What was the name of movie set in early eighties about a bully and old black man in project building. The bully antagonizes all of the elderly residents. At the final boss scene, the old black man - the protagonist - creates some locking arm braces. He fights the bully and defeats him with a bear hug and locks the braces together. Then the cops come. And this kid about 8 years old started banging his forearms together like the old bully used to do. It was an afterschool special type thing.
