Least Competent Criminals

Andre Bacon, 21, was arrested in February in Chicago’s Cragin neighborhood after, police said, he tried to carjack a woman who was about to get in the car in her garage. The woman gave up her keys, but ran out and closed the door as she left, locking Bacon in the garage with no way out. Police arrived minutes later to find Bacon sitting meekly in the driver’s seat.
