A Chicago man remains in critical condition after police shot him with a taser for 24 seconds. Police asked the local sheriff to investigate the use of a taser on Kevin Piskura because of the seriousness of his injuries. Piskura allegedly began fighting with officers when they responded to reports of a scuffle at a local bar. Officers called an ambulance when Piskura stopped breathing.
