"The most absurd apology for authority and law is that they serve to diminish crime. Aside from the fact that the State is itself the greatest criminal, breaking every written and natural law, stealing in the form of taxes, killing in the form of war and capital punishment, it has come to an absolute standstill in coping with crime. It has failed utterly to destroy or even minimize the horrible scourge of its own creation." ~ Emma Goldman
The gang leaders can't decide how to spend the loot, so they decide to "shut down" until they can work it out. Because of thier self-imposed hardship, it should be easy to see and understand what their priorities are.
They shut down the operation of parks, museums, arts, issuing grants, welfare checks, WIC cards, social services...
But not the DEA, ATF, EPA, FBI, CIA, DHS, TSA, or other alphabet agencies. So it seems anything to do with service is non-essential, and anything to do with enFORCEment must carry on at any cost.
The agencies that deal in violence are essential. The agencies that deal in service are not.
It seems these two rival gangs agree on quite a bit more than they let on.
