As you can see from the video above, a man tried to jump in Pope Benedict XVI's popemobile during his weekly general audience held in St Peter's Square at the Vatican early this morning. The man was wrestled to the ground and beaten senseless by security officers before he could do any damage to his holiness or his holy ride. In fact, not only was the Pope not injured, he didn't even appear to notice the incident. How does a man Vicar of Christ not realize it when a dude jumps a metal barrier onto his heavily armored Fiat Campagnola? And for seriousness, isn't there supposed to be a top on that thing anyway?
