Last year, several British police officers were put under investigation after a Facebook group was discovered boasting about police car and pedestrian crashes. According to one report, a user wrote about a collision: "I did him a favour. At 82 years old you just shouldn't be on the road and if you are, then most certainly don't go through a green light into the path of an innocent police car."
Members compared notes, shared stories and posted pictures. The group, dubbed Yes I Have Had a Polcol (police collision), later sparked an investigation by Scotland Yard.
