"We are going up to the graveyard, so I can go to bed. So I can make my bed in a tent with the dead people. It's a lot safer than the streets itself."

"If I could go back to jail tommorow, I would. Because everyone's friendly in there, really nice. And yeah, you get your three meals a day. You get your medication on time, same time everyday. ... It's cosy. I've got my own room, my own bed."

"She can't survive out there. (...) She's only a baby."
