Spike Lee: Something smells bad in Ferguson, and it's not just the tear gas 

Film director Spike Lee has been critical of the law enforcement response in Ferguson. On social media, he slammed the state and local police, along with the National Guard saying they "don't have a clue." Lee also hung a tribute to Michael Brown outside of the headquarters of his film company in Brooklyn:

Spike Lee also posted a letter arguing that retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré could be the right person to turn the situation in Ferguson around.

Anderson discussed all of this with Spike Lee.

Anderson also spoke to retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré who said that police in Ferguson need a political objective beyond just controlling people.

    Spike lee doesn't know if his hands were up. He loves to incite. Why doesn't he do something about black on black violence. It's the root cause of death of young black men
