Michael Stewart said the family was told that they would need a permit to solicit funds. But he also wondered if his cause was being treated fairly. “There have been a lot of fund-raisers for the officers,” he said. “Are they requiring a permit for that too?” On the website, the family has posted stories outlining a disparity in resources between those fighting for the death penalty for their son and those working for his defense. One story states that the playing field currently is stacked 65 to four against Stewart as prosecutors have 52 investigating officers as well as 13 other investigators looking for evidence to support them. It states that Stewart is limited to four on his defense team.
