Ignore?
Status Frustration
Young people are often deprived of a strong status in society, and they may experience a sense of frustration. Their lack of responsibility may lead them to drift into delinquency
Katz
suggests young people are attracted to the excitement of edgework. The buzz of risk taking and the excitement of acts like shoplifting and vandalism etc attract the youths
Stanley Cohen
Studied reaction to mods and rockers following distubances at Clacton. He found the press amplified the events and began a moral panic. They demonised the mods which marginalised them and led to further deviant behaviour
Matza
Argues that young people can enter a state of drift as they learn who they are. In this state of drift young people may join gangs or involve in petty crime. They then will justify their behaviour as only temporary lapses of criminality
