    When good people do bad things: Being in a group makes some people lose touch with their personal moral beliefs -- ScienceDaily

    The reference above indicates work that shows people in groups are more likely to harm other people, as long as those other people are not members of their "in-group". This helps to explain why otherwise good people can get carried away in group actions, like protests and riots, and become looters and even attack and physically harm others.
