Neighbour Shenanigans

This morning my SkyBell door bell caught my neighbour poking a hole in my pony wall. We were on good terms with him years ago when he and his brother bought the house but over the years he’s no longer nice to us. His house is a rental so I’m glad he doesn’t live there full time. I have the full video and I can distinctly hear the wood breaking as he pokes the wall.
Unfortunately our sidewalks are side by side and we don’t have a fence separating our properties as the city lots are 25’ wide in my neighborhood. We put planters to deter the tenants next door from using our sidewalk and steps. We know that we have to rebuild the wall but it’s not necessary to make it worse.
Just venting here.

What is it that you are looking to achieve by the post? Warn us not to live next to your neighbour? I'm confused OP. Help.

Are you sure it was on purpose? The wood looks rotten and wouldn't take much to poke a hole in it as you say, running into it by accident would do the same.

Maybe he's worried about termites living in the rotting wood and was checking it out before it spreads to his place?

OP, you could always speak to the neighbour, it's easy to knock and tell them:

"hey buddy, I know were not on the best of terms but here's a thing. My camera caught you damaging my wall over here. So, you are already escalating a very unfriendly situation between us. I've always tried to maintain cordial relations with you and your twit brother but you seem to ignore my kindness and think that I'm weak or afraid of you. Now, the simplest and easiest thing for you to do right now is apologise and do not touch my pony wall again. If you do decide to take your chances and proceed to invade my privacy and destroy my personal property, I will break each of your fingers so you can not only no longer poke my wall, but hold onto your dick while you piss."

:facepalm: that looks more like there was already a hole there and he was curious so he went to touch it.

I mean, looks like he literally just lightly touch it for <1 sec. (You can tell how much force someone is using by his body, his postures was relax the whole time)
If he can break your knee wall with that touch, he might be the legendary one punch man.

How strong is the neighbour to break wood like that?

Looks exactly the same to me. Sure, the colour balance from the 2 cameras isn't the same. That's no surprise.

OP, looked pretty harmless, like just checking it out. If you want to prevent it, patch it up, or put some crazy hot sauce or other irritant in there.

It looks like he was just checking it out, I don't see any real ill intention there.

The whole thing is rotten to the core and would fall down soon, look at the bottom of that wall! If a couple of fingers do that much damage, imagine what a whole hand/fist would do?

Is your neighbour some sort of Martial Artist ? That finger poke of death is really strong.
