eye eye

Police state!

Oh man, I've just been hassled by the filth! I was walking into London Bridge station, and a PCSO aught my eye, haughtily beckoned me over to him and said "I know you!" While I was trying to remember someone at school who looked like him he told me I was on their list of people their looking for and asked me my name. I said "Tim" and he told me to tell him the truth or I'd be arrested. Wtf? I showed him my driving license and he (obviously) let me go.

I've obviously no problem with confirming my identity if I resemble a wanted man, but there was no need for him to be so fvcking rude and agressive. I texted my brother-in-law who's a sergeant in the real police, and he didn't seem at all surprised that a PCSO would be so useless.
