The willful and malicious damage to or destruction of property is known as vandalism. However this is a great offence or crime in several parts and sectors of life, based on the law. In Massachusetts, the name given to such crime for willful and malicious damage to property is felony crime. Whoever that is caught in such crime will be punished as due. Under Michigan law, this is also a great offence which is subjected to punishment.

However, the crime that is charged against someone that damages or destroys someone's property willfully and maliciously is referred to as malicious destruction of property, which is usually referred to as MDOP. Nevertheless, this kind of crime can be described in one English word which is known as vandalism. This can also be reconstructed in another English form known as vandalization. It is such a bad act from a wicked and unproductive mindset.

Vandalism is the intentional destruction of property. It encompasses behavior such as breaking windows, slashing tires, spray painting a wall with graffiti, and destroying a computer system through the perpetuation of a computer virus. The recklessness of the act demonstrates both intent and malice.

Vandalism is a crime that falls under the umbrella of the destruction of property and property damage. Property damage is defined as the harm that is inflicted upon someone's property as a result of another person's negligence or by willful destruction of that person's property. Typically, the destruction of property is vandalism.
