This paper addresses the understanding of the young maladaptive minority boys and their behavior in groups and as individuals in the school, on the streets and in a criminal context. We apply group psychology, crime theory, identity theory and stigma to analyze existing research and cases to obtain knowledge in order to gain a perspective in the matter of these young boys. The study shows that the minority boys with a bad or lacking upbringing have a harder time conforming to the Danish school, because they are not able to be up to par with the ethnical Danish students and because of the fact that the Danish school culture is conformed to Danes and their cultural understanding. There can be drawn parallels from the school to the street compared to the group behavior the boys’ exhibit in the school. The groups consisting of ethnical minority boys on the street have a distanced point of view on the police and their task as policemen and that creates tension and problems with stigma.
