Do the British cops even remember who Peel was anymore?

In this video, two British police officers come up to a young woman who is filming a building and harass her, imply that she is a terrorist, intimidate her, demand to see her footage. The policeman says that he's harassing her for being "cocky" -- punishing her for failing to cringe sufficiently.
First: there is no damned excuse whatever for this attitude. Period.
Second: A while back orders went out to stop exactly this kind of garbage; apparently the cops don't think they have to pay attention.
Third: in comments someone says these clowns are 'community support officers'; is that supposed to excuse them from obeying their damned orders?

This is friggin' disgusting. I repeat what I said before, I don't want to hear one damned thing about the wonderful cops and system in England again until they've cleared this kind of crap up.

They are Almost-A-Cops. They aren't really law enforcement officers, they are Mall Cops sent out with a general jurisdiction instead of a private property.
