Turning to jail for a better life

Email

A July newspaper headline said it all: "Homeless man decides jail's better than the streets." A 61-year-old homeless man in Rochester decided that the only way he could get food and a roof over his head was to go to jail. So he broke some windows at an auto dealer, turned himself in at the police department and asked that they put him in jail.

He told police that if they would not arrest him, he would go back and break some more windows.
