I'll give full credit to the Sapporo police. I've lived in some locations where a grisly beheading like this could have, or would have, been airly dismissed by the locals as a suicide.

“Her father, 60-year-old psychiatrist Osamu Tamura, allegedly aided in the murder”

A psych, no less. Someone who is supposed to know all about the mind.

Not!

The expert class are humans, too.

Hmm they might be criminally responsible, but as a psychiatris I believe he has enough cash to buy himself and his family out of this case.

We will see how the case develop.

A male naked body, in a entertainment area, ummm, could this be a case of a pimp goes to far and she kills him? Or a customer and he doesn't want to pay? And things go wrong, either way I don't think that I would want to be the police man that goes into that room

Anonymous,

That's quite true, but psychs are not experts in any sense of the word. An expert is someone who can do. An expert violinist can play anything on the violin. An expert painter can paint anything. What can a psych do? Ever hear of someone going into a mental hospital with schizophrenia or depression and coming out a week or two later, beaming and smiling, a well and happy human being, completely cured?

A psych who could do that might be called expert.

I've never met one.

I beg to differ but it’s extremely difficult to dismiss a beheading as a suicide. Doesn’t add up …..

This was funny conducting a psychiatric evaluation on another psychiatrist. Sounds like you have a nutty professor with an experiment going wrong, how would one know what is going on in both of their minds during the evaluation especially if they studied the same field one could play off the other. Ex. Light on Light off

After conducting psychiatric evaluations on the three suspects for six months through Feb. 28, the Sapporo prosecutors concluded they could be held criminally responsible for their actions.

You must have a lot of free time to wonder about things like this.
