Sorry, but I think Avengers disproves this.
Even though it's not shown or implied, Thor *had* to have done a helluva lot of collateral damage in that movie. Knocking cars all over Manhattan, blasting thunderbolts everywhere, smacking down jetbikes and leviathans into crowds below, busting open the Helicarrier in his duel with Hulk....
I don't think he'd worry too much about bystanders in Thor 2, either.
