EVERY VOTER IN PENNSYLVANIA SHOULD SEE THIS BEFORE THEY CAST THEIR VOTE!
A resurfaced video of Democrat senate hopeful John Fetterman has even Democrats now questioning his character.
In the resurfaced video, Fetterman who was the mayor of the town of Braddock was being interviewed by a news reporter.
During the live interview, Fetterman admitted that he chased down a black man with a shotgun and then detained him.
The black man that Fetterman reportedly held down at gunpoint was completely innocent and when police arrived on the scene they too stated the detained man committed no crime.
Watch the damning video here:
Remember when John Fetterman thought he heard gunshots, hopped in his truck, came across a random, innocent black guy who was simply jogging, chased him down, pointed a shotgun at him, and then lied about pointing the shotgun at him? pic.twitter.com/GGRbkNzgea

NBC didn’t deny the incident at all and had these details to report:
During Pennsylvania’s Senate primary, Black Democrats worried that the GOP would target voters with ads about the time Democrat John Fetterman pulled a gun on a Black jogger he wrongly suspected of a crime.
Now it’s on the air.
A political committee backing Fetterman’s opponent in the general election, Republican Mehmet Oz, is launching a 30-second TV ad about the incident that started airing Tuesday on networks that have solid African American viewership, such as Black Entertainment Television, the Oprah Winfrey Network, MSNBC and ESPN, the group, American Leadership Action, said by email. The committee also has a companion 15-second digital ad designed to reach Black voters on their smartphones and social media feeds.
The $500,000 ad campaign comes as Oz, the celebrity TV doctor, has struggled to gain traction since his bruising May 17 primary. At the same time, Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor, easily bested his opponents — even though he had just suffered a life-threatening stroke from which he’s still recovering.
The incident happened nine years ago when Fetterman was mayor of the Pittsburgh-area town of Braddock. He said he heard what he thought was gunfire, saw a man running away, chased him down with his shotgun and detained him until police arrived. The jogger, Chris Miyares, was found at the time to have committed no crime.
Fetterman has acknowledged he made a mistake, but he hasn’t offered a full-throated apology, concerning grassroots activists like the Rev. Mark Kelly Tyler, a top Philadelphia Democratic organizer who helped turn out Black voters in big numbers to aid President Joe Biden 2020 victory in the state.
While serving as mayor of Braddock, PA, a town of only 1,721 (According to Wikipedia. Other sources say it's less than 1,000), John Fetterman brandished a shotgun & was witnessed chasing a black man down the street. Is this what you want as our Senator, Pennsylvanians? pic.twitter.com/zD5vVhynmt

"In 2013, @JohnFetterman pursued a Black jogger. He jumped in his truck & hunted the man down, pointing a shotgun at him to keep him from moving until the real cops arrived. The man was dressed in running clothes & doing exactly that — running, not from a crime but for exercise." pic.twitter.com/rPqqqXSM5I

The only difference between Fetterman and the men who killed Ahmaud Arbery is they pulled the trigger and Fetterman didn’t.
The Hill had more on the story:
In 2013, Fetterman followed the man in his pickup truck and used a 20-gauge shotgun to hold him in place. The man, Christopher Miyares, was wearing running clothes and headphones and was not found to have a weapon on him when police arrived. Miyares has said that Fetterman pointed the gun at his chest, which Fetterman denies.
Fetterman addressed the incident early on in his Senate campaign, rolling out a video explaining his recollection of it in early 2021.
“There was an episode, over eight years ago, where I was outside with my young son who was four years old at the time, and I heard this crushing burst of gunfire coming from a corridor that was the scene of dozens of shootings,” Fetterman said.
Fetterman said in the video that he could “never forgive myself” if he hadn’t done anything.
