Sounds like the Shrink is either lying, or is an idiot. As seen in NewsDay
[...] Karpf said he viewed White as a friend, and he said he was hurt when White turned him in to police in January 2003 after Karpf revealed a plot to kill people and dump their dismembered bodies in shark-infested waters.
"I didn't feel he would take me literally," Karpf said. "I felt he would take it as it was -- as a fantastic, concocted story. ... It was such a fantastic story, who would believe it?"
Karpf, 55, of Great Neck, testified for a second day Thursday in a medical malpractice suit brought against him by White, 43. White is seeking unspecified monetary compensation.
White was Karpf's patient for more than six years in December 2002, when Karpf said he began sharing details of a plot to commit murder. Talking about the plot was "just an excuse to have this relationship with him," Karpf said.
"I just thought that he would be impressed by the story, by the fact of the life he led," Karpf said, under questioning by White's attorney, Ruth Bernstein, of Manhattan.
"He was the kind of a guy people would be afraid to mess around with." Karpf said he created a list titled, "Motives for Murder," based on something he saw he in a television movie, "The General's Daughter."
Among the "motives" were profit, revenge, humiliation and "homicidal mania," he testified. He said he wrote the list because "I was having a mental breakdown at the time."
He said he did not remember whether he showed the list to White. After learning of the plot, White called police and cooperated with their investigation.
Karpf acknowledged that he asked White for help to buy a gun, a silencer, ammunition, an axe, cleaning supplies and a van. He said he drove with White on Jan. 8, 2003, to a bank to withdraw money. Later that day, they met with an undercover officer posing as a gun dealer, Karpf said. Police said Karpf was arrested after paying the officer $1,600 for a gun, silencer and ammunition.
Karpf pleaded guilty in 2004 to third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and was sentenced to three months in jail, time he already had served. He surrendered his medical license after his guilty plea. Karpf said he didn't need White's help to purchase a weapon.
After his arrest, Karpf said, he was hurt "by the fact that he [White] got the police involved."
