Malcolm's tour on the railroad ended abruptly after he threatened a railroad cook with his pistol  during a card game. He could not return to selling drugs because the narcotics squad knew him. So  for his remaining two years in New York he was involved in a number of different hustles and rackets  — robberies, numbers, gambling, bootlegging and prostitution. During this time, the hazards of his  job increased with his reputation, and he began to make enemies.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
