Should Trayvon Martin's hoodie be displayed in a museum?

A spokeswoman for the Smithsonian Institution says it has not made any efforts to acquire the hoodie that Trayvon Martin was wearing the night he was killed.

Still, the Director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opens in 2015, seemed to have a different message, telling ABC News: "It became the symbolic way to talk about the Trayvon Martin case. It's rare that you get one artifact that really becomes the symbol."

Should this symbol become an artifact in a national museum?

    No I don't think so, he wasn't a hero, just a kid in the wrong place and time.
