The following is a great video showing how people are easily duped by a total stranger into stalking or harassing another total stranger. It is related to the Milgram’s “Obedience to Authority” experiment in that it shows how easily people can be manipulated by those they perceive to have authority. The show at the following link is an episode of “What Would You Do?” with John Quinones. I thought about this video when I saw a stranger in my neighborhood talking to a neighbor, & pointing at my house. This is what Organized Stalking & Electronic Harassment may be (at least partially) about:

Finally here are a couple of links to videos about the Stanford Prison Experiment, which I feel is related:
