In 1978, Paul H. Borroni was sent to prison for murder after he stabbed to death a high school girl who wouldn’t date him.

After nearly 40 years in prison, starting when he was just 17, Borroni wanted to go back, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

So, in an episode straight out of Shawshank Redemption, the ex-con allegedly took a light rail train to the tony suburb of Clayton and robbed CJ Muggs Bar & Grill.

Borroni didn’t have a gun, police say, so he hid his finger underneath his coat, pretending it was a gun, and ordered a waitress to hand over money. After that, he allegedly told the waitress to call the police.

Borroni had been free for a month but was kicked out of his halfway-house and found that a downtown homeless shelter was too full.

“He said he wasn’t going to be homeless,” Police Capt. Stewart Glenn told the newspaper. “He doesn’t want to be out here.”

Borroni committed a gristly murder in 1978, stabbing a high school girl 38 times. He was freed for that crime in 2004 but committed parole violations and only spent 15 months total on the streets, the paper said.

Gergen, who served in the White House under both Republican and Democratic presidents seemed beside himself with anger when he talked about McConnell who notoriously blocked Merrick Garland from the court after being nominated by former President Barack Obama.

"Mitch McConnell has just thrown down the gauntlet, we're going to have a titanic fight over this," Gergen exclaimed. "Yes, as Jeffrey [Toobin] has said, it will mobilize a lot of people on the right, the hunger still to overturn Roe vs Wade to get social issues on the 6-3 court, they will think Donald Trump has delivered on his promises."

Fox News contributor Brit Hume reacted to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by cautioning Republican leaders against replacing the liberal icon before the November election.

Hume made the remarks on Fox News after noting that both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have previously vowed to hypothetically have a nominee approved before the election.

"Lindsey Graham back in 2018... said that even if were were just into the primary season, he would not want to see a nominee advance in the election year," Hume explained. "I think the circumstances may have changed since [McConnell] outlined that."
