Racist plays loud monkey sounds and recorded slurs to harass Black neighbors

A resident of Virginia Beach, Virginia reportedly plays audio of monkey sounds and recorded racist skits meant to harass a Black family who lives nearby. The Martinez family reported the neighbor to the police but authorities claim they are powerless to stop the horrible behavior. From CNN:

"We noticed a little erratic behavior like these blinking lights that are on a sensor. When my family or any other family leaves or returns to their homes, they all start to blink," [Jannique] Martinez said. "When the sensors are activated, loud music begins to play. He switches the music based on the family that is activating the music."[…]

Martinez says the neighbor plays the monkey noises whenever they arrive or depart their home[…]

"The observed conduct has been reviewed with the City Attorney for potential criminal sanctions; however, it was determined that the activity, though appalling, is not criminally actionable," the Virginia Beach Police Department said in a statement."

He finds ways to stay under the law," Martinez said. "He can't be wrong in the eyes of the law. He doesn't care about the morals."
