This is the case Dean K Ziegler of Ziegler Chiropractic tried to use against me…. WHAT AN IDIOT!!!

DISCLAIMER:  The intention of this post is to educate the reader about Dean K Ziegler of Ziegler Chiropractic.  There is no intention of harassing, alarming or annoying anyone.  Dean K Ziegler has committed fraud and continued to commit fraud after the fact.  As a matter of public concern, I feel the general public has the right to know of Dean K Zieglers history so fraud is not committed against them.

Elonis v. United States, 13-983 U.S. ___ (2015), is a case heard on December 1, 2014 by the United States Supreme Court on whether conviction of threatening another person over interstate lines (under 18 U.S.C. § 875©)  (SEE!!!  Has nothing to do with harassment.  KNOW THE LAW IF YOUR GOING TO USE IT.) requires proof of subjective intent to threaten, or whether it is enough to show that a “reasonable person” would regard the statement as threatening.[1] In controversy is the fact the purported threats consist of violent rap lyrics written by Anthony Douglas Elonis and posted to Facebook under a pseudonym.[2] The ACLU filed an amicus brief in support of the petitioner.[1] This is the first time the Court has heard a case considering true threats and the limits of speech on social media.[3]

Anthony Elonis was convicted on four counts of threats to local law enforcement, his estranged wife, an FBI agent, and a kindergarten class, relayed through interstate communication. He was sentenced to 44 months in prison.
Elonis’ conviction was based off multiple public Facebook posts he wrote, including the following about his wife: “If I only knew then what I know now… I would have smothered your ass with a pillow. Dumped your body in the back seat. Dropped you off in Toad Creek and made it look like a rape and murder.”
Additionally, he wrote the following, based off a comedy sketch by The Whitest Kids U’ Know, which originally referenced killing the President:
Did you know that it’s illegal for me to say I want to kill my wife?
It’s illegal.
It’s indirect criminal contempt.
It’s one of the only sentences that I’m not allowed to say.
Now it was okay for me to say it right then because I was just telling you that it’s illegal for me to say I want to kill my wife…
Elonis ended the post with the statement, “Art is about pushing limits. I’m willing to go to jail for my constitutional rights. Are you?”
A week later, Elonis threatened local law enforcement and a kindergarten class, which caught the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, after which he wrote a post on Facebook about one of the agents who visited him:
“…Took all the strength I had not to turn the bitch ghost
Pull my knife, flick my wrist, and slit her throat
Leave her bleedin’ from her jugular in the arms of her partner…”
These actions led to Elonis’ indictment and subsequent conviction on four of five counts, which he is challenging in the Supreme Court based on his First Amendment rights.[2][3][4][5]
