If those characters were meant to reflect the people then it did a poor job for example based on Foley's desicion to hide at home does that suggest everyone has decided to take to their homes? If all Bane's occupation has done is make people hide in their home then to me Gotham really isn't in that much of a bad state.
That is exactly the implication. And to me it means they're too terrified to leave their homes because the city is in control of convicts and terrorists. That certainly doesn't seem like a good state to me...
