42. Court TV had a great show on The Human Experiments last week.
The Stanley Milgram experiment and one done at Stanford (I believe) showed how the average person could morph into a sadistic monster if left without proper guidance and leadership. They showed footage of people who simply took a "role" as a prison guard with people who played the role of prisoners and by Day5 they had to stop the experiment because of the cruelty. And they were just playing roles! It was scary. They applied the results of the experiments to Abu Grahib.
