he was bragging/shouting "my wife has big connections, she knows all big guys in town",
He made some racist comments also. He also tried to threaten us like you don't know the rules in this country, your religion allow kids to play kids in neighbors area like that.

So, I started video tape him with my cellphone, then he started saying you can not video tape, he will send us in jail for this.

I know that my kid made a mistake , we offered them that we will clean it was just chalk mark on outside driveway floor, but seems like it was just an excuse for him to shout on us because we are Hindu/Indian.

So, my concern is if something like this happen again, if he or some body else makes racist comment on us...what we should do?

Note: we have faced racism here before also, somebody had broken our living room big glass window by throwing a stone also.
In some other incident somebody sliced our car tire. we called the cops both time, cop asked do you suspect somebody we said no, after that I don't think police investigated anything. seems like cops are also not cooperating for minorities.
Keep taping him, as long as the kids are on the sidewalk they aren't in his yard, chalk isn't vandalisim as it comes off in the next rainstorm or if they whip out a hose.

Adults should not be yelling at other peoples children, and parents should shout back at grown adults yelling at their kids. No reason to play nice when someone yells at your kid! f' m' .

the neighbor should know how to talk to kids, and could have asked the kid, "where is mommie and daddie ?", as so to have a word with them. this is the right approach. its Not like the kid has a spray can or paint on them. For the neighbor to carry on with some BS dialogue "my wife has big friends" , is some dumb crap. You can potentially get back at them, by finding out who her employer is , and complaining. What makes her so important that you can throw names around.

Just put up a security camera system, you are in your right, and you do not have to explain nothing to your neighbors. You do not have to open your doors to police, no cops can come as a favor, and violate your rights.

I would suggest you keep your 7 years old behind the gate, or in your yard. Do you, and live your life how you see fit. If your neighbor continues to be a jerk, for no reason, talking that Indian crap, tell him to F' off! stick up for yourself, it is the American way! Money talks, lawyers make it happen, I m sure he would like to keep some of his money, and will stop the BS games.
