Abstract

Vandalism is commonly associated with the malicious destruction of property and is often synonymous with writing on walls, defacing property and other, general acts of defilement. Vandalism could be viewed as revenge against or, at best, simple disregard for dominant, oppressive values that are irrelevant and useless for many boys. I call this theory Vandalism as a form of Delinquent Subcultural Manifestation of Frustration, Jealousy, Revenge and Disregard of Dominant Values.
