Police Pepper Spray & Arrest Innocent 84-Year Old Geneva Smith In Her Home While Searching For Her Son (Video)

An internal investigation is underway by the Muskogee, Oklahoma Police Department into the pepper spraying and arrest of an innocent 84-year old woman.

Authorities released body cam footage of the violent encounter that occured earlier this month after Geneva Smith threatened legal action.

According to the New York Daily News, police entered Smith's residence while searching for her son Arthur Paul Blackmon. They allege Blackmon drove through a stop sign and refused to halt, before running into his mother's home.

Cops command Blackmon to come out, but he refuses. They kick the door in, confronting the suspect.

"Come here, I'm gonna tase you!" a cop tells Blackmon.

The suspect raises his hands and says "I ain't got nothing," before the officer tasers him causing him to fall to the floor.

Smith comes out of her bedroom to see what's going on. She is told to turn around by a female officer or she'll be pepper sprayed. 40 seconds later that officer sprayed her.

The woman is handcuffed and taken to jail. She was later released when she had to be hospitalized after suffering a panic attack while in police custody.

"I just try to let it go by, but I'm gon' sue them though," Smith told Fox 23. "Police kicked the door in. I come out of my bedroom when they woke me up and I said 'What's going on?" And that's when they pepper sprayed me. [It felt] like rocks or something in your eye."

“This is a very important issue. There is a lot of missing information out there. There is a lot of prejudgment out there and a lot of concern,” said Chief Rex Eskridge.

Amen Kamal,

We have to cometogether and  stop this wave of police violence! But, we first have to realize that we habe the power and use it wisely and not foolishly!! If we ever unite, the world will tremble at our feet! 

One can fight 1,000, two can put 10,000 to flight, a three fold cord is very hard to break!!!

One can fight a thousand, two can put 10,000 to flight
