J.T. Ready was my friend. He was a patriotic American, despite any negative views other people may have. Mr Ready risked his life to protect this country from drugs and worked hard to help other people. J.T. Ready was the last person on Earth that would harm others, especially a child. In regards to the circumstances surrounding his death, I'm not jumping to any conclusions or making any unscientific speculations at this time.
Gilbert mass shooting: Horror in wake of vigilante's final act
Harry Hughes, a member of the National Socialist Movement who also took part in armed border patrols, expressed shock at Wednesday's mayhem.
"I think this is horrible," he said. "I want everyone to know J.T. Ready was the last person on Earth I'd figure to have done anything to hurt a child. It really caught me off guard. Despite all the rhetoric and the stuff we're going to hear about him being the evil Nazi, he was a good man."
Wednesday evening, Hughes was being interviewed by police, federal agents and prosecutors at his Pinal County residence in Maricopa, which Ready listed as his home address in elections paperwork that also showed Amber Mederos as campaign treasurer. http://www.azcentral.com/community/gilbert/articles/2012/05/02/20120502gilbert-mass-shooting-horrors-vigilante-jt-ready-final-act.html#ixzz1tmvkso6X
Alleged gunman had history with white supremacy movement
"He impressed me as being a charismatic and sincere individual," said Harry Hughes, the current director of the NSM in Arizona. Hughes said he met Ready three years ago Wednesday at an immigration rally. They last saw each other just a couple of weeks ago, and Hughes said he's sad to see his friend involved in such a tragedy.
"He's forever going to be unfairly branded as a hate monger, as a white supremacist," Hughes said. But not everyone shares that view of Ready. http://www.kpho.com/story/18071205/alleged-gunman-had-history-with-white-supremacy-movement
Slaughter in Arizona, Suicide Now Cartel Murder, Military, FBI, ICE, Homeland Security (Updated hourly)
Our sources tell us that Jason Todd Ready, originally thought to be the killer, was an FBI Confidential Informant. But informing on what? White supremacists he was one time aligned with, the “occupy movement” he attempted to join or cartel drug smugglers that his organization, US Border Guards, has been working to stop.
Ready’s group, sometimes a few, sometimes Ready alone, military gear, armed to the teeth, patrolled the Arizona border with Mexico and publicly claimed to be putting a “dent” into cartel business. http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/05/02/breaking-candidate-for-pinal-sheriff-jt-ready-goes-on-murder-suicide-rampage/
J.T. Ready was the kind of man that would stop to help a stranded motorist change a tire. He would give distressed illegal aliens water. J.T. was a self sacrificing and caring individual. Unfortunately, he was grossly misunderstood. I find it cruel and tasteless that people that never met the man could make the horrendous comments and statements following this terrible and sad day. May you all rot. . .
During Easter weekend, I found myself stranded (stuck in some sand) in the middle of the Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range. After being a missing person for nearly three days and failed attempts by the US Marines and the US Border Patrol to locate me (I was hiding in plain sight.), none other than J.T. Ready, the US Border Guard, the Sonoran Desert Patrol and others arrived at my POS and literally pulled me out of a jam. That's the kind of man J.T. Ready was. He dropped whatever he was doing to come to the aid of a friend. For that, I will never forget him. May he rest in peace.
This is not a drill. J.T. is dead.
I'm not jumping to any conclusions, but it could have been an ambush. I will have more detail, later. In the mean time, watch you 6's.

“I'm a 9th generation American and patriot (1737). My forefathers served in the Pennsylvania Militia. On June 27, 1781, they were called to perform a tour of duty. I'm still protecting freedom and securing the border, 275 years later.” --Harry L Hughes III
