me: Would you say that I am of good character?
prosecution: I don't know you, I can't answer that.
me: May I draw your attention to section 5 sub paragraph 1 of the Pedlars Act 1871 which states
and suggest that by law, to hold a pedlars certificate I must be of good character, would you agree?Subject as in this Act mentioned, a pedlar’s certificate shall be granted to any person by the chief officer of police in which the person applying for a certificate has, during one month previous to such application, resided, on such officer being satisfied that the applicant is above seventeen years of age, is a person of good character, and in good faith intends to carry on the trade of a pedlar:
prosecution: Well, upon reading of that law I'd have to say Yes
me: Then may I ask if your town has a policy in place to approach a person PROVEN BY LAW to be of good character and then to seize his only means of making a living for himself?
