Prof. Nicholas Economides on the rise of extremism in Greece

Excerpt from HuffPost Live -- "My point of view is that especially with "Golden Dawn" in Greece right now, this is a reaction by significant parts of the population to the fact that the police doesn't do its job right, there is much more violence in Greece than you expect and the middle class does not want to tolerate. There has been widespread distribution of drugs by immigrants and widespread prostitution by immigrants in middle class neighborhoods and a lot of people are very upset and that has given rise, to some extent, to the Golden Dawn."
