[[WMG: Assault on Precinct 13 and Escape From New York are on the same timeline.]]
For Assault on Precinct 13, it deals with youth crimes, in particular gang activity. In the film, it seems as if gang activity is something that is slowly getting out of control, and even after the events of the film, there's still going to be more gang violence occurring. This could be the starting point of everything, as Escape From New York's opening narration explains that crime has increased to 400% in 1988 in the United States. Following what appears to be another World War, and after the gas attack that makes New York inhabitable (an explanation that comes from the novel adaptation of EFNY), the United Police Force is formed and New York is turned into a prison. The youth gangs of the 1970s slowly become massive gangs, with maybe even the Duke of New York starting out as a member (a man as powerful as the Duke has to start somewhere).

Now fast forward towards the end of ''Escape from L.A.'', [[spoiler: Snake Plisskin knocks the world out of commission for a while, but it eventually bounces back from it. The United Police Force is disbanded, the entire U.S. probably in shambles due to the revolution that took advantage of the blackout. Mars is eventually colonized, with a lot of people fleeing Earth to be able to get off of it for a better life. But unlike the male-lead countries on Earth, where major mistakes of the past were made by men, Mars opts for a Matriarchy instead, which works. Then the events of ''Ghosts of Mars'' occurs.]]

* Some reckon that Snake is a ShoutOut to The Man With No Name's [[BlingBlingBang Snake handled revolver]]. [[RevolversAreJustBetter Plus, Snake has a preference for revolvers]].

** It's somehow doubtful that someone with a criminal record could become an officer, as Snake did.

** Men, yes. Officers, no. Unless Snake got a FieldPromotion.

* Snake seems very unfamiliar with New York to have been a member of a street gang.

Added DiffLines:

* According to some sources, the explosive pellets were going to be revealed to be a lie with Snake handing over the tape and the countdown timer running out, showing that he was never really in any danger (Carpenter cut this and played it straight in this film, and recycled the whole thing being a lie in the second film).

* Funnily enough, the main character in {{Doomsday}} was imagined as Snake as a woman.

* Considering that the same thing happened in ''Film/EscapeFromLA'', this is very plausible.
