Listen in, listen Ian!
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.
You should have quoted Mitchell and Webb by asking him if he was acting "in your official capacity as Some Guy."
Being useless and having zero powers to do, well, anything is what PCSOs are known for...
Were you carrying a murderers bag?
True, but I was more concerned that Tim might have been carrying his personal murdering bag, the bag in the style that all serial killers prefer, with the tape and stuff.
I love the implication that "Tim" is a blatently obvious made-up name.
I'll be keeping an eye out for you on Crimewatch...

You've done it now. He'll be all wound up and next thing you know he'll be driving a van full of explosives into the station. At least that's what The Bill told me, and I see no reason to doubt their word.
PCSOs can't even arrest you! I would have just ignored him.
Warning. There's a Tim lookalike on the loose. If you see this man, do not approach him as he may be dangerous.

I'd have said more rude than useless, but well done you for not rising to the bait.
