I wrote about the close ties between neo-nazi JT Ready and Russell Pearce here.
It has now been confirmed that JT READY is dead. These Tea Party extremists are getting out of hand.
Sources: Sheriff candidate JT Ready among 5 dead in Gilbert
GILBERT, AZ – Sources tell ABC15 that a prominent former neo-Nazi is among five people shot and killed Wednesday in a Gilbert neighborhood.
Police say the victims in the Wednesday shooting are two men, two women, and a young girl between 1 and 2 years old.
Sources say J.T. Ready, who was running for Pinal County Sheriff, was involved in the shooting, however it is not clear if he was the gunman or a victim.
Ready was known to be a member of the National Socialist Movement who advocated using violence to stop people from crossing the border. In a 2010 interview with ABC15 he discussed his beliefs and showed off his cache of high-powered weapons.
