We just shoot people here in America.

Indian leaders afraid of 'shoe-cide' attacks.
NDIAN politicians contesting in the general election, fearful of shoes hurled at them by disgruntled voters, have asked for more security and are erecting metal nets at rallies.
Lal Krishna Advani, the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) prime ministerial candidate, was the latest politician to be at the receiving end today, as an angry party worker threw a slipper at him during an election meeting in a central state.

The slipper missed Mr Advani, but was enough for authorities to step up security for all leaders across the country.

  • From what I see on TV, Americans just throw their fists. Gun stuff happens in muted private areas.

  • I dont know why.
    Probably the same reason we:
    Kill innocent babies (abortion)
    Breathe in hazordous chemicals because we enjoy it (smoking)
    Destroy our planet (littering and emissions)
    the list goes on and on...

  • Abortion isn't killing a baby, they are not considered a baby until they take their first breath of air!!! Not saying I'm for abortion but you got it all wrong!

  • Hehehehehehe... I'd like to meet some of those bystanders...I can think of a few politicians I'd like to throw a shoe at.
    Oh, and thanks Carpy... I didn't know that was an insult. It makes sense, though, since showing someone your heel is also an insult in their culture.
