonian was unlikely to take it. So you kinda look like just another illiterate TMZ fool right now. How classy you seem.

I am a native of DC and am still a district resident. I am disgusted that the Smithsonian would even consider this suit. If it goes to any museum it should go to the crime museum...In my opinion they should throw it in the trash. A wife beater should not be represented in the Smithsonian.

Ya know, O.J. MAY or may NOT have killed his wife,...(the Jury is still out so-to-speak) even though he WAS found INNOCENT BY A JURY OF HIS PEERS...Like Claus von Bullough (Google Him)

But this is yet another example of a Black man being treated differently in America....
They collect objects, poems, paintings etc, from Hitler, Stalin, Sadam Hussein ....

The President of the United States can't even SPEAK to school children on the first day of school, and GOLF PRO cheats on his wife, and is made to feel like He "OWES" the American people an "Apology"????

If that were Ted Bundy's Suit, or one of his paintings or writings, The Smithsonian would JUMP to have it....
When will the Black/White Double standard finally be lifted..?

Better Question: When will white people even admit it exists....?

Well....she was whoring it up and rubbing his face in it. That said, I don't believe he did it.

Don't you agonize too much,Johnny. In case you don't recall, they did get smacked down when their lawful acquital by a jury of their peers was up-ended in a dog and pony show second trial that was fobbed onto the legal system to placate the Black community. So much for having your fair day in court....

Why don't they donate it to the LAPD historical society museum as a reminder of how LAPD screwed up that case...
