On June 15, 1990 the Detroit Pistons won a second  consecutive basketball title beating Portland 92-90 in  the final seconds of play at the trailblazers court.   After the game, thousands of fans crowded into the  downtown area in jubilant excitement, waving fists  and tee-shirts, dancing on car roofs, tossing and  dribbling basketballs.  The end of the celebration saw  7 dead, 20 gunshot wounds officially reported,  hundreds hurt by gunfire, stabbings and fighting, and  the city streets were littered with shards of glass from  looting.  To fully understand why groups aggress as  they did in Detroit, or when the officers charged with  the beating of Rodney King were acquitted, it is  instructive to seek a deeper understanding of the  factors that affect aggression between individuals.
