“I don’t think he wanted to go back to jail,” Miller said. “I think he really wanted to get away and was looking for a car.” When the detective was making the arrest, he asked Singleton why he did this.
“I didn’t feel like walking,” Singleton said.

Why we have prisons
21-year-old Frank Singleton of West Palm Beach, Florida was released Tuesday from being jailed on a trespassing charge. He immediately tried to carjack a Nissan in the jail’s visitors parking lot! He grabbed the keys from the driver, but he couldn’t leave because he didn’t know how to drive a car with a manual transmission. He was quickly arrested.
