When they came out into the street the hoodlum crowd had dispersed.
One hoodlum left the ranks and started off toward the barracks-room.
He knew he was a hoodlum; the trolley conductors had told him that.
The hoodlum element was there, of course, but it was not the leading element.
He had been a hoodlum there, and had helped to hang Chinese.
The hoodlum crowd nudged one another, blinked, winked, and looked as if expecting developments of some fun.
The hoodlum gang had suddenly appeared from the alleyway, and forming a circle, surrounded them.
The hoodlum made a great ado of posing and exercising his fists in a scientific way.
The sailor pushed his hands through the hole, grabbed the hoodlum by the throat, and exerted a steady pressure.
While the Dutch boy sat on the hoodlum's feet, the sailor was able to push his hands into the thief's pockets.
