After the lunch break, prosecutor Thomas Binger restarted his closing argument by showing video of bystanders trying to provide medical care to Joseph Rosenbaum after Kyle Rittenhouse shot him.
"You want to talk about medics, you want to talk about people who care, you want to talk about people who were there trying to help. You just heard them and you just saw them," Binger said, after playing the clip.
Binger pointed out that the people on the street didn't know Joseph Rosenbaum, "they just knew��somebody needed help."
"And while that is going on, the defendant flees. Callously disregarding the body of the man that he just shot and killed," Binger said.
The prosecutor claimed that as Rittenhouse was running away after the shooting "he's lying to the crowd about what just happened."
Binger then played another clip showing a bystander ask Rittenhouse why he shot Rosenbaum. In the footage, Rittenhouse appears to respond "he pulled a gun."
"The defendant says he pulled a gun. That statement, he pulled a gun, was a lie. It's not true. The defendant knew it wasn't true. He's lying to the crowd as he's running away," Binger said.
He continued: "Joseph Rosenbaum didn't have a gun. The defendant knew he didn't have a gun. The defendant is lying to save his own skin."
Binger said that after Rittenhouse shot Rosenbaum, those around him believed they were "dealing what they perceive to be an active shooter."
"Someone who has just shot someone who is still in possession of the gun who is fleeing the scene and how are we supposed to know where he's going next," Binger added.
The prosecutor said it was "entirely reasonable" for others to view Rittenhouse as a threat.
"This is someone who has committed a criminal act and is putting people in danger. It is entirely reasonable for that crowd to believe at that moment that he is a threat to kill again."
