18. Good question.

I don't know the answer to that, and can only speculate. And in speculating, I'd look to a basic model of how investigators and prosecutors destabilize "organized crime." In a sense, it's similar to when an intelligence agency destabilizes another country. It involves the timing of actions, be it raids, round-ups, and/or indictments. And making the best use of time can often involve coordinating with other units.

If it wasn't coordinated, it was a coincidence. And as Malcolm Nance often notes, in these contexts, "coincidence" takes a lot of planning.
