The Stanford Prison Experiment website features a slideshow describing the experiment and what happened. There are a few things that set off alarms about drawing too many conclusions about what people 'left on their own' will do--they began with an instituted-from-above intentionally-degrading delousing procedure, and instituted other not-real-prison stuff "to make stuff happen faster" (my words, not theirs).
