Since June 1, 2020, a mental health clinician and a paramedic have traveled around the city in a white van handling low-level incidents, like trespassing and mental health episodes, that would have otherwise fallen to patrol officers with badges and guns. In its first six months, the Support Team Assisted Response program, or STAR, has responded to 748 incidents. None required police or led to arrests or jail time.

A threat implies it has a chance of succeeding. You think that was possible in Jan 6?

A threat implies intent, not capability.
Success or failure in carrying out that threat doesn't make it legal or illegal.
Success adds on to the charges.
The question isn't whether they could but that they believed they could cancel the electoral vote process.
Belief doesn't make it legal. It doesn't make those that died less dead. It doesn't make the threat less real.
There was intent.
The news was filled with Flynn advising Trump (and encouraging his supporters) to declare Martial Law.
Two pipe bombs were placed for a specific reason. This speaks to intent and a plan.
Pence and Pelosi, the next two in line were targeted for execution.
Two elections were still in play that would determine who held the Senate.
Republicans were objecting to certifying Biden as the clear winner.
Gosar and Cruz object to AZ's electoral college votes.
Mitch McConnell warns that overturning Biden's election would push democracy into a "death spiral."
(is he in on it, too?)
The idiot that got shot and killed deserved it. Funny how you disagree on the defense of our Nation. Did you feel the same way about the Federal building in PDX? Oh. Here's the exposure of the truth coming in: You supported these traitors!
Meanwhile, the same type of scum as these pieces of ---- are setting up gallows at the AZ capitol yelling for Ducey to come out.
and it went on - but for you, nothing to see. Just a bunch of teenagers blowing off a little steam. No one was actually in danger.

You're doing you best to gaslight, but you're doing the opposite. You're exposing a ridiculous attempt as spin and revisionism to justify this attack on our institutions of democracy.

All you are is a traitorous, lying, anti-American piece of ----.

If you think "cracker" is anywhere near the same thing as the n word you're assuming a lot.

This is a decent run-down of the history of the use of the word Cracker:
www.npr.org

I confess, as I've always considered myself a Cracker, I based that on the belief that it came from using whips in the Florida dense brush for herding cattle - something not required out west where the land is open.
