There's clearly no rehabilitation going on in these places, they're just convenient shelters for St Helens criminals.

When is the law going to be enforced,month in month out,we read of people getting suspended sentences and no one is jailed,here is to his next offence,on this occasion he was unlucky and got caught,how many more occasions in the past has he been thieving and not got caught.
Another example of British justice.

Not everyone who lives in the YMCA is 'scum'. Of course, there are a significant number of people there who are habitually involved in crime, especially petty theft, drugs and alcohol-fuelled violence. However, when I lived there some years ago, there were employed, some professionally, students, foreigners who were on placements, and other people who had been made redundant, experienced relationship break ups, and those who had mental problems: depression and nervous breakdowns, etc. I made some great friends there, none of whom had ever committed any crimes. I doubt very much it is ' a hive of alcoholics and drug fuelled scum', though a minority of its residents might fit this description.
