The people still cried out for a king and God said "Okay, you can have a king if you want but if you get one it's going to suck for you, just to let you know." Even knowing this they still wanted one, and so yeah.
It has a lot to do with Israel wanting to be seen on the same level as the other kingdoms surrounding it at the time, it's kind of tough to be seen as credible when you're just a bunch of people without a human leader.
