I'd say severely wounded. They would want the guy for interrogation.

Your friend is an idiot. You can't just kill somebody because they threw their shoe. They would have been tasered.

False. If you watch the vid, President Bush holds out his hand at one of the secret service guys waving them off.

Got hand it to him for dodging the shoes. That guy was up close and he really chucked them things.
