I agree with AGENTROUKA on this. Although every time I view the scene with Daddy Tam trying to convince Simon of the error of his ways in the police station I want to grab, slap and tell him to get his head outta his ass, I don’t think he qualities for the villain status. Then when he states “ I had to walk through that door, which goes on my permanent profile!” he gives away his attitude that family perception by the silver spoon crowd is more important that anything, is disturbing.

I take you point devil's advocate but I think that if anyone was to suggest to a parent that their child was in danger, no matter how unlikely that seemed, they would at least investigate that threat.
It would have taken very little for Mr. Tam to ask to visit his daughter or to ask that Simon would be allowed to visit her.
To refuse to do so, when the only thing that would appear to be at stake is a little embarrasment, seems willful to me, especially if he believed that Simon's concerns were utter lunacy.
Moreover, in the early scenes at the Tam's estate, there seems to be more than a suggestion that Simon is the golden boy of the household and River, despite the fact that she is actually more intelligent, is regarded as less important.
I think Simon would have known "tough love" when he saw it from his father, and the scene at the station aint it.

Mister Tam would know Simon well enough to know that he was not prone to conspiracy theories (he is certainly not the hysterical type) and Simon would know his father well enough to recognize a false threat when he sees one. I think most children do know when their parents are bluffing (I certainly always did) and the scene in the prison is an impersonal threat, not a "tough love" moment.
