Elio Carrion, an airforce security officer just back from Iraq has a run-in with the police in Chino California. He apparently was a passenger in a Chevrolet Corvette that led a police deputy on a short 100 mph car chase and then shot apparently for no reason.

The whole incident was caught on tape by Amateur photographer Jose Luis Valdez.

Elio Carrion was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton

Home video appears to show deputy shoot man who obeyed commands

Did you know that we found a Photo of Elio Carrion taken a while back when he was serving as a security officer?

According to Brown Pride, there was an investigation under way. "Authorities say Elio Carrion was shot following a brief, high-speed chase that ensued when the driver of a Corvette caught speeding through residential streets did not follow the deputy’s orders to pull over. It ended when the car crashed into a fence."

Homeland Stupidity says that "A Chino, Calif., police officer shot an Air Force MP on Sunday night after a short police chase in which the airman was a passenger in the car, while he was appearing to cooperate with instructions the police officer gave." They go on to say that "Police reportedly observed a blue Corvette driving through a residential area in excess of 100 mph (160 km/h) and after a short chase, the driver, Luis Fernando Escobedo, 21, crashed the car. At that point, a local resident grabbed a video camera and videotaped the event."

You can find the Elio Carrion video on the MSNBC site.

High Likelihood of Pelvic Injury - Pelvic g’s were greater than 130 g’s
High Likelihood of Thigh Injury - Thigh (femur) force was greater than 2,250 lbs.
No Data - The instruments used to record the test data malfunctioned.
Seat Too Small - The testing laboratory could not reasonably seat the crash test dummy.
TBT - To Be (Crash) Tested
TBR - To Be Rated; Rollover resistance Ratings are measured based on Static Stability Factor (SSF)
Under Review - The data from this test is being examined for quality assurance. This does not mean the vehicle has an unsatisfactory score.
w/SAB - The vehicle tested was equipped with a side air bag.

NHTSA chooses new vehicles which are predicted to have high sales volume, vehicles which have been redesigned with structural changes, or have improved safety equipment for testing. These vehicles are purchased from dealerships, just as a consumer would, and not supplied by the manufacturer.

NHTSA classifies vehicles by weight. Passenger cars are categorized as mini (1,500-1,999 lbs. curb weight), light (2,000-2,499 lbs. curb weight), compact (2,500-2,999 lbs. curb weight), medium(3,000-3,499 lbs. curb weight) and heavy(3,500lbs.and over curb weight.) The other categories are sport utility vehicles (SUVs), light trucks and vans.

How does NHTSA perform frontal-crash test and rate vehicles?
For testing frontal collisions, crash-test dummies are placed in driver and front passenger seats and secured with the vehicle's seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed barrier at 35 miles per hour (mph), which is equivalent to a head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving at 35 mph. Since the test reflects a crash between two similar vehicles, make sure you compare vehicles from the same weight class, ± 250 lbs., when looking at frontal crash protection ratings.

Instruments measure the force of impact to each dummy's head, chest, and legs. The resulting information indicates a belted person's chances of incurring a serious injury in the event of a crash. In the explanation of ratings below, a serious injury is one requiring immediate hospitalization and may be life threatening.

***** = 10% or less chance of serious injury
**** = 11% to 20% chance of serious injury
*** = 21% to 35% chance of serious injury
** = 36% to 45% chance of serious injury
* = 46% or greater chance of serious injury
