    BAD....."I kill for God. I listen to God,"

    MOUNT VERNON, Wash. - "I kill for God. I listen to God," a man accused of a northwest Washington shooting rampage said Friday at a hearing where six charges of first-degree murder and four of first-degree assault were filed against him.



    Isaac Zamora made the chilling comment twice at the brief hearing in Skagit County District Court while investigators wrapped up their work at eight crime scenes. The 28-year-old is being held on $5 million bail in the wake of Tuesday's rampage, which left six people dead and four injured.

    District Court Judge Warren Gilbert read each charge and the penalties, which carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. That doesn't mean the death penalty is off the table, according to the Skagit County prosecutor.

    "Do you talk about it? Sure you talk about it," Prosecutor Rich Weyrich told the Skagit Valley Herald. "Where it goes, it's way too early to decide that."

    Zamora was not required to enter a plea Friday. The charges filed in District Court allow Zamora to be held in custody for 30 days. He will later be formally charged in county Superior Court.

    A hearing has been set for Oct. 3.

    The affidavit for probable cause, which details in support of the charges, remains sealed for 10 more days while the investigation continues.

    The attacks began near Zamora's mother's home near the tiny town of Alger, 70 miles north of Seattle, and continued on Interstate 5. After a high-speed police pursuit, Zamora surrendered at a sheriff's office in Mount Vernon, about 20 miles south of Alger.

    Among the dead was Skagit County Deputy Sheriff Anne Jackson, who had gone to check on Zamora after his mother called authorities.

    Also killed were a man shot at the same location as Jackson; two male construction workers shot nearby; a 48-year-old woman found a few houses away; and a 64-year-old motorist killed along I-5 near a rest stop, authorities said. Two people were wounded near Alger one by stabbing and two were wounded on the freeway, including a state trooper.

    Zamora, who has a long record of run-ins with the law, had been admitted several times to hospitals for mental health treatment and attempted suicide several times, his friends and family said.

    He'll be able to talk God all he wants when they stick a needle in his arm.

    I agree with the needle part, but I doubt it will be God he will be conversing with.

    Not sure about "conversing" either per se, but he will at least hear the charges and the sentence...

    .

    Nah...he'll get his chance just like everyone else.

    And when that conversation is over, it'll get really interesting...

    "I kill for God. I listen to God."
    A higher power almost certainly had nothing to do with his determination sink as low as he could. His depravity is his own. Choices. It all comes down to that.

    Sounds like a schizophrenic to me. Too bad his parents were unable to get him the medical care he desperately needed.

    How do you know he didnt?

    The only medication he needs now is a lead injection.

    Zamora, who has a long record of run-ins with the law, had been admitted several times to hospitals for mental health treatment and attempted suicide several times, his friends and family said.

    He got the help he needed, but the pantywaist doctors decided that he was all better and could function in society.

    Now he needs to meet his God....... Sooner than later preferably.

    There are too many seriously mentally ill and totally deranged people out in society these days.
    They really need to be permanently in hospital under constant care so that this exact sort of stuff can be curtailed.

    These are hallucinations and delusions of grandeur indicative of a psychotic disorder (schizophrenia, or with the suicidal behavior Schizoaffective Disorder). I have many clients like this, and highly doubt any of them will commit this act, but they are med compliant.

    and when they aren't?

    I taken lots of psycho's in the back of a patrol car to the looney farm because they were "off" their meds.
