Two recent attacks in the past week involving bricks being thrown at his home has brought the issue back into Michael Whitaker's life.
With four security cameras, a fortified fence and 24 hour surveillance, Mr Whitaker has done his best to equip his home against future attacks and says he needs support.
Whitaker says," I have my kids and grand kids here, i am asking for somebody to give me some help before I have to take matters into my own hands ".
Mr Whitaker now keeps his dogs indoors as much as possible for fear of them being targeted and along with his son Michael Jr , they keep a close watch for cars that stop outside,
he hopes that this time the attacks end and don't come back whether its weeks, months or years from now.
