In the previous chapter we explored how vandalism is very much targeted and directed towards certain cultural objects, such as motor vehicles. It is a theme of this chapter that in certain social contexts, criminal damage is not only targeted but almost expected, if not encouraged. To explore the so-called ‘normalisation’ of vandalism in certain contexts, the specific cultural phenomenon of the ‘house party’ will be explored. This is precisely because behaviour which is censured in other social contexts is thought to be ‘the norm’ in this particular context.
