Show no mercy
'JUDGE-THREAT' TEEN BEGS FOR MERCYHe's only 19? That's old enough to know that you don't do such stupid things.
June 22, 2005 -- A Queens teen, accused of making death threats against a federal judge, made a passionate plea for "mercy" as he unsuccessfully tried to be released on bail yesterday.
"I'm only 19. Please have mercy for me, please," wailed Wazir Khan at the hearing in Brooklyn federal court, where he pleaded not guilty to making threats over several weeks ending with his arrest on April 19.
The Guyanese teen allegedly was trying to close the courthouse so that his mother, Bibi Asgar, would not have to face trial for credit-card fraud.
Khan sent one envelope filled with a white powder — which turned out to be innocuous — and a letter threatening "a massacre of judges in the courthouse," authorities said.
He also allegedly threatened to blow up the courthouse and claimed to have smuggled a gun inside.
He deliberately tried to interfere with the dispensation of justice. Let him wail all he wants -- in a cold prison cell.
