Opener Prompt: Welcome back! The term "mob mentality" refers to the changes in the way people behave when they are in large groups (vs. alone or in smaller groups). It is a negative term. An example of "mob mentality" is when people trample other people to death during sales at big-box stores -- in such cases, none of the people who did the trampling were particularly murderous people, but they behaved differently in a crowd. Why do you think people's behavior changes so drastically in a crowd? What do you think people can do to help stop this kind of behavior?
