Paolo Gabriele has been charged with stealing secret documents from the Vatican. Paolo is the Pope’s butler which means that he MUST be the criminal and I don’t need Sherlock Holmes to help me uncover this thief. Mr.Gabriele admits to taking the documents, but claims he simply took them in order to help the Pope learn about what was going on since many Vatican officials hit information from their superior. One can only assume the butler also knew of corruption in high offices.
So, what does one do with a whistle blower who admits to stealing documents. He did what anyone in that situation would do-steal the documents and then turn them over to the Pope. Unfortunately, Mr. Gabriele did not turn over this evidence which leads to the conclusion that he is either lying or really does have concern for the Pope.
The story is living proof that the Butler Committed The Crime!
