s8. A psychiatrist who is instructed by the prosecution to provide a report in a capital (death sentence) case should refuse to do so ???8 is true, it is false if a person awaiting the death

sentence develops a psychotic illness and you are required to make him better, so he can be executed.

all cases of murder are routinely referred to psychiatrist. here he is still undergoing trail.

Shoplifting:

Shoplifting has become a national epidemic. Few shoplifters have true kleptomania; the majority are teenagers and young adults who “boost” in pairs or small groups for “kicks,” as well as goods, and do not have a major psychiatric disorder.

Acute intoxication with drugs or alcohol may precipitate theft in an individual with another psychiatric disorder or without significant psychopathology.

Patients with Alzheimer's disease or other dementing organic illness may leave a store without paying owing to forgetfulness, rather than larcenous intent.

Malingering kleptomania is common in apprehended antisocial types, as well as nonantisocial youthful shoplifters. Given a sufficiently intelligent perpetrator, the fictive version can be quite difficult to distinguish from the genuine disorder.

Episodes of stealing are commonplace in childhood, for example, taking change from a parent's purse or pockets. The overwhelming majority of these are transient and reflect no serious psychological disturbance.

Dear Dr. Khuram,

I think you are right. The question asked is shoplifting highly likely to recur. If it is kleptomania it reccurs but if it is secondary to mania or command hallucinations then the chace of reoccurence is less. So, shoplifting associated with mental illnes highly likely to recur is false.
