I cannot understand sussex police......they arrest a guy for the stabbing, also they have noticed that this guy has failed, previously, to appear at a magistrates court............the
n they bail him..........I would have thought that failing to appear at a magistrate court, ( he broke his bail ) that they would have kept him in custody.

Just because a warrant is issued from a magistrates court doesn't mean that the warrant entitles you to keep them in custody. A lot of warrants for lesser offences such as "non payment of fines" are backed for bail and there is no power to keep them in.
As for bailing for the wounding........if they don't have all the evidence, they have to bail to get it. You only get 24hrs to gather evidence and some (DNA) simply can't be gathered in that time.
Don't hate the player, hate the game.
