Perhaps I am getting too old , but we and our newsmedia try to make anti social behaviour respectable by bringing ourselfs down to the perbetrators own language. Newsmedia, Police, public profile people, etc now always use the word "Tagging" or "Tagger" . It is vandalism or graffiti . The same with an arsonist . that act is often called "Torching' givning a degree of respecibility to it. The same with this stupid craze of inhaling from gas cannisters or sniffing it and everyone calls it "huffing" . Perhaps the offenders think its cool to have their own language for their behaviour, but for society to copy it does not seem right.
