Standing outside the Stratford Centre, a dozen Metropolitan Police officers get ready to stop and search people they suspect are involved in crime. One young man approaches and jokes to his friends ‘I’m not going to be stopped and searched’ – before the uniformed cops pull him aside. He is put in handcuffs while they carry out a full body search, as witnessed by a Metro.co.uk reporter. No drugs, knives or weapons were found – just one example of the tens of thousands of searches that do not end with a ‘positive outcome’, as it’s called by Scotland Yard . There were 128,796 searches for suspected drugs from June 2021 to June 2022, and the Met found drugs on 33,850 occasions. This standalone incident showcases the controversy around stop and search – both for the communities it impacts and for the police who enforce it. Young people from BAME backgrounds are disproportionately affected, with them nine times more likely to be stopped than white people.

A small town in southern Brazil has an unusually high proportion of twins living in it - a phenomenon that could be explained by sinister events during World War II. Candido Godoi lies near the border with Argentina and has a population of around 6,000. The town is famous for having a 10% twin birth rate, which is just over five times more than the average rate for the state of Rio Grande do Sul it is located in. One reason given for this mysterious occurrence has its roots in the horrific experiments of Dr Josef Mengele. The sadistic Nazi, known as the 'Angel of Death', carried out many tests on prisoners in Auschwitz in an attempt to prove the supposed genetic superiority of the Aryan race. The 'Angel of Death' evaded capture and drowned in 1979 in Brazil after suffering a stroke while swimming ( Image: Hulton Archive/Getty Images) He had a particular interest in performing his experiments on identical twins, including amputations and infecting one twin with … [Read more...] about The Brazilian town with staggering amount of German twins after evil Nazi experiments
