Public outrage continues to grow over the arrest of Georgia state Rep. Park Cannon, who was charged with a felony for knocking on the office door of Gov. Brian Kemp as he rubber-stamped a controversial voting bill.

Kemp and other Republican officials were in the room signing SB 202, a wholesale rewrite of Georgia's voting laws giving Republicans enormous control over the state's election apparatus. 

In a video circulated on Twitter, Cannon approached the door and knocked on it before two state troopers grabbed and arrested her. Discussion of the arrest and newly signed bill was amplified on Twitter.

Many compared the law and the arrest to those seen during the 1960s at the height of the Civil Rights Movement
