My 70 year old African American father is being harassed by a racist neighbor...can I do anything?

They have had issues for years. The neighbor is in his early 40s, looks like a skinhead, and has a bunch of cars and loud, barking dogs. My dad is a neat freak, and has told him about his hoa violations (I know, but remember that he is 70). I visited a couple of months ago (my dad lives in Portland) and played catch in the front of the house with my nephew. The neighbor man stood there with his arms crossed, in the street, and stared at us for literally 25-30 min. It was so strange. Then, the neighbor left a vehicle in front of my dad's house for a couple of weeks, so my dad went to his house to ask him to move it. He answered the door with a rifle in his hand (in the middle of the day). The last straw was a few days ago, when the neighbor hung a confederate flag. My dad grew in in segregated Mississippi, and his great grandfather was a slave. My siblings and I are livid. My dad wants to go to his house to talk. My brother volunteered to steal the flag. Either way, someone will get hurt. This idiot doesn't want to talk, he is just waiting to shoot someone. My dad is obsessed with this situation though, and isn't eating or sleeping. There must be something that I can do?
