Why is it ok for an officer to be in someone’s space? And that person did nothing wrong? ?

 Like what if the person has severe ptsd or gets bad seizures from panicking? Or has Tourette’s or schizophrenia

    People do not have an inviolable right to 'space', and they do not get an exemption from the normal rules of life just because they are nervous or socially awkward. A police officer has a duty to maintain order, and that sometimes has to involve talking to innocent people to check they are innocent, to give them directions for the sake of public order, or to ask if they have witnessed things. If you are a good person who has done nothing wrong, then you should co-operate cheerfully with the police and help them do their job, which they are authorised to do for the good of society as a whole.

    There are cool officers and there are not so cool officers.  If the officer is a good person who doesn't make people nervous, there's no problem.
