Authorities are resting their argument against Kyle Rittenhouse, a boy who shot three people. This resulted in the deaths of two and injured one, amid mass riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
This comes after six days of proof and eyewitness accounts.
The Evidence Clears Kyle
The prosecutors presented drone video of Rittenhouse apparently killing one of the victims, Joseph Rosenbaum, in a central Kenosha used car dealership, to end its case.
The Wisconsin State Forensics Team altered the drone video that shows Rosenbaum chasing Rittenhouse into the parking lot until Rittenhouse turns around and discharges his rifle at close range.
Rosenbaum continued to pursue Rittenhouse, despite his repeated assurances he was a “friend,” according to Kenosha Homicide Detective Martin Howard.
The comments did not deter Rosenbaum from chasing Rittenhouse before he would be shot, according to Howard. Rosenbaum died as a result of his wounds.

The video then showed Rittenhouse fleeing the parking lot. Following the claimed shooting of Rosenbaum, other cameras captured photos of Rittenhouse rushing down a road, being pursued by a throng.
One person jumped at Rittenhouse, attempting to kick him in the head. Meanwhile, another person, Anthony Huber, allegedly attacked Rittenhouse with a skateboard and grabbed for Rittenhouse’s firearm. Rittenhouse then fatally shot Huber.
Gaige Grosskreutz, a lone gunman, attacked Rittenhouse. He raised his hands as if submitting, but then marched forward, his pistol aimed at Rittenhouse.
Grosskreutz’s left forearm was badly injured when Rittenhouse fired his gun. Grosskreutz received first aid treatment, according to witness for the prosecution Jacob Lakowski.
He also stated he unloaded the gun’s magazine, as well as the chamber, which he noticed had one round placed in it. Grosskreutz claimed he did the shooting that struck Rittenhouse, only after pointing the gun at him.
The Prosecution Couldn’t Stand Up to the Evidence
Dr. Douglas Kelley, assistant Milwaukee County forensic pathologist, was the prosecution’s final testimony.
Don’t forget that Facebook immediately labeled Kyle Rittenhouse a mass shooter & shut down every attempt to raise money for his legal defense. PayPal & GoFundMe dumped those efforts too.

Rosenbaum was shot numerous times in the palm, leg, groin, skull, and back, according to Kelley, who did the examinations on Rosenbaum and Huber.
As he was tumbling forward, the deadly shot penetrated his back. Huber was fatally injured in the lungs and heart by a solitary shot to the chest.
“As horrific autopsy photographs were revealed in court, pool journalists reported Rittenhouse as seeming to purposefully look away from the screens,” as per ABC News.
Later on, the defense started presenting its evidence. Nick Smith, their first eyewitness, was a former associate of the used car lot guarded by Rittenhouse, as well as other armed thugs.
He stated the business owner called him and requested him to assist in putting out fires in the parking lot and recruiting a group of individuals to defend the business, which also had two other car lots in the area.
Rittenhouse also provided him bulletproof vests and secured the vehicle lot, according to Smith.
Finally, Rittenhouse talked to him after he fired at the three guys, repeatedly informing him, “I just shot somebody. I had no choice except to shoot someone.”
