Prosecutor Claims Kyle Rittenhouse ‘Chased Down’ Joseph Rosenbaum Despite Video Showing The Opposite

Lead prosecutor Thomas Binger claimed that Kyle Rittenhouse “chased down” Joseph Rosenbaum in his opening statement on Tuesday. Binger described Rosenbaum, a convicted pedophile, as being “unarmed” when Rittenhouse shot and killed him. “This occurred after [Rittenhouse] chased down Mr. Rosenbaum and confronted him while wielding that AR-15,” Binger said.

Binger later told the jury that they would be shown video from an infrared FBI plane that would prove Rosenbaum was chased by Rittenhouse. He added that we don’t know exactly what was going on at that very moment. We don’t know what words were said,” in regards to the confrontation. Binger also admitted that Rosenbaum had antagonized several armed men on the night of the riot, even urging some to shoot him.

Video shows Rosenbaum chasing Rittenhouse moments before the shooting. He chased Rittenhouse from a nearby gas station and at one point threw a plastic bag at the teenager.  As Rittenhouse was being chased by Rosenbaum, another rioter discharged a handgun.

This was confirmed by Binger and had previously been reported by the New York Times. The shot was fired by rioter Joshua Ziminski, who has been charged with arson. Ziminski and Rosenbaum could be seen starting fires near the gas station during the riot.

The defense showed video of the interaction that revealed the opposite.
