    I don’t think the point is that it’s not a threat. I think it’s more like if you set fire to a house before robbing the neighbouring house, if that makes sense. It’s not that the house on fire isn’t important, but more so that it was meant to distract everyone.

      That might technically work, but in the real world, it wouldn’t make much sense. Sure you could set something on fire to commit a robbery nearby, but that’s a lot of effort to do what you were already doing.

      Regarding OPs argument, it doesn’t strike me as making that much sense, and considering the lack of evidence, Hanlon’s Razor dictates that it’s unlikely.
