The police chief of Los Angeles and the district attorney apologized to the son of the late Robert F. Kennedy over an exhibit of evidence of famous crimes that's on display in Las Vegas. The exhibit was supposed to include the suit worn by the senator the night he was shot and killed. Maxwell Kennedy called it "a macabre publicity stunt" in an op-ed piece in the Los Angeles Times newspaper. Chief Charlie Beck and D-A Steve Cooley say they sought to depict the horror of homicide in hopes of deterring violence and never intended to compound the grief of victims' families. The exhibit closed Thursday at a casino hotel where thousands have stood in line to see it.
