Ok, so what's wrong with this....one is remanded in custody for arson, but out on bail for suspicion of murder. They ARE a flight risk.....What are these judges and Magistrates thinking. Boggles the mind, it's kind of backwards..

Fully agree ,bail is a joke and i feel sorry for the police who catch someone and then spend the rest of the year looking for him as there a lot who fail to turn up for court. Perhaps the Crime Commissioner can tell us how many suspects on bail are on the run.
