City of Cumming Mayor Henry Ford Gravitt bans camcorder from public, city council meeting on April 17, 2012 — the same day Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed HB 397 into law. City of Cumming counsel Dana B. Miles stays silent while witnessing his client, the City of Cumming, violate citizen Nydia Tisdale's rights under Georgia law. Tisdale and her camcorder are forcibly removed from the meeting area by armed, uniformed, City of Cumming police officers.
