Spike Lee has said that people in the United States "have had it" with police in the wake of the killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

The film director said there was an "epidemic of black men getting killed by the police" leading to a "deep mistrust" of law enforcement.

He also pointed out that the protests were made up of "diverse Americans" suggesting a wider public anger.
