Hey, that's actually a new criticism on my ears, so points for novelty there. Also, points for expressing your opinion in a civil way. I will say though, I didn't see anything wrong with the cop's reaction. We're made to believe that things have been quiet in Gotham. So it's like...woah, watch out kid, sh** is goin' down! Doesn't matter if he's a murderer or not really, he's still Batman and he's still a caped vigilante who does outrageous things with insane technology and has successfully evaded the police in the past. And he's clearly going after the bad guy. The thing is, Gotham was told Batman was a murderer but that doesn't mean they ever really understood
it. Blake questions it.
I hear where you're coming from and I understand you were using a small thing to make a larger point, but I just don't see how that scene falls apart at all. Made sense to me.
